LG and budget smartphones have always had their love-hate relationship. We’re yet to see a top-drawer affordable smartphone from the company. The Aristo 2 seemed like it would finally break through that barrier and much to our expectation, this lowly costing smartphone (at Rs. 10,000) is packed with superb features for its price.
Entry-level build quality but good display
To expect entry-level smartphones to house excellent build quality is kind of an impossible task at the moment. The Aristo 2 features a whole plastic body that is synonymous with its price tag while the dimensions standing at an 8.1mm width and 139g weight are pretty good.
The display features a 5.0 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 294ppi pixel density. Amazingly, you get a 720p resolution atop this bad-boy which breaks a season long tradition that entry-level smartphones just have to support lowly resolutions at 540 or 480p. Kudos to LG for that!
Continuation of good features
The cameras department of the LG Aristo 2 brings good news as the smartphone features a 13 MP primary sensor while the selfie camera features a respectable 5 MP one. Didn’t expect this did you? So didn’t we.
The smartphone’s power plant features a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor backed-up by 2 gigs of RAM. A combination of these two would do well to power the slightly older built-in Android Nougat while 16 gigs of internal storage is further good news. A 2410 mAh battery juices the smartphone, an expandable card-slot up to 32 gigs and Black (Titan) colour schemes sum-up this fine entry-level release from LG. Thank God we finally got the opportunity to say that!
