Description

In the middle of the crowded Android smartphone market many phone manufacturers are trying to include features in their products that stands out from the others. That is no exception from LG who’s recently tried to give their affordable smartphone and premium, the LG Magna.

The design of LG Magna is a work of art it’s pretty slender and curved bone patchers by noodle following their flagship design like the LG G4 or G Flex 2. Its screen is actually curved very slightly. Planting on the back cover it looks more aluminum compared to plastic. Once opened it has a slot refills one micro SD and two SIM card slots close to the battery. Both the volume and power buttons are placed below the camera leaving all sides of this phone button-less. Overall its design should have to be a role model for first costing less than 20k.

LG Magna possesses some lower mid-range specifications which in general is enough to satisfy daily usage even though under powered for the more intensive apps. This LG’s version of Android 5.0 lollipop is running next to its quad-core MediaTek CPU and mali-400 graphics. Speaking about real-world performance this phone is on part with Snapdragon 400 ones which means a little bit of loading is expected when opening apps.

The front of LG Magna has an IPS enabled 5 inch HD display which is without further explanation satisfying for its segment.

Within the memory department we are given 8 gigabytes of internal storage and 1 gigabyte of RAM. Unfortunately the free space provided is less than 3 gigabytes so expanding to a memory card is mandatory.

LG’s version of Android Lollipop in LG Magna is actually quite good with not so many bloatware despite leaving only a small portion on free storage. Many of those apps can fortunately be removed. There’s also features like the Quick Memo which only makes little sense since there’s no stylus. Other than that we are really happy to see the individually adjustable volume controls.

The chipset inside may not be the fastest in terms of launching apps and multitasking but it’s not something frustrating. And back we’ll hear from the loud but average sound in one word speaker.

It’s 2540 milliampere battery is decent for normal usage even though heavy users are recommended to keep their power banks with them. Additionally because of the long charging time up to more than 3 hours from an empty state. The phone meter have NFC, USB and OTG.

From dealers thoughts both cameras on the LG Magna are quite average. There’s an 8 megapixel autofocus and flash unit on the back and 5 megapixel unit on the front. At least the selfie camera has a good clarity related to its resolution despite the apparent noise. It’s full HD videos are no better with seemingly no dynamic range. Features in the default camera app is also limited but things aren’t quite within the average quality threshold for a budget smartphone.

For the ones who are looking for a sub 10-20k smartphone there actually are no serious reasons to take away the LG Magna from your list. In fact there are many other options like the quiet similarly priced Xiaomi Redmi 2 but that list will surely shrink in case you’re asking for a more premium design and high resolution selfies from a smartphone.
