LG L40 Dual Review

I love the LG G2 and the G3. They’re pretty amazing devices and without a doubt, the LG G3 is one of the best smartphones this year. But how about the entry level smartphones of LG? Is it that good? In this review, we will talk about their entry-level smartphone, the LG L40 Dual.

Compared to most smartphones these days, the LG L40 Dual is pretty small but that’s reasonable considering the phone is an entry-level Android smartphone. Actually, I find this smartphone very cute because of its size and curvature. At the front, you’ll see the four capacitive buttons. At the back, there’s the textured back along with embossed logo of LG.

There’s a 4GB of Internal storage but you can only used less than half of it so I really recommend you guys to use a MicroSD card on this one. Unfortunately, USB OTG isn’t supported on the LG L40 Dual. One cool feature of the LG L40 Dual is the easy switching of sim cards by just pressing one button. It is much easier to switch which sim cards to use when you’ll call or text someone.

The LG L40 Dual supports 3G and you could choose which network you would use for data connection. The audio quality of this device is quite good for its size. LG never really failed me when it comes to audio quality of smartphones.

LG L40 Dual has a 3.5” HVGA display. That’s the same screen size and resolution of the iPhone 3GS so don’t expect an enjoyable gaming experience on this smartphone. Despite being an entry-level smartphone, the display is protected by Gorilla Glass 2. The biggest feature of LG smartphones is KnockOn and thankfully, this smartphone not only supports KnockOn but it also supports KnockCode. The display is very bright and it was quite good for its price and specification. Multi-touch points? The LG L40 Dual supports up to 5 multi-touch points.

Software and Performance

If you’ve used an LG G2 before, you’ll be familiar with its UI because most of its design and experienced was borrowed from the LG G2 and not the flat design of LG G3. And yes, this smartphone is powered by Android 4.4.2. However, there are some features that aren’t available on this one like customizing the transitions but the LG L40 Dual is still very customizable and yet, the experience was smooth and responsive.

This smartphone is powered by 1.2 GHz Dual-Core Snapdragon 200 processor with 512MB of RAM. If you’re playing light and casual mobile games, you won’t have problems playing it on this device however, if you’re planning on using this device for playing heavy 3D games, you can’t probably run those games. I tried Dead Trigger 2 on this one and it was playable however, other games like Edge of Tomorrow won’t run on this device. The Antutu 5 score that I got on this device is 14400.

Again, this is an entry-level android smartphone so don’t set your expectations that high. There’s a 3.2 megapixel camera on this one and there’s no LED flash so don’t expect that you could do selfies at night. The LG L40 Dual could do WVGA video recording. Overall, don’t expect too much from its camera.

LG L40 Dual is LG’s entry-level smartphone. The UI is very easy to use and understand plus there’s KnockOn and KnockCode which are LG’s biggest features on their smartphone. However, you might not like its small display and its dual-core processor but hey, despite having that hardware the LG L40 Dual is still fun to use.
