The LG Spirit 4G Ms870 is a fairly cheap device that packs the good, and by that I mean it did well to put a 4G speed on board. It managed to be quick onto the scene with that which no doubt pleased its owners. Because it is not in the upper echelon of mobiles out there, to say the least, it has proven to be popular to customize, and why not? There’s no reason to not equip this puppy with any sweet Rom’s and the latest apps that would otherwise not be available to the user.
