LG Power X Review

1

Design and display

The LG X Power weighs a little heavy because of its hefty battery, but it’s fair enough as you would have no problem holding it in one hand. The dimensions are 148.9 x 74.9 x 7.9 mm and weigh at 139g. However it is not as heavy as LG X Mach.

The phone sports a standard 5.3-inch HD display, which can run at 720p Quad HD revolution that is happening in all the top phones nowadays. Pixels on the screen don’t stand out as it looks good enough given its size. But the bezel on the white version is quite conspicuous. Luckily the all-black colour helps to blend it well. It is also available in Gold, Titanand Indigo.

Specs and camera

The phone runs on a quad-core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.3GHz paired with 2GB of RAM. There’s 16GB of internal storage but not of the super-fast SSD variety. However, you can expand the memory upto 32GB by using a microSD card. Talking about camera, there’s a 13 megapixel camera on the rear and a 5MP frontal snapper. You would also get Android 6.0 Marshmallow along with the LG UX skin which apparently runs on all the South Korean new phones. You would be able to use most of the LG UX 5.0 features on this phone.

LG Power X solves most of the issues it previously had with its poor battery life by offering a massive cell of 4100 mAh. It also offers a Quick Charge feature. Thanks to the micro USB port (not the USB-C) on the bottom that supports fast charging.

LG Power X offers dual-sim functionality and is powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. It is well furnished with a 13MP rear camera and 8MP selfies. Connectivity options include Bluetooth, 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS.

Early verdict

Considering the design except for the bezel on the white version and all the other specifications, trying out this phone won’t be a bad choice. The prices however aren’t out yet and you also have to wait for the UK and US price availability, if it makes its way out of Asia.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Lionel Gurjao

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
