LG Optimus L9 Reviews


"...there's quite a lot to like about the LG Optimus L9. Its key selling point is the big screen, which is rather hard to come by in this price range. Retina levels of pixel density were out of the question - should we say, budget - but qHD doesn't look too bad."

"Battery life was also a pretty nice experience, and the 2150 mAh battery is responsible for that. I easily managed to squeeze out a full day of juice from the battery, but as you might have guess, results will likely vary depending on how you use your phone. With WiFi on constantly, the screen full..."

"The lock screen on the Optimus L9 is also worth mentioning. When you put your finger on the screen to swipe and unlock it, a circle appears and gradually gets larger as you swipe.

"In the hands, the L9 is comfortable to hold, even with the slightly softened hard angles, but they are very plasticky, although we’re appreciative of the textured back on offer for the L9, bringing to mind the feel Samsung produced with its textured back on the original Galaxy Note. This back helps ..."

"We'll be frank: if you want a phone with a top-notch camera, the L9 isn't for you. The 5-megapixel sensor works fine for simple snapshots, but users who want something that can replace their point-and-shoots would probably scoff at the amateurish image quality on display here. Most of our sample sho..."

"Photo quality was impressive. Even in a cloudy outdoor shot, the camera took detailed images. Edges were well-defined, objects were in focus, and small details like blades of grass or running water could be distinguished. Though dark hues were hard to differentiate, colors appeared true to life for ..."
