You don't have to be a plebeian to appreciate the LG Realm, but if you're counting your ducats, the handset's $80 off-contract price at Boost may put a glint in your eye.
The Realm is fairly compact by modern Android terms, with a 4.5-inch screen. The rest of its hardware features are decidedly entry-level, but the Android 4.4 KitKat software is bang up to date.
You're looking at a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 5-megapixel camera and a pathetic 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera. A 2,100mAh battery promises up to 17 hours of talk time. There's only 4GB of internal storage, and 1GB of RAM to go with it.
The Realm also has HD Voice, a carryover from its Sprint parent.
As always, we'll test it out just as soon as we can.
