The latest result of the collaboration between LG and Verizon Wireless is the LG Zone 4 low-end Android smartphone. The highlights of this handset include a 5-inch HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 2 TB, WiFi calling and HD voice, all with Android 7.1.2 Nougat on top. The (very) budget-friendly price tag reads only US$114.99.

The low-cost LG Optimus Zone 3 apparently has a successor, although Verizon Wireless and LG are not advertising it as such. The new LG Zone 4 is nothing more but another low-end Android-powered  handset for those on a very tight budget who need WiFi calling and HD voice capabilities and do not need advanced mobile photography or multitasking capabilities.

Quietly added by Verizon Wireless to its portfolio, the LG Zone 4 is a compact handset with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor under the hood, next to 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, and the ability to use microSD cards with a capacity that can reach an impressive value of 2 TB. 

On the other hand, the 5-inch display and the 8 MP main camera are nothing to talk about. However, the user-removable 2,500 mAh battery can provide more than 2 weeks in standby and one day and half of regular usage. The operating system coming pre-loaded on the phone is Android 7.1.2 Nougat and an official update to Android 8.0 Oreo is most likely out of the question.

Given the price tag of just US$114.99, it is very likely that many Verizon Wireless customers will find it useful, at least a backup handset for adults or the kids' first smartphone.
