Verizon offering sequels to two pre-paid models from LG
Not everyone can afford the latest hot-spec'd smartphones, so each carrier usually has a number of inexpensive devices to offer those who use pre-paid service. LG has just produced sequels for two of these models, both of which are now available from Verizon. Both the LG Zone 2 and LG Extravert 2 are limited to 3G connectivity, which means no LTE service on either of these handsets. That is typical for Verizon's pre-paid offering.

On sale for $49.99, the LG Zone 2 is powered by Android 4.4 KitKat. It offers a 3.5 inch screen with resolution of 320 x 480, the same resolution that was used on the OG Apple iPhone. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of native storage inside. A 32GB microSD slot is included for those requiring more storage. A 3MP camera is on back, and a 1700mAh battery keeps the power on. 

The LG Extravert 2 is a featurephone available for $79.99. This basic model offers a 3.2 inch screen and comes with the Opera Mini browser. It offers Auto-Reply, which tells people via a text message that you are busy, or away. You can even schedule when you want a text message to arrive. There is a physical slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and a 2MP camera, which makes this unit perfect for your typical pre-teen.

Both phones can now be found now on Verizon's website.

The LG Zone 2 runs on Android 4.4

Why Verizon's prepaid network still won't support 4G LTE is beyond me.

because post paid customers pay more than prepaid. If you want 4G LTE then you will have to spend more to get it. To Verizon money really is everything not customers.
