Conclusion: I found something very strange about the LG Spirit 4G: my opinion of the look of the device seemed to change very drastically depending on the angle I saw it from. From certain angles, you could easily confuse it for one of LG’s high-end offerings, while from others it almost looked like a device that would ship running Froyo. I am usually a fan of LG’s design aesthetics, but this time that wasn’t quite the case.
Summary: For $199, the LG Spirit 4G delivers strong performance, a bright 4.5-inch screen and long battery life. You also get some of LG's nifty software innovations, such as QuickMemo. Metro PCS customers willing to spend more up front will prefer the $499 Galaxy S III, which offers a bigger and sharper screen along with a better camera. Overall, though, the LG Spirit 4G is one of the better phones in MetroPCS' growing stable of affordable powerhouses.
Pros: Good performance and graphics, Fast 4G LTE speeds, Excellent battery life, Bright Gorilla Glass display, Inexpensive over two years
