The LG K8 2017 is US Cellular's first cheap Android Nougat phone
US Cellular recently started selling the LG K8 2017, a very affordable handset that comes to replace the K8 2016.

Previously released via T-Mobile and MetroPCS under the name LG Aristo, the LG K8 2017 can be purchased from US Cellular for just $49.99 on prepay (after a $100 online discount), or for $5 per month over 30 months. As you'd imagine, this is not exactly a powerful smartphone, but, at this price level, you shouldn't expect it to be anyway.

The K8 2017 sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and runs Android 7 Nougat out of the box, being US Cellular's second Nougat phone (after the expensive LG V20). The handset further features LTE, a quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2500 mAh removable battery. On the camera front, you've got an 8 MP rear shooter with LED flash and 1080p video recording, plus a 5 MP front-facing selfie snapper.

Unlike T-Mobile and MetroPCS, which are offering a silver version of the new handset, US Cellular is selling the LG K8 2017 only in blue. You can purchase the phone online by visiting US Cellular's website via the source link below.
