After launching some excellent devices in the high-end segment (LG G2 and LG Optimus G Pro), Korean giant LG has turned its attention towards the mid-range segment. It actually has to focus on this segment, because Indian manufacturers lead by Micromax and Karbonn are able to garner huge market share and customer loyalty in this range. Other manufacturers like Samsung and Sony also saw this gap, and hence launched Galaxy Grand and Xperia C (launched recently). However, instead of following their strategy or even launching a small variant, LG has launched a device with the same profile of Optimus G Pro, but with mediocre specs.
The device boasts of a large display of 5.5 inches at budget price, which is one of its key features. It also comes with a stylus support, which can be kept in the device itself. To use the dual SIM feature effectively, one can press the button at the front along with usual Android navigation keys for switching the SIM. It also has various software customizations from LG like QSlide, QuickMemo, QTranslator, etc.
