LG revealed four new mid-range smartphones targeting lower middle-class people for its 2015 season, just two-three weeks before MWC promised the handsets. The organisation followed this by launching the LG Joy on March 2015 with mixed reviews from the critics.
The LG Joy highlights 4-megapixels WVGA screen with 480 x 800 pixels and a pixel thickness of 233ppi. Looking through the demonstrated screen, one can easily identify the updated the pixel resolution in comparison to other LG smartphones. The phone is thinner in size, and the dimensions of the phone are 122.7 x 64 x 11.9 mm. In case if you want to use a slim handset, then you will be surprised to carry this easily in your pocket. LG Joy appears premium when compared with LG G Flex 2. It is a delightful cell phone. There is a slightly rough surface on the back of the handset to give a better hold to your fingers whereas the edges are more adjusted. The power button is on the right side of the handset which is a weird one as in the case of LG phones it is usually found on the back side. The volume adjustment is on the left side. Along the base, there are four different route catches for moving the telephone. However, it has been discovered some are not responsive to the underlying touch and must be pushed a couple of times actually to work.
The greatest advantage is that the LG Joy comes with Android Lollipop which is the recent and most prominent Android programming. This must be one of the least expensive handsets that have latest Android version loaded. LG Joy comes in two variants that differ in memory and RAM. One variant offers 1GB of RAM with 8GB of internal memory along with quad-core 1.2GHz processor. Alternatively, the another variant has dual core 1.2GHz processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB internal memory. Both phones have space for a microSD card, and the memory can be expanded up to 32GB.
LG Joy has a 5MP camera on the rear side that has finer features, whereas the front camera is of only 0.3MP. Though the primary camera works better, the front camera is a VGA type and is just okay for online chats and calls. The primary camera has LED with flash and also has geo-tagging. Both the cameras have video recording feature.
When it comes to battery, it has more than an average battery for a phone of its range. It has removable Li-Ion 1900 mAh battery. It can stay up to 518 hours on 2G and 641 hours on 3G mode respectively. It does not support 4G, but with 3G as well, the phone works fast enough. The 3G connectivity is not provided at this price range but LG updates with the technology rapidly.
Like most other smartphones LG Joy has its own pros and cons.WHAT WE LIKED
But looking at its price range this phone seems to be a good bargain without a sign of doubt.
