LG Optimus Zone 3
LG OPTIMUS ZONE 3 was announced in December 2015 and was already released in market in January 15, 2016. This entry level smartphone offers middle class specs and features that are not so far from recent demand on smartphone. They are not so satisfying but enough to support recent virtual activities.

Design, Display, and Camera

This smartphone uses Android Lollipop 5.1 in a 5.19 x 2.62 x 0.35 inches dimension phone. The display is 4,5 inches wide with 480x854 pixels resolution in 281 ppi density. The TFT display is completed with multi touch tech and light and proximity sensor. The rear camera is 5 MP with LED lights featuring tech like smile detection, self timer, geo tagging, voice activation, autofocus, and burst mode. The camcorder can produce 720 p HD video and excellent video calling and the front camera is 2 MP, perfect for making selfie. There is nothing outstanding from these details.

Hardware, Battery, and Connectivity

LG OPTIMUS ZONE 3 is empowered by quad core ARM Cortex-A7 processor with 1,536 MB RAM and Adreno 304 graphic processor. The built in storage is 8 GB with up to 32 GB possible expansion. The battery supports up to 11 hours of talking time, and 235 hours of standby time. The connectivity is pretty standard on today’s demand including Bluetooth, WiFi connection, micro USB port for mass storage device and charging, tethering option, and PC and OTA sync. Those details are pretty updated but nothing is special. It should give you enough supports on several activities.

Multimedia, Technology, Internet Supports

The multimedia features are pretty common. This smartphone is completed with music player, speakers options like ear set and loud speaker, and YouTube video player. This smartphone connects to 800 and 1900 MHz CDMA network with several FDD LTE supports and it is enriched with GPS and A-GPS positioning, making it possible for turn by turn and voice navigation. As you must already guess, the internet browsing is pretty standar, upload support for YouTube, and Picassa and Google+. You may  need to download a bunch of apps to complete your need from this phone.

Those specs and features are not so high end but you shouldn’t expect more on a $69.99 phone. Several customers have the suspicion that customers will have complains about this new smartphone, as happens to all LG entry level phone. Let’s hope everything is better in LG OPTIMUS ZONE 3.
