The LG Esteem has the specs you’d think of in a pretty high end phone on any carrier, check these out:
- 4.3-inch display
- Gorilla Glass
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- 1GHz Snapdragon processor
- 512MB RAM
- 8GB on-board storage
- 5MP rear camera (capable of 720p video recording)
- 1.3MP front-facing camera
- 1500mAh battery
- DLNA streaming
- Metro PCS’ CDMA/LTE network.
You would probably guess it were $199/$249 on a two year contract right? About $5-600 off contract? Well not so fast my friend! MetroPCS has this phone for just $249 after a $100 rebate. Also the unlimited plan with data is just $50 on the carrier. That sounds pretty tempting doesn’t it? Before Metro has had some Android offerings but they seemed to be about a year and a half behind current tech. In fact this is the first Android phone made just for MetroPCS with a screen larger than 3.5 inches. For this price on a no contract carrier, I am tempted to try this out. What about you?
