LG recently expanded its portfolio with the released of three new budget smartphones the LG K40, LG K50, and the LG Q60. Today we will be giving you an in-depth review of the LG K50 which just joined its sibling at the K-series segment which seems to be a catalog of budget smartphone collection.
The LG K50 is a smartphone which comes in with lots of interesting features such as the dual primary camera setup, huge battery, and bigger memory. There is more than the specifications that we have just mentioned, but we will review them in their proper sections below.
The LG K50 features similar design pattern with some of the budget smartphones that have been released lately.
The First and foremost feature you will notice on the front of the LG K50 is the dewdrop notch which holds the single selfie camera sensor and which seats on top of the 6.26-inch display.
The display is an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels and boasts of 19:9 aspect ratio, and a ~269 PPI density, which we think is too low. The bezels on the bottom have been greatly trimmed down.
There is a dual camera setup which is horizontally placed alongside the powerful LED flash on the back of the LG K50. Below the dual camera, setup is where you will find the responsive fingerprint sensor, while the company’s logo seats at the bottom of the smartphone.
LG was careful enough to ensure that the smartphone meets the military grade durability standard through MIL-STD-810G compliance. So far, what we have been able to see about the smartphone color option is just the gray color, we are yet to confirm if that is the only color option that will be available
The cameras of the LG K50 is really not that bad at all, it is in fact among the best smartphones we have seen recently. On the back of the LGK 50, you will find the dual camera setup that is horizontally positioned and consist of a 13-MegaPixel which is the main camera sensor and the 2-MegaPixel camera for depth sensing.
Meanwhile, on the front side of the LG K50, there is a single selfie camera seated on the dew-drop notch and is a 13-MegaPixel camera sensor. Unlike the primary camera which drives in with a LED flash, the selfie camera does not come with any.
The cameras arrive with some interesting features such as the powerful LED flash for the primary camera, the panorama, and HDR.
The LG K50 arrives with the octa-core processor which runs at 2.0GHz. The processor is also assisted by a 3GB RAM for smooth, lag-free multitasking experience.
The LG K50 also runs on the latest Operating System, the Android 9.0 Pie which is also a credit to the overall performance of the smartphone.
The smartphone is also blessed with a 32GB internal storage option for all your files including media files. But should it not be enough for you, don’t worry because the storage can be further expanded up to 512GB, which will be ample enough for all your storage purposes.
The LG K50 seems to feature a few flaws and many strength in which the battery happens to be one of them. There is a moderate 3500 mAh Non-removable Li-Ion battery which can offer you a reasonable amount of hours.
The charger which comes with the smartphone out of the box is very fast, though the smartphone didn’t feature anything like a fast-charging technology neither did it come with any wireless charging technology.
