If you’re an Optus customer and looking for a 4G phone, then you would benefit greatly from checking out the LG Optimus F5 over on the Optus Website. Optus has slashed the price of the phone from $299 down to a ridiculous $149.

Spec wise it contains some very decent features which make for a pretty good phone and at $149 it’s insanely good value :

  • 4.3″ qHD(960×540) IPS LCD Display
  • 1.2 GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB (Usable memory 5GB) with microSD Card Slot(Up to 32GB)
  • 5MP Rear Camera with 1.3MP Front Facing Camera
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, GPS with A-GPS NFC

  • LTE
    • 1800/2600
  • HSPA+ 42.2/5.76 Mbps

  • 2150mAh Battery
    • Stand-by Time: 500 hours

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

The F5 is responsive, has a nice display and is equipped with a user-friendly interface, but we were disappointed by its sub-standard camera.


Not sure if they’ve pulled the product but the details page just says “No content item selected”
it’s still listed in the shop and you can add it to your basket, just cant view the details page.
