We’ve been asking for longer lasting smartphones for years, and finally manufacturers in the US are answering the call.
Sprint and Boost Mobile added a brand new and ultra powerful new smartphone to their lineups, the LG X power. The X power smartphone gets its name from its massive 4100mAh battery which was made to keep up with your busy lifestyle. It has a ridiculous talk time of 33 hours, a solid 8MP rear camera, 5.3″ HD display, 1.8GHz processor, 16GB memory expandable up to 128GB, 2GB RAM, and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
What makes the LG X power an even more impressive phone is the unlocked price of just $129.99. It’s available at Boost Mobile now, and September 23rd for Sprint customers who can choose to pay $9 a month for 24 months instead of paying for it all up front. Keep in mind choosing to pay for the X power over 24 months will cost $216 after all payments are made.
Boost Mobile is a subsidiary of Sprint and offers an alternative to the major cell carriers in the US. It uses the same network as Sprint, but offers more affordable plans like its Unlimited Unhook’d plan for just $50 a month.
For your money you get unlimited text, minutes and LTE data, with optimized streaming for videos (480p), gaming and music which is similar to T-Mobile‘s unlimited video and music streaming plans. Better yet, if you set up your prepaid monthly plan to auto-renew every month you’ll save $5 off your primary line. You won’t get locked into two year service contracts or long term financing plans too.
Sprint also now offers an Unlimited Freedom plan for its customers and it includes:
Unlimited talk, text and optimized streaming video, gaming and music
Unlimited nationwide 4G LTE data for most everything else
Just $60 a month for one line
$40 a month for a second line
$30 a month each for lines 3-10
Or for customers who don’t want their videos “optimized” for mobile use over LTE, can opt for the Unlimited Freedom Premium plan for $80 a month. Users who opt for the premium plan can stream unlimited video at 1080p resolution and music up to 1.5mbps.
