The latest LG flagship also features a 13 MP primary camera with OIS and 1080p@30 fps video recording support, a 2.1 MP user-facing camera, 32 GB of internal storage, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
The second smartphone that received a cut off in price is Moto X. A couple of days ago Motorola’s flagship received the same treatement from Best Buy. Existing and new AT&T and Verizon customers will be able to purchase the smartphone at a discounted price of $99.
As a refresher, the Moto X packs a 4.7-inch HD AMOLED display, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, 10 MP ClearPixel camera on the back, and a 2 MP front camera. The specs list also includes 2,200 mAh battery and an X8 mobile computing system which is basically a Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset customized by Motorola. It has a quad-core Adreno 320 GPU, dual-core 1.7 GHz Krait CPU, and two low-power cores for contextual and natural language computing.
Anyway, Moto X’s ace up the sleeve are the special software features like Touchless Control, Motorola Assist, and Active Display Technology, all integrated on almost-stock Android 4.2.2.
