Virgin Mobile has grabbed another LTE handset, the LG Optimus F3 will be joining the growing lineup of non-contract smartphones being sold. The LG Optimus F3 is the lower end of the Optimus F line and will cost $179.
The LG Optimus F3 will be available on Virgin Mobile and month-to-month Beyond Talk plans are available for users. This offers unlimited data and messaging for around $35 a month, pretty impressive if you want a cheap taste of Android.
Specs on the LG Optimus F3 are low-end, with a 4-inch 720p display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 2460 mAh battery and 5MP rear camera, it isn’t much on paper but we suspect the phone will work well for anyone new, it comes with Android 4.1.2.
Android Beam is also available on the device, as NFC and Bluetooth both work. The phone is running some LG software and while this may be a turn off for core Android fans, for first time users it may be quite welcoming.
