LG Magna review

 

A 5-inch phone with a lovely back

Nice ridged back ; Good display technology ; Android 5.0 Lollipop

Angular design on the sides ; Poor internal storage

The flagship of the four new mid-range phones ticks the right boxes.

LG Magna, Spirit, Leon & Joy review: First impressions

 

Ahead of MWC 2015, LG unveiled four new mid-range smartphones to add to its line-up, so we headed over to the company's busy stand on the show floor in Barcelona to take a look at them. There was no LG G4 from the company during the event, though, so...

We're not certain on the pricing of LG's new smartphones in the UK yet, but if low enough the Magna and Spirit could be excellent new entries into the mid-range smartphone market. We're expecting all four of the new smartphones to become available to...

LG Magna review - hands on

 

We go hands on with LG's curved mid-range smartphone, the LG Magna

There's no UK price for the Magna yet, but LG told Expert Reviews that it's expected to launch at the end of this month, so we'll hopefully be able to bring you our final verdict on LG's top mid-range contender very soon.

Обзор смартфонов LG Magna (H502F) и Spirit (H422)

 

Обзор недорогих близнецов-смартфонов компании LG. В материале обсудим сходство и отличия, а также плюсы и минусы устройств

Качество связи у смартфонов на высоком уровне, за время тестирования никаких непредвиденных ситуаций не возникало. Виброзвонки средней силы.

LG Magna Smartphone Review

 

Selfie smartphone. One highlight of the new LG Magna is the 5 MP camera at the front. In addition, the design as well as the functions of the mainstream smartphone have similarities with the more expensive premium products. A full success? Not quite.

stable case, bright IPS display, 5 MP front camera, storage extension via microSD, replaceable battery, useful features

rear cover susceptible to scratches, mediocre performance, only 8 GB internal storage, bad speaker, extremely long charging time

The LG Magna tries to establish some features and functions of the premium smartphones in the mainstream segment. The curved design of the Magna is based on the bigger sibling LG G4 and both the stability as well as the build quality can convince us,...

LG keeps the curves coming with Magna and Spirit phones (hands-on)

 

BARCELONA -- It seems as if these days, LG smartphones are all about curve. Following the launch of its high-end G Flex 2, LG announced its new Magna and Spirit devices. Sporting curved displays (that bend much more subtly than the G Flex 2), both...

Though pricing and availability information have not been released, LG says you can expect the phones to cost about the same as past F-series devices, which range from about $229-$299 unlocked (or £148-£194 and AU$293-AU$383, conversion).
