LG X Power is Coming to the US via Cricket Wireless

LG released its latest LG X Power smartphone in Canada last month where it gained a lot of attention for its long-lasting battery. Ever since then, people have been looking forward to the day that the smartphone will reach the US shores as well. The waiting has come to a close earlier today as LG announced that the X Power smartphone will be coming to Cricket Wireless on August 26.

With the X Power's launch, smartphone users will be able to enjoy the LG smartphone best known for its powerful 4,100 mAh battery; which is said to last up to two full days of use. The battery also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology, making it a suitable option for those who use their devices extensively.

Apart from its massive battery, the LG X Power is equipped with a 5.3-inch IPS display with 720x1280 resolution. It is powered by a 1.3GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor with 1.5GB of RAM and on board storage of 16GB. The device has an 8-megapixel camera on the back with LED flash and a secondary 5-megapixel camera in front. Upon release, the device runs on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.

The LG X Power can be purchases from Cricket Wireless for $159.99 plus tax. A contract is not required to purchase the device but a smartphone plan needs to be activated. Along with its nearing launch, Cricket is having a promotion for those who plan to port their number to them. Instead of $159.99, you only need to shell out $129.99 plus tax. Cricket's no annual contract, unlimited text and talk plus data access plans start at $35/month after a $5/month auto pay price deduction. Monthly taxes and fees are included.

  1. I expect better RAM, storage and processing power for that price point.

    With Black Friday approaching, there's no excuse for overpriced electronics.

    Intetested buyers might as well wait it out for a potential $100 price cut.

  3. Nice battery, how much does this phone weigh considering it's larger than normal battery capacity.

    1. 139 g/4.90 oz which isn't any more than some 5.2" screen phones with smaller batteries.

  4. Besides the iPhone SE, is anyone actually making sub 5" phones anymore? These things are unpocketable twohanders!

    1. Nah, they are just fine. FAR better than sub 5" phones that are too tiny to use.

    2. Two days of battery? I'd give it two stars out of 5, compared to the vast majority of phones that intentionally ship with bad batteries that hardly last at all.

      There's no reason we can't have 5-day batteries, other than design failure such as "make the phone too thin".

    3. There are plenty of 4"-4.5" Android phones, but most of them are pretty low-end. On Cricket, the HTC Spree and Desire 520, the Alcatel Streak, the 2015 Moto E, and the Samsung Galaxy Amp 2 are all ~4.5". The 4.6" Sony Z5 Compact is probably the closest to a high-end Android phone under 5".

    4. 5" phones are the new normal.

      They're a lot better than squinting at a tiny screen.

      Eventually, wearables will follow suit and become those futuristic touch screen arm bands you saw in ye olde sci fi movies.

      After that, it'll be the age of enhanced reality visors/glasses that respond to voice commands and possibly track your hand movements.

      The future is now, thanks to science.

  6. I really hope TMobile gets this phone 5.3 inch screen with a 4100 milliamp battery and I'm definitely an LG person it sounds like one of the best budget phones ever
