Design and Display

The look of the smartphone is totally budget from its plastic body to the small screen. There is a central circular camera at the back with fingerprint scanner below it and speaker at the bottom right. It also lacks that sleekness that comes with more premium smartphones. The rear cover is detachable and is available in four different colours which are Pink, Blue, Silver and Gold.

Same standard budget screen is seen on the smartphone with not much of a bezel reduction atound it. Featuring a 5.0–inch display is a bit small these days where you have much larger screens around, even on some budget smartphones. There is a fair resolution of 1280 X 720 pixels on the LG Candy which is befitting of a smartphone like this one.

Battery and Camera

According to the saying to whom less is given less is required, the LG Candy does not have much when it comes to battery size. You have the snartphone drawing power from a 2, 500mAh battery which is removable. There’s no fast charge but the removable battery means you can get an extra one if you want to

You have a simple set of cameras on the smartphone, a single camera on both front and back. The camera on the rear is an 8MP sensor which has auto focus and can also shoot HDR. On the selfies side, there is a 5MP camera which is only okay to use during the day to be candid.

That said, the LG Candy has a Quad-core processor with a clock speed of 1.3GHz as well as a 2GB RAM and a storage space of 16GB. The storage space can be taken up to 512GB which is quite impressive.
