AT&T launches trio of new smartphones ranging from Mini to Mega


AT&T is just having all the fun in the world today as they launch new smartphones. They actually launched four, but since the Moto X is deserving of its own post, we’ll just cover the other three for now. Today’s announcements cover a range of different screen sizes, ranging from 4.3-inches all the way to an insane 6.3-inches. So we’ll work from smallest to largest, starting with the HTC One Mini.

The One Mini is available on AT&T for $99.99 on-contract, or if you prefer not to have a contract, it’ll cost you $429.99. For a quickie specs recap, the One Mini features a 1.4GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 4.3-inch 720p Super LCD 2 display, 4MP Ultrapixel camera, 16GB storage, 1800mAh battery and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. A couple of other notable features include an aluminum body (like the HTC One) and the same front-facing BoomSound speakers found in the One. All said and done, this compact phone packs some nice specs that make it much more attractive than many of the smaller phones out there.

LG Optimus G Pro

Next up is the LG Optimus G Pro, a 5.5-inch phablet that sells for $99.99 on-contract and $439.99 off-contract. Specs include a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, microSD card slot, 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display, 13MP camera, 3140mAh battery and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. For a phablet, the Optimus G Pro comes in at a very attractive price. On the other hand, the software is a bit behind the times, and LG doesn’t have a great record when it comes to software updates. But some of the specs are very tempting at $99.

Purchase: AT&T


Samsung Galaxy Mega

Finally, in the heavyweight category, we have the Samsung Galaxy Mega. This behemoth measures in at 6.3-inches (720p LCD screen) with a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8930 Pro processor, 1.5GB RAM, 16GB storage, microSD card slot, 8MP camera, 3200mAh battery and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. At $149.99 on-contract and $479.99 off-contract, the Galaxy Mega is reasonably priced and could attract customers who want a huge display on their phone. On the other hand, the size and aging specs of the device could turn other potential buyers away.

If you’re on AT&T, are you planning to purchase any of these devices?
