Sydney takes a first look at the LG Optimus V from Virgin Mobile. The Optimus has made its way onto most major carriers and is now available from prepaid carriers like Virgin Mobile. Since Virgin is Sprint's prepaid brand, the Optimus V is very similar to the Optimus S, though it does not feature Sprint ID. The Optimus V ships with stock Android 2.2 and has the same features as the entire Optimus line.
The Optimus phones have become known as decent mid-ranged smartphones and perform well for their category. The fact that it ships with Android 2.2 is a nice feature in itself, since some high-end smartphones don't even have that version yet.
The Optimus V is available from Virgin Mobile and retails for $149.99.
