Good and Bad side of LG Optimus Net Dual Android Phone
Dual SIM is the biggest advantage of this phone. There are not a lot of dual sim Android phones available in the market and that too from a reliable manufacturer like LG. Now a days you might see a lot of people carry more than one phones, especially in India. This phone takes away the burden of carring two phones at a time. In the given price range, 800MHz processor is the maximum you would expect to have. This would be sufficient to give a smooth Android 2.3 experience with high graphics games too. Browsing internet is swift on 3G and wifi. Memory can be expanded till 32GB, which will be more than enough for a daily user.
The battery seems to be a bit on the down side and thus the talk time that you get is not up to the mark. There are many other devices that would offer a better deal than this one. For people with expectations of a larger screen, this would be a disappointment as it comes with the compact touch screen. Very less internal memory causes the apps to run out of RAM and at times causes the apps to crash or freeze. This is a Smartphone but with a low memory and this surely is a drawback. In a Smartphone one would expect something more than 150MB of internal memory. If you wish to store pictures, apps or videos then you will have to use the external memory card or else such stuff would be quite impossible to hold.
Most of the industry experts give this Smartphone a rating of around 2.5 out of 5. You can buy this phone, if you have nominal budget criteria. But still, while doing so, you have to keep the above pros and cons in mind along with the features and specifications.
