LG G Pro Lite, LG Optimus L7 II Dual SIM, and LG Optimus L5 II Philippines 2014 New Year Price Discount Promo and Sale!

Korean Giant LG Electronics will be running a New Year Price Discount Promo on three of its upper midrange Android smartphones in the Philippines from now until February 28, 2014. So if you're looking for a reliable, powerful, yet budget-friendly handset from an international manufacturer, you might want to check it out and take advantage of this generous offer.


Included in the promo is the LG G Pro Lite dual-SIM phablet, which supports a stylus and flaunts a 5.5-inch 540 x 960 pixels IPS display for more compelling visuals complemented by an HD video recorder and an 8 MegaPixel still camera with backside illuminated sensor for sharper images even in low-light conditions. You get an extended uptime - thanks to the smartphone-tablet-hybrid's massive 3,140 mAh Li-Ion battery pack (which, I think, is its strongest feature) giving users roughly 14 hours of uptime with mixed usage - and the audio quality is enriched by the phone's built-in dual speaker. This device - which runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS with its Dual Core 1 GHz ARM Cortex A9 based MediaTek MT6577 SoC, handles multitasking with 1 GB of RAM, and has 8 GB of internal storage that's expandable via microSD card slot - is now available for only Php 13,990 from its regular price of Php 15,990.

So what do I love most about these three devices that are on sale? Well, as I've said, I really like their large battery packs. Short uptime is one of the biggest weaknesses of most Android phones from the get go and clearly, LG tried to address that by giving these phones unusually large batteries. I mean, 2,460 mAh pack powering a 4.3-inch handset?! I dunno about you, but I think that's already a lot. Oh, and it also doesn't hurt that these phones look very attractive.
