LG G Vista 2 : Stellar Price, Mediocre Specs

Last month, American mobile carrier AT&T promoted LG G Vista 2 with vague info about pricing and availability.  However, that comes to an end as it finally announced the smartphone is already available at a hefty price of $449 (unlocked).  While the LG fans may go for it, there’s a great possibility that other consumers may be taken aback by weighing in the price vs. the specs.

Nothing’s too stellar about the 5.7-inch handset with FHD screen resolution.  Yes, it has an octacore processor set inside the Snapdragon 617 chipset, Android Lollipop OS and decent 2GB RAM. But the internal storage bears 16GB local storage and only offers a limited 32GB extension.  Compared to other midrangers with relatively lower price tags, the 450-buck tag price is an exaggeration.


Honestly, the only thing that may excite you here is the fashionable stylus that comes together with this handset.  If you’re a picture enthusiast, G Vista is equipped its dual snappers with various features that can enhance your picture-taking experience.  Oh, and we forgot the LG-specific features like Knock ON, Knock Code, quick Memo and QSlide that can make your interaction with your handset easier and more comfortable.


Back to AT&T, you may also get the mobile under a two-year contract for $49.99 per month.  It is also available under installment plans that may cost you $14.97 per month within 30 months (Next 24 Plan); $18.71 per month for 24 months (Next 18 Plan); $22.45 per month for 12 months (Next 12 Plan)
