About LG Tribute LS660
Introduction & Design:
A new budget smartphone by LG, there are several phones which are inexpensive without being cheap and LG Tribute is one of them. The LG Tribute isn’t just having a stylish exterior, but also comes with a super fast processor, Android kitkat and a fine camera. Physically LG Tribute is 5.02 inches tall, 2.67 inches wide and 0.42 deep with simple rounded rectangle design. On the front side, it just has an earpiece, front-facing camera lens and light sensor. There are only two tangible buttons, one on the right edge power/lock button and second on left edge volume rocker button. On the back side it has a rear camera with flashlight, small grill for speaker and LG logo.
LG Tribute lacking in display size, that is 4.5-inch which looks abnormal nowadays because people like to buy a phone with a big display. And there’s 800×480 pixel WVGA screen which is not pretty good. But in less price and so many remarkable features this weaker point were covered.
Performance: Processor, Camera and Battery
Processor performance of the phone was very responsive as it comes with a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM. You may observe some lag in opening apps, but overall its experience was good. There is 4GB built-in storage for apps, photos, files and games and also supports external SD card up to 32GB.
LG Tribute comes with 5-megapixel rear camera and VGA front facing camera. Some digital noise found in outdoor and indoor shots. The camera struggled to pick up satisfactory details, and rarely made shadows overly dark, but overall it performed well. The camera can capture 1080p video.
It has removable 2,100mAh battery which offers up to 15 hours of talk time. And phone continuously performs well full day without charge while checking email, playing games, and making a few phone calls. It stays awake full day with moderate use, but if you’ll spend a lot of time on your phone, playing performance-hogging games, you might need to top off the battery.
