After plenty of leaks, Verizon has finally dropped the LG G Vista officially. The 5.7″ inch behemoth is an unapologetically budget device with mid-range specs and a low resolution on that massive display. The phone costs $99 with a 2-year contract and matches the Galaxy Note 3 as the largest screen on Verizon’s network.
The phone runs Android 4.4.2 out of the box with LG’s skin from the G3 on board. You shouldn’t run into many problems with said skin as it has 1.5GB of RAM and a quad-core Snapdragon 400. It’s not a powerhouse by any means, but it’s definitely not too bad. The only really bad part about this device is the screen. At qHD (960×540), this 5.7″ inch screen has a pixel density under 200 ppi. Luckily though the phone pulls plenty of design cues from the G3 and a massive battery. At 3,200 mAh, you will easily get through a day if not more.
Included software features include Knock Code, QuickMemo, Laser Auto Focus, Mini View and more. Unfortunately though those features come at a cost, storage space. Of the included 8GB of internal storage, only a mere 3.7GB is usable. The LG G Vista is $399 off-contract and is available now. The full spec list is below.
