LG X Power with 4100 mAh battery launches in the US this month (on Cricket)

LG X Power with 4100 mAh battery launches in the US this month (on Cricket)
Last month, when LG released its X Power smartphone in Canada, we assumed that the handset would also land in the US at some point. Today, we know for certain that it will: Cricket Wireless just announced that it's going to launch the LG X Power on August 26.

Cricket customers will be able to buy the new device for $159.99 plus tax (no contract required, but you have to activate a smartphone plan). The X Power is one of the most interesting affordable LG handsets we've seen lately, as it packs a very generous 4,100 mAh battery with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0. According to LG, this battery can provide up to 2 full days of usage time - we hope we'll be able to test this claim soon.

The LG X Power runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, and sports a 5.3-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels (not great in terms of sharpness, but it should still do a decent job, especially considering the phone's accessible price). The new handset is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, further offering LTE connectivity, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable storage space. There's a 5 MP camera on the front, and an 8 MP one with LED flash on the back.

For a limited time, if you bring your number to Cricket, you could purchase the LG X Power for just $129.99 plus tax. Interested?

Yet Samsung can only fit a 3500Mah battery in a phone that has a 5.7 inch screen.

I'm afraid you're right. In this day and age, 5,000 mAh should be a standard.

Why use the S210 when the 410 is more powerful? Dumb move.

To support the claim that it can last 2 full days of usage, with the stronger chipset it may last a day and a half

Lol. The 410 can do that too? And it's a 720p screen, look how Sony said something like that with their phones.

I hope so too. If they can do it for some old run of the mill phone I don't see why they can't for their flagship especially when battery life was one of the top lacking strengths of the V10.

Carrier exclusive phones are kind of annoying but not bad.

This trend of budget phone coming with a huge battery and flagships having tiny batteries is disturbing to say the least..
