Top-Rated LG Cell Phones January 2015
* Also check out for all manufacturers.
This week, the LG Optimus Exceed 2, G Flex2 and G3 are our selection for best LG phones. The first one is a recent Android 4.4 KitKat smartphone boasting the Qualcomm MSM8610 processor, the second one a Android smartphone and the third one, a Android smartphone.
#1. The LG Optimus Exceed 2
An Android 4.4 KitKat model featuring the Knock Code, Guest Mode and Q-slide multitasking app -- the same mix found on other 2014 LG releases. The LG Optimus Exceed 2 sports a multi-functional 5-megapixel camera, which is somehow a standard feature among middle class Androids. It could potentially outlast the first Exceed phone, as it uses a 2100mAh SiO+ battery. It did retain some features from the first model including processing power (1.2GHz) and display resolution (800 x 400), with a slight drawback on on-board memory.

#2. The LG G Flex2
LG's G Flex series makes a 2015 comeback with the 5.5-inch G Flex2, a 64-bit 2GHz octa-core-powered model whose ultra high-end specs are sandwiched inside a curved P-OLED Full HD display and a self-healing back cover. The meat in between includes an LTE Cat9 adapter with a 450Mbps maximum data rate, a 2GB RAM capacity, and a whopping up-to-2TB support for external storage. It sports a 13-megapixel laser autofocus rear camera that records 4K videos, and packs a 3000mAh battery that promises to charge up to 50% in just 40 minutes of charging.

Question #1: Should it be a smartphone or not?
#3. The LG G3
Sitting among the royals of 2014 smartphones, the LG G3 is an Android 4.4 KitKat boasting an array of high-level features. It runs on a 2.5GHz quad-core engine, doubling up the market average in processing speed in theory. It also boasts an up-to-2TB memory expansion and a 3000mAh wireless-charging-capable battery, both among the highest capacities out there. Fronting it is a 5.5-inch Quad HD touchscreen matched by a 13-megapixel OIS camera on the back. LG adds contrast to this phone by equipping it with a simple UI, as their "simple is the new smart" slogan suggests.
#4. The LG F60
LG might have intended to offer their signature features with an entry-level Android, as the F60 does just that. The up-to-eight-point Knock Code, popular among LG smartphones, protects your safeguards your phone access. Despite having quite unimpressive camera resolutions (5- and 1.3-megapixel), snapping photos with hand gestures sounds like a pretty nifty touch. The F60 is also an LTE-ready device, which has somehow made its way as an entry-level standard as of its 2014 release. Its hardware includes a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and a 2100mAh battery.
#5. The LG Volt
LG´s 2014 release, the LG Volt is a mixture of arty smartphone features and mid-level specs under the hood. It sports an 8-megapixel backside-illuminated camera (same type as the iPhone), a Corning Gorrilla Glass 2 panel (found on rugged phones) and several of LG´s signature features including the Knock Code and Guest Mode. It runs on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat and a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, not to mention 4G LTE capability. It also boasts an up-to-24-hour talk time with its 3000mAh battery, which is among the highest capacities for Androids within this class.
#6. The LG G3 Stylus
The G3 Stylus, as made obvious by its name, comes with a dedicated Stylus pen for writing notes or making sketches. It also appears to be a mid-range alternative to the G3, running on a 1.3GHz quad-core processor paired with a 1GB RAM. LG does not mention the laser-autofocus feature with its 13- and 1.3-megapixel cameras, but does offer a gesture-shooting function. It is powered by a 3000mAh battery under the hood, while a protective Quick Circle case allows you to access functions while the rest of the screen is hidden. LG´s signature Knock Code and Smart Keyboard features finish off this mid-level Android.
#7. The LG G Pro Lite
The LG G Pro Lite (D684) seems to be a less popular variant, the more marketed one being its dual-SIM version (D686). But there were really no significant differences, as this single-SIM model still packs what LG calls a Productive Stylus Pen. It also features the QSlide multitasking app, along with other applications unique to LG. The G Pro Lite has the same camera resolution (8-megapixel BSI) and battery power (3140mAh), both of which are well within the mid-range class. Its processing power remains at 1GHz (dual-core), with a 1GB RAM.
#8. The LG G Pro Lite Dual
The LG G Pro Lite Dual has a large display (5.5 inches), a large battery (3140mAh), - and average everything else. It runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor, and its display resolution is 960 x 540 (200ppi). It comes with an 8-megapixel backside-illuminated camera, dual speakers courtesy of LG´s Dual Sound Technology, and of course, dual-sim support. It also comes with a stylus that LG calls a productive stylus - which left us wondering if the stylus actually does the work for us - and is preloaded with some standard LG applications like the QuickRemote, the QSlide multitasking app, and the QuickMemo note-taking and sharing app.
#9. The LG Tribute
LG runs its typical entry-level formula with the 4.5-inch Tribute (LS660) whose hardware is led by a quad-core 1.2GHz processor. Some perks include HD Voice for in-call noise reduction as well as LG's classic up-to-eight-point Knock Code. The Tribute sports a 5-megapixel rear camera and a pretty prehistoric VGA front-facing one. Its native storage caps off at 4GB, while the RAM stands at 1GB. Also under the hood is a 2100mAh battery that promises up to 15 hours of calling time. Finishing it off is Bluetooth v4.0, the Smart Keyboard feature and LTE connectivity.
#10. The LG G3 Vigor
LG rescales their G3 flagship formula to produce the mid-range G3 Vigor variant. This 5-incher comes with the same rear key placement and laser autofocus for its 8-megapixel camera -- both key features of the flagship model. The front-facing camera comes with a Soft Light feature, which LG says provides brighter selfies. Its more modest profile includes a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 1GB RAM and a 720p HD display resolution. Its internal memory caps of a 8GB, with support for up to 32GB of expansion via a microSD card. The Vigor´s battery is rated at 2540mAh.
