(UPDATED) LG G Vista official, unflattering specs paired with a familiar design


After a veritable flood of leaks, the LG G Vista on Verizon is official. Marketed as a mid-range relative to the flagship LG G3, the G Vista brings together touches of the G3′s design and pairs them with specs that generally leave us unimpressed. Running down the specs we can find a 5.7-inch qHD (960×540) display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB storage plus microSD card slot, 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, a 3,200mAh battery and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

The G Vista’s screen is disappointing due to its lowly qHD resolution. At a size of 5.7-inches, we’d expect at least 720p. That said, the G Vista’s 3,200mAh battery should keep users powered up for a while. Verizon has priced the LG G Vista at $99 on-contract, which may be just a tad too high for what it’s offering. For the same price, you can get the G3 on Verizon, which is quite possibly the best flagship on the market. If you are interested in the G Vista, hit up the source link below where you can find it available from Verizon’s website.

UPDATE: Verizon’s site was incorrect. The screen resolution is thankfully 720p, rather than the initially reported qHD.

    While specs are not everything, this however is typical LG garbage.

    Specs can come down to more on how they are utilised. Yes at this screen size, 720p would be expected however a phone can still perform nicely with 1.2ghz CPU paired with 1.5gb of RAM. Just look that the aging HTC Sensation. With Viper ROM installed, it rips shreads off most other phones that were released at that time.

    I would expect that this would still be a very fluid phone. It just a shame it’s an LG.

    The battery is a nice size but Please STOP releasing phones with less than 16gb of storage PLEASE.

    Its 2014 & memory is so cheap, I dont care if it has a sd card slot or not, or if it is a mid or high end device STOP releasing 4gb & 8gb phones, the fill up & slow the phone down within 6 months.
