LG Viper 4G LTE

 

They said it wouldn't last. And they -- pundits, analysts, bloggers, GSM fanatics -- were right. WiMAX, that flavor of 4G found in the 2500MHz band, has proven to be more of a hindrance than help during Sprint's transition from underdog to...

NFC and Google Wallet ; Mostly stock Android ; Reasonably fast performance ; Tempting price

Ships with dated Gingerbread OS ; Unappealing design

Even without a live LTE network, Sprint's first 4G device is a smart budget buy for current Sprint subscribers content with the state of their 3G service.

LG Viper (Sprint)

 

Back at CES in January, Sprint announced its first two 4G LTE smartphones, the LG Viper and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus . Both will be out April 22, but for this review we're going to focus on the Viper. Touted as an eco-friendly midrange device, it is...

The LG Viper is eco-friendly, records superb video in 1080p HD, and comes with an NFC chip that lets you wirelessly transfer data to other NFC-enabled devices.

The LG Viper can only run on Sprint's 3G network for now, and audio quality is subpar as well.

Although many of its features still won't be available by the time it hits stores, the LG Viper is a reliable, environmentally conscious device with an excellent camera.

Eco-friendly design ; Affordable ; Solid performance

Not running the latest version of Android ; No LTE network

The LG Viper has a stylish, eco design with a speedy processor, but you may not be able to utilize its 4G LTE speeds any time soon.

Despite a tough-sounding name, Sprint's first LTE device is a cute-yet-powerful, environmentally friendly phone.

Fast. Future-proofed with 4G LTE. Good camera. Green credentials

Sprint hasn't announced LTE launches for most cities. Just-average voice performance

You get about 1.5GB of free onboard memory and a 4GB MicroSD card in a slot under the back cover; the phone had no problem with our 64GB SanDisk card. Its powerful processor easily handles most music and video files, including 1080p HD video. There's...
