LG L90 Dual Android Phone Hands-on, Initial Impressions



LG L90 Front

The LG L90 can be easily called the big daddy of the L Series smartphones from LG. Why? for the reason that it adds both – a good screen size with a neat OS experience. The L90 Dual is a Dual-SIM smartphone that runs the Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS, and it has a 4.7-inch qHD display.

The L90 Dual is very comfortable to hold, use and LG has made no mistake in the placement of the buttons, except for the touch button in the bottom, the back key which is on the extreme left while most of the users would prefer that to be on the right). The display is not the sharpest, but at the same time, it isn’t that bad because you get a decent output. But, the brightness is not real high under natural bright conditions.

The flagships from LG have the system buttons in the bottom of the display itself, but the entire L series has the capacitive touch buttons below the display and there are four of them here – Back, Home, Menu and SIM Switch key, which would take you to the Dual SIM settings section. The textured rear panel gives an extra grip, and although plastic, the device doesn’t look or feel fragile in any way. On the right of the device, the Power/Lock key takes its place, while the volume rocker switch is on the left side. There is also an IR blaster included in the L90 Dual, alongside the secondary mic on the top, where the 3.5mm headset jack is also placed. The MicroUSB slot and the primary mic are at the bottom. The speaker is placed on the back area, and the back cover is removable.

The Android KitKat is layered with the custom UI from LG, which doesn’t throw out a lot of graphics, and the simple and neat look is what gives a better experience, when there is no heavy internal hardware to support it. The latest features which LG is boasting about, is all seen in the L90 Dual. Especially, the Knock Code security feature where you have to enter the pattern of taps to unlock the screen. That was introduced when LG announced the LG G Pro 2, and since then, the feature was included in all the smartphones launched this year. It doesn’t work in the best way as the accuracy gets a hit in the L90.

The actual interface, i.e. LG Optimus 3.0 UI was pretty smooth and responsive, and the options were very well laid out, and the quick settings, QSlide in the Notification Panel would come to good use for those who didn’t want to keep digging into the Settings app for the toggles. The 8-megapixel camera is handy for bright light natural photos, but there is nothing much you can expect in the low light conditions, although there is a flash provided for assistance.

Early Verdict

The LG L90 Dual for the first impressions has been a simple beauty for the neat design, well equipped with the latest OS, the decent internal hardware and a screen size which cannot be called small, or large at the same time.
