LG launched a couple of entry-level Android smartphones earlier this week, such as the X300 and Aristo. The former has been introduced in South Korea, while the latter made its way to the United States via MetroPCS and T-Mobile.

If we are to compare the two devices, they are almost the same aside from the fact that the LG X300 packs 2GB RAM and the LG Aristo comes with only 1.5GB RAM inside.
