LG X Power review: Plans | Pricing | Specs

LG X Power

LG X Power
  • Display

    5.3 inches

    1280 × 720


  • Storage

    16GB

  • Battery size

    4,100 mAh


The X Power lives and dies on that remarkable battery performance, and that makes it a decent choice for anyone who’s forgetful about charging their phone, because you simply won’t need to do so quite as often.

The good

  • Battery is a monster
  • Looks decent (from a distance)
  • Simple integrated launcher
  • The price is right

The bad

  • Terribly ordinary performance
  • Feels cheap
  • Sealed battery, but not water resistant
  • Outright sales only

LG’s budget X Power phone has an exceptional battery, but it’s otherwise a rather plain phone.

When you buy a cheap phone, you accept all sorts of compromises compared to devices that play in the mid-range or over $1,000 premium space. Cheaper processors, cheaper design and, all too often, smaller battery capacities are the norm in this space.

That clearly wasn’t the case with the LG X Power phone. While it retails for an affordable $349, its key selling point is the inclusion of a 4,100mAh battery, way above what you would usually expect from a phone at this price point. But does the LG X Power deliver beyond its huge battery?

Design

  • Slim and sleek design is more attractive than your average mid-range smartphone
  • Plastic construction feels a little cheaper than we'd like

Camera

  • A capable pairing of front and rear cameras suitable for regular photography
  • Hands-free shooting modes make selfies even easier

Performance

  • Can be frustratingly slow at times, even for a low-cost phone
  • A steep price to pay for that long-legged battery

Battery life

  • Phenomenal battery that outlasts all its contemporaries
  • Multi-day battery life is easily attainable

Verdict

  • If it's exceptional battery life you want, the LG X Power has it in spades
