The LG Tribute has its shortcomings, but it's an overwhelmingly pleasant surprise in the sub-$100 smartphone category. It's a well-built phone that feels faster than it should, thanks to the modest display resolution and reliable Snapdragon 400 processor. On top of that, the Tribute offers speedy LTE connectivity, which is a rarity at this price point. You won't be able to install a ton of your favorite apps or rely on the Tribute for quality photos, but for first time smartphone buyers or those on tight budgets, the LG Tribute is an excellent choice on Boost Mobile...

Premium style on a budget

from Cnet
LG's Tribute impressed me from the moment I took it out of the box. Its modern design gives it a premium feel, while the internal guts come together to create a deft phone that handles everyday tasks well and the snappy LTE data speeds give you a fast experience when browsing the Web and cruising your social networks.The Tribute is a budget phone done right, thanks to its polished design and solid specs. For $80, you don't have much to lose and you could do much worse on Virgin Mobile. .. Full review
