LG Tribute Dynasty Coming to Sprint, Now Available on Boost Mobile

lg-tribute-dynasty
A new smartphone model is making its way to Sprint and Boost Mobile.

As announced on Sprint's website, the LG Tribute Dynasty is coming soon to the carrier and its prepaid subsidiary. On Boost Mobile, however, the Tribute Dynasty is already available starting today.

The device is a mid-priced smartphone that comes with a 5-inch display with a 1280x720 resolution. From within, the phone runs on an Octa-Core MediaTek MT6750 processor with 2GB of RAM , 16GB of internal storage, and a microSD card for memory expansion.

On the back, there is an 8-megapixel rear-camera with LED flash and a front-facing 5-megapixel camera for selfies. A fingerprint reader is also available just below the rear-facing camera. The phone also includes a removable 2,500mAh battery.

So let's talk pricing. Since the Tribute Dynasty is already available on Boost Mobile, you can get it for $59.99. If you're porting your number to Boost, however, you can get the phone for $9.99.

As for Sprint, the Tribute Dynasty is still slated to arrive on January 12th. By then, you can purchase the device for $25 down and a monthly lease payment of $5 for the next 18 months.

The LG Tribute Dynasty is perhaps the first device to be announced this year. It has even been announced ahead of CES 2018, which is slated to take place on January 9th until the 12th.

  1. Tribute line on Boost has been customer favorable with each release, this is a pleasant development at a reasonable price point, especially the port in price.

    1. The Tribute is not a customer favorite, its the cheapest phone you can get on Boost when porting-in. Nobody "wants" this phone, its the only phone the segment can afford. Its the same Tribute phone they release every year with a tiny spec bump. Worse, its not even running Android 8.0. This is why Boost/Sprint is losing to MetroPCS.

    2. "Nobody "wants" this phone,"

      Agreed! I always thought it silly to pay $50/month-$600/year for service on a $59 phone.

      Those who can't afford a decent phone need to be on Mint Sim, Red Pocket or the like & use the extra savings toward a nice midrange phone or better.

    3. I had an LG HD Tribute in the past on Boost in the past and had a good experience except for the lousy cameras.

      At DataWhinferGuy, I use whatever phone and carrier I want to. You don't get decide what people should do plus cheap phones are actually pretty solid now.

  2. LG is returning to its specs at a good price practice. ZTE put pressure on LG but the 6" phones have unstable susceptibility to crashing, gorilla glass shattering, among other things, Boost is really aggressive since the failed merger...

  3. problem with sprint/boost/virgin mobile phones is that they are reletivly stock android when you get them. upon activation, sprint downloads all kinds of spamware/junk apps onto your phone without your consent. worse is that this junk can't be deleted or disabled. evn though i can get good coverage in my area, i avoid sprint brands because of this annoying/disgusting practice. unlocked phones on at&t or t-mobile let you control what is added to your phone.

    1. The apps that are downloaded can be deleted. It is only the preinstalled apps that cannot be deleted. I have removed the downloaded apps may times. Not saying this is a good practice. It's inconvenient to have to remove apps you didn't want downloaded, but it can be done. With Android it is not possible to completely lock downloaded 3rd party apps from removal. That has to be done when they flash the ROM so that those apps are part of the ROM... Even then some can be removed by rooting the phone.

  4. Compare every price point against Metro/T-Mobile the Sprint/Boost deal is better, no one is getting Oreo at least until June on the prepaid market. Some consumers have a blind bias to Sprint and don't see the economics and the savings, thus the reason #4 Sprint nixed the merger. T-Mobile is on the rise bit surely not a threat to #2 AT&T.

    1. At very point?

      MetroPCS has the superiority of the GSM world, and also much better coverage than Sprint/Boost. If you are going to claim Boost is better in every way, you really need to let in the exceptions where it is not better.

      "Some consumers have a blind bias to Sprint and don't see the economics and the savings, thus the reason #4 Sprint nixed the merger."

      Huh? I doubt "consumer bias" had any place in the many reasons Sprint made this decision.

    2. Price point is a wash. Both MetroPCS and Boost have $50 unlimited plans. Boils down to coverage and speed which is area specific.

  5. Beyond the Blade ZTE Blade ZMax Metro specs fail, Boost sells phones in retail outlets at discounts. Metro exclusively sells their products with few if any discounts. Metro never gives a free upgrade phone. Metro doesn't sell prepaid cards in major retail outlets discounted. Metro has no customer service, care, nor satisfaction. $60 phone upon release, fingerprint reader, octa core,HD, only a pessimist has a problem with that product. See if $60 purchases that device on Metro...

  6. Prepaid is code for low end market, last year to get a Dynasty device you spend $100+, the failed merger is beneficial to the consumers. Now pure competition forces Metro to offer perks it would never offer had the merger went through. Sprint is the reason consumers received free mid range upgrade phones Fed Ex'd to them. Metro does not do that. 16 gig devices are a small price to pay for a discounted phone. Verizon was made for seem less service at a premium not a discount. Hyundai/KIA make nice vehicles, not BMW equivalents...

    1. I switched from Sprint to Verizon last year and the service is no better. I can't even send an MMS from inside a building on Verizon. It works well enough outdoors but so did Sprint. On the other hand, I've had dropped calls and calls cutting in and out on both Verizon and Sprint but on T-mobile my calls were completely stable and this was a few years ago. Also, BMWs are very uncomfortable.

