Out of the L series of Smartphones that LG showcased at the MWC 2014, the L90 variant was touted to be the flagship in that series. If it did justice to being selected as the flagship or has it made a mistake in doing so is far you to read and find out.

The LG L90 houses a resolution capacity of 960 * 540 pixels and the thin bezel makes its design stand out among its other handsets. It has a Cornella Gorilla Glass 2 for protecting the screen. Users who are proficient in operating their phones using a single hand will love this offering from LG.

The LG L90 has a battery capacity of 2540mAH guarantees an uncompensating over a day usage. It hits the other mid-range phones out of the park when it comes to the battery capacity as none of them offer at this level.

Feature to catch you attention:


  • Infrared Blaster: The infrared blaster switches the handset as a remote control for TV/ video players.With regards to the camera, the picture quality is very good and the pixel specification i.e whether it is a 8MP/5MP depends on the market (region) the user is buying the mobile from.


  • 1080p video recording: The camera supports 1080p video recording. Since LG has clearly segmented this mobile under mid-range we cannot expect much with regards to storage given that it comes with 8GB with an expandable provision up to 32GB.


  • First phone to run Kitkat out of the box: It has the unique feature of being the first phone to run Kitkat out of the box when it releases in India as all the other phones were Android 4.3 loaded with Kitkat update available in the near future.


  • Beast Processor: The processor is a beast here given the fact that it is a combination of speed in the form of Qualcomm MSM8226 Snapdragon 400 with a glitch free guaranteeing 1.2 GHz quad core CPU based on Cortex A7 architecture  with ability to enhance gaming experience through Adreno 305 GPU.


The pricing makes it a phone surely worth considering given that it is from one of the most trusted electronic brands.
