The LG Magna is an android device that was released in May 2015. It runs on android version 5 which is upgradable to version 6.

In this article is the average price of Magna and a full specifications list. A short but usefull review is also at hand to help you make the decision if this is the right choice for you.

We will start off with the disappointments first. The battery size is a little bit small for my liking. Phones should really be shipping with more than 3000mAh battery.

But that is not the case with the LG Magna. It has a minuscule 2540mAh of battery. Under normal usage, this will not last you a full day.

The battery is however, removable and you can change to another in case you run out of charge in the middle of the day.

The Current Price in Kenya of Lg Magna is Kshs. 15,000.

The camera

The LG magna camera is also disappointing. It has a primary camera of 8MP and the secondatry on is 5MP. I have found that only Microsoft Lumias and iPhone can have such low number of megapixels and still produce nice photos.

So if you are a person who likes taking selfies and photos, you should consider other Lenovo phones.

The good thing about this phone is that it is 4G capable so browsing will be a walk in the park. Though you will use a lot of data since the speeds are just over the roof. The phone sim is also dual so you can have those two providers on each of the sim slots.
