LG Optimus 2 Review
LG has rolled out a new Optimus series mobile phone with little or negligible improvisation. Optimus line of LG smartphones is popular as they are offered at a relatively cheap price. With the new LG Optimus 2, LG has plans to do the same again. This handset has similarities to the earlier Optimus models and its specs list is certainly very poor. This successor device does not give any reason to its buyers to choose it, despite of the fact that, it runs the Android Gingerbread operating system. This might raise expectations but the fact is that there is nothing really impressive about this phone.
LG Optimus 2 is a CDMA phone and works only on standard CDMA (800/1900 MHz frequency) network and for data; it gets support over 3G EV-DO Rev. A.The modest candy bar design of LG Optimus 2 bears a 3.2-inch, 16 million color capacitive touch screen. To get support and delivering a good performance, it runs on an 800 MHz processor. The memory of the phone is expandable and LG Optimus 2 can accommodate microSD cards of up to 32 GB capacity. Faster typing is facilitated by the Swype input for the virtual keyboard. There a Bluetooth 3.0, GPS and Wi-Fi for data sharing and connectivity.
There is a 3.2-megapixels camera in LG Optimus 2 with autofocus but it does not produce some extra-ordinary results but it is capable of video recording. The multimedia department is studded with a music player and FM radio too. However, there is no front-facing secondary camera in LG Optimus 2. It is a low-end or mid-range device with specs exactly matching up to those standards only.
LG Optimus 2 is not a worthy successor to the original LG Optimus and much before its official announcement, this phone has been doomed. It has a poor specs list with nothing new on offer. A poor replica of a better smartphone really has minimum chances of doing well in the tough competition of current times. There is an array of some decent features like a 3.2-inch touch display, 800MHz processor, 3.2MP rear camera, Bluetooth 3.0 with EDR, GPS, Wi-Fi, and support for microSD cards but all that is not enough to keep the LG Optimus alive amidst tough competition. If the phone was a little sturdy and had been priced more reasonably, it might had a chance but for now it is in a tight position.
LG Optimus 2 is a smart, stylish and innovative mobile phone that meets your needs and suits your lifestyle as it offers solution to help you increase connections and productivity so that you can do more whenever you want and wherever you are.

LG smartphones fall under Optimus series and Optimus 2 is another sibling of the same series that boasts to have long battery backup and provides better connectivity and functionalities. There is a metal chrome rim that separates the screen from the physical buttons where the chassis are all plastic in touch that provide better grip to your hand and the metal bezel all around the device provides protection to the device from dust to enter inside the body. There is no separate key for volume rocker but there is USB port on the right side of the body, 3.5 mm jack on the top along with a dedicated camera button right at the lower end of the right part of the device that allows the user to have direct access to the camera.
