Review: LG Spectrum with Verizon 4G LTE

Mobile Magazine
12 August 2013
  • Conclusion: While not all users will fall in love with the simple aesthetics of the LG Spectrum, I certainly found myself mesmerized by the overall experience I had. I enjoyed the HD capabilities and large screen, messing around with apps like the Siri-clone “Evi”, and playing with the camera. It certainly was a major step up from my older entry-level LG Optimus, that’s for sure (of course any phone would have been better than my older entry smartphone).

Review of the LG Spectrum (Verizon)

18 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The LG Spectrum has a beautiful display and download speeds beyond anything I've seen outside of my home FiOS line. Actually, it's occasionally even FASTER than my FiOS connection. But all of that comes at a big sacrifice to battery life. If you're going to plan for a 4.5-inch display and 1.5 GHz dual core processor, you need to plan for a big battery, as well. LG didn't, and the results were all too obvious.

Review: LG Spectrum

  • Conclusion: At $299, the Spectrum tips the scales at your typical price point for a high-end Android device. Overall, the Spectrum is an awesome device that is only marred by its skin (if such things bother you). Skin preferences aside, we really don’t see a reason not to recommend the device. It is powerful, fast, and can easily get you through a busy work day. The built-in gesture/movement based navigational actions are a nice addition, too.

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The LG Spectrum is a powerful, high-end Android phone that offers Verizon subscribers good value despite some troubling benchmark results.
  • Pros: Massive, ultra-sharp 720p screen. Great battery life. Sharp camera and camcorder. Thin and light for an LTE phone.

LG Spectrum from Verizon Review

  • Excerpt: Code named the Revolution 2, the LG Spectrum is the most recent Verizon LTE device on the market. After spending a couple of minutes with it at CES , a lot of expectations were set on the table with Verizon’s new list of LTE devices, and the Spectrum topped the list because of the amount of quality specs involved.
  • Pros: + Bright and easy to read IPS display

  • Conclusion: There's a lot to like about the LG Spectrum. It has LTE with strong 4G reception, a really lovely 4.5" IPS 720p display and a fast Qualcomm S3 dual core CPU. It's promised an upgrade to Android 4.0 and handles video playback like a champ. Not bad for $199 with contract. But we're put off by the occasional stutters and lags, and the phone isn't as stable as we'd like.
  • Pros: Good LTE reception, sharp 720p IPS display.
  • Cons: Sometimes laggy and occasional crashes.

LG's playing catch-up on Verizon, and the Spectrum is its comeback card

theverge.com
27 January 2012
  • Summary: The LG Nitro HD succeeds in spite of its UI skin because it has great hardware, a great display, fast LTE speeds, and only a few other phones on its network that can claim the same. Even that phone was a pretty blatant imitation of the Galaxy S II, though, and frankly, I wish LG had stuck with that strategy — the Spectrum’s a much more unique phone, and not in a good way.
  • Pros: Excellent 720p display, Fast LTE connectivity, Solid call quality
  • Cons: Body feels and looks ugly, LG's UI skin is an eyesore, Bad battery life

Spectrum by LG Review

SlashGear
27 January 2012
  • Conclusion: This is certainly one of the top five LG smartphones ever to be released, and definitely beats out the LG Revolution released last year with LTE as the best LG device on Verizon right this minute. It's relatively sleek, light, and has a fabulous camera, all this aside from the fact that if you live in an LTE area, it's very, very fast data-wise.

LG Spectrum Review

LAPTOP Magazine
27 January 2012
  • Summary: Yes, the $199 LG Spectrum has a high-quality 720p display, fast 4G LTE speeds, and a sharp camera. However, the industrial design doesn't impress as much as the ultra thin $199 Droid RAZR, and we prefer the Super AMOLED display and newer and sleeker Android 4.0 software on the Galaxy Nexus ($299 from Verizon, $99 on Amazon). The heavy-handed Android skin on the Spectrum and the lack of a Search button are other turnoffs.
