"It's a comfortable size to hold and handle, especially if you aren't a fan of king-sized phones. The all-plastic construction feels a bit chintzy, but the black, textured back panel and silver plastic surrounding the glass face look fairly innocuous. " 3.5/5

"It is not going to stand up to a heavy graphics load, produce images like the HTC One series or deliver the speed of a quad core processor, but for those on a budget looking to run some basic apps and browse the web the Optimus Elite will not disappoint." 7/10 Stars

"Probably one of the most impressive pieces of hardware in the LG Optimus Elite is the 5MP shooter. Sure, it's incredibly basic, takes 480p video, and is essentially as no-frills as you can get, but it's 5MP on a super low-end budget device. (It could have just as easily been 3MP.)"

"The guys have come up with some pros and cons for the LG Optimus Elite, the cons are that the screen resolution is poor, and camera results are so so, whilst the pros are a thin design with a solid build, good performance for the price and good battery life."

"The LG Optimus Elite packs a couple of interesting extras, but at its core it's no more than an average Android phone with a less than elite design." 3/5 Stars

Negative

"I'm testing the phone in the Dallas area and honestly, 3G speeds have been pretty terrible. The Optimus Elite is not a 4G phone so you're stuck on Sprint's 3G network. Over the past week or so that I've had the phone, I'm getting average download speeds of about 200 kbps. "
