UK supermarket Asda is now selling the LG Prada 3.0 Mobile phone for as little as £149, that is the cheapest dual-core smartphone in the country, narrowly out-pricing the Sony Xperia U sold for £150 by Three (with an extra £10 top up).
The LG Prada 3.0 remains an attractive alternative given that it is available SIM Free and unbranded. It features a 4.3in 800 x 480 pixels 800-nits display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a microSD card slot, a dual-core TI OMAP4430 system-on-chip clocked at 1GHz, an 8-megapixel camera, Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread (with Android 4.0 ICS coming) and NFC capabilities.
LG highlighted the PRADA’s signature Saffiano pattern to the back as well as the company’s signature Floating Mass Technology which it says, “optically enhancing the thinness of its already impressive 8.5mm depth”.
In a nutshell, it is a cracking deal, especially if you’re after a mainstream smartphone that doesn’t cost the earth. It’s hard to believe that the phone went on sale for £31 per month at launch and cost £430 at launch.
