LG Phoenix 2


The LG Phoenix 2 is an affordable prepaid AT&T phone with good performance and the latest Android software.

Inexpensive. Latest Android software. Decent camera. Expandable memory. Removable battery.

Lackluster battery life. Low sunlight visibility. Lots of bloatware.

Software and Conclusions As mentioned earlier, the Phoenix comes running the latest version of Android, which is a refreshing change from most entry-level phones we review. That said, I wouldn't expect an update to Android N when it becomes available,...

LG K8 Review: In Depth


LG K8 Review: This £99 5-inch mobile offers decent value for money and works particularly well as a second handset for trips. Here's our full LG K8 review.

Smooth performer ; Camera strong in daylight ; Hardy design ; Decent screen

Knock Code unresponsive ; Poor video recording ; Crap battery life

The LG K8 is a solid all-round affordable mobile that gives the excellent Vodafone Smart Prime 7 a run for its money. If you’re after a no-frills everyday handset or a dependable second mobile for taking to festivals and the rest, we’d happily...

It was fast and had a great design, but the LG K8's camera and underwhelming display dragged it down

LG releases fashion-forward, wallet-friendly pair of phones


Flagship phones, like the LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7, have a high-end allure to them with lofty prices to match. If spending an arm and a leg for a new phone isn't an option, LG is offering two alternatives, the K5 and K8, that might be a better fit...
