LG Viper News: Sprint may have already deployed its LTE network in several markets in US shores but the wireless provider hasn’t given the green light yet to get its network lit up. There were reports in the past that the LTE network of the wireless provider will finally get online later this year but as early as now, Sprint is already offering very capable LTE-supporting devices so that its subscribers will already have access to 4G handsets once its LTE network goes online.

If you have been following the LTE saga of Sprint, then chances are you have already heard that Sprint is spearheading its LTE campaign with its version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, a handset that is similar to the one released by Verizon but except that Sprint’s baby is able to take advantage of the NFC chip in the handset and thereby offer the Google Wallet feature of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
However, for those Sprint subscribers that aren’t really too keen in having the latest Google flagship device and can settle for a mid-range device so long as they get to save a lot of dinero in the process, the wireless provider has got that pretty much covered with the addition of the LG Viper 4G to the 4G LTE lineup of the wireless provider. That being said, the LG Viper 4G can be considered as the best LTE smartphone on a budget in the lineup of the wireless provider because the handset can be had at a very popular online retailer for only a penny for that matter.
Of course, those interested in making the LG Viper 4G their mobile weapon of choice would need to sign a new two-year agreement with Sprint to get the LG Viper 4G at its listed price but this is such a small price to pay given the components and capabilities that the handset brings to the table.
People might mistake the LG Viper 4G for a rather useless smartphone because of its very affordable price point and mid-range categorization but f truth be told, the handset is anything but. The handset has the usual black-slab design commonly found in smartphones today but a mere look at the device gives you the impression that it is one solidly-built handset. Under the hood, the LG Viper 4G is powered by a dual-core processor running at 1.2 GHz and this gets support from a full gigabyte of RAM in delivering a snappy performance to the handset.
The internal storage of the handset comes up to just 4Gb,measly when compared to what other devices come with, but this is still expandable and Sprint throws in a 4G media card in the retail package of the LG Viper 4G for memory expansion. In terms of its display, the handset comes with a 4-inch capacitive multitouch panel made from Gorilla Glass that makes it resistant to scratches while the resolution of the display is pegged at 800 x 480 pixels. The camera department of the handset is a bit mediocre though with only a 5MP autofocus shooter found in its back panel while a VGA snapper graces its front bezel.
