The Ring and the Prevail 2 are fairly low end devices by modern standards. The run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and have a 1.4 GHz single core processor, 5 MP camera and a 4 inch 480 x 800px screen and they don't support LTE. Frankly, I think both are overpriced at $179.99, especially compared with Virgin Mobile's LG Optimus F3 which is also 179.99 but has a dual core processor and LTE. $129.99 is a much more reasonable price and I expect will see more price cutting with the Prevail 2 and the Ring.
I don't know if this deal is available nationwide or only in certain markets or possibly only in a singe Walmart store in Sacramento. If any readers happen to see this deal at a different Walmart please let us know in a comment.
