There are literally dozens of far more impressive smartphones than LG’s Optimus F7 around, but regardless of that F7’s Boost Mobile release is still a big deal. Why? Because of the thing’s bang for the buck factor, of course.
Boost, which is a tiny prepaid subsidiary of Sprint, has officially announced Optimus F7’s upcoming price on the network – $299.99 off-contract. Not quite a steal, but close enough.
Remember, there’s only one other place you can get the 4.7-inch mid-ranger at the moment, via US Cellular, which charges $99.99 for it, plus it asks you to commit to one of those lengthy and pesky carrier agreements.
Also, if you remember the first time we heard of a possible F7 launch on Boost, you might also recall we told you there was no way the gadget would cost less than $400, since the HTC One SV was available for 300 bucks. I don’t like it, but I’m man enough to admit I was wrong.
Having said all that, I should probably also mention the Optimus F7 will go on sale one week from now, on the 27th, and come with a 720p display, dual-core 1.5 GHz CPU, 2 GB of RAM (!), 2,540 mAh battery and 4G LTE speeds in tow. And oh, did I mention the thing is a looker too, measuring 9.6 mm in thickness and sporting a very clean industrial design? In the words of the great philosopher Wanz, this is f-ing awesome!
