Conclusion: Adding it all together we are fairly impressed with the LG Mach as a mid-range device. With a $99 on contract price it is half of what Sprint wants for the Photon Q but is definitely more than half the phone.

Pros: Relatively thin and comfortable design, Speedy performance, Good battery life, 4G LTE connectivity (where available)
Cons: Keys are somewhat stiff, Low resolution screen, 5MP camera is unimpressive, Mediocre call quality
