The LG Optimus Slider, the phone well known as the "Gelato Q" is an Android-powered cellphone industrialized by LG Electronics, Inc.. It was first at large on October 17, 2011 on Virgin Mobile USA in the United States. Well along, it was out by Virgin Mobile USA as the LG Optimus Slider VM701.

The Optimus Slider features a Slider QWERTY keyboard which makes typing a lot more fun and quicker than standard touch phones. The screen size on this one is 3.2-inches big and the display resolution on it is 320 x 480 pixels. It comes with Android Gingerbread OS. The RAM and ROM both are 512MB in this device, though an additional 32GB can be added to the storage capacity via a microSD card. The processor on this phone has a single core and a clockspeed of 800MHz. The battery on the Optimus Slider is removable and has a capacity of 1500mAh.

The hulking LG Optimus Slider gets to be 4.53 inches tall by 2.32 inches wide by 0.58 inch thick. And at 5.11 ounces, it's a heavyweight. I could stuff into the back pocket of my jeans, but it was a snug fit. On the left side are a volume rocker and a Micro-USB port with a small cover. To the left is a shortcut camera button that'll open the camera app when the display is on and the phone is unlocked. I like this material since it lends the handset a more luxurious feel. In the midpoint is the 3.2-megapixel camera with no additional flash.

To the right of the lens are three small slits for the speakerphone output. Using a small indentation on the bottom of the device, you can pry the backing off to expose the 1,500mAh battery. Dragging the handset pops to show the four-row QWERTY slide-out keyboard. It lights up when in use, and although the spaces between the keys are minimal, the keys are generously sized. They're easy to press, and each button bubbles slightly above the surface, which makes typing much easier. The keyboard includes four navigational arrows, a shortcut button for emoticons, and also a ".com" button for typing in Web sites. The sliding mechanism for the keyboard is sturdy and snappy.

 The 3.2-inch HVGA touch screen has a 320x480-pixel resolution, with a pixel density of 180ppi, so don't expect rich graphics. And even though colors weren't "muted" per se, they weren't as vibrant or as rich as I've seen them in other no-contract devices (like Boost Mobile's LG Marquee, for example). Providentially, the screen is receptive to the touch, and pressing on icons, swiping through home pages, and pinch zooming was a breeze. Below the display are the four typical navigation buttons (home, menu, back, and search) that also rise above the surface for ease pressing.
The LG Optimus Slider operates on 800MHz processor. Though it's not as zippy as the dual-core LG Connect 4G, simple tasks like switching from landscape to portrait mode, opening the camera app, or zooming in on photos ran smoothly. The phone runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is preloaded with some Google apps such as the Play store, Maps with Navigation, Gmail, Talk, YouTube, and Places. Others, like Google Search, Books, Messenger, and Plus are not considered.

The phone is provided with Mobile ID, with Mobile ID, located at the third icon in the home screen's dock. With ID, you can customize your five home screen pages with certain preselected apps, widgets, and other items, depending on which ID profile you choose. For example, if you decide on the MTV package, you will get apps and widgets referring to the music news channel. You can additionally opt for an inexperienced package, which incorporates tools to assist you lead a a lot of eco-friendly way of life. Just note that deleting a Mobile ID package won't uninstall the apps that you downloaded -- you'll have to remove those apps manually. I don't like that Mobile ID is therefore integral to the phone. You can't take away the operator from the house screen's dashboard, therefore the solely selection you have got is simply to ignore it.

Right now, there are six available packs online. For commutation, the Slider is equipped with several basic task management applications, like a clock with alarm features, a calculator, Bluetooth 3.0, a calendar, text messaging (with Swype), and a voice dialer. One extra goodie is ThinkFree Office. This app's sticker price is $8.70 at the Play store; it's a mobile office suite that lets you access word documents, spreadsheets, PDFs, and more. The 3.2-megapixel camera comes with a few editing features including a 4x digital zoom; five white-balance modes (auto, incandescent, daylight, fluorescent, and cloudy); geotagging; four focus options (auto, normal, macro, and off); five photo sizes (ranging from 3-megapixels to QVGA); three photo qualities (superfine, fine, and normal), seven color effects (none, mono, sepia, negative, aqua, sketch, mono-negative); and five ISO choices (ranging from 100 to 800). The video recorder has similar offerings, like an equivalent color effects and white-balance selections.

There is no zooming or autofocus, but there are four different shooting modes (high, low, MMS for sending videos, and a YouTube mode for posting videos).
