Most of us live on our cell phones, so having a lost or broken smart phone is a terrifying concept, especially if don’t qualify for an upgrade yet. There’s nothing worse than having to downgrade to a budget basic phone when you’re used to a top of the line mobile device. Well, if you need a budget smart phone that has all the functions you need, then the LG Optimus L90 should be at the top of your list.
The L90 is smaller than many of the phones on the market today, but what it lacks in size it definitely makes up for in power. The stunning 4.7 inch display captures your pictures and video in perfect true-to-life color. While the VGA forward facing camera doesn’t deliver the finest picture quality, the 5 MP rear-facing camera definitely makes up for it.
One of the most attractive features of this phone is the battery life. The phone can last up to two days on a single charge with average to heavy usage. The phone being used for this review was taken off of the charger 12 hours ago and despite being used all day, it has only dropped to 61% battery life.
Have you ever grown tired of having to hit your power or home button to bring your phone’s screen back to life? The L90’s ‘’Knock On’’ function gives you a unique and playful way to turn on your phone. Simply tap the screen twice to bring up your lock screen, then swipe or tap to your heart’s content.
Other fantastic features of the L90 include the QuickMemo, which allows you to write notes directly on the screen, and the Quick Translator, which can help you translate signs and paperwork when you’re traveling abroad.
The quad core processor runs Android 4.4 KitKat smoothly and efficiently, without compromising battery life or device functionality. With all of these fantastic features, you may think that this phone couldn’t get any better, but you’d be wrong. The best feature of all is the price. The phone itself uses the GSM network, making it compatible with T-Mobile and AT&T phones. It uses a micro SIM card and also has an expandable memory slot for up to 32GB of additional storage.
Overall, the LG Optimus 90 is an amazing smart phone that fits easily into any budget.
