LG premiered the Premier LTE in 2016 along with a Snapdragon 410 processor supported by a Cortex-A53 Quad-core CPU, a 1GB RAM capacity, and 8GB of storage capacity.
2016 was a good year for LG smartphones sales. It was all well till 2018 when they recorded a 26% year on year drop in smartphone sales. Let’s check out how well the LG l62vl did during the tech giant’s smartphone glory days.
LG l62vl Specs
5.74 x 2.94 x 0.35 inches (146 x 74.8 x 8.8 mm)
5.3” IPS, 720 x 1290 pixels
Android Lollipop (v5.1.1)
Qualcomm Snapdragon 410
Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53
8GB (microSD extendable)
Supported SIM types
Non-removable Lithium-Ion 2300mAh
As always, let’s get right into it with the physical dimensions of the device. The device falls on the lighter side of the weight spectrum at 5.01oz (142g). The 5.3” smartphone released in 2016 looks pretty good for a phone released during that time.
It can even compete with devices released in 2020, based on looks and feel. Physical dimensions-wise the device is pretty standard at 5.74 x 2.94 x 0.35 inches (146 x 74.8 x 8.8 mm) for a 5.3” display with an aspect ratio of 16:9.
LG also released a Pro version of this same phone in 2018 – LG premier pro lte. Both versions have a screen size of 5.3-inches.
However, the Pro versions have slightly different dimensions that can easily be disregarded.
Let’s talk about the firmware and the components that run the device.
LG launched the Premier lte with Android version 5.1.1 (Lollipop) which first came out towards the end of 2014. Since the release of Lollipop 2 more android versions were released before the launch of the LG premier.
At the core of the device is a Snapdragon 410 chipset, which again was released before the phone was launched. It was the first chipset to have a 64-bit system by Qualcomm.
The lg premier lte RAM capacity is quite standard for a device of this caliber, as is the internal storage which can be expanded using a microSD card.
LG uses a Lithium-Ion 2300mAh power pack as the lgl62vl battery. This is below average compared to devices nowadays but is great for a 2016 device.
All in all, this device was probably reasonable in 2016 but not anymore. There are better budget phones nowadays and the LG premier lte is no match for them.
