Hands-on with the LG Optimus F5

We go hands-on with the LG Optimus F5, a budget smartphone with 4G connectivity.

We've just got our hands on the LG Optimus F5. It's a budget smartphone with 4G connectivity and one of the first 4G devices to be sold on prepaid. It's actually the first 4G prepaid smartphone sold in Australia by Optus. Let's take a look!

The LG Optimus F5 Australian retail box. There's no carrier branding on this one, aside from "Opt" printed on the side label denoting this is an Optus handset. It's unlocked though, so it will work on any Australian network including Telstra and Vodafone. Do note though that the phone does not support the 850MHz network band, which is used by both Telstra (Next G) and Vodafone.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
