The MetroPCS LG Motion is now selling for $40 without a contract. Reddit user jwyche008 pointed this out on a post in the website, saying that the device is possibly only available in MetroPCS stores, and not online. Currently, a search for LG Motion yields no results on the MetroPCS website.
The device does not have very impressive specifications when compared to today’s standards, but it may be a good deal for those who are looking for an off-contract smartphone.

The MetroPCS LG Motion comes with a 3.5-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960L SoC with a clock speed of 1.2 GHz, 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
