Back in March we reported that Verizon Wireless will be adding the LG Optimus Exceed 2 Android smartphone to its prepaid portfolio. What we had missing at that time it was when it would happen. Now we know, and it’s today. We also weren’t sure about the price so here is the update for you. If you grab the Optimus Exceed 2 with one of Verizon’s prepaid plans, it will set you back $79.99. Another option is to buy the device without any commitment at full retail price, in which case you will have to pay $249.99.
LG Optimus Exceed 2 for Verizon Prepaid
A successor to the LG Exceed released in 2012, the LG Optimus Exceed 2 for Verizon prepaid is actually a rebranded LG L70 which was last week launched on Metro PCS network. Compared to its predecessor, the Optimus Exceed 2 is a tad bigger. The phone measures 5.00 x 2.63 x 0.38 inches and has a 4.5-inch display with 480 x 800 resolution. Inside the handset you will find a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory. LG was aware that it might not be enough, so they also included microSD slot compatible with up to 32 GB cards.
As far as connectivity is concerned, the Exceed 2 offers 3G data, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS navigation, and Wi-Fi connectivity. The phone is equipped with a 5-megapixel camera /camcorder with various shooting options such as Cheese Shutter, Live Shot, Live Effect and more. Other features include 2,100 mAh battery which is good for up to 12 hours of usage time or up to 18 days of standby time, as well as a smart LED around the Home button which uses different colors to indicate different types of notifications.
The LG Optimus Exceed 2 ships with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and pre-loaded with the usual Google and Verizon apps as well as LG-exclusive services. Knock Code lets you design your won tapping pattern to wake and unlock the phone. KnockON will put your phone to sleep and wake it with just a double tap. QSlide and QuickMemo are also included. If you happen to share your phone with other users, you will like the Guest Mode which allows you to decide which apps can be accessed by them and which will remain hidden.
