The LG Optimus F3 is a bestselling 2013 smartphone that received positive reviews for its compact design, strong battery life, good rear camera and a very low price. However, some reviewers reported inconsistent 4G data performance, mediocre call quality and a cluttered UI on the small screen. All in all, despite its limitations, the Optimus F3 doesn’t fail to deliver up to its capacity as a budget-minded smartphone.

    If you’re looking for a compact Android handset, the LG Optimus F3 will satisfy prepaid customers. As an on-contract phone, however, look to other free smartphones that are better.

    A good deal if you don't mind a little interface tweaking, the LG Optimus F3 is a budget-minded workhorse smartphone.

    The LG Optimus F3 packs some cool features like floating apps and Home button LED notifications into a lightweight design. However, while this Android phone is $29 with a 2-year contract, there are other devices in the same price range (or cheaper) that are much better. If you prefer compact smartphones, the 4-inch Samsung Galaxy Victory ($49) lasts longer on a charge than the F3.
