LG X5 Pros & Cons Review

Picture of the LG X5, by LG

- Analysis by KJ David

A member of LG's family of entry-level and mid-range X-series models, the X5's biggest cons are its HD-only (1280 x 720) 5.5-inch screen and 1.3GHz quad-core CPU , both of which were common indicators of low-end Androids as of its release.

That being said, some of its pros, such as a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and NFC support (mainly for mobile payments), take this 7.2mm-slim model a notch higher than many of its competitors. Additionally, it has a 2800mAh battery pack , which, even though fails to impress the power-hungry user, sounds appreciable compared to the roughly-2000mAh-only power caps offered by some other models on the mid-end market. Joining its specs are a 2GB LPDDR3 RAM, a 16GB memory, and must-have 4G LTE connectivity.

As revealed by its pros and cons, the LG X5 could have done better in certain aspects, but for shoppers who want a not-too-high-end, but not-too-basic smartphone, it sounds like a decent choice.

On-paper Review score:


Very large screen:

We're dealing with a hefty display here, making it a phablet: 5.5 inches and a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels means about 12.93 square inches and an image quality of at least 267.22 dots per inch (DPI)!

The LG X5 comes with a 13-megapixel camera.
