After unveiling their latest flagship phone, the LG G2, now comes their latest entry-level phone yet, the LG Optimus L1 II, which is aimed at users who are at a strict budget. This 3-incher phone packs a 1GHZ processor and is running on Android Jellybean. More specs coming after the jump.

LG Optimus L1 II specs overview

All I can say is the L1 II is quite a small yet very affordable phone. With a 3-inch display, it won't be a good choice for people with large hands and fingers. But on a lighter side, the hardware is good enough for an entry-level phone of that price: the 1GHz single-core processsor, 512MB RAM, 1GB ROM which you can expand up to 32GB with a microSD card, Android Jellybean OS, and of course the battery capacity which you could expect to last up to 2 days.

Seems to me they're competing with Nokia's Asha phones. Which one would you choose? Tell us through the comment section below. :)
