The good & bad with Boost Mobile LG Marquee
Back in September of last year, Sprint’s version of the LG Optimus Black the Marquee was announced with its specs and possible release date. It would be the month of January 2012 that the handset would finally launch, and today we wanted to take a look at the phone landing on Boost Mobile’s 3G network with its good and bad points.
By having the Marquee on Boost, users will benefit from paying a stand-alone price without a contract hanging around their neck. Cnet.com have reported on the good and bad points of the phone, with what includes in design to have a slim and weightless feel allowing easy portability of the phone, to have a vibrant 4-inch Nova display, 1GHz processor, 5MP rear camera with 2 to the front, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, connectivity via WiFi and Bluetooth, GPS, Boost’s very own ID button allowing the 5 home screens to be changed with apps and widgets.
When studying the new Marquee on Boost’s network, the overall feel for the handset is good, although it was noted that the device with its supposed tight grip appears to slip through the fingers, this could be down to the matte coating, along with the handset giving a fairly slow performance from its processor. On the flipside to this, the Marquee’s display is reported to be one of the best on the market giving bright, crisp colours giving it an equal pegging with the iPhone’s retina display, although graphics could have been more impressive.
The LG Marquee on Boost retails for $279 and is reported to be their flagship phone, whereas if you fancied purchasing the phone on rivals Sprint, you would have to find $99 after signing up to a two-year contract with mail-in rebate.
Would you be tempted to buy the LG Marquee on Boost as a one off payment? Perhaps you already have the phone, in which case we would like to know how you are finding it?
