I'd love to say that AT&T's new LG Phoenix 2 bursts with cutting-edge tech befitting its exciting name, but the reality is that we're looking at a relatively entry-level smartphone for AT&T's prepaid GoPhone brand.

Hey, at least it's affordable!

Here's what you get for $100:

  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow software
  • 5-inch screen (1,280x720-pixel resolution)
  • 8-megapixel rear camera
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 1.3GHz quad-core processor
  • 2,125mAh battery
  • 16GB internal storage, 1.5GB RAM
  • MicroSD card support (up to 32GB)
  • Color: Black

Wallet-watchers can pick up the prepaid phone online at AT&T's website immediately, or wait for May 14 to pick it up at "select" retail stores.

The phone makes its way to AT&T retail shops starting June 10.
