Presentation of smartphones LG Magna, Spirit, Leon

In the material about the LG booth at MWC 2015, I mentioned new devices literally in passing, and there were reasons for that: the devices are similar to each other and, in general, let's be honest, they are nothing extraordinary. And at exhibitions, you want to find just the opposite - top products. At the same time, you can’t just write off mid-range smartphones, because this is where many manufacturers make profits and sales, while flagships, contrary to common misconception, are far from always the basis in terms of earnings.

LG's mid-range smartphone line has been successful for several years in a row, partially it is due to her that the company maintains its position among manufacturers and is also slowly gaining popularity. Previously, these were models from the L-series, with a characteristic strict design, now it's time for another feature - curved cases. The company introduced three smartphones in the conditional average price category: LG Leon, LG Spirit and LG Magna, and I want to briefly tell you about them.

I'll start with the oldest model in the line - LG Magna. The smartphone uses an IPS-screen with a diagonal of 5'' and a resolution of 1280x720 pixels. The display is bright, with good viewing angles, responds well to touch, the only drawback that can be noted is the lack of an oleophobic coating, which is why the finger is not as clear as on flagships, slides over the screen surface, and the display gets dirty. The body of the smartphone and the screen with a protective glass are slightly curved, and this is a really noticeable effect, plus a great opportunity to stand out among smartphones of the same design in the middle segment. Another distinctive feature of the LG Magna is the volume and power buttons located on the back of the device, not the ends. I will not talk about their unconditional convenience, but I personally like this key layout format, and I really miss it, from time to time using smartphones other than the LG G3.

LG Magna is built on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset with a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor, has 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal flash memory and a microSD card slot. The device has an 8 MP main camera and a 5 MP front camera. Battery capacity - 2540 mAh. Of the features - the presence of FM radio and support for LTE, which is still not so common in devices of this class.

The smartphone turned out to be balanced: it looks good, is fast, runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop, has a good screen and supports LTE. It seems to me that the device for this category has no minuses, except for the lack of an oleophobic coating. The main question, of course, concerns the price. If LG manages to keep the price of the novelty in the region of 12,000-13,000 rubles, this will be an interesting offer on the market. If the price turns out to be close to 15,000 rubles, it will be more difficult for a smartphone to compete with the Chinese.

The second smartphone in the presented line is LG Spirit. This model has a slightly smaller screen diagonal of 4.7'' while maintaining a similar resolution of 1280x720 pixels. In terms of design, Spirit almost completely repeats Magna, in terms of characteristics, too. The difference is only in the battery capacity - in Spirit it is 2100 mAh (in Magna 2540) - and in the resolution of the front camera - in Spirit it is megapixel (in Magna 5 MP).

However, if "selfie" is not the main thing for you, Spirit looks even more interesting than Magna, in my opinion. The device is more compact, it fits better in the hand, and, importantly, when we talk about inexpensive smartphones, the smartphone will be cheaper than the older model with, in fact, the same parameters.

For both models, LG also prepared branded cases familiar to us from the LG G3 - LG Circle Case with a round window on the front half.

Also, both older models have an interesting feature - if you swipe down from the top of the screen when the display is off, you will see the current time and date.

The youngest model in this line, LG Leon, is a little simpler than Spirit. The Leon uses a 4.5'' screen with a resolution of 480x854 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 platform (12 GHz quad-core processor), 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal flash memory and a microSD card slot. The resolution of the main camera is 5 MP, the front camera is 0.3 MP. Battery capacity - 1900 mAh.

As I noted above, LG has an interesting line for its segment, and it remains to solve the most important issue - to determine the cost. With the right pricing, all three models will definitely be in demand.
