Thousands of apps, the latest 2.2 Android software and a gorgeous 3.2-inch touchscreen combine to devastating effect in the LG Optimus One. You'll have to go a long, long way to find a better smartphone.
Android phones really do excel at apps. And the Optimus One is no exception. Head to the Android Market online software store with this stellar mobile and you'll be able to choose from a host of great titles taking in everything from fun games to more practical business apps.
But before you starting filling your phone with new apps, take a look at what the Optimus One has got onboard already. The 3.2-inch touchscreen is fantastically colourful and excels when used for watching media while you're on the go. And with seven customisable homescreens there's ample scope for customisation and plenty of room for widgets, apps and shortcuts.
Also onboard is a three megapixel camera, which is perfect for taking fun snaps. And it's capable of video recording, too, for capturing life's spontaneous moments on film and indulging your inner Kubrick. With microSD card support up to 32GB, you'll be able to store as many of your media mementos as you like.
Other features of the Optimus One include pre-installed Twitter and Facebook applications, the option to use your phone as a mobile broadband dongle via the handset's tethering function and a powerful processor which combines with Android 2.2 for slick, speedy multi-tasking.
There's also a full range of connectivity options, including 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, plus GPS support and Google Maps for sat nav functionality and turn by turn directions.
Having read about the Optimus One's sweet feature set we've detailed above, you should now be fully aware of just how good this compact phone is. However, we've yet to touch on one of the key factors that make it even better: Android updates.
As with all Android phones, if you buy the LG Optimus One you can look forward to regular software upgrades absolutely free of charge. Each time one of these arrives your phone will get a host of great new features and they'll often optimise its performance too, making your handset faster and easier to use than ever.
