Damn! That is not a bad price for a pre-paid Android device.
I could be wrong, but it appears that there isn't any crapware.

Yeah it's too bad though Metro is only 1x in most markets.

Where's the Megatron version?

Cute....... 🤣 🙂
Not a bad idea. It would have to be a 4.3 inch screen. Megatron ALWAYS punked Prime.

MetroPCS is being awfully quiet about the data capabilities of this device. My guess is that it doesn't include LTE, which means that data speeds will be slow.

But hey, you can always hope for an Optimus M4, right?
It does not have LTE and they aren't being quiet about it. 1X is just plain slow for web browsing but downloading apps and such shouldn't be a problem for most.

Remember too that this device is $50 per month for unlimited everything.

So, where's the Optimus A?

We've already had versions of this phone for Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon (the Vortex), US Cellular, and now Metro PCS. Methinks one is being left out here.
