LG pulled back the curtain on its L series II a little early, revealing the Optimus L3 II, L5 II, and L7 II a couple weeks back. It brought them all along to the Mobile World Congress this week, and we’re going hands-on with the lot of them to show you what to expect from these budget-friendly models. Right now, it’s time to look at the L3 II and the L5 II.
These models are quite a bit lower-end than LG’s other budget lineup, the F series, lacking LTE modems and featuring some much more pocketbook-friendly specs. The L3 II has a tiny 3.2-inch QVGA display, for instance, while the L5 II steps that up quite a bit to a 4.0-inch WVGA component. The former gets a 3.2-megapixel camera (no flash), while the latter has a 5.0-megapixel shooter.
Both phones run 1GHz SoCs, with a Qualcomm chip in the L3 II and a Mediatek processor in the L5 II.
