phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 10 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Good build quality
  • Nice looking, stylish design
  • Feels great in the hand, with its compact size and rounded edges
  • Decent, crisp display
  • The secondary "always-on" display that sits on the top of the main display is unique and allows for quickly checking on the time, or your app notifications
  • Having a second screen constantly displaying basic, relevant information is a fairly useful on the whole and the ability to quickly jump between apps and features can be a real time-saver
  • Decent battery life - lasts the day with moderate use

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • The secondary display is a bit dim when the phone is in sleep mode
  • Average front and rear cameras
  • Average loudspeaker
  • LG's Android skin is decent but not the most refined or modern
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • Average overall speed/performance - the phone is under-powered when compared to other popular phones in this price bracket
  • Overall, as novel as the dual-screen functionality is, it still isn't enough to justify the price tag at which the competitors offer goodies like better processors and fingerprint sensors
