LG Fiesta is available in two version, the LG Fiesta L63BL and L64VL where both has the same features and specification with the difference on the network it uses, one use CDMA (L64VL) and the other use GSM (L63BL). Both phones considered as big phones, with its 5.5 inches screen and it comes with reasonable price.

  • 5.5 inches (720 x 1280 pixels) TFT LCD Display
  • 1.4 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8917

Design

As it said before, these phones considered as big size phone. The bar form factor design is nothing too special since most smartphone this day was designed that way.

The total size is 6.09” x 3.07” x 0.33” and weight at 5.77 ounces. Its size makes it not too comfortable to use with one hand, especially for those with small hand.

Display

The 5.5 TFT LCD screen is a huge screen to play around. Unfortunately, the resolution is only 1280 x 720 pixels or only HD resolution. For simple and daily use, it won’t make any difference compared to another phone with the same screen size that uses Full HD resolution, but when it comes to playing games and watching video, the difference is so obvious.

Software

LG Fiesta is using the latest Android operating system version, Android Nougat 7.0. Being the latest Android version this time, it means that it carry major improvement in the appearance, performance and security area.

But LG didn’t content on using Android OS only. They also add special UI for this phone, using LG UX 5.0 which gives the phone different appearance compared to another phone that only uses Android.

Camera

The LG Fiesta’s camera is 5 MP for front camera and 13 MP for the rear camera. It also comes with autofocus, various camera modes and also flash. Both cameras able to capture a good picture with more detail on the images thanks to more resolution on it. But unfortunately it still unable to produce the same result in the low light condition.

As for the video recording, it can take 1920 x 1080 pixels or full HD resolution that stays stable on 30 fps and that is really something nice to have.

Performance

Overall the phone’s internal specification is good enough. It uses Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8917 1.4 GHz Quad Core and 1.5 GB. It means that it will have no problem running most app and games. The 16 GB internal storage (only 9.83 GB that is usable) is also big enough to store lots of files. If that is not enough, people can add MicroSD on it and store another 2 TB data on it.

Connectivity

Just like most smartphone this day, LG Fiesta also supports 4G LTE for faster internet connection. This is something that is expected by many people who already used to using the 4G connection.

Another connection option that is available in this phone is microUSB, Bluetooth, WI-Fi, and GPS. One more thing, LG Fiesta is using Nano SIM so better be ready for it.

Battery

LG Fiesta is using non-removable 4500 mAh lithium ion battery. LG claimed that it will help the phone to stay up to 22 hours talk time and 29 days standby time.

The non-removable part means that if there is a problem with the battery, people can’t just replace it with a new one. They have to replace the whole phone and that is a minus part of this phone.

Wrap-up

Overall everything about LG Fiesta seems promising. It may take a while to get used to with its big screen size but that shouldn’t be a problem. With that kind of specification and pretty decent price, LG Fiesta is surely an attractive option especially for TracFone customer that wants to upgrade from an older phone.
