Introduction to LG Candy
Despite the fact that most smartphone users will not see this LG smartphone as having any special features or qualities, some will find at least one or two significant features in LG Candy.
The LG Candy has a changeable back cover, the camera is valuable for the price you purchase it, and for certain users, LG Candy certainly delivers value because it addresses their lifestyle and unique needs.
The smartphone’s name seems to appeal to the heart and more than that, the body shape, display, camera features, though not perfect will undoubtedly attract a fair share of the market. Let’s take a look at the full specifications.
Design and Display
The LG Candy has a 5-inch IPS LCD HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a pixel density of 294 ppi. It weighs 152 grams, 8.2 mm thick, with 146.3 mm height. The aspect ratio for this device is 16:9 and it comes with capacitive touch-screen and multi-touch.
The device comes in black color alone, but you can have blue, silver, and gold covers bought for it.
In the camera department, LG Candy does well too. The rear camera is 8 MP with flash, and having the power to shoot on long ranger range than the front camera which is just 5 MP. This too is good for taking selfies.
Both cameras are equipped with nice features such as auto shot, gesture shot, flash for the selfie and quick share. Another catchy feature for both cameras is the one called ‘Flash jump Shot’ which captures images every three seconds and gets a total of 20 photos. Then it sticks all the photos to make a GIF.
Hardware and Operating System
The LG Candy runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat which is a good one but considering what we have now in the form of latest Android software; we can’t tell if this device will be able to update to Android Oreo or Android Pie. The quad-core processor for LG Candy is 1.3 GHz.
The storage capacity on LG Candy is not envious, but the user can be contented and know how to manage space on the smartphone. There is 2GB RAM, the internal memory is 16GB, and yes the user can expand the memory up to 32GB.
Network and Connectivity
LG Candy is adaptable when it comes to using networks on the smartphone. 4G, 3G, and 2G are available. There is a loudspeaker, FM radio, and 3.5mm headphone jack as well.
Connectivity is possible with Wi-Fi, hotspot, Bluetooth v4.2, USB connectivity, A-GPS, and two SIM slots. SIM is 4G, and 3G enabled, while SIM two is 2G enabled.
One good thing about LG Candy is that the battery is removable. That’s very much unlike the modern smartphone technologies out there. This removable battery is a Li-ion type, having a capacity of 2500 mAh, which mean the user needs to slow down when using the phone.
Price and Availability
The LG Candy has been unveiled on August 28, 2018. It is now on sale on select smartphone online stores. Before the year runs out, it will be a familiar item on offline stores too.
The price of the device is currently set at Rs 6,699, and that is about $95. This means that LG Candy phone comes as one of the smartphones that go below the $100 mark.
