Some devices make you wonder why they were made in the first place. They don’t offer anything out of the ordinary but maybe that’s what the motive was all along. This LG Harmony 2 review will give you an account of the features you get if you purchase this phone.
Released in 2017, the LG Harmony 2 is a budget device that is not made to impress.
5.90 x 3.00 x 0.30 in (149.9 x 76.2 x 7.6 mm)
0.31 lbs (141.8 g)
5.3 in (134.6 mm)
720 x 1280 pixels
16 or 32 GB (expandable)
Android 7.0 Nougat
8 MP (main), 5 MP (front)
3000 Li-ion mAh
Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, radio
It has a black plastic body that is light and comfortable to hold. There is an LG Harmony fingerprint scanner at the back, which is quite responsive but not as fast as current standards.
Inside, the device has a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor with 2 GB RAM. It is currently running Android 7.0 Nougat but is upgradeable up to 8.1 Oreo. This is fine for a 3-year old device and for the low price it comes in. Performance is nothing more than satisfactory.
Although the resolution is quite low, the display looks pleasant. It is great for watching videos, though not movies, and playing games. You cannot enjoy high-end games on it (because the system won’t be able to support it for long).
The main camera does take some decent pictures and can shoot 1080p videos. There is an LED flash at the back as well. The front camera is somewhat disappointing. It’s good enough for video calling but don’t expect a lot more from it.
Due to the low system specs, the 3000 mAh battery runs well, giving you about 19 hours of talk time. However, the battery is not removable. That means if the battery doesn’t work, the phone won’t work.
The good and the bad
This phone may not seem great from any angle. But compare it with an LG Fortune review, and you will feel much better. The fact that it’s ordinary does not mean there aren’t any good features. Here are some that you might like:
- It is light and the plastic body does not scratch easily
- The display looks bright and colorful
- Internal storage is expandable
- Battery life is quite good
- The LG Harmony 2 specs are not that great. This means you will spend less time on your phone, which is a good thing.
Then there are the features that don’t bode so well with users:
- It does not look too great. Front camera quality is quite poor.
- Loudspeakers are not so loud. Even with headphones, the audio can get distorted.
This is a good secondary device to have. It will get the job done in urgent situations. It might be a good choice for elderly people who do not use too many apps. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued by LG and is hard to find these days.
