Top-Rated LG Cell Phones December 2014
* Also check out for all manufacturers.
Until our next update, the LG Optimus Exceed 2, G3 and F60 are our selection for best LG phones. The first one is a recent Android 4.4 KitKat smartphone boasting the Qualcomm MSM8610 CPU, 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 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.

Question #1: Should it be a smartphone or not?
#3. 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.
#4. 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.
#5. 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.
#6. 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.
#7. 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.
#8. 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.
#9. 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.
#10. The LG G Vista
Adding to LG´s high-end family of Android phablets is the 5.7-inch IPS G Vista. Just like the G3, its special keys are found along the camera at the back, giving it ambidextrous use and smoother sides. It sports an 8-megapixel rear camera (1.3-megapixel selfie cam) that has the same laser autofocus innovation as the G3 as well. Some of its display and multitasking apps include the Mini View, QSlide, QuickMemo as well as the Dual-Window mode. The Vista apparently looks to capture the high-end market with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor 1.5GB RAM and 8GB expandable on-board memory.
