LG Optimus Hub embeds good connectivity options and doodads in its slim and sleek chassis. The single SIM phone has an Andriod base and an 800 MHZ processor. The extensive screen of the phone is slotted right in the middle, while all the buttons are placed alongside the chassis, so that they can be accessed easily. You can listen to music and click snapshots with the phone. Business users will appreciate the file sharing mechanism, loads of connectivity options and also the software applications provided. It falls in the mid price range and has an easygoing look, which will make it popular across diverse demographics.
The Li-Ion 1500mAh battery keeps the phone running through 12 hours of talk time and for 581 hours on standby. Other tech specs are 512 MB of RAM, Gingerbread 2.3.4 operating system and 800 MHz ARM v6 processor. The Andriod powered phone doesn’t always run smooth and quick. The media applications and HD videos are just about average. An upside with the handset is its ability to handle multi tasking efficiently.
The phone has a wide array of reliable connectivity features. Many social networking sites like Myspace, Twitter and Facebook are deployed on it. Internet access is made available through 3G and Wi-Fi. In fact, networking features also help in synchronization with the PC. Files can be shared easily via the USB port and Bluetooth. Business users will also like applications like document viewer, editor and photo viewer. The internal memory of the mobile is 150 MB, which can be extended to 32GB with a microSDHC or microSD card. Business users, who are always on the move, will like its audio and video functions. Watch videos on the go with YouTube and listen to lyrical tunes on the music player or FM radio.
This is a simplistic and neat design with edges slightly curved and a sizable scratch resistant screen that measures 3.5 inches. The glossy black frontage has a grey band running across the border. Despite a frame made primarily of plastic, the phone looks quite suave. Just below the screen are the three basic buttons while above it is a proximity sensor. Back of the handset holds the 5 megapixel shooter and an LED flash. Under the back cover of the phone is the slot for the memory card. The lock button and 3.5mm headphone jack are positioned on the top, while the charging point is at the bottom. The volume buttons are placed along the sides.
The glossy black and slim phone is definitely quite good looking and light. It has handy features for business users and students undertaking professional courses. However, the functioning of the phone is strictly okay and its memory is quite low, which is not a good barging at the price the handset is tagged. Many smartphones in the same price range have better functioning and applications, so it is better to scout the market for other handsets before you make the purchase.
