Conclusion: There are better phones out there, and yes, there are better phones available on MetroPCS, but if you’re looking for the best bang for your buck option available on the carrier, the LG Spirit 4G is definitely worth the $199 it is currently going for via their website. While the screen resolution and camera may not be at the top of the class, the performance and general sturdiness of the Spirit make it a serious contender in the mid-range market.
Summary: For $199, the LG Spirit 4G delivers strong performance, a bright 4.5-inch screen and long battery life. You also get some of LG's nifty software innovations, such as QuickMemo. Metro PCS customers willing to spend more up front will prefer the $499 Galaxy S III, which offers a bigger and sharper screen along with a better camera. Overall, though, the LG Spirit 4G is one of the better phones in MetroPCS' growing stable of affordable powerhouses.
Pros: Good performance and graphics, Fast 4G LTE speeds, Excellent battery life, Bright Gorilla Glass display, Inexpensive over two years
