LG Optimus M+ launches at MetroPCS

The LG Optimus M+ has launched as yet another affordable smartphone option at MetroPCS. The handset, which features a 3.5-inch display, 800MHz CPU, and Android 2.3, comes in at an easy to swallow $129.99. Lacking is access to Metro’s new 4G LTE network, but also absent is the premium price associated with it. The Optimus M+ comes as the followup to MetroPCS’s first Android phone the LG Optimus M, which launched back in 2010. Head over to the source link below for all the details.

    Looks like a captivate, with worse specs.

    LG is the king of the entry level (well, at least in the US anyway). I can’t even tell you how many people I see on the streets with the Optimus M/V/T

    As much as Android fans like us hate it, there is a very big market for entry-level Android devices. Some are terrible while some are actually quite good.

      The Optimus line was actually pretty good for its time.  Not a powerhouse, but easily beefy enough to handle the kinds of tasks entry-level devices can be expected to undertake. Hell, it was better than my MyTouch 3G [shudder]!

      I am still waiting to see about their 4:3 screen format phone. That’s just so out of the ordinary, it’s bound to gain fans no matter what people say.

  • Jaswinder Singh

    It is only $129 with no contract. Cheap Cheap…not bad a kid or entry level users to Android OS

  • IronHorse01

  • oneloveonehate

    Yea i know its Android news, but this is one of the most boring types you guys know it too mean who is giving your the low quality info these days? Metro PCS is I bet

    Why is everyone mad cuz there is news on a low end phone. Some people can’t afford high end devices. To me that’s what makes android that much better than apple. They offer a wide range of devices that start from dirt cheap to crazy expensive. They are thinking about the majority of people who would love to have the technology in their hands but can’t afford it or have better use of their money rather than dishing out 300 some odd dollars on contract for a device. To me good thinking LG and any other companies that offer a wide range of devices and pricing.
