Powered by Android 4.4.2 KiKat, the G Vista is a bigger, yet stripped-down, option for customers who want to spend less than flagship prices on a device. Not that this one is any slouch, mind you; there's still plenty of hardware to satisfy most.
For starters, the phone has a 5.7-inch 720p HD display and 8-megapixel camera (with laser focus). To keep things humming along, there's the 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and a 3,200mAh battery. In terms of storage, the handset packs 8GB internally with microSD expansion for up to 32GB.
Like other recent LG smartphones, the G Vista comes with custom software touches such as KnockCode and KnockOn. What's more, Dual Window lets users take advantage of that large screen by splitting the display into two panels.
The LG G Vista will be available for $49.99 with a two-year service agreement starting August 22 -- that's $50 less than rival Verizon. Alternatively, AT&T's Next plans will spread out payments over the term of the contract: you can drop $14.80 per month on Next18 or $17.75 per month on Next12; both result in a total cost of $355.
