We have been hearing about the LG G Vista and now Verizon has just made the smartphone official. But unfortunately the device will be a disappointment for those of you who thought that it would be a remarkable handset. But it will be just the right one for you if you were waiting for a decent budget Android handset.
Slightly larger than the 5.5-inch G3, the LG G Vista is a phablet which comes with a 5.7-inch qHD screen. Yes folks, it features a resolution of just 960×540. So that’s a screen as big as the one on the Galaxy Note 3, but the Samsung device boasts 4 times the resolution of the G Vista.
The LG G Vista is a pretty decent mid-range smartphone though featuring a 1.2GHz quad core processor (probably Snapdragon 400), 1.5GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (supports microSD cards), Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi a/b/g/n and a 3200 mAh Li-Ion battery. It also comes with rear controls like the LG G3, but no Laser Auto Focus or dual LED flash. With the LG G Vista, you get an 8MP cam with single LED flash and a 1.3MP front cam.
The device runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and tools like QuickMemo, QSlide 2.0, Knock Code, Multi View and Mini View will be available to you. The handset will support Big Red’s XLTE network, but it is Non Global Ready.
If you are interested in getting the new LG G Vista, you can get it for $99.99 with 2 year contract or for $399.99 without any strings attached.
