#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 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.

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 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.
#5. 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.
#6. 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.
#7. The LG G2
Packed with a slew of innovations here and there, the LG G2 starts with a 13-megapixel camera (with various functions, such as voice capture) and a video recorder capable of up to 60 frames per second. It also has its control buttons on the back cover (apparently to avoid mistakenly pressing them when grabbing the phone by its sides) and, with its 5.2-inch display, makes it to the phablet class. 22GB of memory are available to the user.
#8. The LG Optimus L90
The Optimus L90 brings back some LG´s signature features. These include the two-tap KnockOn locking feature as well as the Guest Mode, which allows you to set access restrictions for secondary users. It runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, setting it apart from older LG models. The latest Android 4.4 KitKat supports the Plug&Pop multimedia feature, QSlide for multitasking and Quick Memo among other pre-installed apps. A multi-feature 5-megapixel camera sits on its back, with only a VGA cam up front.
#9. The LG Optimus L9 II
The LG Optimus L9 II is proud of its 4.7-inch IPS panel with a 1280 x 720-pixel resolution and its dual-core 1.4GHz processor (partnered with a 1GB RAM). The Android smartphone is also fitted with an 8-megapixel camera that promises to work well even in low-light conditions, along with a 1.3-megapixel front-facer. It sports a 2150mAh battery and an 8GB storage memory (which can be expanded to 32GB).
#10. The LG G Flex
LG´s first curved and bendable smartphone features a rear cover with a self-healing coating, a flexible 6-inch 720p P-OLED display, and a 3500mAh battery that is reportedly the first curved one in the world. It is powered by a quad-core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, runs on the Android 4.2.2 operating system, sports a 13-megapixel camera that can take UHD (3840 x 2160) videos at 60 frames per second, and has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage memory (but no memory expansion).
