Looks interesting, it has a resemblance to the Optimus F7 it seems.

Guys, how is the Snapdragon 400 and Adreno 305 in terms of performance? Cause I just watched the first review that I found of L9 II and they said that since the CPU is energy saving, the newer games might not work that well.

Is that true? I though that snapdragon in pair with adreno 305 could be pretty good, I know that its made with 28nm technology which should enhance battery life but is it also related to performance?

So after I heard this, I wonder if it will be more powerful than L9? Or its not true?

Thanks for answer.

Similar processor with the same amount of RAM? Why even bother making a new version if you're not going to upgrade the specs?

It has adreno305!? Awesome

Adreno is awesome, I've never had a bad experience with Adreno devices

So I happen to be the owner of this LG D605 (known as L9 II). I also had the L9 I in my hands for a while. I have to say I liked the back cover of L9 I more but L9 II is smaller so it fits in my hands better.

Regarding performance I remember scoring over 14k on AntuTu benchmark (GPU test scored a lot and this phone, it lost points only in multitasking benchmark when compared with quad-core smartphones). I can post some benchmark screenshots later if you want.

RAM could really be a little bit higher (with this stock bloated LG ROM, I guess it would be ok with CM or AOSP or whatever). Sometimes OOM-killer gets my launcher when I browse the net or play games so I have to wait some time before my UI appears again when I press Home button.

I also think the loudspeaker is on a little bit quiet side when compared to L9 I but this is not a big problem - it's still loud enough and the sound is clear. Only thing I don't like about the speaker is how it is positioned - when you hold the phone in horizontal orientation you will find yourself covering the speaker a lot which is annoying.

Lack of backlight on the touch-button panel doesn't bother me - I didn't have problems operating this phone in the dark. It is easy enough to hit these touch buttons anyway.

Overall good phone, other than this RAM size and loudspeaker location problem I don't have any problems with it. Dead Trigger 2 on High graphics setting is going smooth enough for me.

That's a heck of a first post. Welcome to XDA, and thanks for the info. (:

Bought this phone couple of weeks ago, and I absolutely agree with you Varcain. Despite of few cons this phone is amazing for that price range, performance is good, screen is the same as many high-end devices and i am having absolutely no trouble playing latest games like Asphalt 8, Dead Trigger, etc...

I am just wondering when individual forum section will be available for this device on xda forums, where people with same phones could share their thought and someone even maybe will start developing custom roms for it?

And one more thing. Do you guys think this phone can get latest Android KitKat version? It would be even more awesome
