G’s Optimus L series is targeted at the budget smartphone market. To make sure there will be a successful line of devices LG is beginning to supplement the models with their second generation pairs.

The second generation L5 is loaded with Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2

 Logically after Optimus L3 II and L7 II, the Korean company introduced LG Optimus L5 II.

Its modest price perfectly explains the modest performance levels and build quality. And still if you need your phone mainly for conversations and moderate browsing this one will do great.

Despite the plastic material LG have used for the case, it is still a beautifully designed handset, not of the type that momentarily give away its low price. The discrete metallic bezel that runs on the periphery additionally highlights its elegant curves. The brushed metal texture on the back looks good but hardly will anyone fall for that. 

It is powered by a single core CPU at 1GHz work frequency

The Optimus L5 II comes with a 4 inch diagonal at 800×480 pixel resolution that has grown in comparison to the 320x480pixels in its predecessor the L5. The IPS display panel performs pretty well actually but since it is not Gorilla Glass protected, the screen should be all means be kept with a protector.

The second generation L5 is loaded with Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2. It is powered by a single core CPU at 1GHz work frequency and performs on 512MB of system memory. The visual performance is delivered by a PowerVR SGX531 GPU.

This model will be present on the market also with a configuration which supports DualSIM

 The base 5MP camera is rear facing, placed to the right along with its LED flash. Side placing the camera is probably not the best option as it is often accidentally covered during shooting and no one wants fingers on their shots. But let’s go back to the pictures. The output image quality is pretty decent at 2560x1920px of course boosting high noise levels when the light is insufficient. The details and colors could have been richer but if you are not particularly looking for a good camera phone this one will serve you well. Unfortunately a front video call camera is unavailable.

Internal storage on the Optimus L5 II is quite tight. There are 4GB of built-in memory, only 2 of which are user-available. The good news is that you can provide your device with more memory through an microSD card which supports up to 32GB.

 The periphery controls on this device include a microUSB port, a 3.5mm jack, a volume rocker and one additional button that users can customize.

This model will be present on the market also with a configuration which supports DualSIM.

The Li-Ion battery here has 1700mAh capacity and provides power for about 550h on 3G.
