LG Tribute Dynasty Review of Pros And Cons

- Analysis by KJ David

A 2018 Q1 successor to LG's dynasty of budget-class prepaid Android smartphones, the Tribute Dynasty delivers an assortment of pros and cons aiming to give users the bang for their buck (Its initial price was $99.99). That said, as far as technical specs are concerned, this 5-inch Tribute model fails to pack any audible bang.

The Tribute Dynasty's biggest cons include its outdated up-to-32GB-only external memory support (16GB internal storage) that is easily dwarfed by the 128GB and 256GB top-up storage allowances of most other 2018-released mid-rangers. Also in the mix is its underwhelming 5-megapixel front camera resolution , which feels a little too old-school for us, knowing that in comparison, many of its mid-end rivals tout at least 8-megapixel selfie shooters. Fortunately, it is not entirely a turn-off, since gesture shooting and Selfie Light -- its own makeshift frontal flash function -- are tagging along. At the back, it is fitted with a so-so 8-megapixel LED-flash main camera , which shies of the 13-megapixel shooters rocked by slightly-older LG models like the X Power 2 .

Considering that its direct series predecessor, the Tribute HD , only runs on a quad-core processor, the Tribute Dynasty's eight-core 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750 engine winds up as its biggest pro. That being said, a good number of its eight-core competitors pack at least 3GB of RAM, so we expected something more than the 2GB RAM that it has on board. As for power, although it comes with a middling 2500mAh raw battery capacity, it scores a reassuring 900-minute (15 hours) talk time that is over 15 percent higher than the roughly-780-minute average as of this technical review.

Rounding out the LG Tribute Dynasty's pros and cons is a 5-inch HD 1280 x 720 IPS display that was quite standard in the low-budget Android department as of its release. It runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat out of the box and is coated in a Champagne finish.

All said, the Tribute Dynasty, while paying tribute to its low-caliber ancestors on multiple fronts, serves as a reasonable purchase for entry-level shoppers looking for a not-too-ambitious octa-core smartphone.
