Another new addition to the Optimus Family in the Philippines comes with LG Optimus L5 E612. This new device is equipped with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and aside from that, uh – a mere 800MHz processor? Yeah, this baby doesn’t seem to have those killer features but let me tell you that is not always based on specs – at least for me.
The LG Optimus L5 will be selling for Php10,990 and is going head to head with another new ICS android phone – the Lenovo P700 which has a better screen of IPS LCD, a faster processor of 1GHz, a 512MB of RAM, and a huge battery capacity of 2500mAh. However, the Lenovo P700 only have a 755MB of internal memory which is way smaller when compared to LG Optimus L5’s 4GB of storage. Let us take a look in the complete specifications:
LG Optimus L5 Specifications
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
4.0-inch HVGA Capacitive touchscreen at 320×480 pixels, 16M colors
Cortex A-5 800MHz processor
Adreno 200 GPU
4GB internal memory (2.5GB user available)
5MP Auto Focus + LED Flash at 2560 x 1920 pixels

1500mAh Li-Ion battery
The specifications of the unit really seem to be a bit low for its price especially with its closest competitors – Lenovo P700 and Cherry Mobile W900 are carrying a 1GHz chip with them. This phone really seem to look good but LG may have considered to lower the price a little bit since it doesn’t have much to offer. HTC Desire V, a dual-SIM android phone also comes near with Php16,990.
For early takers, LG is giving away FREE Jelly cover if they buy in participating LG Mobile Official dealers. Promo period is from July 6, 2012 (10:00AM) to July 31, 2012 (Store closing). LG Optimus L5 price in the Philippines is Php10,990 and is now available in official retailers nationwide.
