LG Optimus F5 is a quite good device released in 2013, counting with a powerful 1.2 gigahertz Dual-Core CPU, a medium 4.3-inches touch-screen, a 5 MP back camera and a 1.3 megapixels front facing camera.

This phone doesn't feel very lightweight for a phone of this size, with a weight of 4.62 ounces. This phone is a compact cellphone, taking into consideration it packs a 4.3" display and it's just 4.96 inches long. This phone is just 0.37" thick, taking it to the thinnest cellphone's category.

This device is equipped with a good performance 1.2 GHz Dual-Core CPU, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 chip and 1 GB RAM. Graphic intensive apps generally eats lots of CPU processing time, so the LG Optimus F5 also also has an Adreno 225 GPU clocking at 400 megahertz to improve overall performance. A good point of the LG Optimus F5 is its quite big 8 GB internal storage and a slot for an SD memory card, which allows you to install a couple hundred applications and games without running out of space.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.3 MP front side camera. It is also able to shoot 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 fps.

LG equipped this phone with a nice 4.3" display, and a 960 x 540 resolution, providing this phone with a nice graphical experience. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This phone features a 2150 mAh incredible Li-Ion replaceable battery that can keep it running for several hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it. According to LG, this phone has an estimated stand by time of 500 hs and a talk time of 12 hours.

The LG Optimus F5 includes wi-fi connection (which it can provide to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high speed internet connection and also HSPA+ internet connection, a bit slower 4G variation or 3G fast connectivity, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This phone works with a SIM card for GSM services.

The LG Optimus F5 also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS (Global Positioning System) and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

The LG Optimus F5 is a quite a good offer considering it only costs $ 155, while other similar devices cost a few extra dollars. No matter whether you want a gamer cellphone, need this cellphone for work or are looking for a social cellphone, you will definitely be very satisfied with it.
