Nowhere near as enthralling as the G4 flagship, LG’s low to mid-end Leon still looked like it had a few things going for it when it went on sale roughly a month ago. Add (even more) extreme affordability in the equation for the next few hours, as the 4.5-inch Lollipop handheld costs a ridiculously low $79.92 through June 30.
That doesn’t give you a lot of time to evaluate the deal and explore other options, but trust us when we tell you it’s impossible to find something better at under a Benjamin. Free of contractual obligations, that is, although not free of carrier restrictions.
You buy the Leon from T-Mobile, you activate it on Magenta, that’s the understanding, and it’s a fair “compromise”, since you can choose to pay the 80 bucks in 24 monthly installments of $3.33, with zero down.
By no means an ugly device, the fashionably rounded 4.5 incher features rear physical buttons, just like all its top-tier brothers and sisters, and packs a more than respectable 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor. Hands down the strongest point is 4G LTE connectivity, though, with sub-par 854 x 480 screen resolution at the other end of the spectrum.
1 GB RAM, a 5 MP main photographic unit, VGA front cam, 1,900 mAh battery, 8 GB internal storage and microSD support wrap up the mediocre but ultimately satisfying list of specifications… considering the trimmed price.
