After weeks of leaks and tips, the LG G Vista has officially landed on Verizon. Priced at $100 on a two year service agreement, this handset is a case of a big screen and not so big hardware. The G Vista packs a robust 5.7-inch qHD display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Powered by a 3,200mAh battery, this mid-range G3 lookalike also ships with LG’s Knock Code security feature that lets you wake and lock your device with a few quick screen taps. If you’re looking for a cheap phone that plays nice with Big Red’s XLTE setup, the G Vista might be worth your consideration, however you’ll probably be able to get a little more bang for your buck if you sit down and do a little research.
