The LG Class is a handset we like, but also see it as a tough sell. It was LG's first foray into metal build materials and it is undoubtedly a looker, but its specs and more importantly price left us with doubts. Either way, the smart LG Class is now landing in Europe, where it was be known as the LG Zero.Unfortunate name aside, the LG Zero is very good looking indeed, certainly one of the sexiest handsets with mid-range price. Its specs are a little watered down besides quality handsets that are now making the $300-$400 space so interesting. The Zero gets a 5-inch screen with a 720p resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 412, 2GB of RAM, LTE connectivity, NFC, Bluetooth 4.1, 16GB of internal storage, a micro SD card slot, 2050 mAh battery, 13 megapixel rear camera, and an 8 megapixel front facing lens. In Europe, the LG Zero will cost around 300 euros, while the handset is also reportedly going to launch with AT&T in the United States. Of course, most causal smartphone consumers may choose looks over specs, and in that regard the LG Zero may find an audience. However, these days the LG G3 is similarly priced in Europe and that looks great too (although it?s plastic), and has vastly better flagship baiting specs that made it a true hero device when it launched last year. We'll let you decide... Zero or hero?
