v The biggest plus point we found with the LG Optimus L5 2 was the battery life. This is possibly the most subjective of all the points that we could raise, but the lower processor speed seemed to have worked wonders on the battery longevity. We don't really ever see us hitting the two days that LG has quoted, but one day's use is more than viable.
v We also loved the Quick Button. It is only a very minor thing at first, and we don't really see much use for the Quick Memo app other than to doodle on images... ok we see a lot of use for Quick Memo.
v The Quick Button really comes into its own though, when used to quickly launch the camera app, as it then doubles up as a shutter button, something that we really wish was on more smart phones.
v The inclusion of NFC was also a nice bonus as it's a technology that we predict will slowly infiltrate itself to all manner of devices, the most obvious being other phones, and payment points.
v We were also impressed with the UI. Overall it felt very intuitive, and allowed for a certain level of customization such as home screen, or conversation themes. LG has also put some effort into giving stock apps a more attractive and smarter feel. Often it was small touches, but LG has got it right.
