Well, that was fast. It was only 24 hours ago that we told you the LG Optimus F6 was headed Metro’s way, courtesy of our always reliable tipster @evleaks, and the mid-range 4.5-incher is already up for grabs via the prepaid carrier.
And it’s even cheaper than we expected, at a measly $199 with no contractual obligations whatsoever. Now granted, this is no G2. On the outside or on the inside. But the value for money is simply mind-blowing.
I dare you, I double dare you to find a more good-looking, up-to-date software-wise and impressive hardware-wise smartphone at a lower or equal price in all America. Trust me, you can’t do it. Heck, you’re lucky if you’ll bump into something similar at $250.
So what’s so special about MetroPCS’ new budget buddy after all? Hmm, where do I start? How about with the piece de resistance: the 2,460 mAh battery. That should be enough to hold you for a good 19 hours or so in continuous talk time or 17 days in stand-by, which is a feat impossible to achieve even for most high-enders out and about.
In other “news”, the Optimus F6 runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, packs a dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus CPU, 1 gig of RAM and 5 MP rear-facing camera with autofocus and LED flash. Also, 4G LTE speeds. And NFC. And a 4.5-inch display that’s not exactly vibrant, at 960 x 540 pixels, but it’s at least, well, ginormous.
