Cricket Wireless has just made the LG Optimus Regard available for you to get a hold of. In case you’re interested to know, this handset happens to be a rebranded and retooled version of the LG Motion 4G that was released earlier for MetroPCS. The LG Optimus Regard sports a 3.5-inch (320 x 480) touchscreen, 5MP rear-facing camera with LED flash, VGA front-facing camera, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB on-board storage, 4G LTE, and the usual smartphone stuff such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. The device is also packed with a 1,700 mAH battery and runs Android 4.0 ICS.
By and large, it seems like a pretty decent smartphone. And if you’re keen in getting the device, it can be had now for $249.99 off contract from Cricket Wireless. But that is of course, if you don’t mind getting a mid-range smartphone and are not so keen owning the more powerful LG Nexus 4 instead. In case you’re not aware, the Nexus flagship device can be bought for just $50 more than the price of the LG Optimus Regard. So, what is it going to be then?
