MetroPCS 8GB phone has 1.5GB RAM. Android 5.1. Calls over WiFi, which for overseas travel will be awesome.
I just picked up 2 of these from Metro PCS for $50/ea. (Replaced Samsung Galaxy Light) I went in the store ready to get the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime. But after seeing this and comparing everything, this won out. Yes the rear camera and screen have better specs on the SGGP, but they were not a big enough difference for me to spend twice the price. Now if you are gonna compare to high end, yes, it will lose. BUT even tho the screen res is low, it is more than acceptable for my eyes. Which is all that should matter, ignore specs and go see and try out for yourself. I watched a movie on Vudu, looked fine...for a 5" screen. I like the bigger size vs my previous device which had a 4" screen. So far it is nice and smooth, no issues downloading a bunch of apps. Wish the WiFi was dual band as I have a dual band router, but still worked with no lag and pretty fast download speeds. Our old devices would stutter and lag at times and seemingly all the time whenever an app was updating or downloading. I have a Galaxy S5 for my job through my employer and this LG stands up pretty well against it. Let's be honest tho, at $50 there is really no risk involved in comparison to the $500+ phones. If I drop it, run over it, take it for a swim...big deal, it's $50. Try saying that with an iPhone or S6. So in closing, it has been great and I really do not regret the purchase.

Anonymous, 13 Jan 2016hahahaaaaaa.... quad core 1.1 ghz or 1.3 ghz and just 1/1.5 g of ram. it is really laughable. ... moreHave you used it? People who go off specs make me laugh. I sat this down next to my friends galaxy s6. Load times, boot times, sound quality, app performance were almost indistinguishable. People go on and about retina. From the distance people use their phones at, barely distinguishable. Pics suck but I have a DV, and I'm only taken drunken selfies with a phone anyway. Keep letting people tell you you need a octo core. The software is governed! That's right Android OS even when rooted is governed! Which is why even rooted, over clocking a mobile device is a thing of the past and only causes masivee instability. Don't get me wrong this is a temp until I decide my next permanent phone but I'm impressed for $50. And I build custom gaming computers regularly. And my lady friend with a s6 who paid 350 with deposit and deductible was a bit bitter ha-ha.

Sebstin, 07 Jan 20162016 and releasing < 200 PPI phones?.. Who will even buy this?Well... most women don't really know what pixel density is.. As long as the phone looks good, they don't care what is inside it..
Same goes for men who are totally ignorant about smartphones
