LG U Review of Pros And Cons

Picture of the LG U, by LG

- Analysis by KJ David

Even though it is apparently based on the high-ranking Nexus 5X, the LG U is nowhere near as high-end, with only 2GB of RAM and an eight-core CPU that leaves us with mixed feelings, considering its 1.14GHz-only clock rate -- a con compared to many competing octa-core models' 1.4GHz-1.7GHz clock rates.

Among its pros are HD-DMB (digital multimedia broadcasting) -- a staple perk among Korean-based smartphones -- and a 3000mAh battery , which scores an above-average (as of its release) 560-hour standby time , but promises only 11 hours of talk time . Additionally, it offers 32GB of expandable memory as well as a respectable duo of 13- and 8-megapixel cameras . Its mid-level specifications are fronted by a 5.2-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) display , with an LCD protective film thrown in the package.

Judging from its pros and cons, the LG U is a 5.2-incher for shoppers with a mid-level, multimedia-oriented smartphone in mind.

Above-average radiation level:

If cell phone radiation is a concern, keep in mind that the LG U has a somewhat above-average SAR rating (1.1 w/kg). It's not necessarily too much (we've seen worse) but, at the same time, it's not one of the lowest figures.

Huge display:

We are talking about an above-average screen, making it a phablet: 5.2 inches and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels means about 11.55 square inches and an image sharpness of at least 423.84 dots per inch (DPI)!

High-resolution (13-megapixel) camera:

It includes a high-megapixel camera (13-megapixel)

Decent-resolution selfie cam:

The selfie cam resolution seems just about average.
