Gone are the days when most mobile purchases were swayed by things like a phone’s sturdiness or battery life performance. Now, it’s all about Full HD this, quad-core that, heart rate mumbo-jumbo, fingerprint nonsense.
Not always though, and certainly not for LG’s recently unveiled F90 handheld, which Sprint will apparently carry before long as the “Volt”. Pretty cool name, but what’s even cooler is the 4.7 incher packs a gigantic 3,000 mAh battery.
Of course, that comes with a downside, namely a bit of added bulk. Yet all in all, it only makes the Volt look and feel more muscular. More like a manly gadget. Don’t care so much for robustness, or stellar autonomy? Then you might be smitten with the pre-loaded Android 4.4 KitKat, or 8 MP rear-facing carema. Or 4G LTE connectivity.
Mind you, although Sprint is hush-hush on pricing matters, the LG Volt shall go fairly easy on your budgets. My guesstimate is $50 with contracts and roughly $300 outright, in which case I think we can all agree KitKat and LTE are quite the unexpected treats.
Too bad the 4.7-inch IPS panel boasts sub-par 960 x 540 pixels resolution. Also, there’s cringe worthy 512 MB RAM beneath the hood. And a lousy 4 GB of on-board storage. On the bright side, the quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC clearly tips the overall feature balance in the favor of a future purchase. Agreed?
