LG's best smartphones

LG is probably the main innovator of the mobile market. The Korean company's smartphones, alas, often remain in the shadow of the flagships of other manufacturers, although many of its devices certainly deserve recognition and attention.

The Korean manufacturer of equipment LG has long been trying to catch up on the market of mobile technologies of its main competitor and "compatriot" Samsung . In recent years, LG has relied on innovation, seeking to surprise users with unexpected technical solutions - such as an additional display. But it still does not bring significant dividends - the same notorious idea with the second screen was unsuccessful, and it was decided to abandon its implementation on new devices in 2017.

What you can really praise LG for is the width of the product range. The manufacturer offers users several lines of smartphones at once - and they will be able to find gadgets for any income and for any individual requirements. In this compilation, we will describe which of the company's devices cannot be ignored.


What line of smartphones does LG offer in 2017?

For 2017, the LG catalog includes 4 lines of smartphones:

  • K - budget devices, low-functional and not very beautiful, but with very modest price tags.
  • X - models with reasonable prices (as a rule, about 10 thousand rubles), each of which has its own "superpower". For example, X View is equipped with a second, always active display, and X Venture is superbly protected.
  • Q - a new line of middle class smartphones, released in the summer of 2017. All devices are provided with proprietary displays FullVision.
  • G - the flagship line, which includes gadgets with excellent functionality and a rather high price.

Next - go through the "nominations".


A budget option

LG X Style

  • OS: Android 6.0
  • Chipset: 4-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210, clock frequency 1.3 GHz
  • Screen: 5 inches, HD resolution
  • Battery: 2100 mAh
  • RAM: 1.5 GB
  • Built-in storage : 16 GB

    Price : from 8 290 rubles

X Style - not the most affordable smartphone from the LG directory; There are also K-series models, for many of which you can pay with one bill. However, of all LG devices belonging to the budget segment, this one is, of course, the nicest.

The key advantages of the gadget X Style are its dimensions and ergonomics. The smartphone weighs a little more than 120 grams and is only 6.9 mm thick. This is not a record - there are already 5 mm models - but a very decent result. The gadget is also equipped with excellent quality IPS-screen and a good 8-megapixel camera with digital zoom. However, all these advantages are balanced by one major drawback - extremely mediocre performance. The processor in the X Style is so “ancient” that you can’t find it on other devices.

Advantages :

  • High brightness screen, which, thanks to technology In-Сell does not fade even in the sun.
  • High-quality front camera with the mode "Auto".
  • A special reading mode, when activated, which dims the bright light, so that the user's eyes get less tired.
  • Slim body.

Disadvantages :

  • Low performance - on the smartphone a weak processor and little RAM.
  • Display frame too large.

Other budget smartphones: K10, K8, K7, K3 (it is better to take models of 2017).

LG X Power 2

  • OS: Android 7.0
  • Chipset: 8-core MediaTek MT6750, 1.5 GHz clock speed
  • Screen: 5.5 inches, HD resolution
  • Battery: 4500 mAh
  • RAM: 2 GB
  • Built-in storage : 16 GB

    Price : from 11 050 rubles

The LG X Power 2 smartphone is not in the cohort of LG premium smartphones and is generally remarkable for only one thing - the battery life. The manufacturer assures that the gadget, provided with a 4500 mAh battery, can withstand 18 hours of continuous viewing of films, 19 hours of wandering through Internet pages and 12 hours in navigator mode! The skepticism of those who advise users to "remove noodles from their ears," is broken about the test results - X Power 2 doesn’t get discharged by only 5% in just an hour and a half of working with Google maps.

It is also important that the “long-liver” from LG supports the Quick Charge 2.0 quick charge function. True, since the battery capacity is quite high, it still takes plenty of time to recharge - only 27% are added in half an hour.

Advantages :

  • Long autonomous work.
  • OTG support - with the help of X Power 2 you can recharge other devices.
  • Good rear camera with high resolution (13 megapixels).
  • Support 4G and NFC .

Disadvantages :

  • The design is primitive, you can even say, boring - X Power 2 does not look like a modern phone.
  • Overpriced - Chinese manufacturers sell gadgets with similar functionality much cheaper.
  • No fingerprint scanner .

Other smartphones with good batteries: X Venture, X Power.


Inexpensive camera phone

LG X Cam

  • OS: Android 6.0
  • Chipset: 4-core MediaTek MT6753, 1.3 GHz clock speed
  • Screen: 5.2 inches, FullHD resolution
  • Battery: 2520 mAh
  • RAM: 2 GB

The additional module has a smaller resolution (5 megapixels), but the lens is wide-angle - 120 degrees. Acting in a pair, the two modules can give the user high-quality panoramic images, which will show even the smallest details.

Advantages :

  • Low weight - only 120 grams.
  • FullHD-display, which, thanks to technology In-Cell is able to very accurately transfer colors.
  • Dual camera .

Disadvantages :

  • Moderate performance - the X Cam processor is not powerful.

