"The LG X screen brings the secondary ticker display of the V10 to the mid-range segment. Here's a first look"
LG has been steadily pushing out mid-range smartphones over the years, but none of them have really made an impact on the market. In fact, in the face of stiff competition from Chinese companies, it's been hard to recommend anything from LG's mid-range stable. Which is probably why the company decided to refresh this segment with a new X series of devices. Introduced earlier this month, the first two devices in this range include the LG X cam (first impressions) and X screen, and each bring one feature of a flagship LG device on a budget. While the X cam offers the dual camera setup of the LG G5 (first impressions), the X screen features the secondary ticker display introduced with the LG V10 (first impressions). Among the two devices, the X cam is the more premium of the two, with a full aluminium body, full HD display and octa-core processor, but the X screen isn't too bad off either. At MWC 2016, we had a chance to check out both devices at LG's booth, and here's our first impressions of the latter.
The rear of the smartphone is made of glass, and the black finish is very similar to what we've seen on the OnePlus X. We're not a fan of glass back panels, owing to their slippery nature and tendency to pick up smudges. The one on the X screen is no different, and we suspect you'll need a case for protection. Adorning the rear you'll find the primary 13MP camera, LED flash and more LG branding.
