Smartphones that are more affordably priced but still offer a decent level of functionality are quickly starting to take hold and dominate the smartphone market. In fact, on an almost weekly basis, a new low or mid-range positioned device seems to be announced. LG are a prime example of a company who as well as releasing a flagship device like the LG G4 are also routinely releasing a number of more affordable positioned devices. The most recent of these from LG, came a few days ago when they announced their LG Band Play smartphone. That said, not many of them make it to the U.S. shores.
However, Sprint has now announced today the launch of two LG budget range devices on Boost Mobile. These come in the form of the LG Tribute 2 and the LG Volt 2. Both look to offer a very attractive price point while trying to avoid compromising too much on the specs. In terms of the LG Tribute 2, this one comes equipped with a 4.5-inch IPS display with an 854 x 480 resolution.

In terms of the LG Volt 2, this one comes equipped with a larger 5-inch IPS display with a 1280 x 720 resolution.
