LG shoots for entry-level dominance with its L5 II smartphone, which boasts a good display and some added Android functionality.
PROS
Great screen for the price range; voice activated pictures; some value added software features from LG; affordable; and light design that is comfortable to hold and easily slips into any pocket.
CONS
Single-core CPU and half a GB RAM do not allow for blistering multitasking performance; no real wow factor in the design; average camera performance; no front-facing snapper; and VGA video recording quality only.
VERDICT
If you need a budget smartphone there are plenty of devices to choose from but few will offer a screen this good along for a sub-R2k price.
