LG L70 Unboxing and First Impressions

 

LG L70 Unboxing Contents

The L70 is the middle child in LG’s midrange dual SIM line up, the L Series III. With a 4.5″ display, the L70 sits between the larger 5″ L80 and the smaller 3.5″ L40.

LG L70 Unboxing Front

The L70 strikes me as the kind you’d want as a main phone if you just want to bring something above a basic tiny 4 incher for texting and calling.

LG L70 Unboxing Back

The textured back is very grip friendly, and though the back plate is easily removed, it snug fits back so that the phone feels more solid and sturdy. Something your toddler can pick up and throw and you wouldn’t be worried. At least, that’s the impression.

Battery removed and dual SIM and microSD slots revealed. I reviewed the L Series II last year and the LG sturdy-build approach has been retained.
