Unsurprisingly, the video recorder app on the LG Optimus L5 2 is just an extension of the camera app.

This means that the same basic features are out in effect; adjusting exposure and white balance, adding colour effects and geotagging.

LG Optimus L5 2 review

It is clear, should you have thought otherwise, that the L5 2 was not designed for filming home movies, rather just short films that you can easily share with friends.

We don't see that being a problem, we can imagine the L5 2 being bandied around teens on limited data allowances, rather than movie makers.

We mention this because video recording is limited to VGA (640x480) resolution, and you can turn off audio recording, thereby saving even more data.

In viewing mode it is also possible to share videos directly with varying social media; WhatsApp, Facebook or YouTube.
