LG Q52 Review, Pros and Cons – Another good news for anyone looking to buy a quality non-Chinese smartphone. South Korean tech giant LG is now looking forward to catching up with Chinese companies and Samsung with the latest LG Q52 smartphone, which is a successor to the LG k51s. It was recently launched in the Korean markets in October for $280 (Approx. 21,000 INR) in two color variants – Silky White and Silky Red. It will be available soon in India. Let’s start the review of the LG Q52 smartphone.
LG Q52 Review
- A 6.6 inches IPS LCD perforated display has decent pixel density.
- In the processing unit, the Helio P35 chipset supplies power to the entire system.
- The side-mounted fingerprint sensor to keep it looking modern.
- Offers the latest Android 10 OS ready to use.
Design and Display
The design style of the LG Q52 is a brilliant optical pattern that is premium at every angle. It looks thin and is very practical and offers a much better position in the fingerprint sensor.
The LG Q52 offers a dual nano-sim configuration along with a dedicated card slot. The bezels are narrower than before, and the punch-hole is an advantage. The phone features a 6.6 inches IPS LCD screen with HD resolution (720×1600 pixels) that results in a screen density of 266 PPI.
Memory and Internal
The LG Q52 is equipped with 4 GB of RAM which compiles the 64 GB of data. In addition, storage can be extended up to 2,000 GB with the help of a Micro SD card. Under the hood, the phone comes with a 2.3 GHz octa-core Mediatek Helio P35 processor on the board, while the graphics on the PowerVR GE8320 will be useful for casual gaming.
On the other hand, software issues are managed through the standard Android 10 interface, which eventually grants the bloatware-free ecosystem.
A quad-camera configuration present on the rear panel, which includes a 48 MP primary snapper with a 5 MP ultrawide angle lens, 2MP Macro lens, and 2 MP depth sensor.
In addition to the beauty of daylight, video recording goes up to 1080p at a speed of 30 frames per second. For more exposure, the Dual-tone LED flash implant on the squircle camera plate. On the other hand, the front selfie camera has a single 13 MP camera, which also supports 1080p at 30fps video recording.
Battery and Others
The Li-Po 4000 mAh battery pack should be sufficient for about half a day of use and use the Type-C port to charge the phone. With this configuration, you will have a decent display time and a speaker with immersive sound quality. The sensors department provides a compass, accelerometer, and proximity sensor. The phone integrates a 3.5 mm headset, 4G network support, NFC, and more.
