LG G Vista for Verizon is announced: a mid-ranger with a large screen
Verizon has unveiled the LG G Vista today. It is a mid-range smartphone, running Android 4.4.2 KitKat, with a large 5.7" display touting a 720 x 1280 resolution, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, and 1.5 GB of RAM. It has a 1.3 MP front-facing and an 8 MP rear-facing camera that can snap pictures with resolutions up to 3264 x 2448 pixels and videos up to 1920 x 1080. The handset is powered by a hefty 3200 mAh battery. It comes with 8 GB of internal storage and supports microSD cards for up to 64 GB additional storage. The device is offered for $99 on a 2-year contract.

If you find the camera and storage to be a bit on the underwhelming side – for the same price and contract, Verizon offers the HTC One Remix (a.k.a the HTC One Mini 2), which has the same 720 x 1280 resolution over a smaller 4.5" display (ergo – more PPI), 16 GB on-board memory upgradeable to 128 GB, and better front- and rear-facing cameras at 5 MP and 13 MP, respectively.

Nope. The screen is too large for that resolution and not as good of a value as the One Remix.

Okay this is a little random but what happen to all the HTC M8 prime rumors, and Galaxy Prime?

M8 prime maybe squashed but we'll find out at the event in the next week or so. The Galaxy prime turned out not to be the metal Alpha coming out in Sept but the Galaxy F is supposed to be the one.

This gets a big battery and yet the G3 doesn't?
