Pros Large screen with amazing colors.
FAST - I mean nearly zero lag time.
4G Internet flys.
Battery life is excellent.
Cons None so far.
Summary I had the iPhone for about a week and could not stand that there were no widgets and it couldn't be customized. When I took home the LG Spectrum and set it up, I truly found that 'Wow Factor' that was hoping for. This phone is blazing fast and gorgeous.
Pros camera, photo quality, screen resolution, 4G LTE, true 720p HD, 1080p Video, apps-a-plenty!
Cons battery life could be better
Summary I LOVE this smartphone! I upgraded from Motorola's first Droid, which I really liked, but which always disappointed with the camera quality. While my old Droid had higher MPs than my LG enV, the quality was never as good. I had hoped it would be a good emergency camera when my Canon batteries died, but, it was not. So, when planning my recent upgrade, I looked again at the various Droids, along with Samsung's Galaxy Nexus and LG's Spectrum. The Droid Maxx had the battery life I wanted, but the screen resolution wasn't quite where I wanted it to be. The Nexus had the screen I wanted but no removable memory card. The LG Spectrum had the screen resolution, removable memory card, and while the battery life wasnt the greatest (so I bought an extended battery to go with), it won out on the camera test The pics were crisp and truer to color than the Droid, (the Nexus lost because of the removable memory).... AND the price was lower for similar quality in the others I tested. If you take pics with your phone, LG's Spectrum will not disappoint!....and did I mention it was fast with downloads? It is FAST! How refreshing after 2 years of 3G.
"Awsome Phone!"on by NCMETALHEAD
Pros Fast,Features,Screen Size HD!
Cons Short battery life,USB needs to be at the bottom not the top! LG UI is different takes getting use to!
Summary Great High end smart phone for the price! Truly Verizon's best LG phone to date!
"Awesome so far."on by musicfish59
Pros It's overall functionality
Cons VERY SLIPPERY! GET A GRIPPY/PROTECTIVE CASE FOR IT!
Battery Life (of course)
Back Cover seems a little flimsy IMHO.
Summary This phone is the best option out there and you get the most bang for your buck. I havent had the phone even a week yet but so far I am very happy with it. The size is a little intimidating at first but a very rewarding experience. The virtual keyboard is so easy to use and very accurate. I would only have a physical keyboard before but this has won me over. Other people complain about the charging port being on top. I have no clue why this matters and it has not been a problem for me at all. First thing to do is get a grippy/protective case for it. The first day I dropped it because it easily slipped from hand. Have no clue why LG didnt make the back cover textured/grippy. I ordered the Case Mate "Tough Case" which appears to be the best option out there. Highly recomended!

Pros Look and feel, build quality, large but lightweight form factor, great screen, removable battery and memory card, lower price than rivals.
Cons No notification LED. (I can't forgive LG for this since the Revolution has one.) Extended battery offered by Verizon is obtrusive (like the Revolution's). Would have been great if LG's ICS interpretation had been ready for release with the phone.
Summary I really liked the Revolution I had previously and felt the Spectrum would be even better. It is. My only real disappointment is the aforementioned missing notification LED. (I've found an app in the Market named "NoLED" that works very well, however.) I'm eager to see how ICS performs and hope LG quickly releases it. I don't find battery usage to be significantly different from the Revolution (which for me wasn't bad). Phone sound quality is fine, BlueTooth, WiFi and related implementations all work fine for me. I'd rate it 5 stars if it had a notification LED and ICS out of the box. (Have I made it clear that I miss not having a notificiaton LED? I never saw it even mentioned in any of the Spectrum reviews or those of it's sibling products, ie: Nitro.)Note: The creator of the "NoLED" app (madmack) says it was developed for the Samsung Galaxy S which also has no LED. It displays "dots" (or icons, if desired) on the screen for unread notifications and can also provide repeating vibe and/or audible reminders. It's free (donations appreciated) and works well for me. It's definitely worth a look.
