Today we have a plethora of new devices being announced and hitting the market. Will you be signing up for a YotaPhone 2, an affordable LG handset or a unique Droid Turbo? Or are you just going to skip all these? Let’s see what the best option is!
Have you been eagerly waiting for the YotaPhone 2 to make it to the USA? Well, your dreams have come true and YotaPhone has finally made its flagship device available. It can only be pre-ordered so far, though, and you have to go through IndieGoGo.
The device raced through its campaign goal of $50,000, nearly doubling it in less than a day. Needless to say there’s no doubt the phone will make it here, so be sure that if you back this project you should get your phone in August.
There was a great deal for the first hundred, who were able to snatch the device for just $500, when the retail price will reach at least $600. Of course, those are all gone, but you can still get it for $525 if you put in your pledge before two days. After that, you will be able to get yourself a YotaPhone 2 for $550.
Opinion: This phone is amazing. I fell in love with it since I saw it at MWC, last year. It’s such a unique device, and that second screen really changes the way you can use your phone. I would definitely get it if I wasn’t so eager to move to Project Fi.
LG is one of the biggest affordable smartphone manufacturers and they are back at it with a couple new options. The Koreans today unveiled the LG G4 Stylus and the LG G4c. Both are affordable and come with similar specs, but there’s a main difference in screen sizes.
The LG G4 Stylus comes with a 5.7-inch 720p display. Specs include a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of ROM, a 13 or 8 MP camera (LTE and 3G versions, accordingly), a 5 Mp front camera and a 3000 mAh battery.
On the other hand, the LG G4c comes with a much more modest 5-inch 720p display. This one rocks a similar processor, RAM, ROM and front-facing camera. The main difference here is in the 2540 mAh battery, and of course, the size. This phone also comes with only one rear camera option, which clocks in at 8 MP.
Opinion: These are great little phones if they come at the right price. Sadly, we don’t know pricing information just yet. LG claims that will depend on the market, and that the phone will start rolling out in the “coming weeks”.
Stuck with an old Verizon phone? Maybe it’s time to switch to something a bit more battery friendly. The Motorola Droid Turbo is still among the best phones out there for those who treasure good battery life, and you may be able to rock your long-lasting phone with much more style soon.
Verizon has announced they will be launching three very cool versions of the phone. These will all come in gray Ballistic Nylon with a few different options for the accents: metallic blue, metallic orange or metallic violet.
Opinion: The phone will cost only $499.99 and you can easily get it on Verizon Edge. The only question is: which color do you prefer?
