Boost Mobile LG Optimus F3

Earlier this year, Boost Mobile launched the Boost Max, a new phablet from ZTE with a 5.7-inch display. Fast-forward to today and Boost has announced another new Android phone that's the complete opposite of the Max in terms of size.

Boost Mobile today announced the LG Optimus F3, an Android 4.1-powered smartphone with a 4-inch display. The Optimus F3 is available from Boost starting today at a price of $129.99 without a contract. After handing over your hard-earned Benjamins, Jacksons and Washingtons, you'll get the following in return:

  • 4-inch IPS display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 5-megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing shooter
  • 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • Light-up LED home button
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • Custom LG user interface with apps like QSlide 2.0 multitasking and QuickMemo
  • 2460mAh battery

The LG Optimus F3 launched on Sprint and Virgin Mobile last year, so it's not a total shock to see it make its way to Boost Mobile as well. It may not be the freshest phone on the Boost Mobile block, but its combination of a smallish screen, LTE support and affordable price tag could make the Optimus F3 worth a look for consumers that want a handset that can be easily used with one hand.
