LG Marquee from Boost Mobile runs on the solid and trusted Android 2.3 Gingerbread Operating System. The Marquee features an impressive NOVA screen to boot. Users who get their hands on a Marquee will want to sign up for Boost Mobile Shrinkage, don’t worry it is free! To date, the LG Marquee takes the crown of being the most expensive phone from Boost Mobile. With that said, lets dig a little deeper…

Is the LG Marquee really worth $279?

LG Marquee phones are ready with a crystal clear 5-Megapixel rear camera along with a 2-Megapixel front facing camera, which is the suspected reason why the retail price is over $270. Your pictures will be easy to take whether photo-snapping face pics or events around you. This phone will keep users connected with their Google accounts and users may enjoy all the extra utilities they offer for account holders.

If you are looking to use this phone as more of a business phone, it easily connects to VPN (Virtual Private Networks) and WiFi connections. SWYPE is officially featured with this phone, so if you prefer this style of keyboarding, the phone could be a great fit. Especially useful for new customers to Boost Mobile, who are already familiar with the keyboarding utility.

Unfortunately, there is no HDMI connector with this phone, which is disappointing given the offered price from Boost Mobile. Overall – anyone upgrading to this phone or first time users with Boost should expect to be happy with their new Marquee.

What is the main difference between the LG Marquee and ZTE Warp?

There will be some recent users who have upgraded to the ZTE Warp and are wondering what the difference is between this phone and the ZTE Warp. The main difference between the ZTE Warp & LG Marquee is the two cameras exclusive to the latter phone. The Warp only has one camera, which means face chatting with SKYPE or other apps may not necessarily be convenient. This is not a huge difference, but is a make it or break it type of feature for some. Keep in mind the LG Marquee is smaller in size compared to the ZTE Warp.
