LG (Optimus) F60 launched in the US via MetroPCS, offers LTE and Android KitKat on the cheap
Officially announced in early October, the LG F60 is now available to buy in the US - though only MetroPCS is selling it (at least for the moment). While LG announced the handset as simply F60, MetroPCS is calling it Optimus F60.

The (Optimus) F60 is one of the cheapest LTE smartphones in the US. Thus, as you’d imagine, it’s far from being a high-end device. 

The handset is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor, and sports a 4.5-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels and a 207 ppi density. Other features include a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, 1.3 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2020 mAh battery (this is slightly smaller than the 2100 mAh battery that’s found inside the phone’s international version). The new smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and - as you’ll see in the video embedded below - it also comes with Knock Code, LG’s own screen unlocking feature.

MetroPCS is selling the Optimus F60 for only $99.99 - after a $10 instant rebate, and a $50 mail-in rebate (no contract required). You can buy the handset online by visiting the source link below. Any takers?

Why the hell do they keep releasing phones with 4 GB of internal storage?! Don't they realize that kills the whole smartphone experience?

Why is Metro still releasing phones? I thought they were to be disolved by January

I have this so I can speak from experience. The phone comes with eight (8) gigs of internal memory, not four (4). You can add up to additional 32gb in a mini-sd. It has Snapdragon 410 and Cortex A53. That's 64-bit baby... Humm... is Note 4 or Note Edge 64-bit? Unbelievable... So here, a fifty (50) bucks phone (yes, black Friday came early) kicks little munchkin arse where the big bad boys fall woefully short. A-mazing. The Snapdragon 808 and 810 are not slated to appear in units until 2015 Q1. Who gives... Just about the only thing that's off on this little punter is the screen - it's not up to par and a bit washed out in color. And the camera's not something you'd win contests any time soon. But for a half C note, you get WAY more than you'd get from a comparable Samsung, HTC, etc. And with Metro, no contract baby - three months in, I can have them unlock and use elsewhere (including Europe) All in all, if you consider yourself a Ron Swanson type, this is the PERFECT phone for you.

Heck the F6 is enough for me, but I still want more. I don't know why. The F6 has that internal memory storage problem, which was a big deal to me for a bit when I was playing with a lot of different apps, but I don't do that anymore so I don't even care, but I still want more LOL. I just wonder if it's really more responsive with its processing, some say even if it has twice the cores it's still only 1.2GHz...
