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.


Folks who want to get the LG X Venture unlocked can purchase it from Amazon - US warranty is included, and the handset is compatible with all relevant carriers.

iPhonearena gives this phone a decent phone for $299. Yet it has a 5.2" 1080 full HD display, a massive 4100 mha battery with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable storage. The iPhone 8 has 2 GB of RAM with 64 gb of non expandable storage, a 750p 4.7" HD display for $699. What's the matter iPhonearena? Are you afraid to give this smartphone a score? How close would the score be to the 9.2 score you gave the iPhone 8?

Get an LG X Venture and an iPhone 8. Compare their speed when it comes to browsing, gaming, multiple app usage, and so on. Reply back. Thanks.

Why are u so much into specifications? If I give you two options, a car with 4 wheels and a car with 6 wheels. Would you choose the one with 6 wheels because u feel that the extra 2 wheels will make it faster?

You really can't directly compare an offroad SUV to a city SUV. Just like phones, they have priority features.

If you indeed knew, then they'll be no point for you to say "a car with 4 wheels and a car with 6 wheels. Would you choose the one with 6 wheels because u feel that the extra 2 wheels will make it faster?" The car with 6 wheels will have better grip and stability on the ground... Do some trucks not have 12 wheels? 6 wheels grouped in pairs of two at each side.
