LG G Vista 2 (AT&T)

 

The LG G Vista 2 is a perfectly average phablet for AT&T users, but there are more compelling options available in the price range.

Good camera. Removable battery and expandable memory. Solid call quality.

Mixed performance. Lots of bloatware. Stylus lacks useful features.

Software and Conclusions Bloatware is often an issue in carrier-branded devices, and the Vista 2 is no exception. There are over 20 non-Google, preinstalled apps from AT&T and others. That leaves the Vista 2 with a paltry 6.92GB of available space....

LG G Vista review

 

With its giant 5.7-inch display, the LG G Vista joins such phablets like the massive Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the ZTE Boost Max .

The LG G Vista is inexpensive with a carrier agreement, has a bright and expansive display and features LG's customary software goodies.

The phone's size can be unwieldy for some, onboard storage is minimal and its 720p resolution keeps the display quality from shining.

Given its midrange specs, the LG G Vista for AT&T and Verizon is a solid buy if you want a big "phablet" at a low cost.

LG G Vista (AT&T)

 

Though it lacks a certain pizzazz, the oversized LG G Vista smartphone delivers the big-screen goods for small budgets.

Extra-large display. Outstanding battery life.

Overly reflective screen. Cheap-feeling, glossy plastic body.

Competition and Conclusions The LG G Vista has three things going for it: a big screen, a big battery, and a small price tag. It's not quite as large as the Samsung Galaxy Mega, but it's got more modern Android software, faster performance, and costs...

LG G Vista (Verizon Wireless)

 

Though it lacks a certain pizazz, the oversized LG G Vista smartphone delivers the big-screen goods for small budgets.

Extra-large display. Outstanding battery life.

Overly reflective screen. Cheap-feeling, glossy plastic body.

Camera and Conclusions The 8-megapixel, rear-facing camera features the same laser autofocus system that debuted with the G3. Focus was speedy in my tests, but not appreciably quicker than a Galaxy S5 or HTC One (M8) . Image quality isn't nearly as...

LG G Vista Review

 

The LG G Vista is not the most impressive Android phablet, but that's okay because it's also not the most expensive. So what's going on with this mid-range smartphone? Find out in our review.

Decent performance ; Great battery ; Looks good ; LG’s Android tweaks prove useful

Icky build, feels greasy ; Relatively low-res display that suffers in glare ; Camera merely acceptable

The LG G Vista is the phablet for those with modest smartphone needs and a modest smartphone budget. At launch, it’s a perfectly functional device that cuts the right corners. Yes, its plastic build feels greasy, the display resolution is a bit low,...

Review: LG G Vista for Verizon Wireless

 

The LG G Vista is a inexpensive, big-screened Android smartphone that scores well on most features. Only a couple things hold it back, but they aren't vital. Find out what they are in Phone Scoop's full review.

Excellent price for what it is

 

I needed to buy an Android device to test some software. I'm generally an Apple guy, so I was shocked at how much you get for your $s with this device. Does feels rather cheap and plasticy though but, on that front, i guess you get what you are paying...
