LG is launching a new model, the LG X4. Smartphone to the pain of the usual, you could even say that at the time of exit it is obsolete. And to this we should add a high price …
In mid-January 2018, LG introduced the model LG X4 + and although its general specification did not produce a particularly positive impression, the smartphone itself was still tempting. All thanks to the robust design that meets the military standard MIL-STD-810G and digital-to-analog converter (Hi-Fi DAC 32 bit / 192 kHz). LG X4 is deprived of such frills.
The only interesting feature is the ability to watch TV without having to connect to the Internet thanks to the HD DMB TV tuner (headphone connection is required). In addition, the smartphone is equipped with an IPS diagonal of 5.3 inches, a 16: 9 aspect ratio and HD resolution, that is 1280 × 720 pixels, and their density is 277 ppi. The heart of the device is four core (4x ARM Cortex-A53; 28 nm) Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 1.4 GHz processor with Adreno 308. It also received 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory, expandable with a microSD memory card with a maximum capacity of 2 TB.
On the rear panel of the LG X4 is the main camera with a resolution of 8 megapixels and a fingerprint scanner, with support for several functions (it can be used as a shutter button when shooting a selfie). On the front, in turn, there is a 5 megapixel camera. It is also worth mentioning the availability of the NFC module and the support of mobile payments LG Pay. Communication in the smartphone provides the following modules: Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n, LTE, microUSB and 3.5 mm headphone jack. The device runs under the operating system Android 7.1.2 Nougat and is powered by a 3000 mAh battery. Dimensions of the device look like this: 148.6 × 75.1 × 8.6 mm, and it weighs 164 grams.
Is not the price of LG X4 so terrible?
The cost of LG X4 is 297 thousand South Korean won, that is about 275 dollars. I think everyone will agree that this is just a cosmically high price, like a smartphone with such parameters. But in general, electronics in South Korea is more expensive than ours, hence the price follows.
