If you’re looking for a decent and affordable new smartphone, if you head on over to Virgin Mobile, there’s a new device available there that might just catch your fancy. LG‘s entry-level smartphone, the Tribute can now be purchased on the online shop both for its one-time payment prepaid plan and also with the monthly unlimited plans.

The budget-friendly smartphone comes with pretty decent specifications, although of course for its price range, you wouldn’t really expect that much. It has a 4.5-inch WVGA (800×480) IPS display and runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor. For its RAM, it has 1GB and then 4GB of internal storage, but can be expanded because it has a micro SD slot. It has a 5-megapixel main camera with LED flash and Full HD 1080p video recording. Again, this doesn’t look pretty impressive on paper, but it’s an entry-level phone, but the 4G LTE connectivity might be a selling point.

In terms of LG’s proprietorial software, it does adapt several of their flagship, the LG G3’s unique features, including the Touch & Shoot which allows you to both focus and take a picture with just one tap. The Tribute also has the knock code that lets you unlock your device just by tapping several areas on the screen that you yourself preset. It will have the latest Android 4.4.2 software, also has Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and has a talktime of 15 hours.

The Tribute is available for purchase at the Virgin Mobile online store for just $79.99 and is ready for shipping. You can also avail of it through the monthly unlimited plans (no contract) that range from $20-$55 per month. If you want to use the phone as a mobile hotspot, you need to add $5 per day and you can connect it to 5 WiFi-enabled devices.
