Straight Talk AT&T LG Optimus Logic $89.99 Android Phone Now Available

Straight Talk has quietly launched a new entry level Android phone. It's the LG L35G Optimus Logic. At $89.99, it's the least expensive Straight Talk Android device to date. Straight Talk hasn't given us much in the way of specs:

  • Android™ 2.3 
  • 3.2" 240 x 320 pxTouch Screen 
  • 3 MP Camera/VGA Video Recorder
  • 3G/Wi-Fi® Connectivity
  • 800 MHz Processor 
  • Bluetooth® Wireless Technology
  • MP3 Player (cable not included)
  • GPS Capabilities
  • 4 GB microSD™ card included, supports up to 32GB cards
  • Internal Storage Memory: 1 GB (150 MB available to the user)
  • RAM 384 MB
  • Gravity Sensor
  • Talk time up to 4.16 hours, Standby time up to 9 days
  • Dimensions: 3.5 x 2.1 x 0.6 in (89 x 53 x 15 mm)
  • Weight: 4.19 oz (119 gm)

LG's low end phones tend to pretty good so this might turn out to be a decent phone. One thing that scares me is the strange square screen. I don't know what the resolution is but I suspect that it's less than the 320 x 480 pixels which is the minimum that many Android apps require and also the minimum that Android looks good on. Update: I've confirmed that the LG Logic's screen resolution is 240 x 320 px.

Straight Talk has posted an interactive tutorial and a user guide (download PDF) (view online).

The phone is only available in Straight Talk GSM4 markets so we know that it's on the AT&T network. If it's not showing up for you on straighttalk.com try entering a GSM4 zipcode like 94102 or 65046.

  1. I sent an email to straighttalk inquiring about this phone as it just turned up in my zp code, 24502. They responded that they do not carry the LG Optimus Logic and had no information on it and could not tell me who the carrier is. Very funny since is it the first phone that pops up when you put in my zip code in straighttalk. Now that I know it is GSM though I will pass. The ATT&T network sucks in my area.

  2. For that price, it's probably a QVGA screen.

    1. can you provide you IMEI pls I need to verify if it is compatible with my services provider... please send me a email to grijalva@omegamedia.co

    2. Fermin, posting your email on the open web like you just did is an invitation to email SPAM bots. I recommend you delete it ASAP.

      Also GSM phones aren't activated, SIMs are. The phone is very securely locked to Straight Talk. If you manage to unlock it all you need to do is put your SIM in it and the phone will work on any GSM operator that supports the 850 or 1900 Mhz bands.

      I also don't recommend that anyone share their IMEI with a stranger. If that person clones your IMEI on to another device it's likely to raise a fraud alert with the mobile operator resulting in both devices being blacklisted

  5. WalMart in Ohio has them for $79.88. Might get one to unlock and use on AT&T for the WIFI. No data plan so it'll be interesting to see if I can get away with it. It's time to retire my Nokia 6085.

    1. Is this with the Zip? Doesn't sound right unless the published specs are wrong. What does it say for used and available Internal Storage at the bottom of the Application Manager screen? (Press Home, press Menu, tap Manage apps.

    2. Try moving the apps to the sd card. And if you have your email on it keep them cleaned out. Email can eat up alot of phone memory. I had to delete my main account off the phone just so I wasn't having that problem also. Also keep your text threads deleted also, these can add up quick.

      Delete
    3. i just got mine too. It is doing the exact same thing. The problem is I have plenty of room in my internal and SD card, but when i want to download another app it won't send to either. how can i set it up to download apps to one of them instead of the phone memory?

      Delete
    4. You need to hack the phone to be able to move all apps to the SD card. This article explains how: How to Install Apps to SD Card Without Android Rooting.

  7. WalMart is advertising this phone for $39.88 in their black Friday flyer. Might be worth $40 to try it?

    1. It might be worth it but I wouldn't buy it. Walmart's specs on the phone say that the screen resolution is only 240 x 320 px which is too low to look good on a 3.2 inch screen. I'm sure that there will be better Black Friday deals.

      Delete
    2. We bought two of these phones for black friday. They are awesome! we are both highly satisfied! Great phoen for a even better price! We highly recommend this phone! The screen resolution is great. the camera resolution on the other hand is alright, its a 3.0 camera

  11. Also just bought this on Black Friday $39.99, wow what a deal, I like it so much better I was using a Samsung that I paid around $200 for and it was difficult to text on and it was on sprint's network which really sucks, so happy to have better coverage and I just love this phone so far!

  12. I have had this phone since Black Friday and I am digging it. you do run out of space quickly which keeps you from texting but you can transfer apps to the SD card and free up space. otherwise this really is a decent phone. The screen resolution isn't as nice as my iPhone, but I didn't really expect it to be. I have found it easy to use right out of the box. It is fast and doesn't seem to freeze at all. Transferring music from my computer to the SD card was super easy and fast. I really have no complaints about this phone.

