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

LG Spectrum Review

  • 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.
