Fares well in real life

from Notebookcheck

LG has a nicely designed smartphone in its lineup with the 4.5-inch Leon LGH340N. It has quite a bit of value to offer and only a few shortcomings despite its budget price, including an extensive interface configuration including LTE and NFC, and a bright and viewing angle stable IPS screen. LG's Leon is also based on a good performance foundation with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 410 MSM8916 quad-core processor, Qualcomm's Adreno 306 graphics chip and 1 GB of RAM, and it remains pleasantly cool in use. More plus points are rewarded for the solid 5-megapixel camera and the latest Android 5.0.1 Lollipop OS. LG's smartphone is not a high-flyer in terms of battery life, but it delivers enough power for a whole workday.

It can be tolerated that an HD screen is not installed in view of the price, especially since LG's Leon displays sharp content despite its relatively low resolution of 854x480 pixels. However, the webcam is not convincing. Its VGA resolution is not really ideal for selfies and video chats. The 8 GB of nominal storage sound good on the spec sheet but are reduced to a low 3 GB making an expansion via a microSD card almost a must.
