LG Nitro HD v Samsung GS II Skyrocket: Head to Head
30 September 2012
Summary: Additional comments: Slightly heavier than Nitro. Slick back cover—not quite as easy to handle because of it. Front camera better than Nitro’s. On-board support for Facebook, Twitter and Picasa. Music player.
Summary: LG’s not exactly the first name that comes to mind when you think of smartphones. Nor is it the second or third, I’d wager. But the company wants to change that with the Nitro HD, its first attempt at a flagship cell phone in a long time — the $249.99 (with contract) handset is AT&T’s first phone with a 720p display, and one of only three that connects to the carrier’s nascent LTE network.
Pros: Gorgeous display, LTE connectivity, Solid performance, Good build quality
Cons: Awful UI skin, No Android 4.0 yet, Poor battery life
Excerpt: The LG Nitro on AT&T is among the first shipping Android phones to pack a full 720p display. Not only that, it’s among the first shipping AT&T phones to do LTE, which promises speeds far greater than what is offered over AT&T’s HSPA+ 3G network. Sadly, LG has a shaky history of delivering high-end devices, and we also know that there is still a limited amount of cities in the United States that take full advantage of AT&T’s 4G LTE Network.
Summary: The Nitro HD is quite possibly the best device on AT&T, even over the Skyrocket. But— and it's a major one— the software bugs must be fixed before I would ever recommend this device. Android 4.0...
Pros: Drop-dead gorgeous display, Fast LTE speeds, Good voice quality
Cons: Locks up frequency, Awkward hard-key placement, Inability to toggle LTE, Terrible battery life (Due to the former?)
Excerpt: AT&T and LG released yet another LTE 4G device— the LG Nitro HD. It is also the first and only device with a 720p display on AT&T. Priced at a hefty $250, the Nitro HD has set some high expectations.
