LG Marquee ( Boost Mobile)

 

Although the Marquee phone was released just last month, you might have seen it before on Sprint's network (and perhaps you saw it even before then, since the LG Marquee is Sprint's version of the LG Optimus Black ).

The LG Marquee has a svelte and ultralight design that complements its stunning Nova display. It has a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, Bluetooth, GPS, and Wi-Fi. Call quality is great.

I don't dig the LG Marquee's sluggish performance and oddball Mobile ID customization feature.

The LG Marquee's slim design and jam-packed feature set make it Boost Mobile's flagship phone. But its high price (even without a contract) and slow processor will make it a tough sell.

Editor's Choice!

LG Marquee (Boost Mobile)

 

Boost Mobile has a number of good smartphones, but they all seem to lack a certain wow factor. The $279.99 LG Marquee probably won't make anyone cancel their current contract and rush over to Boost, but its exceptionally bright, rich display delivers a...

Super-bright screen. Thin design. Comfortable to hold and use. Good call quality

Bluetooth audio issues while watching videos

The LG Marquee has a bright, beautiful screen and plenty of Android power for Boost Mobile users.

LG Marquee ( Sprint)

 

LG is so confident about the LG Marquee's fashion credentials that the company debuted the phone not at a tech trade show, but during New York Fashion Week. And no wonder, because the Marquee is essentially the Sprint version of the LG Optimus Black ,...

The LG Marquee has a svelte and ultralight design that complements its stunning Nova display. It ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and has a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, Bluetooth, GPS, and Wi-Fi. Call quality is fantastic.

We have mixed feelings about the LG Marquee's oddball Sprint ID customization feature, and the Marquee is not the phone for you if you want 4G.

With its fashionable good looks and affordable price, the LG Marquee is one of our top choices among Android phones for Sprint if you don't need 4G.

LG Marquee

 

The Android-powered LG Marquee boasts the brightest display of any smartphone, but it falls flat in other areas.

Sprint hopes the LG Marquee will entice budget-conscious shoppers seeking a slim and attractive Android handset. However, it's not the best bargain. The HTC EVO 4G Shift ($99) and Samsung Nexus S 4G ($29) offer 4G network access and faster overall...

LG Marquee (Sprint)

 

The Marquee is a dual-band EV-DO Rev. A (850/1900 MHz) device with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. There's no 4G WiMAX support. The Marquee also works as a mobile hotspot for up to five devices with the appropriate plan. Call quality was good, if not spectacular;...

Incredibly bright screen. Very thin design. Good call quality

No 4G or dual-core processor. Buggy video playback and voice dialing

The LG Marquee stands out with its ultra-bright glass touch screen and slim design, although some performance issues mar the overall experience.

LG's Optimus lineup has produced some outstanding hardware. On the high end you have the Optimus 2x, the first smartphone to feature a dual-core processor and the Optimus 3D, the world's first 3D handset. With the Optimus One line, LG redefined our...

As Android phones become more and more prevalent in the marketplace, it shouldn't come as a surprise that there is fragmentation of the operating system, in terms of device power. On the one hand there are [...]

The NOVA display technology gives the Marquee one of the brightest screens I’ve ever tested ; Excellent battery life for an Android smartphone

Slow; nearly every application of this phone has to pause while processing, and constantly ; No 4G on Sprint may help conserve battery life, but if you want 3G-only for the price of the Marquee you can buy a brand new iPhone 4 for Sprint, both for $100...

Headlining Sprint - LG Marquee Reviewed

 

The Marquee is the latest addition to Sprint's entry level line up and it's quite the addition. The slim, sleek design of the Marquee really makes it stand out in the entry level market. But are design and price enough to sway people into buying an...

Overall the LG Marquee ranks in as a 'Good' smartphone for the market it's aimed at. It features some nice hardware and the latest software, with a much lower price point. The Marquee is actually very comparable to the Galaxy S released just a year ago...

Attractive and sleek, the Sprint LG Marquee is light on the frills. The LG overlay lets users keep customized folders for applications, and the phone offers Sprint ID customization. Its 5-megapixel camera delivers good-quality shots and contains a...

"GREAT PHONE!!! :-)"

 

This is an awesome little phone that does what's it's supposed to do and more. The phone will need to be rooted to unlock it's full potential but once that's done you're off to the races. Mine is running at 1.4GHz right now and IT WILL support the...

Light, slim, FAST, cheap, and on the Boost shrinkage plan. You can't beat $40 a month which is where I'm at.

Battery life. I just bought 2 extra 1800mah batteries and keep a charger in the car. No worries.
