In 2007, Prada, the most prestigious fashion company selling leather goods, decided to become a little adventurous. This is when the company announced they would be unleashing a smartphone, because in 2007, smartphones were luxurious. To get its first phone out, Prada partnered with LG to unleash the LG Prada, a smartphone running on Android operating system. The LG Prada quickly became very popular with the people who could spend some good cash. The phone was a complete luxury because it was one of the few phones to feature a capacitive screen. Today I get my hands on the third Prada phone to review, so without further a due, let’s have a look at it.
The LG Prada 3.0, unlike its predecessor, isn’t a luxury accessory. This time, the company decided to give the phone its name which is accessible to people. But, the LG Prada 3.0 is still a high end smartphone just like every other expensive phone. It does not have any thing particular that makes it stand out from other phones. If you have used or seen the Galaxy S II from Samsung, you will find the LG Prada 3.0 a very similar phone.
If I am honest with you, I would say that I am slightly disappointed to see a phone bearing the Prada name with nothing special on its exterior. This feels just like any other high end phone with good hardware specs and performance. The LG Prada 3.0 comes with a 4.3 inches touch screen, which to my surprise is based on an older technology TFT. As a result of using outdated technology, the viewing angels are low and the brightness contrast ratio also shows sign of fading images. The resolution feels fine enough, but I still expected a lot from this phone.
If only LG Prada 3.0 had AMOLED based screen, it would have been a great phone. But unfortunately, it has very standard high end specifications and a body that feels like the same as any other phone. You would only consider buying this phone if you love the brand name Prada, otherwise, it does not offer anything out of the ordinary.
