LG X Power Now Available Through Sprint and Boost Mobile

sprint-lg-x-power
Earlier today, Sprint announced the latest smartphone model to join in their roster of devices for Sprint and Boost Mobile. The LG X Power is a mid-range Android smartphone that promises up to two days of use with its powerful 4,100 mAh battery. Thanks to its battery, the device is said to last up to 33 hours of talk time. The device also supports Fast Charging technology which, according to LG, charges the device twice as much as the normal speed. Apart from the battery, the X Power has a 1.8GHz Octa-Core Helio P10 MediaTek processor, which marks the device as the first smartphone from Sprint to operate with this processor. 

The X Power has a 5.3-inch HD touchscreen display, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot for expandable storage. The phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.


In addition to announcing the X Power, Sprint has launched new unlimited plans that customers may choose from. These plans include:

  • $60/month Unlimited Freedom (Sprint) - comes with unlimited talk, text, 4G LTE data, and optimized streaming, video, gaming and music. Second line comes in at $40/month while lines 3-10 are at $30/month each.
  • $80/month Unlimited Freedom Premium (Sprint) - same as $60/month Unlimited Freedom but includes higher quality video experience.
  • $50/month Unlimited Unhook'd (Boost Mobile) - comes with unlimited talk, text, 4G LTE data, and optimized streaming videos, gaming and music. Succeeding lines are at $30/month each (up to five lines additional).

If you are interested in getting the X Power, Sprint is making it easy for you to own the device through Boost Mobile, its no-contract MVNO. You can choose from two options, including a choice of getting the device at $129.99 (plus tax) today or through Installment Billing starting Friday, Sept. 23. After making convenient monthly payments, the device will already be yours. There are some qualified customers who are eligible to get the X Power at $0 down (plus tax) and just $9 per month for 24 months.

    2. I would use an LG. Hardlocked phones aren't that bad. Sprint is that bad though. Ringplus has some nice plans though for the price.

  2. Doesn't have a fingerprint sensor, so I throw it in the trash.

  5. looks great. does it have a removable battery? Is this the same LG Power as on Cricket? Can't do CDMA, so the networks are a deal breaker for me anyhow. But Big battery phones are a great trend I hope continues. You actually can use all those awesome functions freely not worrying your battery will be dead before the end of the day.

    1. The battery is non removable. It's the same basic phone (body, screen, etc) as the Cricket one but the Boost version has a faster processor and more RAM so it should perform better.

  6. The Mediatek processor is unstable and inefficient. Lots of quality problems. Boost should have used the Qualcomm processor LG put in other versions.

    1. Mediatek has been getting better and better. The MT6755 outperforms the Snapdragon SD 615 on most benchmarks Mediatek Helio P10 MT6755 SoC Benchmarks - NotebookCheck.net Tech.

      INTO THE TRASH IT GOES!

  10. Does this phone even have root?

    If not, it's a complete non-starter.

    1. No newly released phone has root until someone buys it and finds a root method that works on it. The LG X Power might get rooted or it might not. It's too early to say.

  11. Locked to Boost/Sprint = no buy

    I will never buy a locked phone and I urge anyone that reads this to avoid giving business to any company that wants to lock you into service. Sprint has one of the worst anti-consumer policies when it comes to BYOD. That's why they're in last place.

    1. Sprint has terrible coverage. Offering Americans no bars of data in most of the territory of the lower 48 states.... Significantly behind AT&T and Verizon, and definitely behind T-Mobile now as well.

      I think this poor fourth place showing of Sprint as a Data Network has more to do with their problems than their policy on bring your own device.

      Because no matter how you get your phone onto Sprint, it's pretty hard to use it compared to on other networks.

      Really there are probably several reasons why Sprint is failing to live up to anything.

    2. Sprint's overall problem is that they've been at the mercy of complete retards who don't know how to run a struggling mobile business anywhere except into the ground.

      They're a lost cause.

      I mean, they've had years to light a fire under their asses and get moving on building a competitive native network.

      But since they're still not up to par, and with FEDmageddon killing the only value Sprint had within the past few years, it's safe to say that the SS Sprint just won't recover from intentionally ramming itself into various icebergs.

  12. I along with some others are seeing what we can for a root on it, so far nothing has worked for me...their is an exploit out that could possibly get it there but I have to work out some probs as far as compiling it goes. But I do have one of these to mess with and the latest version of kingroot does in fact cause a kernel panic and reboot on the device but no root sticks yet nor does a temp root with king user I think it will get root soon enough though at least I hope myself or someone out there will figure it out.
