LG has been trying consistently to produce their one hit budget friendly smartphone, pursuing the fact the company has launched several smartphones, each with different characteristics. LG Leon smartphone was launched in April 2015 that features as budget segment mobile phone. The phone offers decent specs and LGs trust to its users. So, let’s see how this smartphone works in the real world.
Talking about the external dimensions of the phone, it has physical dimensions as 5.11x2.56x0.43 inches, which makes it have a pocket-friendly smartphone. The phone weighs 140 gm, thus making it a light smartphone. The phone boasts a fresh design with its faux-metal finish on the back panel and curved rear panels. Overall, the phone acts as an eye catcher. The phone is available in two colour variants i.e. Titan and Gold. About the display of this phone, the LG Leon features a 4.5 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that provides a screen resolution of 480 x 854 pixels that roughly translates to 218 pixels-per-inch pixel density. Though the display features a low-resolution screen, somehow, the screen still looks decent enough. Graphics and images may look slightly pixelated if looked carefully, however, for general day functions, it won’t act as a big distraction. One thing we did observe was the fact that the display is not as bright as other smartphones in its price segment.
The phone is powered by a Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53 processor which has a Qualcomm MSM8916 Snapdragon 410 chipset. The quad-core processor works decently and can play heavy videos easily. However, the performance may feel a little sluggish sometimes, especially when switching between various apps. Also, one can’t expect to play heavy games on this smartphone as the Adreno 306 GPU can only handle light games. The smartphone offers 8GB of internal memory, which could be expanded up to 32GB using the microSD card slot provided in the phone. The phone runs on Android OS, version 5.0.1 i.e. Lollipop. The smartphone has 1GB RAM, which in our opinion is very less. The phone offers dual SIM functionality and supports 4G/LTE networks.
The phone has 8MP primary camera that is supported by a LED flashlight and features Geo-tagging, face detection, panorama, HDR but lacks touch-focus. The front shooter is of 0.3 MP with touch focus feature. The images captured by the phone in broad daylight are grainy and lack a certain amount of details. While the images snapped in dim lighting conditions are no good too, as a lot of noise do seem to creep in the photographs, and they look faded. The video recording is done by the camera at frames like 1080p@30fps. About multimedia, the phone features a loudspeaker which produces decent sound. A 3.5mm audio jack is also provided in the smartphone. The phone also features MP4/XviD /H.264 player, MP3/WAV/eAAC+/Flac player, Photo/video editor and a Document viewer.
The battery provided in the smartphone works surprisingly well. It has a 1900 mAh Li-Ion removable battery. The phone can operate for an entire day with heavy usage. The battery promises a standby time up to 465 hours on 2G networks and standby time up to 505 hours on 3G networks. The smartphone support connectivity functions, such as Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, hotspot, Bluetooth version 4.1 with A2DP and LE, A-GPS, GLONASS, FM Radio and microUSB version 2.0. Talking about sensors, the smartphone comes with accelerometer, proximity and compass sensor.
