LG has joined the Windows Phone crowd with a budget smartphone called the Lancet, which is a Verizon-exclusive at US launch. As a Verizon model, the phone’s stand-out feature is the ability to use the network’s Advanced Calling 1.0 service, which is said to provide higher-quality audio by using a cellular network for voice calls.
The Lancet is a 4.5″ (854 x 480) phone running Windows Phone 8.1 on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. It has 8GB of storage, a 2,100mAh battery and an 8MP rear camera.
Verizon is selling the phone now, for $120 off contract.
