LG Aristo is an affordable 4G LTE handset that arrived in the US back in January when T-Mobile and MetroPCS added it to their portfolios. Now, US Cellular is making it available to its customers as well, but using a different name - LG K8 2017.

  • Battery/Autonomy: 2,500 mAh (removable); more than 12 hours talk time and almost 15 days standby
  • Colors: silver, gold, titan, dark blue

New US Cellular customers can get the LG K8 2017 for just $49.99 USD when acquired with a prepaid Simple Connect Plan. The original price of $150 USD also applies to those who do not need a prepaid plan and would rather choose to pay a few dollars each month ($5 USD each month for 30 months, for example).

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
