pros: dual sim
uses regular size sim
gorilla glass protection
8gb internal plus micro sd card slot
quad core snapdragon processor
8mp rear camera
(outdoor shooting is awesome)
android 4.4.2 kitkat
(as it contains kitkat out of the box its already optimized and is very snappy)
gaming is pretty smooth runs high end games too
(faced no problems in asphalt 8 mc4 gta nfs-mw dead trigger 2 etc)
ir blaster for acting as a tv remote
shooting in artificial light from the rear camera could have been better
(but is decent i would say)
front vga camera
(does the job)
no light sensor that means no automatic brightness,have to adjust brightness manually
(most ppl end up switching off that feature any way)
screen is neither 720p nor 1080p
(xcellent viewing angles though and screen is vivid)
( bt xperia c has 220, lumia 1320 has 245 and samsung galaxy grand neo has 186 so i would say its manageable given the competition)
back panel doesn't feel very premium
(but most ppl will use a cover so no issues there)
ui is bland
(but is very snappy and there are custom launchers available in play store anyway)
no usb otg support
(no xcuses for this bummed me out too)
So as it is clear its a pretty decent phone.
Sure LG has cut some corners but has included cool features like ir blaster, knock code (innovative way to unlock screen,regular ways are also present off course) and a pretty fluid interface to more than make up for it.
Alternatives (for screen size of 5 inches and above and in the same price bracket)
Huawei Ascend G700 (better screen, 2gigs ram but inferior camera)
Nokia Lumia 1320 (6inch screen with a higher ppi and 720p screen with windows 8.1 expected to iron out the kinks but has 5mp camera and the app gap is something to keep in mind,but you can go for it after checking the availability of your favorite apps and if you are not overly dependent on google apps).
I hope this review was helpful.
Feel free to ask anything about the LG L90 Dual or clarify any doubts that you may have.
I was a big fan of samsung fones. I used samsung grnd for more than a year. After recent update of 4.2.2, fone started lagging n geting hang every minute. I was literally frustrated, so went for repairing. There were many fones around. I was about to replace ths fone with samsung s4 mini, for a moment My eyes stucked on something very stud n tuff fone. salesman was busy showing demo about this brand new LG L90.
Oh God! what a fone man. what a clarity of camera. guys believe me this fone may break all records of any other fone within these range.
1) Camera is crystal clear
it can beat samsung's any 8mp fone.
2) Very quick and fast access to any application
3) Knock code is the best
just knock on fone and it wil lock n open for you
4) Stud and very impressive hardware
5) UI design is the best with kitkat OS experience
6) Battery is baap of everyone.
Truly guys, this is best fone i hav ever seen so far. let me tell you, This is my 14th fone.... And I want to continue with it for very long term.
Guys if your buget is below 20k, this fone is exceptional for u.
Some comparisons with moto G.
1. Screen : Lg L90 have bigger screen (4.7") as compare to moto G but with less resolution(qHD vs HD).So screen is better in moto G as compare to LG but a bit smaller.
2. Processor : Both have same processor.
3. Memory : Moto G comes with 8 GB and 16 GB internal memory with no support of external memory card whereas L90 have 8 GB internal memory expandable up to 32 GB.
4. Camera on l90 is better (8 mp) as compare to moto G(5mp)
5.Moto G comes with water repellent coating whereas l90 does not have that.
6.LG has included an IR (infra-red) blaster on the handset. This means you'll be able to control home entertainment products such as TVs, DVD players and set top boxes with the LG L90.This functionality is usually reserved for higher tier smartphones.
7. Battery of LG L 90 (2500mh) is bigger than that of moto G (2000mh).
Hence with 3k more you get bigger battery, bigger screen, better camera, IR blaster, expandable memory knock code feature but compromise on screen resolution and water proof coating.
Choice is yours as both have good value for money and both are way ahead as compare to other brands in this price range.
So after using it for one week..,,
Camera is average works fine for normal use.
Battery life is decent, enough power for whole day on heavy use.
IR blaster is always a welcome feature in this price range.
LG skin is very nice with lots of useful features and very simple to use.
The best part is no heating problem , doesn't matter how hard you use it.
So overall very light and compact. Fully satisfied after using it for a week.
The only thing i miss is a notification light and backlight in capacitive buttons.
