CNET First Look
LG Logos pairs a low price with a solid performanceThis compact smartphone has a compelling budget price tag. But don't get too excited -- the call quality isn't great.
[MUSIC] Hey, this is Nate with c net, and today we're checking out the LG Logos. Now, this is a bare-bones device, but it's available on US Cellular, for 99 bucks without a contract. It's not gonna blow you away. But that low price and pretty good performance could be a good fit. The Logos feels a lot smaller than it looks. It's got a 4.7 inch display with a 1280 by 720 resolution. Sure that's not the 1080p resolution you'd expect from pricey devices, but the screen look good. There's no color shifting or contrast degradation when you're looking at it off axis. And with a pixel density of three hundred and twelve pixels per inch, text looks really sharp and crisp. There is a one point two gigahertz quad core processor and its performance is just right for the price. You will run into trouble with more hardware intensive games, but casual games like Twenty work great and Grand Theft Auto Three runs really smoothly There isn't too much in the way of pre-installed apps here, which I appreciate. The phone is running LG's Optimus UI [INAUDIBLE] but it's also running Android Lollipop, the latest version of Android. That's not too common in a phone of this price. There's only eight gigs of storage, but you can pry off the back of the case to get to the micro SD card slot, which supports up to 32 gig card. There is also a removable battery. We saw an average of about 9 hours and 45 minutes on our battery draining time which is a pretty strong [UNKNOWN]. So, sure the LG Mobile can't compete with the big kids, but at $99 it's a pretty good screen and nice performance. It's a pretty strong contender in the budget pack. Head over the CNet to see how it fairs. I'm Nate, thanks for watching.
