Reviews for the LG X power2

Large battery with nothing behind it? The LG X power2 promises a long battery life with its high-capacity battery. But besides the battery life, there are many other aspects that make a good smartphone. In our test we will find out whether LG's mid-range device can deliver here.

LG X Power 2 preview: Monster battery machine
Source: Pocket Lint English
The LG X Power 2 isn't the prettiest phone available. Sitting in this "mass tier" of devices, it hasn't been designed to turn heads, it's been designed to outlast everything else. Given the size of the battery and the relatively low level of spec elsewhere, we suspect that it will sail through a day with few problems.

LG X Power2 hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
It definitely looks like LG has made sacrifices in other areas to really focus on good battery life, so it’ll all boil down to how well it actually lasts in real-world use. That will have to wait until we give the X Power2 a full review, so fingers crossed it can match up to our expectations.

LG X Power 2

If long battery life is your priority in a phone then the LG X Power 2 could very well be for you. The success of the LG X Power 2 is likely to depend on its price – too close to £200 and the Lenovo P2 becomes a rival that's almost too big to overcome.

The X Power 2 is due to launch in March in Latin America, before hitting the US, Asia, Europe, and other regions. We don't know pricing yet, but the X Power was a relatively affordable device, so we expect the X Power 2 to fall within the same $100 to $200 range. Check back for more details and a full review when we get the phone in for testing.

Comment

Model: While Oukitel has tried to cram a large battery in its phone and succeeded it failed in other departments but with more and more users demanding larger battery capacities manufacturers have started to listen, one of them being LG which has recently released their take on a larger battery and uncompromising performance packaged into one called the LG X Power 2. An overview of the LG X Power 2 specs reveal that it is powered by an Octo-core Mediatek MT6750 processor with 16GB of internal storage, 2 GB of memory and naturally the larger battery rated at 4500mAh. So how does it stack up to its competitors? Starting with its LCD panel the LG X Power 2 is equipped with a 5.5-inch 720p screen while not impressive in terms of size it can actually help reduce its power consumption which can help prolong its battery life even with its large 4500mAh battery. Another thing would be its memory which at only 2 GB might seem scarce for an Android but manufacturers claim that with such a display size it should require too much memory. Of course, higher spec numbers tend to lead to biased views but it is safe to say while the LG X Power 2 specs might not be earth shattering, it is actually quite decent as a mid-range device since much of its performance boils down to how well the software is implemented. In terms of software the LG X Power 2 is preloaded with stock Android 7 Nougat which is actually a good thing since as it is the LG X Power 2 doesn’t have much resources for unnecessary programs. Moving on to its camera the LG X Power 2 is equipped with a 13 MP sensor which is actually quite snappy with focusing being swift and accurate. Along with the above the LG X Power 2 also sports a front facing wide angle 5-megapixel camera which can be useful for group shots.

Because the LG X Power 2 is a mid-tier phone, users should not expect much from its chassis construction which is overall made of plastic but still remains rigid enough for day to day use. As for IO just like the K10000, LG has decided to use the aging microUSB standard which should really be phased out by now with the USB type C standard. At least LG’s micro USB is actually accessible by most if not all microUSB connectors unlike Oukitel’s K10000 which has a recessed microUSB. Naturally as this phone is marketed to have a large battery and long battery life times it should score, well right? Well sort of, while LG rates it to last at least 7 days actual usage is only 2 but this is only due to intensive use, LG’s metrics might be true if the user uses the phone somewhat conservatively as opposed to intensively, so maybe what LG says might hold water. In conclusion while the LG X Power 2 is neither premium nor a flagship. It achieves its main goal while sacrificing some but it isn’t as bad as the K10000 from Oukitel which really hurts its performance.

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).


74%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
