Compared to the G3, the G Vista ups the screen size and downgrades the resolution

LG recently announced some impressive earnings for Q2 thanks to sales of 14.5 million smartphones. The company’s flagship G3 smartphone contributed greatly to the company’s bottom line, and LG is now looking to take some of the style of the G3 and apply it to a more affordable package.
 
As a result, we are today seeing the launch of the G Vista, which will operate on the Verizon Wireless network. Whereas the G3 features a 5.5” QHD (2560x1440) display, the G Vista comes packing a decidedly low-tech 960x540 resolution 5.7” display.
 
The budget specs extend to other areas of the smartphone including a 1.2GHz quad-core processor paired with 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

 
Other features include a microSD slot for storage expansion, an 8MP rear camera and 1.3MP front cameras, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, LTE connectivity, and a 3200 mAh battery.
 
The G Vista will cost you $400 off contract ($200 less than the G3), or $99 with a two-year contract (compared to $199 for the G3). Those that sign up for Verizon EDGE can get the G Vista for $19.99/month.
