LG Optimus L9: Is this a success for LG?


The LG Optimus L9 is a thin and light phone. Its dimensions are 5.03 inches tall by 2.63 inches wide, 0.36 inches thick, and weighs just 4.16 ounces. The design features a power button, volume rocker, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Mirco-USB charging port. The display features a 4.5 inch qHD screen. It has good sharpness and colors and responds well to the touch of a human finger.

Hardware, Software, & Performance

The LG Optimus L9 runs on Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. The user interface, LG’s Optimus 3.0, has great functionality and works well with the operating system. The Optimus L9 has a 1GHz dual-core Central processing unit for decent speed and performance. It supports Wi-Fi and 4G networks, adding to its potential speed. The 2,150mAh battery is removable and has average life. The call quality is also just average, and the speakerphone is subpar.

Features and Apps

The LG Optimus L9 comes preloaded with lots of features and apps. Google preloads the L9 with apps like Gmail, Chrome, Google+, Search, YouTube, Maps and Navigation, and Play Store for downloading movies, music, and more. T-Mobile added apps like hotline, 411 & more, Game Base, and More for Me which finds local deals based on the users interests.

Third party and other apps and features include mobile hot spot capabilities, visual voicemail, Lookout Security, Smartshare, FileShare, Amazon Kindle, Slacker Radio, Polaris Office 4.0, calculator, clock, address book, and QuickMemo which allows the user to take notes or draw sketches with their fingers or using a stylus.

The Optimus L9 has a 5MP rear facing camera. The camera has features like autofocus, flash, touch focus, 15x digital zoom, face tracking, geotagging, timer, continuous shot, panorama, scene modes, balances, effects, and a voice shutter function that allows the user to command the phone to take a picture using only their voice.

The user can also change background or distort faces using live modes, and can take a picture while recording video.  The Optimus L9 also has a VGA front facing camera. The front facing camera and 1080p HD video recording function have a lot of the same features as the 5MP camera does. Overall, the photo and video quality are very good.


The LG Optimus L9 runs on Android 4.0, supports 4G networks, has a fast dual-core CPU, and the camera and 1080p HD video have decent quality images with lots of features.


The Optimus L9 comes with lots of bloatware, the battery life is short, and the speakerphone quality is below average.

It is a good idea to check out up-to-date reviews on the latest mobile phones.  Compare the Optimus L9 with other LG products to figure out which mobile phone best suits your needs.
