LG L90 hand-on

Leading the charge of the new LG Series III is the LG L90. Its 4.7″ IPS LCD display is of qHD resolution resulting in a pixel density of 234ppi. The display itself boasts nice colors and vieweing angles, but contrast isn’t particularly great.

Below the display, there’s a physical Home button sitting between a back and menu capacitive keys. On the dual SIM version, there’s no physical Home button, but four capacitive ones – back, home, menu and dual SIM manager.

The LG L90 4.7″ display is okay, but nothing spectacular

The L90 is made out of plastic, with an silver strip on the side that goes around the whole phone. The back cover is particularly interesting as it has an interesting grippy surface. It’s not too grippy, though, but does a good job of hiding fingerprints.

The battery cover is removable and reveals a 2,540mAh battery. There’s no official estimates on how long much time web browsing and talk time it can handle. The LG L90 is running Android 4.4 KitKat on a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU on the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8226 chipset with 1GB of RAM.

The back also holds an 8MP snapper with LED flash and is joined by a 5MP camera at the front for video chatting. Measuring 131.6 x 66 x 9.7 mm, the LG L90 is a bit on the thick side and is undoubtedly not a small phone. However, handling it with one hand isn’t a chore and thanks to the new LG Knock Code feature, you can easily unlock it by simply knocking on the screen with your thumb.

The back texture of the L90 doesn’t feel too grippy

The right side of the phone holds the Power/Lock key, while on the counter side there’s a volume rocker. The 3.5mm headphone jack is on the top and looks stylish with the silver band around the L90.
