Both LG G Pro Lite and HTC Desire 500 are currently available in the market for around Rs 19,500. However, there are many differences in the two handsets.
Here thus we have compared the two phones on the basis of their features which would give you a decent ideal about their worthiness. However, do note actual performance may differ.
Design and Display:
HTC Desire 500 is 9.9 mm thick and weighs 123 grams. The LG G Pro Lite though is slimmer (9.48 mm) than the former, it weighs 161 grams. But before you jump to conclusion mind this – the LG G Pro Lite has a huge 5.5 inch display and a mammoth 3140 mAh battery as compared to 4.3 inch display and 1800 mAh battery of Desire 500. Considering these facts, LG must be commended for keeping the weight of G Pro Lite so low.
However, the G Pro Lite’s display has only qHD (540×960 pixels) resolution which means it has only 200.26 ppi pixel density. On the other hand, the HTC Desire 500’s 4.3 inch display has 480×800 pixels resolutions – which means it has marginally better 216 ppi pixel density.
HTC Desire 500 has an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 1.6 megapixel front camera. There is an LED flash in the back panel as well for low light photography. The rear camera of Desire 500 comes with BSI sensor and HTC Image chip and is said to be able to capture HD videos.
The LG G Pro Lite too has an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 1.3 megapixel front camera. It too has BSI sensor and is said to be able to capture HD videos.
Storage & performance:
The LG G Pro Lite looks much better than the Desire 500 with its 8 GB internal memory (4.8 user available) as the other one has only 4 GB ROM of which around 2 GB is expected to be available for users. However, the HTC Desire 500 has 64 GB micro SD card slot against 32 GB expandable storage slot of the LG smartphone.
Both the handsets though come with 1 GB RAM, the HTC Desire 500 is expected to deliver a much faster performance with its 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor than the G Pro Lite which comes with a 1 GHz dual core MT6577 processor.
The LG G Pro Lite has a huge 3140 mAh battery but it also has a huge 5.5 inch display. Thus the battery back up of G Pro Lite would be like that of HTC Desire 500 whose 1800 mAh battery seems enough for its 4.3 inch screen.
Officially, HTC claims 12 hours of talktime and 435 hours of standby on 3G network. LG G Pro Lite said to provide 14 hours and 30 minutes of talktime and 845 hours of standby.
Both the smartphones come with dual SIM facility and have usual connectivity features like Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, 3.5 mm jack, DLNA, and micro USB. However, LG G Pro Lite has an additional FM radio feature.
The LG G Pro Lite is big, has better internal memory, and additional FM radio. The HTC Desire 500 on the other hand has a quad core processor, huge 64 GB expandable storage slot but has a 4.3 inch display.
