|Flipkart||LG Spirit (Black Gold, 8 GB)(1 GB RAM)||Rs. 7,999|
Alongside the Magna, LG also showed its sibling named Spirit. However, apart from the screen size, there are few things that separate Spirit from Magna. The design adopted for Spirit is pretty neat and while it sports big bezels, the design is not fussy. But there is always more to a capable smartphone than just design (Motorola showed us with Moto G). What makes the Spirit special is something we find out now.
What are the specs like?
It feels LG is preparing to take on the 4G variant of Moto G with Spirit. To that effect, the Korean giant has given the Spirit a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and has coupled it with 1GB RAM. On the software front, the Spirit sports Android 5.0 Lollipop and also comes with dual-SIM capabilities. The LG Spirit comes with a 4.7-inch screen that puts out display resolution of 1280x720 pixels. The Spirit comes with 8GB internal storage capacity and it can be expanded further up to 32GB with a microSD card. The LG Spirit sports an 8MP camera on its back and it is accompanied by a 2-megapixel camera on the front. A 2100mAh battery powers the Spirit but no performance ratings are available for the same.
What is the device like?
There is very little separation between LG's Magna and Spirit. The obvious differences are price, smaller screen, a lower resolution front camera and a smaller battery. Rest everything is same, including the inclusion of 4G capabilties on the Spirit as well. It finally feels good to talk about LG's smartphones. The G3 happened to be one of the best devices of 2014 and now, Motorola faces real scare in the mid-range segment. If everything goes well, LG just might take over the mid-range smartphone segment.
