Mainly just the tests that the FCC runs to approve phones (and other electronics) for sale. Its pretty much the last step a phone goes through before it gets released.

Then your next bet is to wait for either the ZTE or the admire 4g because I'm assuming the 4 inch cool pad is not an option

It wouldn't be a huge shock if the Admire 4G were 3.5". The Admire is 3.5" after all.


Do we have any information on the Admire 4G and L1? The only thing I can find on them is a list earlier this year that turned out to be rather accurate. But then they don't appear on the roadmap leak.

Doesn't help that searching "Admire 4G" is a bit useless...

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised the Admire 4G was more of a budget handset like its predecessor. Whether or not it will be as good a value as the Motion is what I'd like to see. Seeing as to how the Lightray and even the Attain are priced.

(This is just speculation) As for the LG L1, it might be something along the lines of LG's new Optimus L line. The one thing I'd be concerned about is how the Optimus L line is really just all about the design of the phone and not so much the performance. If you look at the specs of those phones they're downright attrocious.

The L3 has a 3.2inch 320x240 resolution screen, with a 600MHz S1 processor, Gingerbread, and 3 MP camera... bleh. Its dirt cheap for an unlocked smartphone though

The L5 only really gets a larger 4inch screen with and equally bad 480x320 resolution display, ICS, and a 5MP camera. It uses an underclocked (1GHz-->800MHz) S1 processor

The L7, which is the "best" of the bunch has a 4.3inch screen with a better resolution of 480x800 screen. This screen is also a NOVA screen (like the Connect, a IPS-LCD panel). But the processing power is still paltry with an S1 1GHz processor. It also keeps the 5MP camera.

The good thing is that since these are GSM phones an L1 would probably receive a better processor in order to accommodate LTE connectivity.. If I'm not mistaken there's already a CDMA variant possibly headed to Sprint/Boost known as the "Snapshot" which has an S2 1GHz processor.

Also think of the relation that the L1 would have with the current Metro lineup. The Optimus L line goes up in quality as the numbers get higher (3, 5, 7). But there's already a "lower end" LG LTE phone with the Motion, therefore there's a chance that this will be a completely different phone. Part of me is hoping for some sort of 4X HD variant, since it is LG current superphone.

In my opinion the motion has such a nice specs, but soon as I saw the screen size I thought to my self what a good waste of specs.

Here a link to a preview of the supposed zte Anthom. The screen looss nice and it seems to have the type of backing I love. It also happens to have a asop based ocs but that may have changed before its visit to fcc.

thanks for the post!

they mention lagginess, fc, etc, after being on for a while...
they don't mention why and/or the key specs:

1/2 gb ram
3-1/2gb rom
processor a slight step down from initial announcement-- although not much difference...

not worth getting at any price.

I don't know what people are expecting to get for $149 non-contract. For someone coming from an admire or indulge or an Optimus, which is what the majority of metro customers have, these are quality upgrades.

For those with esteems and connects the GS3 is what you should be looking for.

Well, it's looking 'too much' like nothing really worthwhile for us besides the s3 at a high price(whether fair price or not besides the point)...and likely well-delayed at that.

...It's looking too much like no real upgrade for Esteem/Connect users..
nothing in between the Motion and the far off s3....

so nothing soon, and after a while an expensive upgrade-- which contains no quad core...+ its storage can theoretically still be doubled--guess how soon that model will feel kind of dated...

I hope i'm wrong.

Just in case...This is not about being cheap or frivolous re specs(and i'm not accusing anyone of saying that)-- but with tablets being available at such low prices, either why pay so much more for smaller screen/resolution/other specs...or if have to make do then need more oomph in the phone to get more work done.

i for one dont expect a lot from a $150 phone.i just wish with the specs it has they would of gave it a bigger screen and priced it accordingly.i would of had no problem paying in the $250-$300 price range.

You're taking this too personally.
