Review: LG X500

By Somya Jain

LG, over the weekend, introduced its new X-series smartphone, the X500, in the country South Korea. Priced at the price cost of Rs. 18,500, the new LG X500 will be going on sale in the country from the coming Friday. Much like the LG X power2, one of the biggest highlights of the LG X500 is the large battery of 4500mAh with removable one which the company says can deliver up to 20 hours of continuous video playback in single charge. The battery on the device can charge up to 50 percent in an hour which indicates that LG X500 may not support fast charging.


The LG X500 comes with almost identical specifications as the LG X power2. The smartphone features a 5.5-inch High definition (720x1280 pixels) In-cell Touch Display, and is powered and supported by a 1.5GHz octa-core processor. It comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage, with the option to expand further with the help of a microSD card (up to 2TB). The LG X power2, on the other hand, came with 16GB inbuilt onboard storage


The LG X500 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front camera with soft-light LED flash for better selfies. LG X500 also runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box and will be available in Black Titan, Shiny Titan, Shiny Gold, and Shiny Blue colors. For connectivity, the LG X500 has 4G LTE, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.2, USB 2.0, USB OTG. It weighs around 164 grams, and measurements are 154.7x78.1x8.4mm.
