LG has proven to the world that Android doesn't necessarily mean high-end smartphone, with the launch of the LG Optimus 2.
This budget-friendly phone looks to keep things simple, with less of a focus on power and all-round sleekness and more of a push on plain-old functionality.
What you do get in terms of specs is a 3.2-inch capacitive screen, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread to those who only think about food) and a 3.2MP camera that can also shoot video.
Oh, and a 1,500 mAh battery which has 5 hours' talk time worth of juice.
Other features include Swype for those who just can't stop caressing their handset's screen, Bluetooth and GPS.
If you do decide on the LG Optimus 2 then you better consider getting yourself a microSD card as the internal memory on the handset is a mere 179MB. You do ger a 2GB card included, though, but if you are using the Optimus 2 extensively for media then you may want to upgrade.
An LG Optimus 2 UK release date has yet to be announced but as it is currently enjoying availability in the US, expect it to arrive soon with wallet-friendly pricing to boot.
