This review is from: LG Optimus L3 II E425 Black 1.0GHz Unlocked GSM Android Cell Phone
Pros: Compact size Strong battery
Cons: Comes with preloaded garbage from Telstra
Other Thoughts: I wanted a compact phone meant for calls and texting only. Battery life was high on the priority list. This phone is the best I found. I am surrounded by PC's at work and home so internet connection was not important for a phone.
The phone came with Telstra software that bogged it down. I rooted the phone and removed all the bloat ware. Now I get 5 to 6 days on a charge with light usage. I also have a Pebble watch connected through bluetooth and it works great. I use Battery Doctor app to save battery also.
Overall the phone is well made and works great for calls and text. Sound quality is good. I used a second phone and wife so I could hear what the mic sounds like from the other end. The mic sound quality is clear and very good.
I took the phone to AT&T and they added a SIM card and there were no problems.
The haptic feedback is poor compared to other phones. It is just a click instead of a buzz like other phones.
If you want a compact phone with a big battery, this is the unit. If you can find it without the extra software loaded even better. If I would have known the Telstra software was on it I would not have bought it. Newegg could have made this clearer. Rooting the phone was the only way to fix this. But I don't know if this phone is available anywhere without the bloatware installed.
