Review LG Max X155 smartphone
If it were not inflated price tag, I would have been the normal state employees from LG. A Max console in the device name suggests some thought – the maximum high price for the most stripped-down stuffing. If the goal is to acquire branded, not Chinese dvuhsimochny smartphone with 5-inch display and a good autonomy, the LG Max may be a good choice. Provided that the buyer will agree to pay a premium for the brand, and will not feel any need for large amounts of memory, a good camera, high performance and screen resolution.
