Softly curved display
A small extravagance but afford the Magna, but they must already pay careful attention to detect the slightly curved screen as such. The swing is not as pronounced as at the LG G Flex 2. The 5-inch display is a correct impression. The resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels ensures a sharp image with at least 295 ppi. Compared to the smaller brothers LG spirit and LG Leon, the display is crisp, the colors are richer, the contrast higher. The brightness is okay, but not strong enough to defy outdoors the Sun.
Equipment and battery
When operating system Android 5.0.1 lollipop used the LG largely intact can be. Bluetooth in the version 4 and Wi-Fi b/g/n the normal motion and light sensors joined. Even an FM radio is on board.

Memory, speed and processor: killjoy
Share the calculations a quad-core processor (mediatek MT6582) with up to 1.3 ghz and a Mali-400 MP graphics unit. The same architecture works well in the LG spirit.

For gamers, the LG Magna emits no good playmates. The benchmark Antutu v5. 1 7 reinforces the impression and certifies a decent overall performance, but a poor graphic calculation. Anyway, benchmarks are not really the thing of the Magna. In the Geekbench 3 remains the Magna with 1,192 points even behind an old Samsung Galaxy S3.

Operation: knock, knock…
Via double tap on the display, the Magna wakes up. LG calls the knockcode a very practical feature, you can still continue to set up in the settings. At all the operation of Android-5 surface remains a little mystery. During Setup, you determine whether the virtual keys are on a black or white background and whether the back button is placed left or right. The Magna with 5 inches for one-hand operation is too large, then tweak it and move about the virtual keyboard on the edge (see Photo Gallery).
Conclusion: LG Magna
