A new look at the budget line “curved” smartphones. Koreans this year, suddenly a lot of novelties surprise us and these surprises most of them are pleasant. This time, LG has decided to diversify the class of state employees, and even before that there is an unprecedented device with a curved screen. Try to understand what eventually came out of the formula of “light curvature + Low Price + average performance.”
Display, the protective glass and the housing models of LG Magna and LG Spirit are slightly arched, which allows owners of these smartphones stand out from the others.
These two devices apparently are not much different from each other, and one of the major differences – Display size: from entry-level Spirit it is 4.7 inches, while the Magna similar characteristics equal to 5 inches, but the convenience of phone management is not reflected.
To help you better understand what is at stake, I will give a couple of facts: at the notorious G Flex bend radius of 700 mm, while Magna and the Spirit, it is as much of 3000 mm, and therefore the curvature here felt very weak, and reach to the top of the screen.
It does not become easier, although the developers are actively argued the opposite. The rest of the displays of new products is no different: in both cases the resolution is 1280×720 pixels, Magna has a pixel density of 294 ppi, in Spirit – 312 ppi.
Despite the fact that these devices are running quite demanding Android 5.0 Lollipop, (which in theory should be an advantage), they are built on the basis of last year’s chipset MediaTek MT 6582, which copes with the current for much of 2014, 4.4 KitKat, but Lollipop’s too heavy.
As a result, smartphones certainly do not fly, but do not slow down at every opportunity and an awkward case, and the whole performance will not disappoint you, especially if you do not bring these gadgets unpredictably excessive demands.
If you are interested in more detailed technical specifications, we find both models have at their four core Cortex-A7 at 1.3 GHz each; Mali 400 video processor, 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage + support microSD.
The pictures produced with the main 8 megapixel camera, roughly correspond to their class, although it should be noted that the level of detail and color quality here is slightly higher than “just average.” But fans do self more accessible LG Sprit disappoint weak frontalkoy (Magna in this all right, there is a front camera has a resolution of 5MP, and the main brings more fun capturing pictures).
Despite the fact that today’s heroes are far from the biggest battery – 2100 mAh and 2450 mAh in LG Spirit and LG Magna respectively – the battery life of these devices can only envy. Both devices live about two days, the activity of smartphones during this time was high, so if you’re thinking about buying such a device to be able to stand out from the crowd, and not for functional delights – you can safely count on a long existence away from an outlet.
The curvature of the body, and your budget is limited – you can safely take, cheaper nothing similar in nature simply does not exist.
But if you are more important than the number of cores and gigabytes of “under the hood” getting a mobile device, it is better to look at the more common non-bent analogues in the same price range.
