    Green, eco-friendly, and price conscious, the LG Optimus is certainly a budget phone - But is it for you?When I found out I`d get to do the LG Optimus Elite review, I was happy, to ......

    Verdict: If the Optimus Elite can get the same kind of developer love the Optimus S got, well, that`ll certainly extend the life of this phone, but with the internals it`s packing, there`s no amount of recycled bottle caps that`ll make purchasing this phone.....

    Back when we reviewed the LG Optimus S a year and a half ago we came away amazed that such a low-end device could perform so well. Now LG is back with the Optimus Elite for Sprint. The follow-up improves on the original by adding a bigger display,......

    Pros: Solid build, thin design ; Good battery life ; Nice performance for the price

    Cons: Poor screen resolution ; So-so camera results

    Verdict: The Optimus One line of phones set the bar for entry-level Android devices, and the Optimus Elite is a worthy successor to the Optimus S. It improves on the winning formula in just about every category, and while it may have shortcomings it is still....

    Stop me if you\'ve heard this one, but I\'m going to tell you about my experiences using an LG Optimus phone. All right, I know that\'s a bit snarky, but it\'s difficult not to make a joke when you\'ve seen so many members of the Optimus family (more than a dozen when you factor in the various carrier versions). The new LG Optimus Elite has more in common with its Optimus S granddaddy than it does with the high-end LG Optimus 3D Max that LG unvei...

    Verdict: The LG Optimus Elite packs a couple of interesting extras, but at its core it's no more than an average Android phone with a less than elite design....

    The LG Optimus Elite is friendly to the earth and your wallet, at the expense of power and performance....

    Pros: Eco-friendly. Very little bloatware

    Cons: Low-end specs. Average camera

    Verdict: This is the same phone as the LG Optimus Elite ($149.99, 3.5 stars) we reviewed over on Virgin Mobile. It loses half a star here because it doesn`t stand out as much among the low-cost smartphones in Sprint`s lineup....

    UpdatedLG Optimus Elite Video Review Part 11Android The LG Optimus Elite joins Sprint`s line-up as an eco-friendly, low-cost, smartphone. At only $30 on contract, it`s hard to ignore a phone like this. It even has some rare features like NFC and Google......
