‘LG Optimus Hub’ Features, Specifications, and Review

The LG Optimus Hub, running Android 2.3.4, has a ton of great extras. The standard fare of a modern smartphone is present: an 800 MHz processor, Adreno 200 graphics, 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, a market, etc. The user interface and touch functionality are both well-designed and easy to use. The accelerometer works wonderfully, and game play is smooth.

The rest of the features also function perfectly. The Samsung Galaxy Ace (which ships with Android 2.2 and requires an update), the HTC Wildfire S, the Motorola Fire Xt, and the SonynEricsson Xperia Mini ST15i are all competing models in the same price bracket. Advantages n1 – nn over alternative models. The Gorilla Glass! I’m not aware of any other model selling at this price that offers it.

About LG Optimus Hub

On October 22, 2011, LG unveiled their newest smartphone, the LG Optimus Hub, in India (Official). This mobile phone may be purchased for as little as Rs 4,699 (depending on the color of course). LG’s mobile phone features a 3.5-inch (8.89 cm) display at 320 x 480 pixels.

With the 800 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 MSM7227T CPU within the LG Optimus Hub, running many apps simultaneously is a breeze. The phone’s 512 MB of RAM and 512 MB of internal storage provide you plenty of room to keep your music, films, games, and other media.

Additionally, the LG Optimus Hub is powered by Android v2.3 (Gingerbread) and features a respectable 1500 mAh battery, allowing you to utilize it for a longer period of time while still enjoying media content such as movies, music, and games.

The phone’s impressive photographic features are a major selling point. On the back of the LG Optimus Hub is a single 5 megapixel camera. Digital Zoom, Face Detection, and Smile Detection are just a few of the features of the back-facing camera system.

LG Optimus Hub

The Optimus Hub has a sleek black exterior with a silver stripe down each side. Even though a lot of plastics went into making this candybar phone, it still manages to look and feel very good. The Optimus Hub boasts a good 3.5-inch screen that is resistant to scratches, and it can display images at a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels.

It also has three capacitive buttons on its underside. A proximity sensor has been installed above the display, however an ambient light sensor has been left out. Bezels around the screen are noticeable, although thankfully they aren’t as thick as those on the Sol.

LG Optimus Hub Interface

LG’s Optimus 2.0 user interface is installed atop Gingerbread 2.3.4 on the Optimus Hub’s 800 MHz ARM v6 processor. There is 512 MB of random access memory (RAM) and 150 MB of storage space for data. We don’t know what it has in store for ICS, but given LG’s track record with software updates, we wouldn’t put our hopes in the Hub.

Visually, Optimus 2.0 hasn’t altered much, but it appears to be both faster and more fluid. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same for the Optimus Hub, and our issues with the Optimus Net UI persisted there as well. While multitasking has been largely taken care of, there is occasionally a period of time where your phone will suddenly slow down and you’ll have to wait for it to catch up. There’s nothing new on the market, as we’ve seen this on other Androids.

LG Optimus Hub Media

The interface is unremarkable and does not deviate significantly from the standard Android experience. What you hear is what you get, as there are no equalizer settings added. The in-ear headphones included with the E510 have a decent sound quality.

But, the Walkman experience was superior. The only supported audio formats are MP3, WAV, AAC, and WMA, although there are many third-party programs available to help you overcome this limitation.

While not as brilliant as the ultra AMOLED on the Sol, the screen is still bright enough to watch videos in comfort. However, if you need the ability to playback formats other than MP4 and H.264, you’ll need to search the Android market for a different app.

The default player had trouble with high-definition videos, and third-party apps stuttered badly when playing them. The Hub’s media section just doesn’t cut it.

LG Optimus Hub Connectivity

The Optimus Hub is a quad-band GSM device that supports 3.6 HSDPA 3G, along with Wi-Fi (including DLNA and Wi-Fi Direct) and Bluetooth 3.0. In addition to the usual Android web-kit browser, A-GPS, Google Maps, and GPS all add to your connectivity options.

The E510 has crystal-clear voice quality during incoming calls. In addition, the speaker is rather audible. Unfortunately, you can’t watch Flash videos with the default browser. Compared to other phones we’ve used recently, this one has a more robust Wi-Fi signal receiver.

In some areas, the phone had no trouble connecting to our signal, while other devices had a much more difficult time doing so.

Also, it’s a nice change of pace from the Wi-Fi issues that have plagued our current review unit of the Sony Tablet P. Data connectivity issues were something we encountered frequently. Without restarting, the phone would not be able to transition from Wi-Fi to mobile data.
