Not having money will no longer be a excuse for not having a smartphone. LG have just launched the LG Lucky, an Android phone for just 10 bucks. For this price you can’t expect a Samsung Galaxy S6. What you can expect is a phone capable of using WhatsApp and social networks, taking photos, surfing the web, or listening music.
LG Lucky has the following technical specifications: 3.8 inch screen, 1.2GHz dual core processor, 3 megapixel camera, 4GB of memory from an included microSD card, 3G, WiFi… and Android 4.4 KitKat! The latter is a huge surprise, since with these specifications we expected the phone to run, at most, Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Imagine: LG Lucky’s technology is equivalent to the first iPhone. A short time ago I had my hands on a first generation iPhone and, even though most apps didn’t work due to the lack of iOS updates, it’s performance was still more than acceptable.
This phone will probably be especially useful for old people or for people who don’t want to be too connected but refuse to give up communication with family and friends.
The LG Lucky is currently only sold in Walmart, so the rest of the world will have to wait.
