The new LG Leon is an affordable phone that comes with midlevel specs, for example a 1.2GHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera and a low 480-pixel resolution. Nowadays, these budget handsets are very attractive, especially for clients who don’t want to spend a huge amount of money on a smartphone.
These budget phones are perfect for those who want to check emails, browse the web or listen to music. However, there are several phones out there that come at the same amount of money, so the question is how the new LG Leon is different? To be mentioned that some phones at this price range also come with better specs and a better battery life.
The new LG Leon is available at the price of 140 dollars, which is a great thing. To be added that at this sum of money, customers could also find Motorola Moto G, Samsung Galaxy Core and the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3. However, the new LG Leon is a good phone that will probably have success on the midrange phone market.
As for design, this device is compact and lightweight and it feels pretty comfortable. Moreover, it is perfect for travelling, the back curves slightly outward and has a faux-metal sheen, which adds a bit of style. The control buttons situated on the rear bulge out, which is a little uncomfortable, because it is thicker around that area.
On the top and bottom, users will find a Micro-USB port for charging, a 3.5mm headphone jack, while on the back it houses the camera with flash, the volume rocker, the sleep/power button and the speaker grill for audio.
LG Leon runs Android Lollipop, Google’s OS, which means that it comes with a larger number of apps from the company, including the Chrome Web browser, Gmail, Hangouts, Drive and Maps.
As it was earlier mentioned, this phone has under the hood a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, accompanied by 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage that can also be expanded to 32GB and a 1,820mAh removable battery. The company has declared that its battery offers 10 hours of talk time and approximately 11.7 days of standby time.
