    Overview of smartphone LG Optimus L5 II and LG Optimus L5 II Dual SIM

    LG Optimus L5 II review

    Our readers have already had the opportunity to read the reviews of the three devices L-Style line of the second generation - LG Optimus L7II Dual SIM and LG Optimus L3 II, LG Optimus L3 Dual SIM H. Today we introduce you to two more representatives of L-Style - LG Optimus L5II and its analogue dvuhsimnom - LG Optimus L5 II Dual SIM. The differences between the models is to support the second SIM-card in LG Optimus L5II Dual SIM, the presence of his private keys to change the priority of SIM, and a slightly different design. LG is the first to use in their smartphones MediaTek single-core processor clocked at 1 GHz. In addition, models are equipped with a battery capacity of 1,700 mAh, 512 MB RAM, 4-inch IPS-display and running the operating system Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).

    Design and ergonomics

    Like the rest of the line L-Style, smartphones profess one and the same concept design - rounded corners with Dual SIM-models and sharp with conventional versions. Another trait that united all six of the new generation of smartphones, the back of the design where black versions use a brushed metal plastic, and a honeycomb pattern in white. Both are, with the exception of the front panel does not have the glossy parts. She, by the way, enclosed by glass, and not as in the case of the LG Optimus L3 II and the L3 II Dual SIM, plastic. But no oleophobic coating. Because in addition to more softkey to change the priority of SIM-cards with LG Optimus L5 II Dual SIM, you have a hardware Home button with indicator at events around the LG Optimus L5 II, and a different pattern of the rear panel, there is no difference between the two devices, the following description applies to the elements two devices.

    The operating system and shell

    All new models of LG running the operating system Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) installed on top of the shell with Optimus UI 3.0. Terms of occurrence of Android 4.2 on smartphones LG manufacturer has not yet sounded. Detailed description of the interface Optimus UI 3.0 and the principle of operation of two SIM-cards can be found in the review of LG Optimus L7 II Dual SIM .

    LG Optimus L5 II review

    In the heroes of this review, as in the LG Optimus L3 II and LG Optimus L3 II Dual SIM, no application QSlide, that is, the ability to run some programs on top of other windows. In view of the hardware platform, such a restriction is justified. The interface of smartphones running smoothly, Twitching can occur only when running a Large Number of demanding applications.

    LG Optimus L5 II review

    On the possibilities of personalization, the shell Optimus UI 3.0 is the leader. At the discretion of the user is given the ability to change icons, buttons in the notification bar, change background images in messages, lists, applications, select the shortcut for lock screen, rearrange icons in the camera, and more.

    Hardware Platform

    As we have said, these devices use SoC production MediaTek - MTK6575 - GHz processor Cortex-A9, accelerator PowerVR SGX531, and 512 MB of RAM. The amount of internal storage is 4 GB, of which the user can use 2 GB. Both devices support in GSM and UMTS-networks. The performance of this solution is sufficient for most everyday tasks - reading news from social networks, running less demanding graphics-mobile games, watching video in a typical for the DVD. Count on viewing HD-video is worth only if a memory card, because the amount of internal memory is not enough for a file of similar quality. Test video to MKV format with a resolution of 1024h432 point, AAC audio to start and played without complications. Playing a Video

    Benchmark results smartphone Optimus L5 II say good for both single-core processor, performance, which is not in the least contributed to the accelerator PowerVR SGX531.

    LG Optimus L5 II review

    Problems with the reception quality of smart phones in the network was detected, but the dynamics of conversation LG Optimus L5 II is a small complaint. It boils down to the fact that at maximum volume there is rattling speaker. Perhaps this is a feature of our sample (we had a non-profit sample). In fairness it should be noted that the maximum volume of the sound excessive, and in most cases lack five of the seven divisions. A similar volume of the headphones when listening to

    Music or watching videos, in most cases, using the maximum value becomes uncomfortable, it has to slow down. Multimedia speaker volume average.

