While the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 holding reign inside the Fortune runs at an underwhelming 1.1GHz , its 1.5GB RAM is a step (or more appropriately, half a step) above the 1GB smartphones that crowd its market.

Now, we'll tackle its camera-related pros and cons. With respect to the 5-megapixel sensor sitting on the rear , one can get 8-megapixel main cameras from other models at roughly the same price range. In exchange for this shortcoming, the Fortune has invested in a 5-megapixel selfie shooter , which is poised to outperform its 2-megapixel counterparts from other brands. It also offers the vanity-friendly Selfie Light , a screen-powered illumination feature.
For the price, it's fairly difficult to set expectations from this device with regards to its display. To be completely frank, however, seeing an 854 x 480 screen on a 2017 phone feels rather amiss.
In the end, this low-key display has its own merits. For one, the LG Fortune already sports a relatively-decent 2500mAh battery , and not having to power a high-profile display is theoretically going to help it last even longer. Both its 14-hour talk time and 25-day stand-by are above the average values as of May 2017.

To cap off this pros and cons review, we examine this Cricket smartphone's aesthetics. Design-wise, it doesn't have the appeal of the wildly-popular (as of this article's writing, at least) metal phone. But being such an inexpensive device, we really don't expect it to. In spite of this lack of aesthetic prowess, the Fortune has the advantage of being a thin device at 7.62mm , which should make it a viable option for fans of slim handhelds.
To sum everything up, its battery specs, selfie camera, and RAM are evidently the LG Fortune's stronger points. On the other hand, it may potentially disappoint those that are design- and speed-conscious.
