LG Spectrum Review

With a big and bold HD screen and zippy 4G LTE speeds, the LG Spectrum packs impressive hardware, but short battery life and a heavy-handed Android skin dampen our enthusiasm.

3 stars
(3 out of 5)

Verizon Wireless customers now have an embarrassment of HD riches. The $199 LG Spectrum joins the HTC Rezound, Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the LG Nitro in that carrier’s stable of smartphones with mammoth 4.5-inch 720p displays. The Spectrum hopes to stand out in that high-def crowd with an IPS screen that boasts a brightness of 500 nits and the type of color accuracy usually reserved for TVs. Plus, the Spectrum offers exclusive access to HD content in the ESPN ScoreCenter app, making this phone a tempting choice for sports fans. Read on to find out whether LG’s latest superphone is worth cheering for.
