Model: The LG K50 model is recently launched to cater for mid-range mobile phone users. LG has been floating around within the smartphone industry for a long time. Albeit rather relatively discreet, this launch is one way of reiterating to the public that they are still doing well in the smartphone industry. Originating from South Korea, LG is that one brand that is still surprisingly capable of competing with other smartphone manufacturers. Mid-tier smartphones as a distinct category of its own have its fair share of competition, but LG K50 is proven to be worth the money and can be considered for purchase without bleeding out of one’s budget expenditure. The LG K50 model’s main key features are a 6.26” HD FullVision display, a dual rear camera, a 13 MP front camera, AI Cam, DTX:X 3D Surround Sound and Dual Sim. LG K50’s dimension is 30.3 inch (77 mm) in width and 63.5 inch (161.3 mm) in length making it comfortable to be used single-handedly. Visually speaking, it is a very appealing phone and the screen does not feel minimized at all. Reading, viewing documents and pictures should not be a hassle with its 6.26 inch display.
Performance wise, the LG K50 uses the 2.0 GHz octa-core processor that enables the device to operate without any apparent hiccup. It also comes with 32 GB storage thus providing ample capacity for users who are always on the go. It is also compatible with SD cards for users who seek extra space for their usage. It is strongly recommended that users who are looking for performance in their smartphones to take into account on the capacity of the RAM and processor that this phone happens to feature. Using a dual rear camera and a 13 MP front camera feels more or less the same within the smartphones in the same price-range. This smartphone is relatively a decent phone when it comes to taking picture or making video calls. Like most smartphone models within its price range, it is still considered as decent and suitable for anyone who doesn’t penalizes the quality of pictures taken on a mediocre device with intense scrutiny. Conclusively speaking, the LG K50 is not entirely a bad phone at all. Depending on the preference of the users, rather to be used as the primary mobile device, it can potentially be a great makeshift secondary phone that will enable the user to still continue their work or to multitask all at the same time. Differences are inherently there, but without thorough or proper investigative discretion, they are not entirely visible per se.

67.5%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
