Looking for a midrange smartphone with impressive battery specifications? Then you might want to check out the latest handset offering from LG. Now made available on Boost Mobile (a prepaid brand of major American wireless carrier Sprint) for a price of $150, the LG X Power features a formidable 4,100 mAh battery. The device’s battery is one of the biggest among smartphones out in the market with a similar price range.
As for the other specifications, the LG X Power’s is pretty much what one can expect among today’s midrange options. The smartphone comes with a 5.3 inch HD LCD display screen with a resolution of 1,280 by 720 pixels. This is flanked with a rather modest 8 megapixel camera on the rear side (with auto focus and LED flash) as well as a 5 megapixel selfie shooter on the front side.
With regards to hardware specifications, the LG X Power features a 1.8 GigaHertz MediaTek eight core chip set, aided with 2 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and 16 gigabytes of built in storage, which is expandable by way of a micro SD card to up to 32 gigabytes. Out of the box, the LG X Power comes preinstalled with Google’s Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Now back to the device’s battery. Because the LG X Power uses an octa core MediaTek chip that comes with power saving capabilities, the device promises better battery life than most other smartphones with a similar price. So exactly how much battery life does it offer? LG claims the device can deliver a full couple of days.
LG is certainly hoping to highlight this attribute because as far as other specifications are concerned, the LG X Power is competitive without really standing out. Moreover, the release of the LG X Power marks the first time ever that a smartphone device sporting a MediaTek chip set (a chief competitor brand of industry giant Qualcomm) is being pushed by a CDMA wireless carrier (in the next few weeks, the LG X Power handset will be made available on Sprint). It bears noting that while already available on Cricket Wireless (a prepaid subsidiary of AT&T) and regional mobile operator US Cellular, the LG X Power being carried by Boost Mobile and Sprint features a MediaTek chip, while the Cricket and US Cellular versions have a four core Qualcomm processor.
And about that $150 price, the LG X Power’s affordability may probably be a result of a MediaTek processor, which is generally considered less pricey compared to Qualcomm made chip sets.
