Excerpt: I have an LG Spectrum I purchased in June, 2012. Today is my upgrade date, and I cannot wait. This phone has a few good qualities, but as a whole, it is the worst piece of junk smartphone I have ever owned, bar none.
I hate making accounts, but this phone really deserves a review

Excerpt: I'm never motivated to bother leaving feedback or reviews - I don't benefit from it, so why go through the trouble? But this phone really deserves a review. First things first - I got a brand new LG Spectrum in September 2012.
Excerpt: Sluggish and slow, cannot wait to dump it but have to wait until Feb or pay full retail for a new smartphone. I read multiple reviews before purchasing last May and should have paid more attention to the reviewer who stated the screen was not very responsive, often requiring two attempts to achieve...
Pros: It works well as a PHONE
Cons: It works poorly as anything other than a phone
Excerpt: Literally the worst phone I have ever owned. I am writing this review as a warning so that no one else will listen to the jackass salesman and make the same mistake i did. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE, even if you are being held at gunpoint.
Excerpt: For texting it is lousy. As big as the screen is it's keypad is small and too close together. Even using swype on it, you really have to look at your words before you send a text, it changes them on you, even when you think you've corrected them.
Pros: Sleek,Camera, Screen,
Cons: Key pad letters small, Shuts off all the time.Lousy battery life.
Excerpt: Dear possible LG purchaser: I was a huge fan of LG phones, until the Spectrum, and will be afraid to buy LG again. I cannot use this phone without a bluetooth to make and receive calls, otherwise the other person can't make out what I'm saying. I'm told it sounds muffled/garbled.
Excerpt: Let me start by saying I've had all of VZW's 4 g phones. WIth the exception of the Rezound, they've all fallen by the way side. This phone delivers and does so at a resonable price. It has the biggest and best display, a speedy processor, excellent connectivity, great camera and clear voice calls.
Excerpt: Great job on making a beast and have it for only 199.99. The display on this phone is great. This phone is a steal for the price. Looks big but feels comfortable to hold. The camera takes amazing pictures and HD video. This UI did take sometime to learn but now I love it.
Pros: Display,, processer, SPEED, Connectivity flawless switch from 4G to 3G
Excerpt: So what’s nice about these two devices is that they both feature snazzy looking 720p displays. With the LG Spectrum, it’s a 4.5” True HD IPS TFT display that packs the higher pixel density of 329 ppi, whereas the Galaxy Nexus features a larger 4.65” Super AMOLED display with a pixel density of 316...
Excerpt: phone was great driving home from verizon, when i got home it disconnected from 4g every 5 minutes and i had to do a hard reset. wait for the razr maxx.--------------------------------------------------------------
