Lacks LTE, but a strong prepaid contender

from Cnet

For $50 off-contract, the LG Optimus L70 makes a few compromises. You'll have to make do without a blazing-fast processor and despite having decent 4G speeds, it does lack LTE. But at that price range, the device does offer a lot -- especially compared with its other 4G prepaid competitors.

For $50 off-contract, the LG Optimus L70 makes a few compromises. You'll have to make do without a blazing-fast processor and despite having decent 4G speeds, it does lack LTE. But at that price range, the device does offer a lot -- especially compared with its other 4G prepaid competitors.

Cricket's $59.99 ZTE Sonata 4G, for instance, may score higher on benchmark tests. But its camera fares even worse off than the L70s, it runs an older version of Android, and it has a smaller screen and thicker profile. There's also MetroPCS' free Nokia Lumia 521, which is a good device for a Windows Phone user on a budget. However, if you're looking for an handset in that price range that can access an app ecosystem as robust as Google's Play store, the Optimus L70 is the phone to get.

Offers enough performance for most tasks under every level of load

from Notebookcheck

The LG L70 is stable, cleanly manufactured, and composed of well-selected materials -- which is not true of every device in this class. Additionally, the smartphone is outfitted with a genuinely bright IPS panel with stable viewing angles and respectable color reproduction. Unfortunately, the fact that the brightness sinks when the system is under high levels of load is twice as bad in conjunction with the reflective display surface. Together, these two factors limit outdoor use. The lack of automatic brightness regulation, however, is easily sufferable...

The LG L70 has a very useful interface and apps. It is better than average in departments like processing power, camera, and battery. On other departments like design, display, storage, and connectivity it is just average.

So in a nutshell, the LG L70 is advisable for the brand lovers who want a bit of security and consistent quality. However, it has nothing great to topple many of the smartphones that currently considered as best in this price range.
