LG comes with a midrange smartphone called LG X Screen K500I which has a second screen on the top of the smartphone with many amazing features.
LG X Screen K500I is crafted very beautifully and it looks perfect with the glass finish on both the sides. The back panel is quite glossy. At first, it feels a little bit slippery but I got used to it. The back is not gorilla which means it tends to break easily. The back case is attracting a lot of finger prints as well and it is good to have a back cover. At the top comes the 1.76-inch secondary display.
The navigation buttons are on the display. Overall it is nice in hand. The LG X Screen K500I 5 feels comfortable in the hand. The sides are metal which provides protection. The phone looks very thin. It looks like a very premium phone at a very affordable price. The build quality of the device is good enough. Front there is a camera and the speaker grill on the top panel of the mobile. At the back, there is a primary camera with LED flash. The charging slot at the top.
The power and the hybrid sim card tray reside on the top left. Volume keys are conveniently located on the right at the back the panel is non-removable. Available in Black, White, Pink Gold colors.

And it can show particular message, some app shortcuts as well and it is customizable quite a lot. It will function even when your main display is locked.
The longer battery life is good but the charging time is a little bit longer. The device looks similar to the Samsung Galaxy S7. The device has one of the weakest speakers. The performance is also a little bit disappointing also. The device uses the snapdragon 410 which is really the best but not performing sufficient in this smartphone but however gets the job done. It also doesn’t have any protection glass like gorilla glass or at least a screen protector on the box.
The LG X Screen K500I 5 is able to play many games without issues. Despite the secondary screen, the battery gives sufficient life. The performance is decent in this smartphone and the Adreno 306 does perform well. The animations are all very nice. It also offers the best customization option. Which would be very frustrating. It is also provided with gesture mode.
LG X Screen K500I by the first impressions this look like a decent smartphone. It has an excellent performance. The LG design is very good and it got the headphone jack. The performance is outrageous. It is available at a price tag of Rs12, 900/- I would say you can buy this smartphone without any regret. And the pricing is also reasonably given.
