LG’s Lucky LG16 smartphone costs less than $10 at Walmart


What would you regard as a cheap smartphone? It all depends on your circumstances, some would consider the Moto G 2015 to be a cheap handset, whilst others would be looking at a price in double figures as a good start. What about under $10? You may think its crazy, but LG’s TracFone Lucky LG16 costs just $9.82 from Walmart. Really. And if that isn’t enough of a bargain for you, shipping is included free of charge. 

For under ten bucks, you aren’t going to get a whole load of bells and whistles, but you do get full access to Google’s Play Store. Let’s take a look at what the TracFone Lucky LG16 brings to the table.


  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 3.8-Inch TFT display (320 x 480 resolution)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 Dual-core processor @ 1.2GHz
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB Internal storage
  • MicroSD card support (up to 32GB)
  • 3MP Rear camera
  • 3G network
  • Bluetooth 4.0 / WiFi
  • 1,540mAh battery

It’s just $9.82 off-contract, which includes shipping. As a throwaway or emergency backup handset, it’s going to be tough finding something as cheap and with as much functionality as the TracFone Lucky LG16. It’s sold out for the moment, but you can sign up for stock alerts on the Walmart website.

    Which networks does this work on? Can you use “pay as you go” sims?

    Tracfone has locked these to not work on Tmobile or ATT, so don’t buy one thinking to activate it on one of those carriers.
