A year ago, Motorola has set the standard on what a budget phone in modern times should be. It has to have a comparable screen, cool specs, and a good enough camera. Because hey, money is hard to earn, and when people are looking to buy something, they want it to last for a long time.
After the massive success of the Motorola G, other mobile phone companies have jumped into the fray and have their own line of budget phones that are very good for the price.
Today, we are going to talk about the budget offering from LG. The LG G4C is the younger sibling of its flagship model, the G4. So, does the LG G4C have respectable specs that warrant your money? We will find out later in this article.
LG has taken the time to deliver us a phone that we can use even with just one hand. The LG G4C sports a curved design that they used back when they launched the LG Flex 2. The screen is still straight, mind you, but the rear is what makes it very appealing. The phone will never slip off your hands because the back cover hugs your palm nicely.
One thing to keep in mind about the design is that it only has two physical buttons, and these are the power and volume controls, both are located just below the rear camera for easy convenience.
Although the LG G4C has a thickness of 10.2, the phone still manages to weight just under 132g which is in the respectable range when it comes to daily mobile phone use.
This phone being a budget offering from LG, there may be some cutbacks when it comes to the specs. The LG G4C comes with a 5-inch screen with a 720p resolution and a pixel count of 294. Obviously, by today’s standard, this is not really something to brag about. But, 720p is also considered to be of HD quality so there shouldn’t be any reason to be shy about it. On a positive note, the screen is an IPS display panel so color reproduction and viewing angles are superb.
The LG G4C comes with pretty okay specs. It has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor, the Adreno 306 GPU, and a GB of RAM. Obviously, with only 1GB of RAM, you cannot seem to be able to multitask with this phone very well, but it should be enough to power even the most demanding apps on the Google Play store.
The camera of the LG G4C is just a simple 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front facing camera. The interface is just the default Android camera interface and there really isn’t anything special about it. For people who want to use their mobile phone to capture high-quality images, you may want to look for another phone.
But, there is no reason to frown about the phone as it comes with a hefty 2540 MaH battery. Due to the optimizations of the Android Lollipop operating system, the phone’s battery was able to last about a day and a half. That is really something to be happy about.
Lastly, although this is a budget phone, the LG G4C does have 4G LTE support. Since mobile phone service providers are pushing out 4G LTE plans, this is something to be happy about. Just make sure you have a mobile phone signal booster so that you will not have any problems connecting to your service provider’s 4G LTE service.
