The Optimus series may be ideal for smartphone lovers on a budget

People who sell a mobile phone for money with a firm such as Envirofone and use the cash towards buying a replacement may be interested in the LG Optimus One.

Gareth Beavis, reviewing the handset for T3, says it is a great way to enjoy the benefits of an Android operating system on a relative budget.

He admits the platform has been added to low-cost devices in the past, which have typically been plagued by irritating and unnecessary features.

However, the LG Optimus One is a different story, as it provides a "really decent" option for people hoping to upgrade their mobile.

"Those looking to take the plunge into the world of apps and touchscreens on a budget have had very little to play with - but now that's starting to change," concludes Mr Beavis.

The UK network Three has recently confirmed it has added the model to its range of smartphones in stock.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "It's now possible to get a good standard of technology for relatively little money. You could trade-in your old handset for cash and upgrade your phone."

As well as its production of smartphones, Huawei is recognised for its work in storage, networks and internet software.
