LG L70 priced at around $160, should be launched in April
Last month, when LG announced its new L Series III handsets, it didn’t say when they’d be released, and neither for what prices. Well, we now have details on the price and availability of the LG L70, which is the new series’ mid-range smartphone (although it’s more like an entry-level device).

According to ePrice, the L70 has a suggested retail price of $163 in Taiwan, where it will go on sale starting the very first day of April. The new handset is also listed by Amazon Germany, but it’s considerably pricier there: $246 (€179). Amazon doesn't say when it will have the L70 in stock, but the phone's home screen suggests that April 1 may be the launch date for Germany, too. 

While it offers the latest software, including Android 4.4 KitKat and Knock Code, the LG L70 is far from being an impressive smartphone. Its features include a 4.5-inch WVGA (480 x 800) display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 5MP rear camera, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2,100 mAh battery. For more, you can check out our LG L70 hands-on here.

you are right bro, Moto G is available at high price in countries of asia where there are already many handsets available at lesser prices, with the different branding names, phones are available, BLU in US , Qmobile and voice in pakistan, Micromax, XOLO, Karbonn, Gionee, ZOPO, etc are available at much cheaper price, and few models are same , as what is released by BLU in US

Its priced about $30 higher here in India. Its not bad at all. These local companies just care about releasing a product, they hardly give any updates. MMX's latest phone still comes with Android 4.2. And I'm sure people know how Moto G was sold out here!

All the OEMs you mentioned are cheap chinese with crap mediatek chipset. From my 1 month experience snapdragons are far better. Even quad core Mediatek lags like hell and there is no custom rom and dev support. Moto G has official cyanogenmod 11 support. Its okay bro when moto g was announced first i scratched my head what different is it. But things get clear after you dig a bit. Moto g is far superior not only in Specs.

I do agree with you my bro, about superiority of Moto G over these crapy mediateks Quadcore, but the point i am raising is, Moto G does nt come in the same price it is announced for, for 300 dollars Moto G(16gb) is no way a best choice for people, as S3 now cost exactly ($330) so who ever want to go in this budget will go for S3

but the people who have budget of $200 they will not go for extra $100, when they know it is just bcz the profit margin of channels, this Moto G is coming to them, as their is high chance for the availablity in next few days at $200 price tag and it has happened in these markets with different sony phones, when sony made it available prices came down, btw, i am talking about non warranty Moto G(16gb) while s3 is with samsung warranty

So this is why people do not consider some thing, depending upon the reality of the region it is available, and compared to its competitiprs it is a best buy or not

Motorola did pretty much good job in other countries afterall it depends on your country's taxing system and custom duty. Hey felix are you from Indonesia

LG is Samsung's cousin, it's not surprising if they share similar design on many smartphone models.

Lg once said that they sold 40m L series handsets. So 40m is a pretty large chunk responsible for android fragmentation.

Not feeling the physical home button, it makes it look outdated.

I couldn't live a day without the physical button on my Note 3. As much as I am in love with the new One, I will have to pass just because it has the on screen buttons. But again, everyone has his own preference.

True that it may look a bit hideous but its lot more functional than other solutions. It gives a satisfying click feel.

Yeah, agree with you. L7 II has more beautiful design

I agree, I too prefer/insist no hardware button on screen face.
We are the minority it seems.

Even L90 is less interesting than Moto G, imagine this........
