The LG Optimus S is an entry-level Android 2.2 smartphone available exclusively on Sprint's mobile network. It features a 600MHz processor, 512MB of RAM (512MB of ROM), Qualcomm Adreno 200 graphics and a 3.2" HVGA capacitive LCD touchscreen. Additionally, the Optimus S sports an auto-focusing 3.2 megapixel camera on the back, Bluetooth 2.1 and 802.11b/g WiFi.

The Optimus S' 600MHz processor and 512MB of RAM ensure a fairly smooth experience with most typical Android apps with some slowdown occurring during heavy multitasking. Its Qualcomm Adreno 200 graphics processing chip provides the Optimus S with greater gaming performance than typical entry-level Android devices as graphics-heavy applications are given extra processing power. Meanwhile, the Optimus S' capacitive display boasts multitouch support, offering features such as pinch-to-zoom.
