Towards the end of last month AT&T had announced that they would soon be offering the LG Vista 2 smartphone exclusively on their network, starting on November 6th, alongside the BlackBerry PRIV handset which is Blackberry's first ever Android smartphone. Right on schedule as it is now November 6th, AT&T sales are live for the LG Vista 2 up on their website, and the phone can also be picked up at local AT&T carrier stores in multiple pricing option including Next 24, Next 18, and Next 12 plans with monthly payments of $14.97, $18.71, and $22.45 respectively, and for an outright cost of $49.99 as a 2-year contract pricing for those who wish to sign an agreement. The phone will also cost $448.99 at full retail for those who choose to buy the phone outright all at once.
The LG Vista 2 comes equipped with 5.7-inch Full HD IPS display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor with 2GB of RAM. It also has 16GB of internal storage but can be expanded upon with a microSD card for those who may need more, and the phone supports up to 32GB cards. The phone was designed with a curved back to make it more comfortable to hold in the hand and LG has added in the functionality of a stylus just like the first model of the Vista.
The phone will be running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box with so far no details on whether or not it will get an update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and it's carrying a rear-facing 13MP camera for the main photos which of course comes with LG's signature laser auto-focus as well as LED flash and options for shooting in full manual mode, with a 5MP camera up front for selfie pictures and video chat. If you like the idea of an integrated stylus pen but aren't particularly a fan of Samsung's offerings, the LG Vista should be a nice option for you, although it doesn't carry the same weight in specifications as something like the Galaxy Note 5. If you're an AT&T subscriber and are in the market for a new phone, you can pick up the LG Vista as of now.
