LG OPTIMUS F5
The first in LG’s “F” series smartphones, the Optimus F5 strikes a middle ground between the affordable “L” and the top-end “G” series. It is no surprise that LG did not use premium glass panel for the back of the Optimus F5 (such as on the Optimus G), instead going with a removable plastic back that sports reflective patterns.
The finishing of the Optimus F5 is decent, although the plastic back has notable flex. It is neither particularly thin (9.3mm) nor lightweight at 131.1g, but feels nice in the hands.
Dominating the front of the Optimus F5 is a 4.3-inch IPS display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. The bezels around the display are rather thin, making it possible to fit in a similarly-sized display in a slightly smaller body.
The Optimus F5 runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and LG’s Optimus 3.0 user interface (UI). The Optimus 3.0 UI offers features such as zooming in recorded videos, and the ability to run two apps simultaneously on the same screen via QSlide.
Hardware- wise, the Optimus F5 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dualcore 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage. There is a micro-SD slot to bump up the overall capacity to 40GB (with a 32GB microSD card). It also comes with a removable 2,150mAh battery.
