Android smartphones are equipped with so many features nowadays, we need to make sure we are picking up the right phone with the desired features. There should be a proper balance between the phone price & features to get the best bang for your buck.
In this post, we are going to deal with LG K51. It’s a mid-range smartphone with basic smartphone features. Let’s see what it offers and where it falls behind the competition.
Let’s explore the LG K51 feature list in great detail –
Does LG K51 have IR Blaster/Infrared?
IR Blaster is not a feature you cannot live without. However, it can be quite useful to control all the home appliances from a single remote. With the infrared feature, we can control AC, Fan, Light, TV, etc using an Android remote control app.
Unfortunately, K51 is not equipped with an IR blaster.
Does the LG K51 have Fast Charging?
I first used fast charging on my LG Stylo 3 Plus. The Quick Charge technology charges your phone from 0-50% in around 30 minutes. Once you get used to Fast Charging it’s difficult to revert back to the regular charging speed.
Unfortunately, fast charging is offered in a segment higher than the K Series. All the LG Stylo phones have Quick Charge support. LG K51 lacks fast charging.
Does LG K51 have Wifi Calling?
All the K51 variants offer the Wi-Fi calling feature. On Boost K51, it may have a different name like Advanced Calling.
We can even prioritize wifi calling over a cellular network for calls.
Does LG K51 have 5G?
First of all, 5G was offered only on the flagship devices but now it’s getting more and more common. The first LG K series smartphone with 5G is K92. It’s only available for AT&T & Cricket as of now.
LG K51 lacks 5G support.
Does the LG K51 have Gorilla Glass?
None of the LG K51 variants are equipped with Gorilla Glass. Moreover, K51 has a 2.5D curved glass, which is more prone to damage even with a slight fall.
Make sure you always use your K51 with a Screen Guard and Case.
Does the LG K51 have a removable battery?
The last K Series smartphone with a removable (user replaceable) battery was LG K20 Plus. The current day smartphones have a unibody design with a non-removable battery.
K51 comes with a 4000 mAH battery that is non-removable.
Does the LG K51 have a flashlight?
The rear single LED flash on LG K51 doubles as Flashlight. There is no dedicated flashlight app on K51. We need to use the Flashlight shortcut in the navigation panel.
Does the LG K51 have expandable memory?
Yes, LG K51 does have a micro SD card slot on the right above the power button. It supports micro SD cards up to 256 GB.
Does the LG K51 have a SIM Card?
All the K51 variants have a SIM Card slot. The different K51 carriers are MetroPCS, T-Mobile, Verizon, Boost Mobile, Xfinity & Spectrum Mobile.
Does LG K51 have Screen Recording?
There is no native screen recording app on LG K51. There are multiple ways to capture a screenshot, but we need to resort on the 3rd party apps for screen recording.
You can even do a one-click recording with a screen recorder shortcut in the navigation panel.
Does the LG K51 have a Glass Back?
The back of the LG K51 feels like glass, but actually, it’s plastic with a glossy finish. It’s susceptible to scratches. It’s better to keep it protected with a case.
Does the LG K51 have Android 10?
LG K51 was first launched for Boost Mobile. The Boost K51 comes with an Android 9 operating system.
The rest of the K51 variants are running on Android 10 out of the box. You’ll get Android 10 with K51 MetroPCS lmk500mm, T-Mobile lmk500tm3, Xfinity Mobile lmk500qm5, Spectrum Mobile lmk500qm6, Verizon lmk500umt & Factory Unlocked lmk500qm7.
Does the LG K51 have a Stylus Pen?
The stylus pen is reserved for the LG Sylo series, which falls in a segment higher than the K Series.
LG K51 doesn’t offer Stylus or Pen support.
Does the LG K51 have a headphone Jack?
On many of the high-end USB-C devices, the charging port doubles as the headphone jack. Due to this, you fail to use earphones while charging.
Fortunately, LG K51 has a dedicated 3.5 mm Headphone Jack at the bottom.
Does the LG K51 have Hotspot/Tethering?
LG K51 offers both Mobile Hotspot & USB Tethering. Tethering is used to share mobile data with other devices via wired or wireless connection.
On K51, you can share can mobile data with up to 10 devices via Mobile Hotspot.
With USB Tethering you can share the internet connection with the connected PC.
Does the LG K51 have night mode?

Does LG K51 support OTG?
Yes, LG K51 does have USB OTG support. You can connect USB peripherals such as a pen drive, keyboard, mouse, etc. via a USB OTG adapter.
I’ve connected my Pen Drive via a USB OTG adapter.
I also connected a Logitech Mouse via the OTG adapter.

1 thought on “Does LG K51 have ir blaster, fast charging, Wifi calling, 5G, OTG?”
Disappointed because I picked the K51 simply because it didn’t come with a pen. Had the Stylo lacked a pen, I’d have a phone with an IR blaster rather than without.
