LG first launched its X-series line of phones sometime during last year in 2016, and it’s been continuing to roll new models out post this. The latest in this line-up is the AT&T-exclusive X venture, which, as you might be able to tell from its name, is a rather rugged device compared to others. AT&T calls it ‘stylishly resilient’.
The X venture teeters the line between budget and mid-ranger. Featuring a 5.2″ 1080p display, a Snapdragon 435 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage with microSD expansion, a 16MP rear camera, a 5MP wide-angel front-facer along with a massive 4100mAh battery, which has a ‘quick charging battery feature’ allowing it to charge from 0 to 100% in less than two hours. It also comes with a fingerprint sensor.
On outside, the physical home, back, and recent keys presumably allow for easier use with gloves or in the wet, and the soft-touch back looks like it’ll provide better grip. The MIL-STD 810G and IP68 certifications back the tough exterior up and assures you about the sturdiness.
The X venture will be available for purchase starting on May 26th at a rate of $11 per month for 30 months for the users who wish to opt this one on a contract, which adds up to $330 in total if calculated up-front. For that money, you’ll almost certainly be able to find a phone with better performance, but if you really need that rugged exterior, this may be the phone for you.
