LG G Vista from AT&T

The LG G Vista will be available on AT&T for $49.99 with a two-year agreement or $354.99 with no strings attached starting August 22. If you're willing to sign up for a new two-year qualifying plan, AT&T will even toss in an LG G Pad 7.0 LTE for a buck.

Though the G Vista packs an impressively large 3,200 mAh battery and a 5.7-inch display, you'll have to make do with a 1280 x 720 display. A 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 8 megapixel camera with LaserFocus round out the rest of the device.

If you're really itching to get one of these, the G Vista has already graced Verizon shelves, but if you're hooked on AT&T, their G Vista landing page is set up for e-mail notifications.

I thought I read before that the Verizon version came with qHD (960x640) display, or was I mistaken?

damn, this thing might be a battery beast.
720P screen, with the SD 400, and 3200 mah battery....looks like they ditched the faux metal backing for glossy plastic though which sucks. not a bad deal though for a phone like this....not sure I could handle 720P on that screen size though.

Exactly. 720p on sub-5" phones is fine, but a display this large? I'd have to see it. But then again, the Flex is 720p at 6", and I don't think anyone complained about the display too much. I guess I'd have to see it.

I'm still running a note 2 with a 5.5" screen @ 720p and while I know there are better ones, to me the picture looks great still.

I just got this phone for my sister yesterday after adding her to my line on Verizon edge. The phone practically pays for itself and I didn't know it was a 720p screen until I looked it up. She likes big phones so she's happy with it. But she was coming from a Chinese Samsung S3 wannabe called Blu. I could've honestly probably got her Droid Razor Max and she would've loved it. Lol

Did she not like the Blu phone? I've been kind of interested in that company (which is a US company, although I don't know who their manufacturing partners are), since they're low-cost and have a decent feature set, but I don't know anyone who has actually used one.

Just for reference, the OG Motorola Droid, the one running Android 2.0 from 5 years ago, had higher pixel density than this.

720p on a 6.1" Huawei Ascend Mate2 looks perfect to me. I've had one going on 3 weeks, not one issue other than the battery just doesn't run down (THAT being a GOOD thing). I get about 3 days easy on this, and I use the phone A LOT during the day, mostly for phone, lots of web, few texts & emails. No streaming, games etc. It's a workhorse & I use it that way. 720p + snap 400 + 3900mAH battery for 300 bucks? What's not to love? Jb4.3? I don't care if it doesn't have the latest or greatest processor, 2k screen or kk, IT WORKS! and it's stable. That's all I care. People that want to spend 600 bucks or more on "flagships"...hey, it's your money, but I'd rather have VALUE, and the mid range guys are pumping out some pretty good devices. The Mate2, sounds big, but if you had a Note1 like I did, it's the same thickness & width, and only 1/2" taller, but you get a wider & taller screen, because of reduced bezels. Some people say but these chinese suppliers don't have good support if you have a problem, shoot, considering the price, I could almost buy 3 of these, for one galaxy note, or similar.

Except for the battery you'd be better off picking up a nexus 5 at that price range. I know the Nexus 5 gets a lot of flack on battery life, but it's enough to get me through the day and I'm a moderate user. (I used to say heavy until I met people online who apparently never put down their phone during the day and need 6-7 hours of screen time, lol 4 Hours SoT with 20 hours standby is enough for me)

Except this has a replacable battery, so it's light years ahead of a nexus on that department. I dont think someone would be looking at this phone or the Nexus... this is closer to a Galaxy Mega or soemthing. This would be someone wanting to not pay a lot but get a bigger screen.

If replaceable batteries are important to you then yea I guess. Keeping a phone for a year is an accomplishment for me :) I don't get the big screen with low end specs market myself, but who am I to judge lol.

Yeah, agreed on the low end spec thing.

Frankly, i dont get ANY phone with low end specs. Release them at high end, and last years model is the low end option, but keep producing it for the next year. Voila... i just cut production cost for all of these companies by 80%. LOL

Agreed, for the most part. I never buy anything but flagships even when shopping for other people in my family, they may be last years flagships but you get the point.

I'll make one exception the Moto G's of the world, a truly good low end phone for $200, you really can't find that anywhere else for that price. But you need a special mix of decent performance , good displays and low prices to make a low end device worth buying. It's very rare. Anything in the $300 or above price range need not apply, your better off with last years flagship.

Right... but i guess my point is, next year the Moto G2 will come out. And do you know what specs it'll match nearly identically? Yup, The Moto X. So... just lower the Moto X to $200, instead of "re-inventing the wheel", as the expression goes...

IF you happen to want a mid-range (which is weird anyways), last years flagship is the exact same as this years mid-range. It's just that one saves the company a TON on production and R&D...

In that case, OnePlus One. I don't care what you say about invites. It would be worth waiting a month or two to get an invite over buying this. Every spec is infinitely better, and you still get the big screen and great battery life, at a lower cost no less.

One Plus One is a good alternative, if you can get one. I passed on it only because the omission of band 2 LTE and the fact that I didn't want to give up OIS on my camera which helps me a lot.

Everyone's criteria is different

So the US gets this instead of the G Pro 2? nice that its cheap but i'd choose a G2 on ebay over it lol

Oh heck yeah. Even a brand new G2 is around this price off contract now, and it has waaaaaaayyyyyyyy better specs all around.

+1000. This phone serves no purpose. You can get MUCH better phones at this price. This has the specs of a Moto G, but with a huge screen and at twice the price.

Not that bad but my oneplus one costs less And has better specs.
