US Cellular is flaunting some new LG devices in its product lineup, specifically the LG X Power and the LG G Pad X II tablet. Both devices are right above the entry level market of devices, so this will not hurt your bank accounts as much as flagship devices will. But if you’re looking for devices that are affordable and will do your daily tasks, these might be good options.
The LG X Power smartphone was rumored to be launching with a MediaTek chipset, so it is surprising to see US Cellular say that it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset in the marketing material. The 1.3GHz speed of the quad-core processor would point to a Snapdragon 212 processor, supported by 1.5GB RAM and the advertised 16GB internal storage. If you have a microSD storage card, the phone will accept up to 2TB expansion. The battery is also a good highlight, at a beefy 4,100mAh. With just a 5.3-inch HD (720p) screen, that battery will be sure to last you a whole day and then some.
The LG G Pad X II is a 10.1-inch tablet with a WUXGA (1920×1200) resolution, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. The battery life for this midrange tablet is also worth considering, with its 6,000mAh battery. The tablet also comes with 4G LTE data connectivity.
The LG X Power will be available with US Cellular at USD$149.00 for prepaid, or with no down payment at a contract spread through 24 or 30 months. The LG G Pad X II is also available at USD$149.00 for a two-year contract, or you can choose to pay nothing and spread that cost over a number of months.
