Our Take on the phones:

While LG has been struggling to maintain its share in the already crowded market, bringing out a phone with dual-rear camera and another one with a secondary display gives it a good push for launching a device which can stand out in the crowd. If the smartphones are priced right, people looking for something different in their devices will surely opt for the LG X cam and LG X screen.
