For $150, T-Mobile's LG Aristo 2 Plus supports 600MHz band; phone is now available
T-Mobile subscribers who would rather not shell out the big bucks for a top-shelf smartphone, now have a new budget-priced option in the LG Aristo 2 Plus. You can pay $150 for the phone, lock, stock and barrel, or pay $6 down and $6 a month over 24 months. Before we even get to the specs, we should point out that the device supports T-Mobile's 600MHz network. The carrier purchased 31MHz of the stuff during last year's FCC auction, spending $7.9 billion for the airwaves.

Low-frequency spectrum travels farther and penetrates buildings better, and only a few handsets on T-Mobile's lineup currently support the 600MHz band; the LG Aristo 2 Plus is the cheapest 600MHz option for the wireless operator's subscribers.

The rest of the specs include a 5-inch LCD display with a 720 x 1280 "HD" resolution. Powering the handset is a Snapdragon 425 chipset, featuring a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 308 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage (9GB available to the user). A 13MP rear-facing camera adorns the back (with PDAF) and there is a 5MP front-facing selfie snapper included. The 2410mAh battery has a surprise; it is removable! There is a fingerprint scanner on the device, and Android 7.1.2 is pre-installed.

If you're looking for a budget priced Android option on the T-Mobile network, and you're willing to put up with low-end specs in exchange for a huge savings in handset pricing, click on the sourcelink below. Or, you can visit your local T-Mobile store.
