Not everyone is into large phones, but those who are usually love them. And it’s pretty understandable, since a device with a big screen offers far more possibilities for fun and productivity than a compact phone. Starting today, AT&T customers will have one more phablet to tickle their fancy – the LG G Vista. The handset is now available from carrier’s stores.
LG G Vista available on AT&T
Aside from specific network radios and custom apps, the LG G Vista for AT&T is basically the same device that was launched by Verizon last month. The only real difference users will notice (or rather their wallets will) is the price. AT&T is having the phone on sale for $49.99 which is exactly half of what Verizon is asking for the device. Obviously, we are talking about on-contract price here.
If you prefer installment plan, you can opt for AT&T Next 18 or Next 12 and pick up the Vista for $14.80 or $17.75 per month, respectively. The third option is to pay full retail price of $354.99 and enjoy your brand new phablet with no further commitments.
LG borrowed some features from their flagship LG G3, adding a touch of luxury to Vista’s mid-range specification. Like the G3, the G Vista has rear-mounted power button and volume rocker and its 8-megapixel camera offers the same laser AutoFocus. The phone ships with Android 4.4.2 KitKat and a bunch of LG-exclusive apps such as KnockCode and KnockOn.
The Vista packs a generous 5.7-inch HD IPS display at 258 ppi and is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor paired with 1.5 GB of RAM. A hefty 3,200 mAh battery keeps the lights on and there is a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera with Gesture Shutter. The device also sports 8 GB of internal memory and microSD support for up to 32 GB which you definitely need since the OS together with all pre-loaded apps takes up over half of built-in storage.
To sum up, the LG G Vista may not boast ground-breaking technology or the most powerful hardware, but it does come with a few cool features. More importantly, however, it is super affordable and it is something we always like to see, especially in combination with decent specs.
