LG Aristo 5 – Hands On! (Metro by T-Mobile)

by birtanpublished on November 20, 2020

What's going on everyone this is kevin here coming at you with my hands-on and first impressions video of the lg aristo 5 so let's get started so this is the lg aristo 5 one of the latest budget devices being offered by metro by t-mobile and t-mobile now i've got to say just starting off the video here this phone is a lower end device it does feature an msrp of 159.99 now i personally would not pay over 100 bucks for this phone in fact i'd imagine that most people that do get

It likely would be getting it because it is being offered either for free or for a very good promo price so definitely make sure to go over to your local carrier store to see what deals they're offering on it as i'm sure you can snag it for a very good discount but with all that said let's take a look at everything that is included here in the box now i did already set up the phone for the sake of saving time so we'll put that off to the side also you can see a risto 5 branding on the

Box itself but we'll put the phone off to the side for a second and we'll see what else we get so we do have an aristo 5 quick start guide i can get it out of here there we go oops so aristo 5 quick start guide we have a micro usb cable for charging and data transfer so yes unfortunately this phone does feature a micro usb port on the bottom now for some people that might actually be a good thing if you have a bunch of micro usb

Ports already it just depends but i prefer usbc we also have an lg wall adapter and this wall adapter is 10 watts so pretty decent there and here is the actual lg aristo 5 itself now this phone is technically the successor to the lg aristo 4 plus which was launched about a year ago and to my understanding this phone is a really big improvement because the lg aristo 4 plus really wasn't that great now if you have one right now and you

Like it then just know that the aristo 5 will be a very big improvement then so that's definitely something to be excited about now the lg aristo 5 features a 5.7 inch display the display itself is lcd at 720p we're getting a ppi of 295 and a 19×9 aspect ratio so certainly compared to many of the other devices that i've covered recently here on the channel and also many of the other phones that have made their way over to metro the display on this one is a little bit

Smaller than what we're used to but at the same time that might be good if you are someone that does want a phone that's maybe a little bit easier to hold and use and also easier to put in your pocket it just depends on your personal preferences now the display itself looks pretty good to me now even though it is 720p things do look decently crisp and clear so that's definitely awesome now up top here we do have a notch for the front facing camera and the camera itself is 5 megapixels

Now internally here with the aristo 5 we're getting 32 gigabytes of storage with micro sd card expansion up to an additional 32 gigs so that's pretty decent as well there's no wireless charging here with the phone but we do get a fingerprint sensor on the back so we'll give that a try right now and that's a pretty fast fingerprint sensor there is no face unlock with the phone unfortunately so beyond using a pin code you are limited to just using the fingerprint sensor

Now also on the back side of the phone we do have a dual camera setup with a 13 megapixel main camera and a 5 megapixel ultra wide angle camera so the main camera is great for day-to-day photos but the ultra wide really does come in handy if you want to take photos of your surroundings for example or to change things up a little bit now we do get portrait mode with the front and rear cameras on this device which is a great thing to see but here it is through the viewfinder

This is with the front-facing camera of course and then we can switch over to portrait mode and you get those nice blurred out backgrounds so it is cool that we do get all these various features with this device despite it being a very entry-level phone then we can flip around to the rear camera and then we get portrait mode of course we get the standard photo mode and then we get the ultra wide angle camera which you can see

Allows us to fit a lot more content into the frame here now internally with the lg aristo 5 we're getting two gigabytes of ram and the mediatek helio p22 now neither of those two specifications are necessarily that impressive but the phone does seem to be nicely optimized and does perform decently well now compared to a mid-range device or especially a flagship this will be significantly slower but everything does work which is a good thing now of course

I'm gonna have to use the phone a bit more before i know for sure for the final review video but for now i'm pretty satisfied so far now i did run a benchmark test here with the phone and i'll show you the scores from that right now but i got a single core score of 137 and a multi-core score of 486. so what i recommend doing is installing geekbench 5 on your current device and then comparing the scores from that phone to this phone to see if this phone really will be giving you a performance

Upgrade now video recording with the lg aristo 5 maxes out at 1080p with the phone we're getting a pretty large 3000 milliamp hour internal battery which is pretty impressive and the software on here is android 10 with lg's skin laid over it so again i'm pretty impressed so far with the software experience things do seem to be running well and in general it seems like the helio p22 and two gigs of ram does a decent job at keeping up with things

But now that we've gone over the main specifications for the lg aristo 5 let's take a closer look at the hardware it's already talked quite a bit about the front panel here but we are getting a water drop notch at the top and then we are getting kind of a thicker bottom bezel but in general i do think it's a pretty decent looking phone now taking a look at the left side of the phone with the volume up volume down we have the google assistant button which i feel is pretty pointless personally

And we have the slot for the micro sd card and sim card then on the right side of the phone we have the power button then up top we have the noise cancelling microphone and then on the bottom we have the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack microphone micro usb port for charging and data transfer and we have the speaker and then on the back side of the phone we have the camera module and the fingerprint sensor and you can see looking at the build of the phone it is one giant plastic piece on the

Sides and back but the phone itself does feel pretty sturdy and solid so i really don't have any complaints when it comes to the build quality but in general the lg aristo 5 looks like a pretty interesting phone here from metro but in general it seems like the aristo 5 is definitely a solid successor to the previous lg aristo 4 plus and i'm really curious to know what everyone thinks about it and again like i mentioned at the beginning of the video the msrp of 159.99 is

Certainly very overpriced but again no one's going to be paying that much for the phone the majority of people out there are going to be probably getting this phone for free with a port in deal or they're going to be getting the phone for a very significant discount and for me personally i don't think i would buy this for any more than 100 but i hope you enjoyed this video about the lg aristo 5. if you have any specific requests beyond the review let me know in the comment section below but this is kevin here and i will see

You in the next video
