LG continuously expands its Android model range with the name of Optimus and offers an exciting budget phone to stroke in the lower price segment with the Optimus.

Bright display, cool features

The simple appearance of the Optimus hub for 199 euros is pure understatement, because the LG has a lot to offer. About the 3.5-inch touch screen. He is sharp and with up to 625 cd/m2 also super bright content. The resolution is ordinary 320 x 480 pixels, so, even large Web sites can be overcome with relatively little Scrollarbeit.

As usual also LG missed its own UI the Andoid 2.3 Smartphone. So, the user about can according to their own taste to rearrange the icons of the main menu and select the appearance as a category, list or page. Also the homescreen can be adapted in various ways to your needs. Total exemplary simply manages the operation of the LG.

The views of the equipment list brings little exciting days, yet are all important features such as HSDPA, A-GPS and also n Wi-FI on board. Only the fast load data via HSUPA is on the missing list. Networking is capitalized when the Optimus hub: thanks to smart about photos to share and streamed movies on DLNA-enabled TV and media files to be WiFi cast via WiFi-direct connection to compatible smartphones transferred.

Brisk tempo, long endurance

But not only the equipment moves at a proper level, also the technical basis right. As the heart of an 800 MHz Qualcomm processor is used. The internal memory is usually significantly slimmed down as in this class, and so are only 154 MB of internal capacity available to the user. LG puts Optimus hub as a 2 GB large memory card micro-SD slot under the battery cover at.

For practical use, the LG is generally well prepared, as demonstrated by the results from the lab. So hub not so fast is the Optimus run out of steam: the talk time moves with over 11 hours in the E-NET strong regions. This also applies to the typical endurance, that more than watching with 5:07 hours. It is not quite so rosy ordered the noisy acoustics and especially the weak UMTS reception. Too bad, because in the GSM network the LG ALLROUNDER functions quite well.
