Back in the day, when you hear the words “budget” or “midrange”, there ought to be some compromises.
But, that is not the true today. Nowadays, mobile phone companies slap in pretty good specs in budget-friendly and midrange phones.
The scope of the article is the LG G4 Beat. It is a midrange phone offering from LG that does not compromise on quality. In fact, the LG G4 Beat has some pretty good specs both inside and out.
The main flagship phone, the LG G4, comes with a 5.5-inch display with a quad HD resolution. The LG G4 Beat, however, is a little bit toned down having only a 5.2-inch screen with a Full HD resolution.
Although I have to admit that this is a compromise, it is understandable considering that this phone’s price is a little bit on the affordable side of things.
The design of the LG G4 Beat is pretty much the same as its flagship counterpart but, as stated earlier, the screen has been resized and so is the resolution.
The performance package of the LG G4 Beat is actually pretty awesome. It comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor that is clocked at 1.5 GHz. It also comes with the Adreno 405 GPU and 2GB of RAM.
I am surprised that the LG G4 Beat comes with an octa-core processor given its price. An octa-core processor not only outperforms any other processor out on the market but it is also guaranteed to save on battery power because your phone will not have to work as hard.
As for the phone’s camera, the LG G4 Beat comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. Both of the cameras have a laser auto-focus technology built-in so that your captured images will be perfectly still.
LG is one of the only mobile phone companies that have incorporated a laser autofocus to help with the camera. I am also quite surprised that this technology is present in their midrange phone offerings. This speaks volumes to what a great company LG is.
The LG G4 Beat is powered by the Android Lollipop 5.1 right out of the box, although, you can update this phone to the latest Android operating system, the Android Marshmallow.
If you do get your hands on this device, make sure to update to the latest Android operating system as it is way better than Android Lollipop. The interface hasn’t changed much but there are a lot of under the hood improvements that you can enjoy when getting the latest operating system.
And lastly, the LG G4 Beat comes with a non-removable 2,300 MaH Battery. The battery capacity isn’t much but thankfully, the phone comes with a fast charger that charges the phone in just under 3 hours.
If you want to get a midrange phone that has some pretty good specs and a design that looks great, the LG G4 Beat should be considered. It’s fast, the screen is good, and the camera has laser autofocus. You cannot go wrong with the LG G4 Beat.