For creative people

LG Stylus 3

  • OS: Android 7.0

  • Screen: 5.7 inches, HD resolution
  • Battery: 3200 mAh
  • RAM: 2 GB

    Price : from 12 290 rubles

This LG smartphone is a representative of the “endangered tribe” of devices with stylus. Stylus 3 user can draw on the screen and make handwritten notes - even when the screen itself is off. The technology used here is not as modern as, for example, on the latest gadgets of the Samsung Note series - the smartphone is not able to recognize thousands of levels of clicking on the screen.

Disadvantages :

  • The plastic case is no match for metal in terms of strength.
  • Mediocre front camera - the resolution of 8 megapixels in this case does not help out.
  • Overpriced - if you buy a device from China with the same functionality, you will definitely be able to meet 10 thousand rubles.

"Unlimited"

LG Q6

  • OS: Android 7.1
  • Chipset: 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 , 1.4 GHz
  • Screen: 5.5 inches, resolution 2160 × 1080
  • Battery: 3000 mAh
  • RAM: 3 GB
  • Built-in storage : 32 GB

    Price : from 12 290 rubles

LG Q6 experts consider the “younger brother” of the G6 smartphone - although the functionality of the flagship is very far from him. However, in terms of the quality of the display, the Q6 is quite a bit inferior: the device has a 5.5-inch FullVision corporate screen with FullHD + resolution and an 18: 9 aspect ratio . The screen occupies 79.31% of the frontal surface - according to this indicator, the Q6 even surpasses the vaunted and expensive G6, which has “only” 78.57%.

  • Screen: 5.3 inches, QHD resolution
  • Battery: 2800 mAh
  • RAM: 3 GB
  • Built-in storage : 32 GB

    Price : from 16 800 rubles

LG G5, released in 2016, was the world's first modular smartphone , which went "to the masses". The idea of ​​the engineers at the Korean company, however, was not as large as that of the developers of Project Ara, who were going to offer users to “assemble Frankenstein”. On the G5 it will be possible to change only the lower unit together with the battery.

Despite the fact that LG promised to flood the windows of shops with a wide variety of plug-in modules for the G5, others, alas, have not yet appeared. G5 topped the popularity ratings in Korea, but in Europe and the United States, the model was met very coldly.

Advantages :

  • Innovative design.
  • Dual camera - one of the "eyes" has a wide-angle lens.
  • Smart fingerprint sensor.
  • Metallic design.
  • Support of the Always-On Display function - the main information is visible even on the locked screen.

Disadvantages :

  • The high cost of the modules - for that from Bang Olufsen, will have to pay about 5 thousand rubles.
  • Battery small capacity.

Other smartphones with a curious design: V20.


The best of the best

LG G6

  • OS: Android 7.0
  • Chipset: 4-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 , the clock frequency of 2.35 GHz
  • Screen: 5.7 inches, resolution 2880 × 1440
  • Battery: 3300 mAh
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Built-in storage : 64 GB

    Price : from 28 530 rubles

LG G6 is the flagship of the 2017 Korean company. This smartphone, of course, cannot boast of modularity a la G5, but in order to feel confident in the premium segment it doesn’t need it.

G6 is an amazingly balanced gadget, it has practically no weak points. Gamers will surely be pleased that the device is equipped with a powerful processor from Qualcomm of one of the newest models - no, perhaps, there is no such mobile game that the G6 could not cope with. For photographers, a double widescreen camera with a viewing angle of 125 ° will be a pleasant surprise. The musicians will find two AOP microphones in the LG smartphone - and will be able to record tunes anywhere. Even for lovers of extreme rest, the device will do - after all, it is protected according to the IP68 standard.

Advantages :

  • Brand FullVision display with QuadHD + resolution and unusual (for now) 18: 9 aspect ratio.
  • HDR 10 support.
  • Dust and moisture protection.
  • Google Assistant support.
  • Premium appearance and excellent build.

Disadvantages :

  • Combined slot - you have to choose between a second SIM and a flash drive.

Conclusion

The flagship models of the 6th generation LG turned out "for glory", but with the gadgets of the budget and middle price segments, the Korean "giant" traditionally does not go well. No, the quality of the X and Q line models is in order - users blame LG for something else: it inflates prices . Those buyers who do not disdain Chinese products, it is more profitable to purchase conditional Xiaomi or Meizu with the same functionality, but much more reasonable price tags.

  • Algie K5 surprised, of course. Recognizes gestures and translates them into teams (well, this is relative to the camera). What just will not do to get customers) She took on Avito, but without it it is available in price. I just did not have time to go and choose. A good phone, not inferior to the fashionable.

  • I also often order equipment on the Internet, but not because I am too lazy to go and choose. Repeatedly faced with situations where prices on the Internet are more attractive than in stores. There are no margins and other nonsense, and a normal adequate amount is set, which really is not a pity to pay for this or that gadget. My recent purchase was a change in the form of a smartphone, which I successfully found on Avito. Through the delivery, the boxberry received, it ensured the safety of the purchase. And I chose the LG G6. No wonder it says that he is the best of the best. For me, he is just the king of smartons and even iPhones can't compare with him)) 4 GB of memory and 64 GB of built-in !! By design and performance there are no questions at all. Beautiful, powerful, comfortable. Premium smartphone. I do not regret what I bought. It was necessary to decide on such a purchase earlier))
