Review: LG Tribute 2 for Boost Mobile

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  

The Tribute 2 is a mixed bag. I genuinely like the hardware and think LG did a great job designing an attractive phone that costs only $99. The Tribute 2's performance falls flat all over the place, however, which makes it hard to recommend to anyone.

The phone struggled to find Sprint's LTE network and call quality was among the worst I've experienced in recent memory. Battery life was never more than average. The UI is quick enough, but it lacks some of LG's unique features, such as EasyHome and QSlide apps. The stripped down camera app and sub-par photos it produces were a disappointment, as well.

Boost Mobile customers may be better off ignoring the LG Tribute 2 and choosing the Motorola Moto E or Moto G, which have similar price points and much better performance. Sadly, the Tribute 2 won't be earning any tributes from me.
