LG Tribute 5 (K7) launches on Boost Mobile: cheap phone, unimpressive features
Boost Mobile today started selling the LG Tribute 5, a handset which succeeds the Tribute 2 from last year (in case you're wondering, there's no Tribute 3, or Tribute 4).

As previously reported, the Tribute 5 is just a renamed LG K7, a smartphone that was announced earlier this month alongside the LG K10. It's an affordable device with features that will likely not impress anyone. Boost Mobile is selling the Tribute 5 for $99.99, no contract required.

While the LG Tribute 5 sports a display that's larger than the one of the Tribute 2 (5 inches vs. 4.5 inches), its pixel resolution hasn't changed: it's the same 480 x 854 resolution - certainly not flattering for any 5-inch screen in 2016.

The Tribute 5 uses a quad-core, 1.1 GHz Snapdragon 210 processor, which means it's far from being powerful. Other features include Android 5.1 Lollipop, LTE connectivity, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2125 mAh battery. The handset also has a 5 MP rear camera, as well as a 5 MP front-facing camera with Gesture Shot and selfie light (more exactly, the screen can provide a soft light to brighten up your selfies).
