LG G Vista:
LG has launched a mid-range smartphone for all the android lovers who wish to have a larger screen, but at a lower price. This phablet (phone+tablet) has been named as LG G Vista. In this post, I am going to review this device in detail. Have you any idea that how this device has been priced with such a low figure, keeping in mind that the device has a screen size of 5.7 Inches? let me tell you that it highly compromises on the clarity of the display. It has got the pixel density of 258 PPI and there are other factors also which can answer this query for you, but before that, I will provide you the details of this device.

Lg G Vista Hardware and Performance:
The complete built of this device follow the quality and the looks of LG G2, but it does not mean that both of them have the same quality. The back of the device has some luster, which is usually preferred by the consumers. It comes with the power button, volume rockers and the camera placed at the back panel of device, something which is not conventional with other devices.
As far as its performance is concerned, then I would say that you cannot get anything better than a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 at this price range. However, most of the customers do not feel it enough for a lag-less performance, even though it has 1.5 GB RAM supporting its performance.
After a constant usage of 6 to 7 months, with continuous installation of new applications or new themes for the display, you may start getting some UI Lag from the device. Hence, it is advisable that the user should keep a limited number of applications installed. Moreover, try to clean the device time to time for better performance.
Lg G Vista Camera:
The primary camera of 8MP, along with Auto-Laser focus, will give you a decent experience of clicking some good quality and quick images. The auto-focus feature on the smartphone was really quick.
The front facing camera has nothing exceptional quality. It is 1.3 MP shooter, just like a low-end VGA camera, which is good enough for video calling.
Lg G Vista Display and Software:
With the screen size of 5.7 Inches, it falls under the category of phablets and has a resolution of 720p (1280 x 720) pixels. This results to a really low resolution of 258 PPI, something similar to the display of the old iPhone 3GS.
This means playing games or watching video over the device might not be that great experience, but you may observe a huge difference when you happen to look at the other devices around you. Usually, all the latest device have a PPI density of more than 300.
This device will come with Android 4.4.2 on the board and there will be all those pre-installed applications, which were also the part of LG G3 and LG G2. One of the pre-installed applications, that I have started using, is Quick Remote. This will use the IR Blasters on the back of your phone to control the TV. There has been no update about the further upgrade in the software of the device.
Lg G Vista Battery:
Now this is something which is really in-sync with the display of the device. LG G Vista has got a 3200 mAh battery which is enough for you to have a backup for a complete day, once it is fully charged (usage includes no gaming or watching videos).
Final Verdict On Lg G Vista:
This device is decent for the buyers who are not after the performance of the device, but are fed up on using small screen phones. The device is available at comparatively low price, hence this can be termed as a decent option in this price range.
