Shortly after Easter, Cricket Wireless, the AT&T’s prepaid subsidiary, has expanded its affordable portfolio of Android phones by another handset. Well, perhaps not a completely new one. Being simply a Cricket-branded incarnation of the well-known LG K20, the LG Harmony provides its potential users with a package of quite decent specs for under-$100 price tag. If you are looking for a cheap and capable replacement phone, the LG Harmony should get on your radar.
Cricket began selling the LG Harmony. Right now this 5.3-inch Android phone with a fingerprint scanner is within your reach for $99.
T-Mobile’s and Verizon’s customers know the LG Harmony as the LG K20, whereas globally the phone is known as the LG K10. Right now this Android 7.0 Nougat smartphone ports to Cricket Wireless. For as little as $99 (including activation fees) you may buy the phone at the carrier’s online store and combine it with one of the data plans choosing among 3GB, 8GB, 12GB and unlimited ones.
Although the phone has been on the market for a while and there are tons of reviews about it, let’s pretend that it’s a new release and present its brief characteristic. Equipped with a 5.3-inch touch screen, the Harmony offers 720p of resolution display. Perhaps its sharpness isn’t particularly impressive, but even though it should deliver sufficient viewing experience.
Powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor clocked at 1.4GHz and paired with 1.5GB RAM, the smartphone should deliver smooth performance of the latest Android OS iteration it runs out of box. It’s worth noting that the Cricket-branded model comes with a bigger amount of RAM as the LG K20 hides only 1GB RAM. Kept alive by a 2,800 mAh battery the handset offers 16GB of expandable storage (the device accepts cards up to 2TB).
Speaking of optics, in the camera department the Harmony is offering its users a combination of an 8MP rear snapper (instead of a 13MP one found in the K20) and a 5MP selfie-oriented lens employing a feature called ‘selfie light’. Meanwhile, sporting a LED flash the primary camera is capable to record 1080p quality videos. Surprisingly enough, this lower-end smartphone hides a fingerprint scanner on the back – a feature still rare in this price sector.
Summing up, although the LG Harmony is nothing more than an entry-level offering, taking into account its pricing-to-specs ratio, it is a good alternative for all those who are looking for a capable prepaid phone that will be harmless to their pocket.
