LG X Power 2 Mobile Review

LG has just revealed the Power 2 handset of the LG X series along with its leading G6 smartphone at MCW, 2017.

The centre of attraction of LG X-series smartphones is that they concentrate only on one particular feature on each device. The Power 2 is the recent newcomer of the X series. Its name suggests attention on the speed but the core feature of this phone is its battery. The Power 2 has the ability of a 4,500mAh battery that puts it at par with the Lenovo P2.

It is very clear that the LG X Power 2 is targeting the lower end of the market. The phone has been designed in a way that it looks pretty attractive but has some drawbacks as well considering the amount at which it has been priced which is £200.

The outer structural framework is made of plastic and makes a creaking noise; also there is an uneven gap between various parts of the body. The look and feel of the rear side of the phone is also a little bizarre. When in light it shines and the finish is such that it feels strange to touch. When you take in account other phones which are similarly priced like Lenovo P2, Honor 6X, Moto G5, they offer metal bodies so the plastic body is something LG could have worked on a little harder.

Another area of concern is the screen that lacks vitality. Even though it is a 5.5-inch display, it is limited to 720p instead of 1080p which most of the phones with 5.5 inch display offer because 720p is best compatible with compact screen sizes and 1080p is most preferable for 5.5 inch displays. The one advantage of low screen resolution is that it enhances the battery life of the handset which is a core feature of the phone. The icons look very rough with sharp points, images are not very detailed and unlike what we see on most of the phones even the text doesn’t have a smooth finish. The phone has sufficient brightness to deal with strong lights but the colours seem to be a little dull.

LG claims that the 4,500mAh battery should last for quite a few days without needing to be charged, which is similar to what Lenovo had claimed when they introduced the P2 phone with a 5,100mAh battery and Lenovo actually lived up to the expectations, so we are hoping for the LG X Power 2 to match expectations. LG has used a MediaTek MT7650 CPU which also has a positive effect on the phone’s battery life. If your major priority in a phone is long battery life then the LG X Power 2 is a well suited phone for you.

The phone offers a RAM of 2GB, 13 megapixel primary camera & 5 megapixel secondary camera with an internal storage space of 16GB and a microSD card slot which can be used to expand the storage capacity.

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

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
