Not exactly rising from its predecessor's ashes like a Pheonix, the LG Phoenix 2 still stays within low-end Android bounds, with cons like a basic 1.3GHz quad-core CPU and a middling 2125mAh battery among its specs.
That being said, it comes with an appreciable 16GB expandable memory as well as LG's trademark rear-keys-placement design (largely for ambidextrous use). Moreover, it offers a blend of HD voice and VoLTE (Voice over LTE networks) , promising to enhance overall in-call audio quality. Lastly, even though its processor is far from fresh, the Phoenix 2 comes with 1.5GB of RAM , whereas many of its low-end rivals settle for a dated 1GB capacity.
That leads us to conclude that, even though its array of pros and cons is not as mythical as its name, the LG Phoenix 2 makes for a decent 2016 budget-tier Android phone overall.

We are talking about an above-average screen, making it a phablet: 5 inches and a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels means about 10.68 square inches and an image sharpness of at least 293.58 dots per inch (DPI)!
It includes a high-megapixel camera (8-megapixel) with the following options: Burst Shot, Cheese Shutter, Gesture Shot.
It offers these special features: HD voice, VoLTE, Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA)
The selfie camera resolution seems just about average.
Not too long ago, this smartphone's processing specs would have been just fine, but by today's standards, a 1.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 (MSM8909) processor with a RAM of only 1.5GB looks a little pale, compared to recent smartphones with their multi-core gigahertz processor and large RAM.
It's frustrating that we were not able to find information about its weight.
