Looking for the latest LG Phone? You are in luck as the Optimus F5 smartphone is heading to stores

F5 should replace L9 by price but the real replacement is going to be F7. BTW F5 is powered by Qualcomm MSM8960 “Lite”. This is crazy. light, non-light, pro. Qualcomm’s SOC lineup is becoming a real pain to tell apart. They are binning every functioning chip they can manufacture. This to us demonstrates the demand consumers have for their processors.


The Optimus F5 is a 4G LTE smartphone and has a 4.3-inch IPS display. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. The smartphone comes packed with a 2,150mAh battery. It runs with Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 OS.

Releasing initially in France, LG will roll out the Optimus F5 in South and Central America, Asia and the Common-wealth of Independent States (CIS) within the next a few weeks.
The Optimus F5 features LG’s advanced LTE technology that has been enhanced user experience (UX) features at a very competitive price.
The Optimus F Series is a new family of Android smartphones for consumers that are prepared to experience the blazing speeds of 4G LTE.

Just a quick side note to the story, I believe this Optimus F5 provides a challenging competition to the Xperia L

Disadvantages: No flash within the camera

Pricing will definitely be lower than Xperia , F7 will probably become a successor to L9. Apart from that the Optimus F5 includes a better battery and screen than the L.
