With the numerous power-hungry applications being used today and the constant multitasking, battery capacity has never been this important.
The LG m327 seems to be the answer to this problem with a budget price tag. First launched in 2017, this Snapdragon-powered device is quite basic, apart from the powerful battery.Before jumping into conclusions let’s check out the LG X charge review.
LG m327 Specs
6.09 x 3.07 x 0.33 inches (154.69 x 77.98 x 8.38 mm)
5.5” TFT, 1280 x 720 pixels
Android Nougat (version 7.0)
Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53
16GB (MicroSD extendable)
Supported SIM types
Non-removable Lithium Polymer 4500mAh
Since the most prominent feature of the device is the LG X charge battery, let’s start with that.
The LG X features a Lithium Polymer 4,500mAH non-removable battery. Most smartphones nowadays come with non-removable batteries. Apple has been consistent with this form of battery while other flagship devices are catching on.
Very few devices come with non-removable batteries currently. One such exception is the LG phoenix 3 which was released in 2017 as well.
The LG X charge is advertised with a 2-day battery life which is possible with minimal usage such as phone calls, texting, and occasional web surfing. In a real-life stress test, the battery lasted around 11hours.
If you are wondering what the test is, it’s a video streaming test over 4G with the screen on full brightness.
At this price, the battery capacity is superb, and it is worth its name. Usually, when a device has a massive battery capacity, the manufacturer has to compromise one way or the other.
Either in terms of weight, price, or other features the device will score poorly. Let’s see where LG made the compromises.
In terms of the LG X charge dimensions, the device weighs 5.78oz (164g), which is good because usually when the battery capacity increases, phones tend to get heavier. LG M327 has a 5.5-inch HD TFT screen and measures 6.09 x 3.07 x 0.33 inches (154.69 x 77.98 x 8.38 mm).
At the core, the device is operated by a Snapdragon 425 processor which was released in just a year before the device was launched so it was pretty good at the time. Currently, the latest 4XX processor is the 460 chipset that was released in 2020.
The device has a 2GB RAM capacity and poor internal storage of 16Gb out of which only 9GB can be used. However, you can expand the storage up to 2TB using an SD card.
The device’s main selling point is its battery. I think the device does it justice. If you are looking for a device with basic functionality that has a great battery, this is the product for you.
