Reviews and the future

The LG Octane was a very basic phone that was launched as a CDMA device for Verizon Wireless. Nevertheless, for most customers, it got the job done but was later discontinued in the year , replaced by smarter models like LG s android smartphone range. Its lack of uniform audio jacks, radio and secondary camera were some of the reasons responsible for its low sales. In addition, the fact that it did not have a GSM variant did not let it reach a wider customer base. However, now much more advanced and better models from LG are available in every possible price and feature range
