LG Optimus L3 E400

Last Sunday, i bought a new smartphone which is LG Optimus L3 E400. This is an android phone that has 2.3 Gingerbread OS and 800 MHz processor with 384MB of RAM. They say it has the same price with Samsung Galaxy Y which is P5,990 but i just bought this for P5,834 at LG store in Megamall.

Reason why i bought LG Optimus L3 E400 instead of Samsung Galaxy Y:

I am not a Samsung fan and i used to have Samsung Galaxy Mini. Transitions and scrolling are not smooth and sluggish, there's always a delay when opening apps. I am not happy with the experience, then eventually i returned the unit. I need to buy a cheap android phone and I'm afraid to buy the entry level of Samsung which is Samsung Galaxy Y because i might encounter the problem i experienced with my previous Samsung phone.

Base from the other reviews, LG Optimus L3 E400 is a great entry level smartphone.

Specifications of LG:

Display Type TFT LCD capacitive touch 256 colors
Display Size (320 x 240 pixels) 125 ppi
Card Slot microSD up to 32GB
Memory 1GB Internal, 384MB RAM
Speed HSDPA 3.6Mbps
WLAN Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth V3.0
USB V2.0
Camera 3 megapixel with autofocus
Video QVGA @15fps
Platform Android OS v2.3 Gingerbread
CPU 800MHz processor
Sensor Accelerometer, Proximity, Compass

Batter Li-Ion 1500 mAh

So far so good, no problem with my LG phone. It is cheaper compare to the other entry level android phone. It's not sluggish, no problem with scrolling, it has a smooth transitions. It's compatible with the addictive game which is Temple Run. There's a little bit of delay but atleast it's compatible.
