Battery life in a smartphone is one of the issues many users struggle with on a daily basis. People are constantly looking for a wall outlet to hug because their gadget is low on juice or just plain dead. Well, you shouldn’t have that issue with the LG X Power coming to Sprint since it has a massive 4,100mAh battery inside. The LG X Power is being called a midrange phone but at its $149 price tag, I’d almost consider this a budget phone. That being said, aside from its 4,100mAh battery don’t expect any bells and whistles here.
The focus of the LG X Power is to keep you going all day without having to hug a wall outlet or carry an external battery. You won’t find water or dust resistance on the X Power. There’s no fingerprint scanner, and the design and build quality aren’t anything to write home about. It’s a simple phone with a simple 720p display and oh yeah, a MediaTek Helio P10 processor. This is the first time a Sprint phone has used a MediaTek processor and they’re not a popular choice for U.S. smartphones.
In the past MediaTek processors have gotten a bad rap with many hailing the superior performance of Qualcomm’s processors instead. But MediaTek have been hard at work improving their product and it showed in the Meizu M3 Note we reviewed recently. The Helio P10 is pretty snappy and responsive so I’d think the LG X Power can handle just about most tasks you can throw at it. The phone comes with Android 6.0 which isn’t bad for a budget to midrange phone these days.
Finally, the battery life on the X Power has been tested by PhoneArena to 15 hours, which should get most people easily through their day. While the X Power isn’t the latest svelte flagship device on the market, it has one major selling point that could matter to many: it can outlast most other devices that cost significantly more money. If you’re on Sprint, you might want to check out the LG X Power.
