LG G Vista 2 – mid-range smartphone with bigger screen and a stylus

LG G Vista 2 is a stylus-packed smartphone announced by the South-Korean OEM that is supposed to attack the mid-range market this winter. This is the bigger yet weaker flagship version released earlier this year and it is dedicated to people who want a good LG but can’t pay the full flagship price. In the US the device will be sold exclusively by AT&T and it will have a stylus.

This year’s LG G Vista 2 has a 5.7” display powered by a Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 13MP rear-camera and a microSD card. All of these specs are powered by a 3000 mAh battery. The device is coming out with Android 5.1 sadly, so no Marshmallow yet.

 

G Vista 2 is a step down from the 2015 flagship, LG G4, which sports a Snapdragon 808 processor, plus 3GB of RAM, and a 16MP camera. The QHD display is, of course, replaced by an HD one, even if it is 0.2” bigger in the case of the Vista 2. Do not expect the same sharpness or resolution though; technology is complicated as is, and a cheaper device will not have the same hardware as a much more expensive one.

 

 

 

LG G Vista 2 is not a cheap smartphone nonetheless, as buying one of these in the US will require you to pay no less than $450. You can also sign a two-year contract with AT&T and put down $50 to get one of these for cheap if you want.

LG Class showed its official face today and it looks and feels just like the mid-range smartphone it is. It was teased last week and now it was apparently time to release it into the world.

Under the hood, LG Class hides a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 processor paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage plus a microSD slot. Everything is hidden under a 5-inch full HD display. The device will come with Android 5.1 straight out of the box and it is powered by a 2050 mAh battery. Connectivity options include NFC, GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi, of course.

 

The main rear camera is a 13MP sensor with auto- focus and flash and the front camera has a 8MP sensor. The overall design is similar to previous LG models, with power and volume rockers on the back of the device, under the camera.

 

LG Class is already available in South Korea for the price of 399,300 won – that’s around $340 – and you will be able to choose it in White, Silver, Gold, and Blue Black.
