LG is back on Windows Phone 8.1 with the LG Lancet

For a while there it seems that Microsoft is the only one making Windows Phone handsets. Smartphone brands like LG haven’t been making one in a very long time so it’s surprising they’ve created a Windows 8.1 handset now, although it’s currently exclusive to Verizon.


The Lancet is a pretty basic phone but with LTE capability. It runs on a Snapdragon 410 1.2GHz quad-core chip, 1GB RAM, has 8GB storage, 8MP rear camera on a 4.5-inch LCD display.

The XLTE-ready LG Lancet is only available for Verizon Wireless for $5 a month but full retail price is set at $120. We won’t be seeing the LG Lancet here but it’s still an indication that big brands like LG is still trying to come up with Windows Phone 8.1 handsets.

    I think you should lessen articles which really does not affect Philippine techies that much since this is only available in the US for Verizon.

    • Which is why we only write 0.5% all our total articles that are US-centric. Despite that, we still have over 150,000 of our visitors that are US-based so we think it’s cool to update them as well.

      You should not feel out of place, you should feel unique and cool instead. That’s what I feel when people looks at me while using a Lumia phone. Also, I’m excited for the Windows 10 :)

      at least unique ka at hindi sumasabay sa karamihan diba. I have this smartphone I bought from hongkong last year and kind of proud na din kasi bihira lang din akong makakita ng china phone na may 3GB na RAM, pag sa masa usually 512MB lang.

    samsung IS ugly. the most amazing thing about apple? it now looks cheap.
    there is no doubt windows IS beautiful, even apple co-founder attests to this. apps? why the hell do you need 10 billion apps when all they put on their phones is facebook?
