Yesterday we brought you word about US Cellular’s new affordable Android 7.0 Nougat handset, the LG K8 2017.
But if you don’t like the carrier’s offering, then you should know you can look for an alternative with Cricket Wireless. The pre-paid carrier is currently offering the LG Fortune for only $89.99 with the activation of a smartphone plan.
For this amount of money, you’ll receive a device with really low-end specs, so if you were hoping for more prepare to be gravely disappointed. The phone has a 5-inch display with 480 x 854 resolution and a (unidentified) quad-core CPU clocked at 1.1GHz. It features 16GB of internal storage with the possibility of expanding it to 32GB via the microSD cardslot.
The LG Fortune also takes advantage of a 5MP/5MP camera duo, a 2,500 mAh battery and Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
The phone can be paired with Cricket’s 3GB, 8GB or 12GB high-speed data plans. For those who feel they need more, the carrier is also offering an Unlimited data plan for $55 a month. (customers who agree to sign up for Auto Pay will receive a $5 discount). The unlimited data bundle includes streaming video at 480 and a 22GB data cap..
Now if you want a phone that features slightly better specs like a 720p display and a Snapdragon 425, maybe you should consider getting the LG K8 2017 from US Cellular instead. The handset is actually a bit cheaper.
