LG Classic Pros & Cons Review

Picture of the LG Classic, by LG

- Analysis by KJ David

The LG Classic is a 4-inch WVGA-480p smartphone whose specs are just what many would expect from its name -- classic.

Among its biggest cons are a two-core-only 1.2GHz processor , which shudders when compared to the quad-core chips used by lots of other entry-level contenders, and a 0.3-megapixel (aka VGA) front-facing camera . The latter is accompanied by some pros, however, coming in the form of Selfie Light and gesture shooting , both of which aren't really expected from a device of its caliber.

Its remaining pros and cons include a 5-megapixel LED-flash rear camera that captures 800 x 480 videos only , a sub-average 1900mAh battery capacity , and its apparent lack of 4G LTE connectivity . LG's up-to-8-point Knock Code phone-unlocking pattern is on board as well, at least adding some spice for users eyeing a classic low-end 4-incher.

On-paper Review score:

First, the Cons:

Slower smartphone:

Not too long ago, this smartphone's processing specs would have been just fine, but by today's standards, this 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with a RAM of only 1GB looks a little pale.

We were unable to find informatiion about its weight...

Unknown weight:

It's frustrating that we could not find its weight information.

Apparently no HDMI connector:

It's great that the LG Classic can record high-resolution 800 x 480 videos, but we were disappointed not to find any evidence of the Classic featuring an HDMI port (which is convenient to watch HD videos on your shiny HDTV.)

Dinosaur-esque front camera:

We know it is just the front camera, but just a 0.3-megapixel selfie camera?

Unknown SAR rating:

We didn't find SAR (radiation level) information for this phone.
