Looking for a budget phone to use on AT&T? The carrier has unveiled a brand new phone for those looking to have a large display on a budget. It’s the successor to the LG G Vista from 2014, and it’s simply named the LG G Vista 2. It comes with some good specs and significant improvements, though, so keep reading to learn all about it!

Let’s start with the specs, shall we? AT&T and LG don’t go too much into the details, but the main features are clear. For starters, the LG G vista 2 sports a stronger Snapdragon 615 Soc, which is definitely an upgrade over the predecessor’s Snapdragon 400.

The screen has also been upgraded to a 5.7-inch 1080p panel, as opposed to 720. Other characteristics include Android 5.0, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, microSD support, an included stylus, a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front shooter.

If there’s something I like about LG’s devices it is that even the lower-end handsets feature all the software improvements that LG has to offer. The LG G Vista 2 takes advantage of Knock On, Knock Code, QSlide , Quick Memo and more. Not to mention all the cool things you can do with that fancy stylus.

It’s also exciting to see that this phone adopts the LG G4‘s iconic design. The back has that 3D checkered effect, and it seems to be slightly curved, too. Obviously, the buttons are still in the back, which is something that won’t be changing anytime soon.


There’s no mention of when the phone will be released, nor do we know how much it will cost, but this gadget should offer good value for your cash when it does hit the market. We also have to wonder if it is ever coming to Verizon, as well. The previous iteration came to both AT&T and Big Red.

What do you guys think of the LG G Vista 2? Are you thinking about getting one?
