LG’s latest affordable phone is available to buy in the UK from today, exclusively from Three stores, packing an HD screen, 8-megapixel camera and delightfully low £129 price tag.
This week’s news has been dominated by the LG G4, the Korean company’s sexy and feature-packed new flagship phone, but at £500 it’s not for everyone. If you’re after a solid LG experience at a fraction of the price, perhaps the LG Spirit is more up your alley.
What is the LG Spirit?
We’ve already gone hands-on with the LG Spirit and so far we like what we see. The Spirit’s 4.7-inch 720p screen seems to be a solid rival to other affordable 4G phones like the Lumia 640, and a damn fine way to enjoy movies on the go.
And those movies will stream beautifully too, thanks to the full 4G support.
You also get an 8-megapixel snapper to shoot your surroundings and share your awesome life on social media. The 8GB of built-in storage doesn’t give you much room for snaps, but don’t weep just yet as you can expand via microSD – phew.
It’s good to see LG sticking its usual premium features into the Spirit as well. You get worthy tools such as Knock Code to help keep your phone secure as well as the rear-mounted power and volume buttons we’ve come to love.
How can I buy the LG Spirit in the UK?
Three has an exclusive on the LG Spirit until June here in the UK and you can buy the handset right now for £129. Contracts start at £13 a month (for 24 months) with no up-front cost, which bags you 500MB of data and 100 minutes plus unlimited texts.
