LG Optimus V Reviews

Average Score:

73/100

80/100

"The Optimus V makes a fine multimedia device as well. It comes with a 2GB microSD card preloaded in the side-mounted slot. My 32GB SanDisk card worked fine, and there is also 157MB of free internal memory. There's a standard-size 3.5mm headphone jack on top of the phone and music sounded fine over a wired headset." 4/5

"Phone is great. Tutorials for every app. Calendar a little basic but works well. Downloaded Colornote for notes and check lists. No gliches and works well.. Lots of options to fit what you need. Love the swipe for texting. Also love the voice search...." 76/100

"Camera quality was good, and they especially look good on the phones bright screen. Viewing them on a computer obviously results in the images losing a little bit of their quality, but still displayed very nice clarity. The shutter is controlled with a two stage dedicated camera button. However, there is no flash so taking pictures in dim light leads to poor shots. " 3.5/5

"The Optimus V from Virgin Mobile, with the aforementioned specs, is what you would call a standard mid-range device. While that list may not blow you away, don't be fooled by the spec sheet. These Optimus phones are some of the best mid-range Android devices you can get. I've been consistently impressed by the performance of the Optimus V and would definitely recommend it for anyone who is looking for an affordable smartphone option."

"It has 3G in the form of EV-DO Rev. A, stereo Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS. The GPS can be used with a variety of location-based apps, like Google Maps, Latitude, Places, and Scvngr, a scavenger hunt-inspired app. Unlike most of the other Optimus handsets, the Optimus V does not have mobile hot-spot capabilities, which is a disappointment. " 3/5 Stars

"In my test calls made on Virgin Mobile's network, the Optimus V delivered excellent call quality. Calls came through loud and clear on both ends of the line. If you don't want to answer an incoming call, the Optimus V lets you respond with a ready-made "Excuse Message." I like the idea -- which lets you send a text back to the caller, letting them know you're unavailable -- but I found that I kept hitting the "Excuse Message" icon accidentally when trying to answer calls. The Optimus V's relatively small screen forces this icon to sit too close to the slider you use to answer incoming calls. " 3.5/5 Stars
