LG Spectrum

 

Let's just get this out of the way, shall we? If the LG Spectrum looks familiar, you're not imagining things. It may have been a highlight at the company's CES press event last month, but the handset bears more than a passing resemblance to its older,...

Stunning display ; Fast LTE speeds ; Good image quality

Short battery life ; Boring design ; No ICS yet

The LG Spectrum offers LTE, fine performance and a great screen, but the short battery life makes it a tough sell.

LG Spectrum (Verizon Wireless) review: LG Spectrum (Verizon Wireless)

 

The LG Spectrum has fast LTE speeds, a dual-core processor, Android 2.3, and lots of HD video features, including a stellar 4.5-inch HD display.

Call quality and camera quality are inconsistent, and the Spectrum's interface can be cumbersome at times.

The LG Spectrum's clean design brings preppy style to some of the fastest 4G LTE data speeds around. The smartphone's attention to HD is admirable, but a few interface and performance flaws could scare away some.

LG Spectrum (Verizon Wireless)

 

There are several themes that came out of CES 2012, where Verizon first showed off the LG Spectrum, one of its latest 4G LTE superphones. LTE was one of these themes, of course, and the Spectrum delivers. HD, as in high-definition video, was another....

LG Spectrum Review

 

Yes, the $199 LG Spectrum has a high-quality 720p display, fast 4G LTE speeds, and a sharp camera. However, the industrial design doesn't impress as much as the ultra thin $199 Droid RAZR, and we prefer the Super AMOLED display and newer and sleeker...

Fast 4G LTE speeds, Large, bright 720p display, Crisp 8-MP camera

Short battery life, Clunky interface, No dedicated Search button, Flap covers USB port

LG Spectrum review

 

LG's play for US smartphone market share is simple: bring over the popular Optimus LTE from Europe, and tweak it for different carriers. The $199.99 (with a two-year contract) LG Spectrum for Verizon is the second such handset, after the Nitro HD for...

Excellent 720p display ; Fast LTE connectivity ; Solid call quality

Body feels and looks ugly ; LG's UI skin is an eyesore ; Bad battery life

LG's playing catch-up on Verizon, and the Spectrum is its comeback card

Spectrum by LG Review

 

Welcome to Verizon's most high-definition LTE device on the market right now, the Spectrum by LG, complete with a massive True HD IPS display at 4.5-inches and 720 x 1280 pixels. It's certainly not a short device, made to fit in the palm of your...

This is certainly one of the top five LG smartphones ever to be released, and definitely beats out the LG Revolution released last year with LTE as the best LG device on Verizon right this minute. It's relatively sleek, light, and has a fabulous...

LG Spectrum (Verizon Wireless)

 

The LG Spectrum is a 4G LTE (700MHz) phone with dual-band EV-DO Rev. A (850/1900MHz) and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. It also works as a 4G mobile hotspot for up to 10 devices simultaneously. On a rainy day in NYC, (which can sometimes affect data performance),...

Massive, ultra-sharp 720p screen. Great battery life. Sharp camera and camcorder. Thin and light for an LTE phone

Sluggish gaming benchmarks. Some voice quality issues

The LG Spectrum is a powerful, high-end Android phone that offers Verizon subscribers good value despite some troubling benchmark results.

LG Spectrum vs Motorola DROID RAZR

 

We're going to have the LG Spectrum compete against the handset we proclaimed to have the best design out of all the smartphones released last year – the Motorola DROID RAZR. Sharing a good amount of commonalities, like their 4G LTE connectivity and...

LG Spectrum vs Samsung Galaxy Nexus

 

Being the new kid on the block, the LG Spectrum has a lot to prove if it stands any chance in trying to stay afloat amidst a sea crowded top-notch 4G LTE smartphones from Verizon. Without hesitation, we're pitting it against the most memorable...

LG Spectrum Review

 

The LG Spectrum is stuffed with all of the lovable qualities of a contemporary high-end Android smartphone. However, will it have enough allure to rise over some of the benchmarking devices we've seen already? Or will it simply left out to dry for its...
