Sprint subscribers looking for an affordable smartphone can now add the LG G3 Vigor to their lists of options. This neat device offers a great design, modest specs, good performance and most features you can find on the LG G3. Want it? It will be launched this Friday, September 19th in all Sprint sales channels.

LG G3 Vigor specs

  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat
  • 5-inch 720p IPS LCD display
  • 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 8 GB of internal storage
  • 8 MP rear-facing camera
  • 1.3 MP front-facing camera
  • 2540 mAh battery

The LG G3 Vigor looks much like the flagship G3, but it takes some hits in the specs in order to reduce the price. You will definitely notice the reduction in screen size and definition. Performance should be good with a Snapdragon 400 and 1 GB of RAM, but it will definitely lose when compared to high-end smartphones.

What I do love about LG is that they bring nearly all their software features to their low-end devices, a practice that is not very usual in the industry. Most manufacturers leave the coolest features for the high-end smartphones, even when there are no real hardware limitations.

LG G3 Vigor users will get Knock Code, Knock On, Smart Keyboard, Smart Cleaning, QSlide, Quick Memo and more. By the way, the device also supports Sprint’s Spark 4G LTE technology and WiFi calling.

Price and availability

Now, let’s jump into the most important factor – price. The LG G3 Vigor will cost you $299 off contract, which definitely not bad, even if similar phones out there come with similar (or lower) prices. The LG G3 Vigor may look and feel better to you, though.

You can also get it on payments with a $0 down payment and 24 monthly $12.50 payments. Are you signing up for one of these come September 19th?

Update: AT&T joins the party

It seems AT&T didn’t want Sprint to have all the fun tonight and they have decided to also make an announcement. AT&T is saying they will also release the LG G3 Vigor. No details on price, release date or even the device are mentioned, but they do encourage interested customers to stay tuned to www.att.com/G3Vigor for more details.
