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

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...
Excerpt: LG proved to us with the Optimus G that they can make a decent smartphone. The device earned praise from almost every reviewer out there and went on to be the base of the Nexus 4. But, one question still remained: Could LG make a solid, mid-range device without top-of-the-line specs?
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.
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.
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.

Conclusion: Por 100 dólares (en EEUU), el LG Spectrum 2 es una muy buena adquisición. Los únicos dispositivos que Verizon ofrece por el mismo precio son el Samsung Galaxy Nexus y el Motorola Droid Razr ya algo antiguos y sucedidos por el Motorola Droid Razr HD y el LG Nexus 4 .
