Consumer Cellular adds LG 930 and Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate to Android portfolio



Consumer Cellular announced on Tuesday that a pair of Android handsets have joined the carrier’s growing roster. As part of an expected larger rollout of smartphones, the LG 930 and Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate are two very different options for the no-contract AARP crowd.


The Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch display, and 5-megapixel camera. Priced at $150, the phone is more than enough to get your older family members started on Android.


The LG 930 runs $300 and features a more powerful experience with specs that include a 4.5-inch IPS HD display.  Additional details include Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

Outside of the standard fare of rate plans, Consumer Cellular also provides five “Connect!” data plans for smartphone users. Light usage plans offer 10MB of data with heavy usage defined as 1GB per month. Consumers can pick and choose data plans at any time, making changes without penalty.

  1. It is not the AARP crowd. It is the no contract and hell of a lot cheaper plans crowd. My husband and I are young and so pleased at the service, customer service, and price of Consumer Cellular.

  2. I am extremely disappointed in the LG 930. Battery life is so short that I hesitate to use it for anything but a phone. If I need to “google” something and there’s an iPad or computer available I will use that in order to conserve battery life for phone calls. The LG 930 is uncomfortable to use for more than a few minutes because it gets so hot when in use. The speaker function is worse than useless because it is no louder than the normal in-the-ear speaker but it makes the sound quality extremely staticky. Consumer Cellular is great if you want a basic cell phone. For any smart phone functions I seriously recommend another carrier/different phone.
