LG Prada 3.0 is a very solid Android phone launched in 2011, packed with a 4.3-inches touch-screen, a Dual-Core CPU running at 1 GHz, and two cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 1.3 mega-pixels front-facing camera. But let's get into a bit more detail.

LG didn't seem to put much effort to reduce weight in this 4.87 oz cellphone. This phone has an inspired design, with a thickness of just 0.33".

LG equipped the LG Prada 3.0 with a TI OMAP4430 system chip, backed up by a good performance 1 gigahertz Dual-Core processor with 1 GB of RAM. Graphic rendering often eats lots of CPU cycles, so this device has an extra 304 MHz PowerVR SGX540 GPU to help the processor with those tasks. A nice point of the LG Prada 3.0 is its big 8 GB internal storage and an SD card slot, allowing the user to store a couple hundred games and applications without running out of space.

This phone has a good level 4.3-inches screen with a 800 x 480 resolution, which makes everything look vivid. This screen uses TFT capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

This phone has two cameras, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 1.3 megapixels front-facing camera. this cellphone's back-facing camera has a 2.8 aperture so it struggles to take sharp pictures in dark environments. This cellphone can also film videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 30 fps. In addition, the camera has flash and auto-focus.

The LG Prada 3.0 has a mid capacity 1540 mAh Li-Ion removable battery that can keep this cellphone running for several hours, but you may need to charge it if you use it too much. LG claims this device has a 4.3 hs talk time and a 330 hs stand by time.

This cellphone provides wifi capability (but it can't share it with other devices acting as a modem or router), 4G HSPA+ connection type, which is not so fast as LTE or LTE-A 4G networks and fast 3G connectivity, over HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a SIM card for GSM networks.

This phone also features a wide variety of interesting features such as NFC, Bluetooth, GPS Localization and FM Radio, and a few sensors likeLight Sensor, Proximity Sensor and Accelerometer.

This cellphone is priced around $ 199, a high price for comparing with other similar phones. This phone is definitely very appropiate no matter if you will use it as a gaming phone, will use it as a social phone, love photography or are looking for a work phone.
