    Looking to get hold of a budget smartphone from a big name? The LG K Series offers a decent combination of affordability and function.

    Now in stock and ready to ship, these handsets have all seen a 2017 refresh compared to the last versions. There’s an expected specification bump for each model, alongside a slimming and refinement to the  cases.

    Each phone is pretty affordable, even the new K10 at £200. It’s no surprise then the phones are effectively entry level specification. Still. in 2017 that counts for a lot more than it used to and even the basic K4 has a modern fingerprint sensor.

    K4 is available at £119.99, K8 is £149.99 and the K10 will be £199.99.

    LG K4 (2017)

    This new iteration of the K4 (2017) focuses on getting the basics right. Core smartphone features are available to anyone who needs a simple and modern handset. The phone’s build is sleek but not overtly slim, retaining a textured, grippy back.

    A 5″ screen and 2,500 mAh battery round off respectable specifications and are suitable for browsing and watching videos through the day.

    The K4 model LG launched in 2016 was surprisingly popular, finding an audience of smartphone novices. The 2017 redesign should improve on this name, offering a half-inch increase in screen size and over 25% battery boost.
