Boost Mobile’s LG Volt is black, while the Virgin Mobile variant is white. That aside, the two versions appear to be similar. The display of the Volt allows us to see that the handset comes with LTE connectivity, and Knock Code (LG’s newest screen unlocking feature).
From the looks of it, the Volt might be based on the LG L90, which is already available at T-Mobile (since late April). If our assumption is correct, the new smartphone should offer Android 4.4 KitKat, a 4.7-inch display with 540 x 960 pixels, quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory. The rear camera (which has an LED flash) could be a 5MP or 8MP one.
Boost Mobile’s LG Volt is showing a May 19 date on its home screen, so perhaps that’s when it will be released. We’re thinking that the smartphone could cost around $200 at Boost and Virgin Mobile. We will let you know when we hear more about this.

Except it's $200. The Moto G is $100 most places.

The Moto G is only $100 at Boost Mobile and Verizon (at least those are the only two I'm aware of) whereas most places offer the device at $150-$170 range. Also it does that they "think" it will cost $200, but they aren't definite on that. So it is very possible it may be offered at around the same price as the Moto G. And to answer @Edward_bly, the Moto G is offered at $99 non-contract on Boost Mobile.

Spent several days with the phone and really like it. Some similar users have also expressed these opinions. #1 Don't notice the low resolution much at all. Everything is sharp. Really good screen overall. #2 Sparkle (LTE Enhanced) may be in a lot more areas then sprint lets on. Works great. #3 Is very fast when web browsing, feels like a good tablet. #4 camera is pretty bad for an 8mp, you are likely to resize your image much smaller to remove fuzzyness. Good colors though. 1080p video is descent, but no image stabilization. #5 Jumps on and off networks and into wifi in a snap. Support for auto logging into public wifi networks you have been on before. (kitkat feature?) #6 very light, huge battery. After a full days use I have yet to bring it below %50 power. #7 3.9 of 8gb accessible, This is apparently normal for LG to install a lot of crap into the OS part of memory.
