LG W31 Plus: Design

LG has launched three new budget smartphones in India, and the LG W31 Plus is the most powerful of the lot. As per the design, the LG W31 Plus looks a lot like the other smartphones of this price range with a colorful plastic back panel. On the front, the phone has a 6.52-inch IPS LCD screen with HD+ resolution, protected by a 2.5D curved tempered glass with a water-drop notch on the top.

 

LG W31 Plus: Hardware Performance

The LG W31 Plus is based on the MediaTek Helio P22 SoC. This octa-core processor offers a peak CPU clock speed of 2GHz, and the chipset also incorporates the IMG PowerVR GE8320 graphics card. As per the storage, the device offers 128GB with a microSD card slot for an additional storage expansion.

 

LG W31 Plus: Camera Performance

There is a triple camera setup at the back of the LG W31 Plus with a primary 13MP sensor. Similarly, the smartphone also has a 5MP ultra-wide angle lens and a 2MP depth sensor. There is also an 8MP selfie camera at the front with support for HD video recording. In day-to-day scenarios, the smartphone should be able to take good photos. However, photos taken in the low-light might not look that great.

 

LG W31 Plus: Price To Specs Ratio

The LG W31 Plus retails for Rs. 11,990 and the device is priced competitively, considering that the W31 Plus offers 128GB storage by default. However, there are a lot of smartphones that have better chipsets, which offer better gaming performance. However, if storage is the main criterion, then pick the LG W31.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.

Camera

Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.

Battery

Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.

Display

The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.

Performance

This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
