The arrival of a brand new flagship handset (in this case, the LG Optimus G Pro) always gives rise to some big discounts and it is not surprising to find the LG Optimus 4X HD for £14 per month from BuyMobilePhones on a two year contract with O2.
The total cost of ownership of the device is £336; in comparison, the SIM free cost of the phone is £250. This means that rather than buying the phone outright, you may just as well pay a monthly fee and get a SIM with some goodies for £86 extra (that’s less than £4 per month). The plan is good enough for very light users.
You get 50 minutes, unlimited texts, 100MB data allowance, tethering, O2 Priority Moments plus unlimited UK Wi-Fi via O2 and BT Openzone.
As for the phone itself, it is still a very decent one. You get a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3, a 4.7in HD-IPS LCD display with a 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution, 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, NFC, Android 4.0 ICS, an 8-megapixel camera and a microSD card slot.
