Metal-made LG Class launched in Europe as the LG Zero

Metal-made LG Class launched in Europe as the LG Zero
Announced and released in South Korea in September, the LG Class is now also available in Europe, but under a different name: LG Zero. At the moment, the LG Zero can be purchased only in Italy, but we assume that the handset will soon be launched in other markets.

Unlike most of LG's smartphones, the Zero / Class is made out of metal (aluminum). However, it's far from being a high-end smartphone, and this is obvious if we look at its 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, or at its quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor. The new smartphone runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, further featuring LTE connectivity, a 13 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front-facing camera, 16 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2050 mAh battery. While the LG Class that's sold in Korea has 2 GB of RAM, the LG Zero only comes with 1.5 GB. Customers in Italy can buy the new LG smartphone unlocked for €299 (about $320).

AT&T will reportedly release the LG Class in the US, but for now there's no official confirmation about this. Would you buy the new LG handset?

Overpriced. I don't see how anyone would get this over an unlocked G3 for the same price.

Here in Europe people get the Galaxy A5 over the Galaxy S5 for the same €350 pricetag. LG might have made a smart move, but Samsung has a good reputation whereas LG is known in my country as "the other Android manufacturer".

Not everyone is a phone nerd like us, they just want a phone that works, and also looks good, they don't even know what the specs mean.

Not at all, in the 3rd quarter this year the number of people with LG phones has grown in the U.S while other companies shrank

350$$ I would pay 40$ bugs more for a 64GB oneplus 2 or go for the even cheaper and better oneplus one for 300$(64 gb version)

I would get the Moto X play for $299. Which has a SD615, 1080p display, bigger battery and expandable storage that the Oneplus 2 doesn't have.

I still don't get why is that OEMs put 1.5GB of RAM on devices? Just put 2GB of RAM or just don't make such devices. This goes for Samsung, LG and Blu, I'm sure I missed some OEMs who are doing the same thing.
