Cnet

Lacks LTE, but a strong prepaid contender

from Cnet

For $50 off-contract, the LG Optimus L70 makes a few compromises. You'll have to make do without a blazing-fast processor and despite having decent 4G speeds, it does lack LTE. But at that price range, the device does offer a lot -- especially compared with its other 4G prepaid competitors.
