The LG Optimus Pro C660 is an Android 2.3.5 QWERTY slab that looks the business. It was love at first sight for me. Y’all know that I am a sucker for QWERTY candybar phones, and this is no different.
The Optimus Pro looks and feels cool. And with a 800 MHz processor purring under the hood and a 1,500 mAh battery providing the juice, it sounds like an Android device that ticks all the boxes – QWERTY, touch, power and a promising battery.
It has also got Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) running the show too, which is as good as you can get on any Android smartphone now except you have the Galaxy Nexus.
- 2.8-inch capacitive TFT display
- HSDPA, Wifi, Wifi hotspot
- 800 MHz processor
- 256 MB RAM
- 150 MB internal storage + MicroSD card
- 3.2 megapixel camera
- Android OS, v2.3.3 (Gingerbread)
- Document Viewer
Here are a few pictures as appetisers.

Looking Good; Right?
I hope that I have whet your appetite a bit. I find this baby exciting. It looks like extreme value for money, and as usual Mister Mobility will be putting it through its paces in the next few weeks – all for your convenience.
But I am betting that individuals looking for a budget Android smartphone that outperforms others in its class will love this baby.
