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.
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: Two powerhouse smartphones, the LG Nitro HD and the HTC Rezound, are sought-after devices that pack a punch and could likely end up on many people’s shopping lists this holiday season. Almost identical in specifications, the two super devices could give users a hard time in deciding which of the two to purchase for the holidays. With each phone carrying its own special features, let’s take a closer look at what makes each device different from the other.
Conclusion: The LG Nitro HD has an awful lot going for it. It offers blazing data speeds, a great still camera, and one of the nicest displays on the market - all in a physical design that works. The phone is hamstrung a bit by weak battery life when compared with its peers, but it still is a really solid device. I can't say I love it as much as I expected to initially, but I really do like it a lot.
Summary: The LG Nitro HD literally outshines the Android competition on AT&T with a brighter and sharper screen than any other handset, and it offers fantastic data speeds (when you're in an area with 4G LTE coverage). However, even at a discounted $149, this smartphone is a tough sell because of its short battery life and unattractive Android skin.
