LG K3 Starts Selling at Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile for Only $80

Starting today, interested individuals may choose the LG K3 as a device they can get from either of the two prepaid brands under Sprint: Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile. The device is available online for $79.99 and may be picked up from Boost and Virgin stores by next week.

As a budget-friendly device, the LG K3 is equipped with a 4.5-inch screen. It runs on a 1.1GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor with Adreno 304 GPU and 1GB of RAM. The phone has a memory capacity of 8GB, expandable by up to 32GB through a microSD card slot. A couple of cameras can be found on the phone: a 5MP rear camera as its main shooter and a secondary 0.3MP camera in front. The device has a Cheese Shutter feature built into it, which allows users to take a photo through voice commands. There's also an option to use Gesture Shot, Gesture Interval Shot, and the Selfie Light feature to capture photos more easily. Battery-wise, the K3 has a removable Li-Ion 1,940 mAh battery. Despite being an entry-level device, the K3 runs on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS upon release.

If you decide to get the K3 under Boost, you can pair it with one of their unlimited talk, text and data plans:

  • $35 with 2GB of 4G LTE high-speed data ($30 with auto pay)
  • $45 with 5GB of 4G LTE high-speed data ($40 with auto pay)  
  • $60 with unlimited 4G LTE high-speed data ($55 with auto pay)

Meanwhile, you can choose to get the K3 under Virgin Mobile; which also offers unlimited talk, text and data under these options:

  • $40/month with 4GB high-speed data
  • $50/month with 6GB high-speed data
Which carrier would you choose for the LG K3?

  1. Sounds like a nice starter! Here's hoping LG didn't block moving apps to sd on this marshmallow phone like they did with G5 and Stylo 2 or else storage will be a huge problem.

  2. Great, another junk phone to create more e-waste.

  3. I rather get a ZTE zmax 2 for 69.99

  4. This phone is really a 30 dollars. Markup to 80 is not cool.

    1. $80 is the early adopter price. It will probably be down to $40 in less than two months.

  6. I am guessing this is Sprint's version of the Tracfone LG Treasure.

    1. They are similar but not really the same model.

      The Treasure has a 5" screen, the K3 4.5".
      Treasure runs Lollipop, the K3 Marshmallow.
      The Treasure has a 5 MP front camera, the K3 0.3 MP.
      Treasue is GSM, Boost/Virgin K3 CDMA.

      The Treasure's specs seem to closely match those of the the LG K7.

    2. My mistake, I meant to say same as the LG Rebel on Tracfone.

  7. An $80 phone should have a 1.3Ghz quad core processor, 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM.

    Likewise, Sprint plans should be heavily discounted to factor in the universal disgust people feel towards their spotty native network.

    Unless they start offering 5GB for $20, I just don't see the point.

    If they want to build a base of customers, they have to at least do one thing better than the rest.

    Unfortunately for them, pricing is the only thing Sprint can fall back on.

  8. On Virgin Mobile's site it is saying it has a fingerprint sensor..is this true?

  9. Yes, I wouldn't be caught dead selecting a carrier based on price. Especially if I am getting good 4G service 95% of the time.

    1. "Yes, I wouldn't be caught dead selecting a carrier based on price"

      Nice to meet you, Mr. Verizon Customer!

  10. People your best option is the ZTE warp elite. Just port into boost from any non sprint carrier and its $29.99 out the door.
