LG announces the mid-range L Series III L40, L70 and L90, all run KitKat

    Only the L90 is worth a look if it’s off contract for less than $300. The rest are kids’ phones or destined for the developing world.

      Agreed. I read rumours that Samsung might get rid of the physical home button on the Galaxy S5, which I have grown to love. If they do, I’m going to check out the L90. At least now I have another option. Never owned a LG Android with their own UI. I had the Nexus 4.

      I also like the physical button. I made the move to Nexus for a few phones but went back to Galaxy line and I’m not dissapointed. (Nexus S then GNEX then N4 traded for Note II)

    *and will never be updated from kitkat

    So where’s KK for my G2…?

    There’s hoping that kitkat will make these budget devices usable. LG may not have the prettiest skin but it does not bog down like touchwiz.

    The L40 looks kinda like the Samsung Galaxy Ace.

    If LG’s logo wasn’t on the phone, I would have thought it was a Samsung. I’m not trashing LG at all. Just pointing that out.

    The L90 should have great battery life with those specs. Can’t see how it can compare in price to the Moto G however.

    I’m not even going to ask for KK for my Optimus G. But at least give us Android 4.3.1!

    Funny how at first glance I was like hey look the Galaxy Family then I saw LG… Talk about copy-cat! They should at least pick differnt shades/colors…
