Straight Talk / Net10 LG LG Optimus Logic GSM Android

Today, we are taking a look at the very interesting LG Optimus Logic. What's so interesting you ask? Well, for one, it's gotta be one of the squarest phones we've seen this side of a tablet. Second, it's got an interesting button setup, namely because it's missing 2 of the 4 Android buttons we've come to expect.

Phone Look and Feel

The Logic is a cool little GSM Android that's of the entry level to mid level type devices. It feels, well, very square, sort of like a mini tablet. I'm thinking that's what LG was going for in terms of look feel. In fact, when I fist saw the image of this, I indeed thought it was some sort of tablet. Looking at the recent LG lineup, I found that they now have several phones in this very square style so perhaps this is something new they are experimenting with

Now you might be thinking that because of the squareness, this is a large phone with a very large screen. Well, that is not the case because this phone is actually quite compact. So compact in fact, it is one of the smaller Androids offered by Straight Talk. Layout wise, it's pretty standard other than the two missing middle Android buttons. Yes, that's right, this phone is missing the Search and Menu buttons found on 99% of Androids. In their place is a space bar type bump but were not quite sure of the purpose or reason they did this other than to perhaps to save money and keep the phone costs down.


Feature wise, the phone is quite standard. It's got all the Android goods we want and like. Just because it's of the entry level variety doesn't mean you get any less! That being said, keep in mind that the processor is on the slower side, at least by today's standards. Poorly written apps like the Android Netflix app will be choppy and the audio will be out of sync on this particular phone. Other than that, everything else works great.

In case you're wondering, yes, you do get Google Play access with this phone. You will need to create a Google account to use it however. One question many people always have on a prepaid Android is whether the phone is somehow missing things that the contract phone has. The answer to that is no. This little LG does pretty much everything a contract phone does including download app, music, games, stream vids, youtube and just about anything else you can think of. Yes, GPS is enabled as well in case you're wondering.

Overall, a very feature rich little entry level phone. This one is just as good as any other entry level device offerend by Straight Talk. Conclusion

The LG Logic is a very cool little phone. I really like how it's just different from most other Androids out there. This is perhaps what drew me to it. I like the squareness of it and I also like the fact that it's compact and not one of these behemoths that won't fit in your pocket. Features were all there as expected. The button layout was a little quirky but by no means restrictive. The missing menu button is still represented on the OS screen and the search button, well, does anybody actually use that one?.
