Pros Very smooth interface, easy to learn.
Cons nothing negative that I can come across yet
Summary Very fast phone that I recomend!
Pros Spectacular large display, very light and thin, responsive to the touch, and inexpensive. With moderate use, battery lasts 12 hours.
4G speed faster than my 21 MB cable source.
Cons Plastic back shows fingerprints (completely overcome by using an after-market skin).
If used extensively, battery will be exhausted in 6 hours.
Summary I read all the cons before my purchase, yet the attractiveness of the display outweighed them all and, after 2 weeks daily use, none of the cons were found to be a real problem. I love this device!
Pros Processor speed, 4G LTE connectivity, gorgeous HD screen, lightweight, clean looks.
Cons Battery is not incredible (better than what I'm used to though), a lot of apps/movies/video aren't ready for the big 16X9 HD screen.
Summary Got two for one special (one for me, one for the Mrs.) at Verizon ($199) and then got $100 off of THAT for this being my first 4G phone. So, two of these phones for $99 are you kidding? What a deal. The experience is a 1000% improvement over my Droid Pro (which has been my Buddy for a couple of years now...loved that phone, but let's face it, it's ancient technology).
Picked up this phone yesterday so admittedly I'm still learning and I'm still in a honeymoon phase. That being said, I find a lot of the nit-pickyness of many of the online reviews from several different sites to be misguided and...well...a little nit-picky.
I'm a techy guy, but I draw the line at rooting the phone. I hit the internet a lot, watch videos, movies, use this via bluetooth to connect to my Ford Explorer's Sync system to listen to my Google Cloud Music, GPS/Maps, etc. I use my phone a LOT and this phone RULES. The speed of both the 4G and the processor are outrageous. Considering most people upgrade after the 2 year contract, many of the reviews don't take that into consideration and only compare phones to their contemporaries. That makes sense, but it would be good for them to comment on the improvements over previous technology because this phone kicks all forms of a$$ if you're coming out of a 2 year old phone/contract.
The Camera works LIGHTING fast...no delay when you hit the button (isn't that frustrating?). The quality seems very good, but I haven't tried the HD video. I typically use my camera for video, but I may try it more with my phone now that I have the HD capability.
I did download Easy Battery Saver which i'm trying to find the right combination. The recommended settings with that app disable the 4G connection so I'm trying to get that figured out but that supposedly will help with the battery usage. We'll see how it goes today as I was able to charge it completely overnight. It did take a lot longer to charge up than my Droid Pro did for some reason....
If you're like me and use your phone to keep connected to the rest of the world but don't want to take it apart to fully enjoy it, then you will LOVE this phone. At a price of $199 for TWO, find a friend or loved one and GO GET THIS PHONE!!!
Pros Amazing display
Fast shutter speed
Excellent Camera Quality
Cons No LED status light
Summary This is my fifth Android phone the others being a LG Optimus, Motorola Droid (Original), Motorola Droid X2 and HTC EVO 3D. The LG Spectrum hands down is the best Android phone I have owned. The 1.5 dual-core S3 processor is amazing fast. The camera is fast and takes a great picture. The screen is clear and bright, HD content is outstanding.
The lack of LED status indicator is too bad since I had become accustomed to looking for it on my past phones. A lot of major reviewers have said the phone feels cheap which I disagree. I like the light weight of the phone and think it has a classy look to it. Yes the battery cover shows finer prints but since I put a case over it that doesn't bother me. The LG app drawer is "ok" but I will admit I switched back to list view after a while.
Overall I highly recommend this phone.
Pros Awsome screen super fast,able to talk and use internet at same time,calls are loud and clear both ways..on phone user manual,tuturials on how to use yr phone..ringer is loud,speaker phone is even louder I mean loud and super clear.
Cons none battery could be a little better...but for what I use it is just find for me last me all day long...couple calls a day browsing the net watching short videos
Summary Good news this phone you can talk and be on the internet at same time.last year they kept trashing verizon cause they couldnt do that cause of their technology well no more this phone can do just that..has built dolby surround sound when hooked up to headphones listing to music.it has speech to text works great..if in a hurry or have yr hands occupied..just answer by saying what you want to text awsome..keep in mind most so called professional reviewers get way to technical sometimes care more about how a phone looks physically or about technical numbers such as speed test call quality if its not exactly perfect...I for one dnt care for all that I more intrested on what the phone is intended to do works the way its suppose to work...this phone does all that and more...I for one am very forunate I live on the central coast in cali..We are just surrounded by great coverage here bth 3g and now 4g...so no matter where I go im about 95 percent connected with great coverage.thats somthing you have to think about b4 buying a phone like this...make sure you have good coverage whre you live makes a big difference...its not always the phones fault if it dnt work the way it suppose to..but overall I highly recommend this phone to every one looking for a new phone..just love mine