  7. Personally as a once upon a time Metro consumer they were decent because one was told about the shortcomings of Boost, reluctantly I switched and have enjoyed great service and perks from Boost, far as Metro, they overcharged and stood away from their products and devices, numerous occasions disputes were witnessed in store when paying bills. Again Metro can't sell through retailers because they gouge consumers on device prices and exclusively sell their own devices, thus the monopoly forces the consumer to have no option but the price Metro sets. This month alone my $30 bill got reduced to below $10 due to Boost Dealz, I get way more bang for the buck than any promotion Metro is forced to offer. Furthermore Metro lacks customer care sensitivity just like Verizon. That much can be attributed to AT&T, consumers are respected there as is the case with Boost, T-Mobile/Metro rip loyal customers off perpetually, Boost is pretty good service for the #4 company in the big 4 marketplace

    1. It's part of that crazy logic that "anything that costs more than I am willing to pay must be inferior."

      Many use it here to say that $40 burners are at least as good as thousand-dollar iPhones.

  9. So far 2 straight days of Boost offering substantial value, prior to the announcement of the Dynasty? News on T-Mobile increasing stores? I don't need another store I need increased value in phone service
    #4 is beating #3 easily
    Again, Sprint was taking over T-Mobile
    What underdog nixes a merger? A powerful one ie. Sprint/Boost

    1. Sorry, with Boost being on by far the worst network of the four, any claims of Boost offering "substantial value" comes across as rather subjective.

      What's worse than a Sprint-bashing troll is a "Boost booster" who always recommends the distant 4th choice, distant 4th quality network as being far far better than it really is.

      Delete
    2. Sprint "powerful"?

      From the Washington Post:

      "Nov 4, 2017 · Sprint, meanwhile, has been a straggler, ceding its position as third-largest carrier in 2015 to T-Mobile. Despite controlling a considerable swath of commercial spectrum — the invisible airwaves required to carry cellphone signals — Sprint's network is considered the weakest of the bunch."

      A straggler. A self-made "underdog" by purposely choosing not to let customers use its vast spectrum.

      From BGR:

      "The only bad cell company is Sprint....Well, times they are a-changing. The latest comprehensive report actually has T-Mobile as the overall winner, with Verizon and AT&T within licking distance as second and third. Sprint, meanwhile, is really just trying to remind everyone it exists."

      The only places where you really find stuff about how great Sprint is are in Sprint press reports and advertising ...

      But go ahead and believe that "Sprint is 99% as good as Verizon" stuff...go right ahead....

    Metro is already behind. While they offer last year's CoolPad and Alcatel, Boost already bolstered an already better valued line up. Tributes have been priced as low as $20 in 2016. $20 gets a lesser quality device on Metro, $60 gets a J3 Emerge/Moto E at Metro, no thank you I can do better at Boost

  11. In conclusion Metro is a great company if there is no Boost option,suggesting Metro is clearly better is just group think, Boost gives free upgrades directly, discounts from various retailers, the choice of Boost customer care or that of the parent company, bill payment made easy at CVS, Family Dollar, among others, Boost Dealz, credit to accounts for proven disputes, Metro fails. Compare these scenarios, Boost customer making 6 figures gets service in an office building while contract users on Verizon lose signal versus T-Mobile customer in contract purchases ZTE ZMAX PRO with insurance and after 5 repairs replacements gets frustrated and deserts T-Mobile for prepaid Metro. Once the person learns Boost is the value option, you think she won't port the number over?

    1. MetroPCS has far more subscribers than Boost, and the gap is getting wider. So I guess most people who shop both don't agree that Boost is a better overall value.

    2. "In conclusion Metro is a great company if there is no Boost option,suggesting Metro is clearly better is just group think"

      Not at all. I objectively looked at such matters as coverage, and Metro is indeed much better than Boost. With Boost, you are 30% more likely to have e no connection at all than with MetroPCS.

      "Once the person learns Boost is the value option, you think she won't port the number over"

      Of course she won't, once she looks at the tiny coverage area.

    3. Phony math, and “tiny” description is completely false. Everyone can see the huge coverage area where everyone can get a connection. The Boost map is linked to this site. People here aren’t stupid.

      Delete
    4. Real math... The Boost map on this site shows a very small coverage area. "Tiny" is fair because Boost coverage is much smaller than Verizon, ATT, and even T-Mobile.

      You aren't fooling anyone.

    5. "MetroPCS has far more subscribers than Boost, and the gap is getting wider. So I guess most people who shop both don't agree that Boost is a better overall value."

      Facts are stubborn things. Boost is so far behind in all ways, but that doesn't stop the "Boost booster" from claiming the opposite of what is true.

  14. according to LG's site about the dynasty, it will be on 7.1.2, which of course isn't Oreo, but it's at least a bump up from 7.1.1 which has been the highest so far. that was about the sprint version, but it should be the same for

  16. Most people think Verizon and AT&TT are better...most also think Listerine is better than generic store brands...beliefs cure as well as kill...T-Mobile is just the poor man's Verizon... thank you Sprint for not doing that merger...purgatorial service would be the result were Sprint not present to keep T-Mobile's service honest, discounts were nonexistent until Sprint, if not mistaken same said Sprint was desired for its burgeoning network, its beneficial though because Boost is good to it's loyal customers as many of us attest silently in awe of the group think sheeple who hand over money to T-Mobile for service.

    1. Burgeon Mobile?

      Sprint was desired for the resources it was squandering. A languishing effort that keeps its most useful resources locked up instead of utilized does not a "burgeon" make.

    2. If you pay for the other 3 you get a much better network. That's not a bad deal.

    3. T-Mobile has won many J.D. Powers and the latest HarrisX customer service and customer satisfaction awards. Subscribers rate it highly for Value, year after year. E.G., three years in a row #1 in customer satisfaction in the Consumer Reports survey. Verizon and AT&T ranked at the very bottom, just above Sprint.

  17. Just got this phone today. VERY nice for the money. However, it is just a power button on the back, no fingerprint scanner.
