LG Spectrum 2 Review (Verizon)


We've been seeing a lot of really good high-end handsets lately (like the Galaxy Note II and the HTC DROID DNA ), but all the while, LG has been putting out some solid mid-range phones. Not too long ago, we reviewed the LG Optimus L9 , a mid-range...

What can I say? LG has made a strong showing in the mid-range field once again. I can't find anything to really complain about as far a mid-range smartphones go – no, you don't have the best of the best in terms of hardware, but for $99 on a two-year...

LG Spectrum 2 ( Verizon Wireless)


The wait for a decent LG phone on Verizon is finally over with the Spectrum 2.

The LG Spectrum 2 has NFC and wireless charging capabilities, fast 4G LTE speeds, and a camera packed with features.

The Spectrum 2 comes preloaded with too much bloatware, and has a thick profile and a poor audio speaker.

With its winning combination of a reasonable price tag, wireless features, and solid performance, the Spectrum 2 is an excellent Verizon handset in its price range.

LG Spectrum 2 (Verizon Wireless)


The original LG Spectrum was a high-end smartphone with a high-end price tag. Fast forward less than a year later, and we have the LG Spectrum 2. It's designed to compete with the rest of the heavy hitters in Verizon's lineup, and in most regards, it...

Beautiful display. Fast performance. Good price

Doesn't run Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). Bulky

The LG Spectrum 2 for Verizon Wireless gets you a first-rate smartphone for about half the price as other top picks.

LG Spectrum 2 (Verizon Wireless)


The Spectrum 2 is a solid midrange Android phone with a bright HD screen and built-in wireless charging, but it could use a Jelly Bean performance boost.

Sturdy design with comfortable soft-touch back; Bright display; Wireless charging capability; NFC stickers make it easy to change settings

Performance suffers from lag; Running old Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS; Below-average battery life

Click to EnlargeFor $99, the LG Spectrum 2 offers smartphone shoppers a big and bright HD screen, wireless charging capability and nifty NFC stickers for toggling settings with a tap. We also like the sharp camera and built-in video editing app. And...

LG Spectrum 2 Review


With the Holiday Season fast approaching, Verizon has introduced the new LG Spectrum 2, which is a follow-up to the original LG Spectrum that was released earlier this year. This time around, the device is more in line to compete with other mid-level...

Attractive price ; 4.7” True HD IPS display ; Good call quality

Camera quality is lacking ; Notification LED is part of the power button ; Device feels larger than it should be

We feel that the $100 contract price of the LG Spectrum 2 is a bargain, as the original Spectrum was twice that when it was released earlier this year. This newest model not only includes a larger 4.7” True HD IPS display, but has a faster 1.5GHz...

LG Spectrum 2


higher end features for a low price, large IPS HD display, good call quality and data speeds

Not the most attractive design, battery life is just OK, ships with Android 4.0 rather than 4.1

We often suggest buying the best phone you can with your contract since the phone's price is small compared to the cost of a 2 year contract. In the case of the Spectrum 2, you're not giving up much by going with this $99 smartphone vs. $199...

LG Spectrum 2 review


It has been quite a year for LG, which despite its top spot among dumbphone sales has had a bit of a difficult time making it big in the Android world. Faced with stiff competition from fellow Korea...

The Spectrum 2 offers respectable specs, decent performance, and a lovely display. Its bulky design, though, makes it feel like yesterday's leftovers, especially when you consider what competitors like HTC and Samsung are doing with their entry- and...

LG Spectrum 2 Android Smartphone Review: Specs, Features and Price


LG is trying really hard to get its smartphone market share increase. Now here we got another smartphone from LG which is really impressive with its specs and kind of features. LG Spectrum 2 is the new smartphone with ...

LG Spectrum 2 Review


Mid-range smartphones are a mixed bag -- most of them are decent, but at the end of the day, they usually still leave something to be desired. However, every once in a while, a mid-range device will come along that's worthy of its accolades and has...

At any normal time throughout the year, I would say that the $100 subsidized price tag of the LG Spectrum 2 is worth every penny, but considering how you can get a Samsung Galaxy S III for next to nothing during the holiday season, I’d be lying if I...
