LG Optimus Sol E730 reviews
Pros: Excellent screen resolution, HD recording, android 2.3 OS, powerful processor and GPU.
Cons: Internal memory too low and the 5 MP camera does not come with flash.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V is in fact a better choice as it has nearly the same features when compared with the E730 but with LED flash and HDMI port.
