Yeah. A little underwhelming really.

The title should be ‘2 mid range and 2 low end phones’ after looking at those specs?

No Nick.
None of the phones have enough RAM, on board storage, or powerful enough CPU to warrant being called ‘mid range’

The title should be:
LG announces four new entry level phones ahead of MWC

I personally think 1GB of ram is sufficient, although I think 1.5GB is the sweet spot. 2GB is overkill and would jack up the price of a mid range phone.
