Verizon offering sequels to two pre-paid models from LG
Not everyone can afford the latest hot-spec'd smartphones, so each carrier usually has a number of inexpensive devices to offer those who use pre-paid service. LG has just produced sequels for two of these models, both of which are now available from Verizon. Both the LG Zone 2 and LG Extravert 2 are limited to 3G connectivity, which means no LTE service on either of these handsets. That is typical for Verizon's pre-paid offering.

On sale for $49.99, the LG Zone 2 is powered by Android 4.4 KitKat. It offers a 3.5 inch screen with resolution of 320 x 480, the same resolution that was used on the OG Apple iPhone. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of native storage inside. A 32GB microSD slot is included for those requiring more storage. A 3MP camera is on back, and a 1700mAh battery keeps the power on. 

The LG Extravert 2 is a featurephone available for $79.99. This basic model offers a 3.2 inch screen and comes with the Opera Mini browser. It offers Auto-Reply, which tells people via a text message that you are busy, or away. You can even schedule when you want a text message to arrive. There is a physical slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and a 2MP camera, which makes this unit perfect for your typical pre-teen.

Both phones can now be found now on Verizon's website.
