The Korean company LG has just unveiled what will be its four best entry-level terminals for this year 2015 . They have been dubbed LG Magna, LG Leon, LG Joy, and LG Spirit . The one that concerns us now is the latter: a device with a 4.7-inch screen and compatibility with 4G networks that will delight those who want to get a well-equipped phone, but at the same time inexpensive.
With a careful design and a line that is as stylish as it is elegant, the LG company aims to seduce the public who remains loyal to its brand, but also those who are looking for an Android smartphone signed by a recognized manufacturer, which can offer them good guarantees . The price of the equipment has not yet been leaked, but the truth is that LG has promised to make it available to the general public for very reasonable amounts . Next, we thoroughly analyze the technical sheet of the new LG Spirit .
Design and display
The LG Spirit is an elegant device, but with a somewhat smaller dimensions than the LG Magna , which is the most equipped of the series. We like it because although it has a fairly squared design, it has rounded edges that make it very pleasant to the touch and comfortable to hold. With dimensions of 133.3 x 66.1 x 9.9 millimeters, the LG team combines two possibilities: to have a fairly large screen and a fairly compact appearance at the same time. Therefore, users looking for a device that is comfortable to carry in any pocket will like it. With a housing completely finished in plastics, we will find it available infour different shades: blue, silver, beige and white .
Regarding the screen, we can indicate that the LG Spirit includes a 4.7-inch panel (diagonally), with a maximum resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, suitable for playing high-quality multimedia content. The resulting density is adjusted to 312 dots per inch . It does not include, in any case, a protective layer against bumps or scratches.
Camera and multimedia
The camera is a very important element in any smartphone worth its salt. In this case, LG has not fallen short. The LG Spirit's main camera reaches 8 megapixels, so that users will have the opportunity to capture images and videos in a more than remarkable quality. Exist, however, a second model with camera of 5MP that could not like both the most demanding users. At the moment we do not know which version will reach the Spanish market. The phone also has a secondary camera , located on the front of the phone, which will be very useful for taking selfies. Yes, hardlyIt has 1 megapixel .
As for its multimedia capabilities, we are in the same: the LG Spirit shows a normal performance, with the possibility of playing multimedia content (music, video, photos ...) of all kinds, in the main most used formats. In addition, thanks to the LTE / 4G connectivity, it will be more feasible for users to connect to services such as Spotify or YouTube to expand the entertainment capacity of the phone, since the data download will be done in a more agile way.
Power and memory
The processor that we will find inside this equipment has a four-core architecture and is capable of operating at 1.2 GHz. However, it should be noted that there will be a second version, also with four cores, but yielding at 1.3 GHz . This chip will combine its performance with 1 GB of RAM (here there is no possible distinction between versions) and with 8 GB of internal storage , space that users can use to store a wide variety of content (music, videos, photos ...) and even applications. This capacity, it must be said, can be expanded with microSD cards, allowing us to enjoy a much looser storage to meet your most urgent needs.
Operating system and applications
If we talk about the operating system we will not run into too many surprises. Like the rest of the catalog companions, this LG Spirit comes running through Android , the operating system for mobiles and tablets from Google . In this case, in addition, and since we are facing a new team, the LG Spirit enjoys Android 5.0 Lollipop as standard. In this way, users will have access to the new Material Design user interface , in addition to all the features and benefits that are launched with Lollipop : smarter notifications, quick configuration, multi-user mode or an increase in battery performance.
As if this were not enough, LG will present some of its most celebrated functions on this team, in addition to the entire ecosystem of Google applications installed as standard. We refer to services such as Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps, Google Talk, YouTube, etc. We can also expand and improve the functions of the team by downloading new apps and video games through Google Play .
And if we talk about connectivity , we are in luck. And it is that users of this LG Spirit will have the opportunity to access 4G / LTE networks , even if they have taken a basic-mid-range terminal into their pockets. As if this were not enough, logically, the phone is also compatible with 3G networks and includes other options such as WiFi wireless networks, Bluetooth or GPS with AGPS , a feature that cannot be missing if we want to use some applications or enjoy the LG Spirit as if it were a dedicated navigator for the car. In the section on physical connections, we must mention the basics: a microUSB input , a3.5 mm output for headphones and a microSD card that will help us expand the memory of the phone.
Autonomy and availability
And we end this analysis with an important piece of information. The battery of this equipment is removable and has a high capacity ( 2,100 milliamps ) for a terminal with a data sheet like this one. The company has indicated that it should be able to offer a performance of at least one day at full capacity , but the truth is that this data can depend on or be affected by many external factors such as temperature, the state of the network, connections or time that has the battery, a part that can also be affected by the passage of time.
As for availability there is still nothing written. However, it seems that the LG Spirit will go on sale very shortly, surely right after its official debut at the Mobile World Congress 2015 in early March . We will remain attentive to confirm when it will arrive in Spain and what its price will be in the market.
