    I can see an improvement in the budget range phones by LG with these new devices.. But still they need some more improvement.. There are
    better devices in the market of the same price range

    Low spec variant of LG G5 means these devices are Modular?if that’s the case then at the price I am impressed with the device specs.Always loved removable Battery.

  • Jeena Bittenbender

    Egh, I’d rather pay $299 and get a Nextbit Robin.

    Some decent budget phones from LG, but still they will struggle to sell these in India, if launched here, as there are better options available in these price range.

  • Pulkit Jain

    I’m pretty sure that LG would never be able to launch the device with the similar pricing in India.They will price it on higher side and even if they manage to launch it on the same price as mentioned,we still have way better options available at similar pricing.
