LG Optimus One

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

The LG Optimus One is yet another solid mid range phone by LG. It sports a 3.2 ich capacitive touchscreen and Android 2.2. It's extremely affordable for the type of performance it dishes out. Even without the best of specs, it can go toe-to-toe with any mid-range handset and even some so-called high-end handsets.

It was the initial phone in the "One" series that took the globe by storm, making appearances in one form or another on many major carriers. The specs are modest with its 600MHz processor, Adreno 200 GPU and 512MB of RAM. It's quickly gained a reputation, is very popular with the rooting crowd, and has probably been the best thing that could happen to LG's smartphone efforts as its affordability helped them break into a new market.
