Sprint intros the cheap LG Tribute Dynasty, already available on Boost Mobile for $59

Sprint today announced a brand new smartphone made by LG –
the LG Tribute Dynasty. As expected, the LG Tribute Dynasty is – just like its
predecessor – a low-end device that’s made for users who don’t want to spend more
than $100 on a new phone.


Sporting a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, the LG
Tribute Dynasty is powered by an octa-core MediaTek processor, coming with 2 GB
of RAM and 16 GB of expandable storage space. The handset further features 4G
LTE connectivity, a 5MP front-facing camera, an 8 MP rear camera, and a 2,500 mAh
removable battery. Unfortunately, the Tribute Dynasty …

Here are the first official pictures of the US-bound LG Tribute Dynasty

The LG Tribute Dynasty is the sequel to other budget-friendly smartphones launched by US carriers Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile such as the LG Tribute 5 and LG Tribute HD.

The user guide of the smartphone was spotted online a few days ago, which is how we learned the LG Tribute Dynasty (LG-SP200) will make its debut at Sprint, Boost and Virgin Mobile.

Little information is known about the Tribute Dynasty, but at least we know what the phone looks like thanks to the reputable leakster Evan Blass. Apparently, the Android smartphone will come with a rear-mounted …

LG Tribute Dynasty coming soon to Sprint, Boost and Virgin Mobile

A new budget-friendly LG smartphone may soon be debuted by major carrier Sprint, the Tribute Dynasty. Boost and Virgin Mobile will be getting the Android handset as well, probably starting next year.

Nothing is known about the unannounced LG Tribute Dynasty aside from its model number (LG SP200) and the date it’s been approved (October 27). The manual of the smartphone was recently spotted online, otherwise, we wouldn’t even know it exists.

It’s hard to believe that Sprint will introduce the LG Tribute Dynasty in the little time left until New Year’s Eve, so it would be safe to assume …

Bille Lourd posts a touching tribute on Carrie Fisher's birthday


Saturday marks Carrie Fisher’s first birthday since her death last December. The Star Wars star would have turned 61 on Oct. 21.

“You can be sure that Billie and I will have a moment in reflection on Carrie’s day,” Fisher’s brother, Todd Fisher, told E! News about his plans with Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd.

Jason Aldean surprises 'SNL' with Tom Petty 'Won't Back Down' tribute to Las Vegas


Saturday Night Live has always taken great care to strike the right tone after tragedy, and this week’s episode managed to delicately address a terrible week on multiple levels, but with a single, thoughtful stroke.

Instead of a cold open mocking the Donald Trump administration — breaking what must have been some kind of record streak — the first face we saw was that of country singer Jason Aldean, about to make his first public performance since leaving the stage last Sunday as the shooting rampage in Las Vegas began last Sunday night.

Len Wein, Wolverine co-creator, dead at 69, gets tribute from Hugh Jackman, others


One of the masters of the comic book universe, writer and editor Len Wein, has died at the age of 69, and the giants in his field took to Twitter on Sunday to remind us all of the talent we lost. 

Wein co-created well known characters like Swamp Thing and launched the new version of the X-Men in the ’70s, which included new characters co-created by Wein such as Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler, and Colossus. Those once relatively obscure characters were later turned into mainstream favorites by Hollywood, cementing Wein’s legacy beyond the realm of comic books.  Read more…

'SNL' pokes at a 'missing' Kellyanne Conway in Carmen Sandiego tribute


After a few media missteps, the once ubiquitous Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway has all but vanished from TV. 

So Saturday Night Live tasked a couple of precocious young children with answering the question, “Where in the World Is Kellyanne Conway?”