    Autonomy devices slightly above average. More information is available from the table below. Despite the fact that both work on the same smart phone hardware platform, and have the same display Batteries, we tested for each model separately.

When listening to music worked automatic data synchronization, Wi-Fi, Data Transfer. The display brightness is set to 50% volume in the headphones 12 of 15 possible levels. All music files in MP3, 320 Kbit / s. Navigation includes a route in Google Navigation app. Brightness exhibited 50%, all data communication modules disabled. When playing active video data transmission in a mobile network, display brightness set to 50%, the volume level on level 12 of a possible 15. A video file format MKV, resolution 1024h432 points, 24 fps (LG Optimus L5 II) and AVI, resolution 720h304, the frequency of 24 f/s (LG Optimus L5 II Dual SIM). Playing videos from Youtube accompanied not only work in the Wi-Fi network but the active data transmission. The display brightness is set to 50% volume in the headphones 12 of 15 possible levels. On the example of GLBenchmark 2.5 benchmark results can be assessed autonomous unit in the game. Unfortunately, due to an update to version 2.7, the older version 2.5.1 no longer store the data of the test. Approximate result LG Optimus L5II is 5 hours.

    Display and Camera

    The smartphone is equipped with 4-inch IPS-matrix with a resolution of 800x480 pixels, the value is 233 PPI. The display is covered with tempered glass. The light sensor is missing, have to adjust the brightness manually. The brightness values range from 38 cd / m 2 to 381 cd / m 2 (50% corresponds to 116 cd / m 2) at the LG Optimus L5 II and from 33.5 cd / m 2 to 356 cd / m 2 (50% corresponds to 103.7 cd / m 2) at the LG Optimus L5 II Dual SIM. It would seem that the difference between the displays should not be, but its presence can be attributed to the early test patterns, which are often different from each other. There are some differences in terms of white balance, gamma curve and color gamut. Despite them, the general pattern is true for both the LG Optimus L5 II, and LG Optimus L5 II Dual SIM. The color gamut is dependent on the brightness level, the higher it is, the performance is closer to the value of sRGB. At maximum brightness, a completely non-critical variations, so that we can say that the displays of smart phones can display a full palette of colors. The average value of the gamma curve is close to 2, but the bright parts of the image slightly clipped, whereas dark vice versa. Worst situation with the white balance. And here and there the image of leaves in cool tones. Showedbetterthemselvesdisplay LG Optimus L5 II.

    LG Optimus L5 II review

    Data for the LG Optimus L5II Dual SIM: gamma curve, color gamut, white balance Despite the small variations in the gamma curve, and white balance, displays, smartphones leave a good impression, the only thing that is puzzling - the lack of a light sensor in the devices cost in the region of 250 conventional units. In the sun, the displays do not go blind, what's not in the least contributes to the relatively high brightness, but its minimum value will not always be comfortable for reading in the dark.

    5 MP camera with a matrix allows you to take pictures with a maximum resolution of 2560x1920 pixels and record video with a resolution of 640x480 pixels. When photographing works autofocus in video using a constant focus. Users have the burst mode, panorama photography of team-selection in ISO, ekpozitsii, white balance, color effects and scene modes, including sport, sunset, landscape, portrait and night. In the video there are similar regimes, but to choose the values of ISO. The quality of images and videos are decent in good light, but significantly reduced in low light. If you do not require the quality of the camera as the Flagship, it is possible to remain satisfied with its results. Example 5 MP photos, shot by LG Optimus L5 II

    The results

    Smartphones LG Optimus L5 II and LG Optimus L5 II Dual SIM models have the characteristic features of this manufacturer in the form of attractive design, high-quality display and build a good autonomy and interface with the power of personalization.

    Competitors in the large number of new products. Today there is difficulty finding smart phones with

    A similar price tag, IPS-display, a camera capable of recording HD-video and similar indicators of

    Autonomy, but equipped with a dual-core processor. It is true the majority of these devices will be on

    The A-brands, to which, apparently, is calculated LG, releasing a decent smart phones at a slightly

    Higher price.
