52mm

62.2mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.height

112mm

119.1mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.has a physical QWERTY keyboard
LG Cosmos 3
LG Lucid 4G
Text messaging is much faster due to a hardware keyboard.

Display

1.pixel density

200ppi

233ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

240 x 320px

480 x 800px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
3.screen size

A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
4.has a built-in HDR mode
LG Cosmos 3
LG Lucid 4G
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
5.has a flash
LG Cosmos 3
LG Lucid 4G
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
