Rugged LG X Venture launches on US Cellular - a decent phone for the adventurer in you
US Cellular is now selling a new rugged smartphone - the LG X Venture. First released in the US by AT&T, the X Venture currently runs Android 7 Nougat, and will likely be updated to Android 8 Oreo at some point (though LG has yet to confirm this).
Built around a metal frame, the LG X Venture is shock-resistant, as well as dust- and water-resistant (IP68-certified). This is not a high-end device, but it comes with pretty decent features, including a 16 MP rear camera, a 5 MP wide-angle front-facing camera, an octa-core Snapdragon 435 processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of expandable internal memory. As for the battery that the handset is packing, that's a very generous 4100 mAh unit with quick charging.
The LG X Venture sports a 5.2-inch 1080p display with Glove Mode - activated by double-pressing the QuickButton on the left of the phone, this allows you to operate the device with gloves on, even in wet environments. Said QuickButton can also be pressed to open a suite of outdoor-oriented apps, including barometer, compass, weather report, exercise tracker, and activity counter.
Interested customers can buy the X Venture from US Cellular for $299.99 outright, or $12 per month for 30 months. The phone is available to order online via the source link below.
