Reviews for the LG K40

Hands on: LG K40 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
An unassuming affordable mid-range phone that features a surprising amount of technology but throws up performance concerns and doesn't look like it can compete with rivals from the likes of Motorola.

Imagination PowerVR GE8320: Integrated graphics card for mid-range ARM SoCs. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

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.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


LG:

LG Electronics Inc. is a subsidiary of the LG Group. LG is the world's second-biggest maker of televisions and third-biggest maker of mobile phones. With its headquarters in South Korea, the company has 75 subsidiaries worldwide that design and manufacture televisions, home appliances, and telecommunications devices. LG is an international laptop manufacturer of medium size with few reviews.

After a few years, LG largely withdrew from the laptop sector. In the smartphone segment, LG is a medium-sized manufacturer (not among the Top 5 in 2015 and 2016).


61%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
