LG Spectrum 2 – great hardware and unique design make for a great smartphone

Gadgetmania
21 February 2013
  • Conclusion: The LG Spectrum is just one of Verizon’s many offers since the last Holiday season, and at $100 with a contract, it’s certainly one of the more affordable ones. If you want a high end phone with all the bells and whistles and don’t require the fastest processor on the market, the Spectrum 2 is a perfect choice. It’s already on sale, so be sure to check it out, even if the Nexus 4 and HTCs Droid DNA seem like the obvious winner.

  • Conclusion: We often suggest buying the best phone you can with your contract since the phone's price is small compared to the cost of a 2 year contract. In the case of the Spectrum 2, you're not giving up much by going with this $99 smartphone vs. $199 smartphones. Beyond looks, which are admittedly subjective, our only caveat is that it ships with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich rather than 4.1 Jelly Bean, and LG's track record for upgrades hasn't been good.
  • Pros: higher end features for a low price, large IPS HD display, good call quality and data speeds.
  • Cons: Not the most attractive design, battery life is just OK, ships with Android 4.0 rather than 4.1.

LG Spectrum 2 Review (Verizon)

SlashGear
2 December 2012
  • Conclusion: What can I say? LG has made a strong showing in the mid-range field once again. I can't find anything to really complain about as far a mid-range smartphones go – no, you don't have the best of the best in terms of hardware, but for $99 on a two-year contract, the Spectrum 2 is a pretty good phone. I think the screen is the phone's biggest selling point. It's nice and big at 4.7-inches and boasts HD resolution to boot, so in that respect you really can't go wrong.

  • Summary: For $99, the LG Spectrum 2 offers smartphone shoppers a big and bright HD screen, wireless charging capability and nifty NFC stickers for toggling settings with a tap. We also like the sharp camera and built-in video editing app. And while the design is somewhat hefty, this phone's soft-touch back feels reassuring.
  • Pros: Sturdy design with comfortable soft-touch back, Bright display, Wireless charging capability, NFC stickers make it easy to change settings
  • Cons: Performance suffers from lag, Running old Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS, Below-average battery life
