The good: TheLG Optimus Elitesucceeds at the basic while throwing in a few extras like Google Wallet and Visual Voicemail. Camera quality is quite good.
The bad: The Optimus Elite has a small, low-resolution display and a plastic build. There was some distortion in call quality.
The bottom line: The LG Optimus Elite packs a couple of interesting extras, but at its core it's no more than an average Android phone with a less than elite design.
