LG Optimus L3 Dual E405 is now available on flipkart for Rs. 8,299. This is a dual SIM phone (GSM+GSM) that runs on Android 2.3 OS. This is different from the LG Optimus L3 E400 that come with a single SIM slot and is about 1,000 Rs. cheaper.

There are quite a few changes on the Optimus L3 Dual E405 when compared with the LG Optimus L3 E400 model.  The Dual E405 too comes with a cortex A5 processor clocked at 800MHz with Adreno 200 GPU. The Android 2.3 OS runs the show on a 384MB RAM with 1GB internal storage. There is the micro SD slot to add up that extra bit of space (via external microSD card up to 32GB).

This handset sports a 3.2 inch TFT capacitive LCD touchscreen display with 262K colours over a 320×240 pixels resolution (QVGA). This dual SIM android phone weighs 108 grams with 11.85mm thickness.

The LG Optimus L3 Dual E405 is social networking ready, supports 3G (HSDPA 3.6Mbp), EDGE / GPRS (Class 12) and Wi-Fi. Other features are USB; Tethering supported both USB and via Wi-Fi, 3.5mm jack, built in GPS with A-GPS which works seamlessly with Google Maps.

The camera on the Dual E405 has got a slight upgrade to 3.2 Megapixel with autofocus feature. There is no front camera and LED flash. The 1500 mAh battery (Li-ion) lasts for over a month and talktime is also impressive of up to 10 hours. I really don’t understand how the battery performance has increased when the specs are the same and the E405 also come with a slightly bigger screen.

The L3 Dual E405 (Dual SIM) price in India is Rs. 8,299 approx Rs. 1K more than the single SIM version. This phone comes with a 1 year warranty.  The display resolution is just too low and does not do justice to the price tag, especially when there are other handsets from other brands, cheaper and with better screen resolution.
