The handset has a fairly typical design for a mid-range phone – a "classic" rectangle with rounded edges. Two phone colors are for sale: black and white. Plastic body, made with a relief "under the fabric", thanks to the LGL90 is pleasant in the hand and looks beautiful. There are no small scratches on it. In the front of the phone is a grid that covers the speaker. Near it are light and proximity sensors.
Four touch buttons are located on the display: "Back", "Home", "Menu" and a button to switch SIM card operation. Along the edges of the device is a thin edge designed "for metal". On the cover of the phone is a camera lens with flash, speaker grille and LG logo. The microUSB connector is located on the bottom edge of the phone. At the top of the phone is a headphone jack and an additional microphone. On the sides of the phone there is an on / off button and a key to adjust the volume.
The edges around the display are thin, which adds style to the look. Overall, although the phone looks pretty "standard", it looks pretty solid and attractive.
