Named the LG L Bello (“Bello” means “pretty” in Spanish; “Belle” in French means the same), this second budget handset sits above the L Fino as it offers a mid-range experience while being better-specced in some regard. LG L Bello features a 5-inch screen and runs on Android 4.4.2 (KitKat).
Where to Buy LG Android Phones
What makes the LG L Bello “bello” (beautiful)? Aside from the LG G3 design language, a whole host of things. Let’s get into what gives the L Bello its “bello” name.
LG L Bello features a 5-inch True IPS panel, half an inch more screen real estate than that of the L Fino. This screen offers 480 x 854 pixels resolution.
The big 5-inch display is great for watching movies and web browsing, though the pixel density is not that impressive.
Processor and Memory
LG L Bello comes with a 1.3GHz, quad-core processor. Like the L Fino, the LG L Bello has 1GB of RAM for multitasking alongside 8GB of internal storage. You can add more storage with a microSD card slot that allows an additional 32GB of storage.
The 8 megapixels rear camera of the L Fino is retained in the LG L Bello, but adds full HD video recording, which is a major boost. The front camera also received a boost from 0.3MP (in L Fino front camera) to 1 megapixels in the Bello.
A 0.3MP camera and a 1MP camera will have small, negligible differences between them. With that said, don’t let these two front cameras on the two phones push you in one direction or the other. There are other features and factors to take into account.
LG L Bello is preloaded with Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) right out of the box, and features the same LG’s G3 back key that allows you to take selfies and preserve the display for as much of a movie-viewing experience as possible. Both LG L Bello and L Fino have back covers that mimic the LG G3 design.
As we’ve seen with the L Bello, there are some slight improvements in this device over the L Fino. Along with those improvements, however, comes an increase in the price: instead of the Rs. 14,500 price tag of the L Fino, the L Bello costs Rs. 18,500 for India customers (an additional Rs. 4,000).
The “Bello” in L Bello may be justified: after all, LG did provide a gorgeous design, and the design language will catch your eye before you notice all the power behind the device. If you’re an international customer who wants LG’s design language, unique software features, and a little of everything else, the LG L Bello just might be the device you’re looking for.
