Reviews for the LG L40
Design dwarf. LG expands its L-product line downward, and adds the tiny L40 with a 3.5-inch IPS screen and dual-core SoC from Qualcomm. A long-lasting, removable battery and Android 4.4.2 are just as available as a MicroSD slot - and all that for below 100 Euros (~$135). A strong overall bundle with minor restrictions.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
