LG Prada 3.0 is a not so powerful Android cellphone released some years ago, in 2011, packing a 1 gigahertz Dual-Core CPU, a 4.3" multi-touch screen, and 2 cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.3 megapixels front camera. But it's time to get into a bit more detail.

Apparently LG decided not to care so much about the weight in this 4.87 ounces phone. This phone is very slim, being just 0.33 inches thick.

The LG Prada 3.0 includes a good looking 4.3-inches display with a 800 x 480 resolution, which makes all pictures and videos look colorful and brightful. Its display uses TFT capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

This device is powered by a TI OMAP4430 chip, holding a great performance Dual-Core processing unit clocking at 1000 MHz and 1 GB RAM memory. To collaborate with graphic rendering, the LG Prada 3.0 also counts with a PowerVR SGX540 graphic processing unit clocking at 304 MHz. A nice advantage of this device is the 8 GB quite big internal memory and an external memory card slot, allowing the user to store a couple hundred applications without any trouble.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.3 mega-pixels front camera. this cellphone's back facing camera has a f/2.8 aperture so it has difficulties taking nice photos in low-light situations. It can also shoot 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 fps. In addition, the camera has flash and auto-focus.

The LG Prada 3.0 has a medium sized 1540 mAh Li-Ion replaceable battery that can keep the LG Prada 3.0 running for several hours, although you may need to charge it after some heavy use. According to LG, this device has an aproximate 4.3 hs talk time and a 330 hours stand by time.

The LG Prada 3.0 provides WiFi capability (although it can't be provided to other devices acting as a wireless router), 4G HSPA+ connection type, that is not as fast as LTE-A or LTE 4G networks or 3G fast data connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a SIM card for GSM connection.

The LG Prada 3.0 also features many interesting features like Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth devices, computers, and accessories), FM Radio, GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), and some sensors likeLight Sensor, Proximity Sensor and Accelerometer.

The LG Prada 3.0 is a mid-end cellphone priced about 199 dollars, which is quite the same as other same level cellphones. If you want a cellphone to majorly use social networks and internet browsing, this cellphone is the right choice for you.
