With a brand like LG and a name like LG X Cam, you might expect this LG’s latest X series phone to have a super sharp camera, and guess what, LG doesn’t disappoint you. But, it has a lot more than that to offer. It is a mid-range, modestly sized Android phone with a double primary camera. On its back, this latest smartphone from LG X series has dual primary cameras with flash. The design is all plastic body looking, which gives it a not-so-classy look, but it does feel robust and tapers to a 5.2 mm thickness. This smartphone nicely fits in the palm. The phone is all set to be available in four variants: Titan Silver, gold, white and pink gold. The phone is yet to be released and is expected to hit the markets soon. Let’s look at LG X Cam in depth.
The design of this phone is quite simple looking, just like another Android smartphone from LG. The body of this phone gives you a plastic body look, but it feels good and robust in the palm. The power key located on the right, along with the volume rocker. The trays for SIM card and microSD cards are present on the left. The keys are easy enough to reach, but they have been positioned within the chassis and could be a bit trickier to find at times. At the back of LG X Cam, there is a noticeable similarity between this phone and G5, with a large camera bump having two sensors along with laser autofocus and a flash. There is no fingerprint scanner anywhere on the phone. The dimensions of the phone are 147.5 x 73.6 x 6.9 mm (5.81 x 2.90 x 0.27 in), and it weighs only 118 gm. The phone has a full HD 5.2 inch IPS LCD capacitive display with 16M colours, which gives you a big viewfinder for dual cameras on the back. The screen offers a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and has 424 PPI pixel density. The screen is bright and clear. The colours are also quite strong, although they are not as vibrant as Samsung’s Super AMOLED displays.
The LG X CAM is a Single SIM phone which supports 4G. It runs on Octa core 1.14 GHz CPU, which is backed by 2GB RAM. The internal memory of this phone is 16GB, and it also has a microSD card slot for expanding the memory. On the back, it has two cameras- a 13 MP camera with a 5 MP camera, and an LED flash. For selfies and video calling, on the front, it has an 8 MP camera. It also features WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC and microUSB v2.0. The phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It is worth mentioning that LG has coated it in its own light UI. LG has removed the familiar app drawer.
On flipping the phone, the dual cameras should be the first thing you notice. The cameras protrude out from the chassis slightly. On the back, there is a main 13 MP sensor for everyday use, with a 5 MP sensor with ultra-wide angle lens, which allows you to get more in your shots. However, you will sacrifice some image quality with that. You can take landscape pics, group photos and pictures of crowded places like parties. This feature of X Cam helps it in standing out from a bland middle market. The camera app is very nice, and it is easy to switch between two lenses. There is an excellent zoom in and zoom out animation to let you know that you have changed the lens. Switching to the wide-angle lens puts more in your shot. The shutter speed is reasonable, and the images look pretty good. At the front, LG has used their 8 MP secondary camera for people addicted to selfies. It has beauty mode and gesture shutter to back it up. To take a selfie, you can hold your hand up and then make a fist; it will trigger a 3-second countdown timer. The image quality obtained from this selfie camera is great.
The LG X Cam packed with a Lithium Ion 2520 mAh battery, which has a lot of testing to go. But according to the configuration and with dual sensor primary cameras, this phone could struggle to see a full day without touching the charger, on a single charge. There are full HD 1080p display, punchy processors, and the cameras which will always encourage you to take more and more pictures. All this points towards one direction, and that is this 2520 mAh battery is not enough for a phone like LG X-Cam. Although to help you cope with this small battery backup situation, there is a battery saver mode, which can be toggled to take effect when there is still 20 or 5 percent of battery power remaining. But still, you will need to charge it at least every night. As far as connectivity is concerned, this phone supports 4G network. For other connectivity options, it has Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, hotspot; Bluetooth v4.1, A2DP, LE; A-GPS, GLONASS; NFC and microUSB v2.0.
Of course, as the name suggest, the dual sensor primary camera is the best part of the phone. Selfie camera is also good. The main drawbacks of this phone would be its small battery, not-so-classy looking plastic design and no app drawer. Also, the price of this phone could be a big “Con” because LG has given some indications that this phone could have a higher price than LG’s X Screen. For a phone like LG X Cam, the price should be in the mid-range.WHAT WE LIKED