    1. How do you transfer your apps to the SD card? I've had to delete 3 apps just to keep my OS running...

      Delete
    2. Only some apps can be moved to the card. Here's how to check and move the ones that can along with some other tips for freeing up space in internal storage:

      1.Go to the Home screen. Press Menu and tap Settings , then Applications, then All
      2. Tap each app and tap "Clear Cache". Tap "Move to SD Card" if it's not grayed out.
      3. If there are any apps that you've downloaded and don't use uninstall them. The phone won't let you uninstall system apps that are essential to the phone's operation. If you aren't sure if you need an app or not install ES File Manager (which can be moved to the card) and use it to back up the app to the memory card before deleting.
      4. Open Messaging, if you have any picture messages, tap on the bubble containing the picture. Tap Save attachment. After the picture has been saved, tap on the bubble again and tap Delete message. Also delete any text messages you don't need.
      5. If you use Gmail, open Gmail, tap Menu, then tap Go to labels, then Trash and delete everything in Trash. If you use a different email app delete everything in its trash folder.
      6. Launch the Camera, press the Menu button, tap settings and make sure that "Storage Location" is set to "SD Card".

      To check how much internal storage you have:
      Go to the Home screen. Press Menu and tap Settings and then SD Card & phone storage. Scroll down to Internal phone storage and look under Available space. You need to have at least about 30 MB to be able install large apps.

  13. Has anybody to unlock it and use it with ATT network?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The LG Logic already uses the AT&T network. If you mean unlock it to use an AT&T SIM, that's probably not possible as Straight Talk phones are generally not un-lockable.

      Delete
    2. Can it be flashed with Optimus L3 firmware to work with ATT?
      They are basically identical phone/spec according to my research.

      Delete
    3. Not if the bootloader is locked which it almost certainly is, but you're welcome to try.

  15. Quickly becoming the worst phone ive had so far. Have downloaded maybe 5 apps and it has run out of memory space, even though it was advertised to have a full gig of internal memory, and came with a 4 gig sd card. I had to delete the facebook app because it could not be moved to the "internal memory", yet when i go to my storage, it says i have nearly 900 mb of free space... not sure its worth even 20 bucks, let alone the black friday deal.

  16. Hi, I'm thinking of buying this phone. Does it have voice command, voice recognition, voice to text, or text to speech for reading to me out loud technologies?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Voice commands and voice to text are built into the Android 2.3 OS which is what the Zip runs.

      Text to speech isn't built in but their are free apps like IVONA that enable it.

      I don't use them so I don't know how well any of the speech related features of Android work on a basic device like the LG Zip.

  21. I can't get this phone to work at all. Can anyone PLEASE help me???? First off, when I try to use the microphone/voice feature, it says "cannot connect". When I try to use the browser or get on the internet it says "no connection". When I go to the network settings, it sees my wifi router in my house and when I try to it connect to it, the phone says the connection is disabled. I have read the owner's manual and called Straight Talk and they didn't help at all. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks to anyone who can help.

    2. Same thing happened to my wife's phone. I got to checking the manual and on page 13 it shows and tells about the Proximity Sensor. It is designed to turn off the screen and lock the buttons when you put the phone to your ear. I remembered that I had just put a screen protector on her phone the day before. I removed the protector and that solved the problem. I need to find protectors with a hole over that sensor or get me a round hold punch. With a bright flashlight you can see the two little round dots under the plastic at the upper right-hand corner on the front. Hope this helps.

  24. I had the same problem with my phone not letting me end calls or do anything and the screen going black as soon as I put my phone to my ear. I triIed the power button on the top of the phone and it did nothing. I finally found a place in the Settings under Accessibility titled "Power button ends call." It was not checked. I clicked on that which checked it and now I can end calls by tapping on the power button on the top of the phone. Hope this info helps others.

    2. That's not a solution. You can't access the dial pad or speaker option or anything. My girlfriend has this phone and it just started doing it out of nowhere. With the accessibility option switched to power button ends calls, this doesn't even work. Don't know what to do need a solution.

    I got my pone about a month ago and Ive loved it up to this point. As of late I'll go out and take plenty of pictures but then I realize that none of the picture Ive taken are supported. I can't open them to look at them, cant transfer them unto the computer. Is there any where to restore these pictures because it would be a crying shame to lose all these memory? And how do I fix the problem and prevent it from happening again?

    1. That sounds like your phone isn't reading its memory card. Try removing and replacing the card to reseat it. If that doesn't help the card is probably corrupted. You might be able to copy your photos to a PC using a memory card reader.
