Phone Scoop

An entry-level Android smartphone that hits way above its weight

from Phone Scoop

At just $60, it's hard to beat the LG Optimus F60. This phone easily competes with others twice its cost.

The phone's design may be minimalistic, but the hardware is made from good materials and is assembled tightly. I was impressed with the quality of the low-resolution screen, and signal and call performance were both quite good. Battery life runs about average...

At just $60, it's hard to beat the LG Optimus F60. This phone easily competes with others twice its cost.

The phone's design may be minimalistic, but the hardware is made from good materials and is assembled tightly. I was impressed with the quality of the low-resolution screen, and signal and call performance were both quite good. Battery life runs about average.

Android 4.4 KitKat and LG's user interface work well together. LG's UI isn't as heavy-handed as others and adds useful tools, such as QSlide apps and KnockOn/KnockCode. The low-end hardware means the F60 won't be a media powerhouse of any sort, but the camera's decent performance was a surprise.

Bargain hunters won't likely find a much better deal than the LG F60. It's a compact handset that exceeds expectations across the board.
