LG Optimus F3 pictured, detailed for Sprint

LG's been making more than a few waves lately with its latest generation of devices, as well as handsets on the horizon that are already creating a good deal of buzz. The newly-minted, third-place smartphone OEM has two more additions for Sprint alone this quarter: the LS720 Optimus F3 and LS980 Optimus G Pro (already gracing AT&T shelves as the E980).

LG first introduced the F-series at this past Mobile World Congress, framing it as a budget-friendly line of LTE-capable handsets. At the time, just the Optimus F5 and F7 were shown; the F3 would not be revealed until the next month, as part of the company's 2013 mobile lineup for Australia. F3 is a 4.0-inch (WVGA), dual-core Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 device with beefy 2,460mAh battery.

Look for F3 in the next few weeks, priced aggressively on contract.

I don't trust any Phonearena review / article about LG after that ridiculous poorly written / edited advertorial about how amazing LG's IPS LCD displays are.

I think the article clearly said it was from LG and that it does not reflect PA's own opinion.

When this device has a larger battery than the HTC One.... not hating on HTC, but this is embarrasing
