The new Optimus Elite was named for its unique “elite” design. Creators of the mobile device designed the phone to have a sleek, utilitarian look. It spans 4.58 inches tall and 2.47 inches wide which makes it roughly the size of an iPhone 4. The phone also boasts of a 3.5 inch display that makes it great for watching movies. It is ULE Platinum-certified and is made with 50 percent recycled plastic material. Altogether it weighs just 4.25 ounces and the display is designed with Corning’s Gorilla Glass. The 16-million collar display offers an average of 320x480 pixel resolution which works well for everyday usage.
Most of the features offered by the LG Optimus Elite are standard for mobile devices. The only exceptional feature provided is Google Wallet. This software application enables users to purchase products securely at stores and restaurants. Users can also link phone numbers to videos or photos for easier recognition. This phone is outfitted with USB mass storage, Wi-Fi, syncing and Bluetooth for greater connectivity. It supports voice search, voice dialing, a Web browser and email POP3 services.
One of the best features of the phone is the 5-megapixel camera. This exceptional camera option comes with four color effects, a brightness meter, geotagging, an adjustable white balance, a digital zoom, four shutter sounds and an adjustable ISO. Special modes for night, sports, sunset, portrait and landscape are also offered. When taking a picture, users can just tap to focus the camera and can view the photo for up to five seconds after it is taken. This phone is equipped with camcorder features that boast of 720x480-pixel resolution and several editing options. Most video messages are limited to 30 seconds, but the time can be extended in standard mode. When operating the camcorder, users can select to have the flash operating continuously as a steady light.
Overall, the phone boasts of decent performance. Signal is strong and the sound produced is loud. The only drawback is that some distortion may appear in certain areas. Speakerphone calls work well and have a decent volume level in quieter locations. The 800MHZ processer that powers the phone is ideal for the price range and boasts of a fairly good internal speed.
The LG Optimus Elite is a favorite of photography aficionados on a budget because of its photo quality.
