smartphone -- one made by a recognized brand, no less -- one would ordinarily have to spend closer to $100. But Walmart currently has the LG-manufactured TracFone Lucky LG16 for less than ten dollars, and aside from Android KitKat 4.4, the device includes a reasonable assortment of features for the price.There are, of course, already many options for ten-buck cellphone shoppers, but more often than not, these are plastered with the rather unseemly 'dumphone' moniker. To yield a
For starters, there's a 3.8-inch display, and under the hood, it's powered by a a 1.2 GHz, dual-core processor. There's a 3-megapixel camera to the rear, which probably won't cut it for Instagram, but for such a low cost, it's rather miraculous that the Lucky LG16 even has a shooter at all. The device includes a microSD card of 4 GB -- a scarce commodity in today's mobile climate of fixed storage -- and there's also 3G support.
While useful for the elderly or as a very occasional spare, this is certainly not going to cut it as a daily driver. Definitely worth having, particularly at such a cheap rate, it could prove a saving grace at a time of crisis. But if you are looking for a capable spare to tide you over, functionality will doubtlessly be crippled on such a low-end device; in which case, you may wish to survey other options.

Extremely affordable. Samsung and Apple should learn from LG.

You could buy 5 of these and have a $50 video surveillance for your house.

Lg lending it's brand to such a device is a dumb move in the American market. Sure basically everyone on this site gets that this is a bottom of the barrel device, but let's consider the intelligence of anyone that buys said phone.... Then they say things like "I had an lg, it sucked, you should buy Apple or samsung"
