LG just launched two entry-level handsets in Brazil, the G2 Lite and L Prime. Both devices share a passing resemblance to LG's higher-end offerings of late, although the internal hardware is nowhere as good.
As far as we can tell, the LG G2 Lite is a downgraded version of the G2 Mini, which in itself was a watered-down version of the LG G2. The device features a 4.5-inch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480, 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon CPU, 1 GB RAM, 4 GB internal memory, microSD slot up to 32 GB, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 3G connectivity, FM radio and built-in digital TV service along with Android 4.4 KitKat. The 8 MP camera sensor at the back allows you to shoot videos at a paltry WVGA (800 x 480) resolution, and there's a front VGA shooter that allows you to take selfies easily through the Quick Selfie mode.
The L Prime comes with a larger 5-inch screen, but the screen resolution is still a meager 854 x 480. At 8 GB, there's more internal storage, and the processor is also faster at 1.3 GHz. The 1.3 MP front shooter is also better than what's included in the G2 Lite, although that isn't saying much about either device. The L Prime has a 2,460mAh battery, while the G2 Lite comes with a 1,820mAh unit. Both devices feature the Knock Code unlock mechanism and come with power buttons at the back.
As far as pricing goes, the G2 Lite is now available in Brazil for BRL 615, which comes out to around $245, while the L Prime is slightly costlier at BRL 750 ($265). There's no word on whether LG would bring either device to other regions, although judging by the hardware on offer, it doesn't seem likely.
What are your thoughts on either device?
