MetroPCS announces the LG Spirit 4G, priced at only $199

The LG Spirit 4G for MetroPCS has been officially announced and its a smartphone that deal hunters don't want to miss. We're looking at a mid-range device sporting a spacious screen, large battery, and 4G LTE connectivity, all the while costing only $200 without the need for one to sign a long-term contract. Well, you will be actually spending $270 at the time of purchase, but the difference will be given back in the form of a mail-in rebate.

So, what do $200 get you? A 4.5-inch display protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass, to start, which is more than acceptable for a handset of this class. Its resolution has not been mentioned in the official press release, however, so it is probably nothing to brag with. The LG Spirit 4G also packs a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. Again, its make and model aren't being specified, so we aren't expecting anything high-end, although the silicon should meet the needs of the average customer. There's also a 1.3MP front-facing camera for video chats and a 5MP main camera that is capable of capturing 1080p video. 

Another outstanding feature of the LG Spirit 4G is that it is equipped with a beefy, 2,150mAh battery, which is about as much charge as some high-end Android devices offer. There are only 4 gigabytes of on-board storage, but additional space can be added with the use of a microSD card. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich comes running on the device.

The LG Spirit 4G is now available at MetroPCS stores and on the carrier's online store. It can be paired with its new, simple 4G plans, which start at $40 per month and also offer good value for what they cost.
