Yes this is the recently released LTE version. Yes it is HD (1280 x 720 resolution, 5.0" screen)

Planning on activating it on the $30 T-mobile prepaid plan.

After having two screens crack on Verizon post-paid plans and paying full price for a replacement phone I am finally done with you Verizon.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

EDIT: Never mind - different phone entirely. Leaving my poor post up, however, to keep anyone else from making the same mistake.

Not the same phone, that's the C, which is neither LTE or HD

Good price on a high-feature cheap phone, but .... I wouldn't expect any aftermarket support from the modding community.

And if you say this is the wrong phone, then my answer is "Then XDA doesn't even have a place for this phone, and that further reinforces my point." ;-)

No AT&T LTE bands on this. one of the phone reviewers said it's just HSPA+. LTE works on T-mobile. can anyone clarify.

OP, I'm giving this a thumbs up for a solid deal. But wanted to give anyone else a heads up that Walmart has a similar(ish) phone for $50 more. The ZTE Zmax. I ended up purchasing the Zmax because it has ALL instead of most of the T-Mobile bands (including the new 700mhz support via upcoming software update). And because it has double the internal storage and 2GB of RAM which will help make Android run a lot smoother. Same CPU and 720p resolution, but the Zmax has a larger screen. The 5.7" screen size is a plus for me but might be a negative to others. Still, the extra cellular radios plus double storage and RAM makes the ZTE worth the extra $50 to me.
