The G Vista is a mid-range version of LG's flagship phone, a larger variant with similar looks and weaker specs for folks looking to save a little bit of money. Now AT&T has announced that it will offer the G Vista 2 as an exclusive in a matter of weeks. And this time LG is throwing in a stylus.

This year's follow-up comes with a 5.7-inch display, a Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 3000mAh battery, and Android 5.1.

As you would expect, this is a step down from the G4's Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 16MP camera. Still, it's nice to see the battery hold firm at 3000mAh. The 5.7-inch screen is also larger than the G4's 5.5—just don't expect a comparable screen resolution. The G Vista 2's is HD, not QHD.

This is not a budget device, so you're looking at paying $450 altogether. Or you can sign a two-year contract and put down $50 if you're still into that sort of thing.
