LG is offering a superb entry-level smartphone for those just venturing into the market. Users will find it easy to use and well designed for aesthetics and functionality. The average price is around $300, though that price will fluctuate depending on the service provider, the region purchased, and the promotional opportunities/ discounts available when purchased.
