The LG skin slid over the Android OS (4.1) is not especially exciting, in fact, it's rather text heavy, yet, very clear and easy to navigate through. It's unlikely you'll get confused locating your apps and the various features of the F3 using it. Speaking of apps, LG must be seriously penalized for shipping a phone with only 1.2GB of useable memory and then blocking users from installing apps on a (up to 32GB!) memory card. Many have blamed the version of Android for this horrific problem- it ain't true. The blame falls squarely in LG for this this terrible design choice as there is no reason for any current Android phone to not be able to store and run apps from a card with ease. Sure, storing music, video and other media on the card is nice. But with so, so many apps available that can easily be run from the space of a SD card, intentionally crippling a good product like this is both insulting and infuriating.
For instance, the F3 comes with Polaris' document viewer. A decent enough program. However, if you should want to want to edit or create such docs in the bus depot- you'll need an app like Polaris Office or QuickOffice. These are comparatively large programs, so, you'll chew up lots of system RAM
It also specs in most areas just like the Iphone 4S too but you get more features and PRICE LOL!!!!!!! Worse thing about LG F3 is the User Interface is very busy and too much in my opinion.
OK so you get a great performer with Huge battery and lots of good features just like Samsung Touchwiz but I don't really like the White Interface in Settings and elsewhere (BIG Deal). ONLY BAD is small user rom of 1.2gig and NO Auto Brite.
Has a stronger black level than my Nexus 4 but I miss the Auto Brightness. But thats it so far. Buy it!! I like it and I use a Nexus 4 also.
After studying the Passmark System I'm getting it down now pretty well so I'm sure of whats here. Remember as more people submit benchmarks they can decrease or increase depending on the OS state.
Performance Benchmarks lets you see EXACTLY where these cells fit in the power and performance range. You can download the Passmark Test from Google Play yourself and run several for an average but make sure all open Apps are closed and reboot once. Then about 15 to 100 people submit these Benchmarks for every phone around and the guys Average them out so they are right on. Individual tests for CPU, Disk and Memory reads & writes, with 2D & 3D Video comprise the OVERALL Passmark System Performance. Seems to be that around 2000 Passmark is the perfect match for great performance overall.
