About LG Optimus One P500

As can be seen from the listed specs, this Android phone could be described as the “lightweight” version of the Android series. However if you’re on a budget, this mobile does all the smartphone basics for a very cheap price.

The LG Optimus One P500 is small, lightweight and sturdy–therefore it’s a delight to hold in the palm of your hand. The soft rubber backing of the device also makes it easy to grip. The LG Optimus One features four external buttons which sit on the phone’s tummy – menu, home, back and search, which many users may find easier to use than the on-screen menu buttons many manufacturers opt for. There’s a power button at the top of the phone, and volume control on the side. In addition, there’s a micro-USB port and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
