Verizon LG Optimus Zone 2

LG has added a new phone to its Android lineup on Verizon Wireless, the Optimous Zone 2. Definitely an entry-level device, the Optimus Zone 2 runs Android 4.4.2 features a 3.5-inch 480x320 display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and a 3-megapixel camera. LG's software on the Optimus Zone 2 includes QuickMemo and Guest Mode.

The LG Optimus Zone 2 is priced for retail at $199.99, but Verizon is selling it with a pre-paid plan for just $49.99. It's facing some stiff competition in the cheap pre-paid smartphone space, with the Moto G offering substantially better specifications, though for $50 more (at least right now), and the Nokia Lumia 521 (on AT&T and T-Mobile) also bringing an all-around better device to the table, but again for a a few dollars more.

On the low end, $10 or $20 can make a difference to a buyer — they're not comparing these to the Samsung Galaxy S5's and Nokia Lumia 1520's of the world. If the LG Optimus Zone 2 somehow tickles your fancy, it's available now from Verizon.

What a joke. Look at those specs and the screen. You're better off with the Moto G.

Unbelievable! This pos gets kitkat and we're still waiting for it to arrive on our G2!? I should have held out for the S5...

That won't change anything. Verizon likes taking its sweet time with most phone updates.

Nexus 5...enough said

I'm buying one to use as an mp3 player when I go running. This being so small + play music makes running around the late better. PS I hate bringing my phone because it turns into a distraction

The retail price at 199.99 is hilarious when the 16 GB Moto G is the same price for retail.
With a dual core processor and a resolution of 320 x 480 - depending on the GPU this phone should be so fast it should make your head spin - but I doubt it is.

My mom would love this she gots the Samsung galaxy centura she has right now. I mean its perfect 4gb of storage comes to about 2.8gb or 2.5gb which is perfect and, 1.2 GHz processor, 512mb of ram,1700mah battery, and KitKat 4.4.2 or 4.4.3 if it gets the update!!! Its Great for her and my dad but he's thinking about going contract with Verizon for a Samsung Galaxy S4!!!

Wow this is a crap phone. I'd take the Moto G or the Nokia all day everyday over this. Come on LG...you're better than this!

I have this phone and I have taken very decent pictures with the 3 megapixel camera. It is very fast and has Android kitkat with lots of applications to download. The videos on youtube have very good resolution. This phone is small and handy. I listen to music on iheartradio and it has more volume than my tablet. I like it very much.
