LG Spectrum from Verizon Wireless Review LG and Verizon Wireless have brought the same display technology used in LG's premium HD televisions to a new smartphone dubbed the Spectrum. Featuring a 4.5-inch True HD IPS display and a resolution of 1280x720, the LG Spectrum uses Real Stripe subpixel arrangement which LG says is denser and 1.4 times sharper than the PenTile subpixel arrangement used on Super AMOLED displays. The phone's display features a screen density of 329 pixels per inch to provide a sharp, crisp picture that shows fine details.

The LG Spectrum features a Qualcomm 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor and connects to Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE network. The phone also supports 4G mobile hotspot capabilities for up to ten devices, provided you pay for the option to use this feature...

Very beautiful piece of technology, but why is it so big? What about this phone is better than the Iphone?

Looking forward to the update to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). When will this take place?

I love how sleek this looks, I to wish it was a bit smaller.

The menu key in the bottom left functions as a search button when held down.

This is my third LG phone in 6 yrs. I like the fast dual core processor and bright HD screen but these features result in poor battery performance. I like the product BUT this one is a bit of a "letdown" because the indicator lights are missing. They decided not to put them on this phone which is a real disapointment. The ALLY had different color lights that indicated either incoming text, voicemail, or email with a different color for each. That feature I'm truely going to miss. Hopefully the next generation LG smatphone brings them back.
