LG Optimus F3 comes to Sprint June 14th; phone will be priced at $29.99
Toward the end of last month, we passed along the word that the LG Optimus F3 was making its way to Sprint. Well, the journey is almost over as Sprint has announced on Thursday that the handset will be available online or through 1-800-SPRINT1 starting June 14th. The LG Optimus F3 will be in stores later this summer. The nation's third largest carrier will offer the device for $29.99 with a mail-in $50 rebate, and a signed two-year contract.

For that price, you're getting a 4 inch display with 480 x 800 resolution (WVGA), and a dual-core 1.2GHz processor. The Korean based manufacturer stuffed a 2460mAh cell into the device which should allow for all-day use (are you reading this, HTC?) Android 4.1.2 is pre-installed. Buyers will have two color options, silver and purple.

The LG Optimus F3 also is the first first phone to come with TalkBack which is a text to speech feature from Google that helps those with some impairment to their vision use the device more easily. It also helps with the activation and setup process. The phone also supports the 90 Sprint ID Packs that are currently available.

"The Korean based manufacturer stuffed a 2460mAh cell into the device which should allow for all-day use (are you reading this, HTC?)..." LOL. Phone Arena just loves taking shots at HTC. I find it rather humorous.

It's a valid dig. HTC won't even put a battery that big in their flagship, let alone a low or midranger. Everything about the One mini looks great except the 1700 mAh battery!

I'm in agreement. Like I said, I just think it's funny. It's the second time they've done it in a week.

I have gotten at least 2 days out of every HTC phone I've owned, (which only happens to be the last 3 consecutive flagship devices.) I consistently field complaints from owners of other phones about their battery life, and I specifically sell HTC to customers who are looking for a better than average battery life. So, I guess I don't get this "valid dig" business?

Why is Nature UI running on it? Exactly, it looks like a Samsung, especially the 2-years-ago flagship :D

as far as i know,regarding the screenshot of the phone, i actually think its not the real picture of the phone's screen because as far as i remmber lg still using blue color for battery and for the color and a brighter dgree of black taskbar,something doesn't add up about this pitcular image.but i could simply be wrong...
