The LG Aristo 4 Plus is not exactly a phone for those who live lavish lifestyles -- ergo, it does not quite live up to its aristo moniker. On the contrary, this LTE-ready smartphone targets an entry-level clientele with the kind of pros and cons that it brings to the table.
Starting off with its drawbacks, this Aristo edition runs on a 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm MSM8917 processor coupled with no more than 2GB of RAM , despite the fact that a few models within its price group run on octa-core engines. Also, it comes with no more than 16GB of on-board memory, which is desirably overshadowed by its up-to-2TB external memory card slot .
Rounding out its hardware specs is a 2890mAh battery, which, around the time we were reviewing its specs, was neither an appealing pro nor an utterly-disappointing con. Its forenamed battery pack scores an 11-hour talk time (660 minutes) and lasts for up to 26 days on standby.
When it comes to photography, the Aristo 4+ touts nothing that stands out versus what most other models within this category offer. It has a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera rigged with phase-detection autofocus, while a low-caliber 5-megapixel front cam is perched right above its display.
Speaking of display, it has a 5.45-inch HD+ (1440 x 720) display that lines it up with a number of other budget smartphones found here on Phonerated. Its screen has a 2.5D-curved cover glass , while the rest of its exterior is plastered in Gray.

Also part of its mishmash of pros and cons are a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, an M3/T3 hearing aid compatibility, and HD voice for enhancing the overall in-call audio quality.
So, taking its features together, this addition to LG's Aristo smartphone family befits shoppers who are eying a somewhat well-rounded budget-class Android phone.
