Its high price and slow processor will make it a tough sell

from Cnet

Aside from its beautiful display, svelte design, and adequate camera, the LG Marquee for Boost Mobile doesn't have a lot of things going for it. We can even look past the fact that it doesn't run on 4G because a lot of other top-notch phones don't run on it either. But with its slow performance, unattractive Mobile ID customization option, and subpar screen resolution, its price tag doesn't merit its worth. Sure, you could argue that since it makes good calls (and indeed, it does) then it must be a great phone. But if calling is all you care about, and this phone goes for $279, you can get...

The LG Marquee has a bright, beautiful screen and plenty of Android power

from PC Magazine
Boost Mobile has a number of good smartphones, but they all seem to lack a certain wow factor. The LG Marquee probably won't make anyone cancel their current contract and rush over to Boost, but its exceptionally bright, rich display delivers a bit more wow than anything else on Boost right now. It's also an all-around great smartphone, so it earns our Editors' Choice award... Full review

A small and powerful smartphone that may not be a blockbuster, but will please those looking for a refined performance

from Phone Scoop

The Marquee is a solid smartphone from LG that offers a lot for its $99.99 price tag. You get a solid piece of hardware that feels good and works well. Aside from the microUSB port snafu, it's a great little phone.

The nearly 100% stock Android 2.3 Gingerbread experience will surely appeal to many users who don't want to deal with the skins and user interfaces that some manufacturers insist on. If you want, you can completely ignore Sprint ID and enjoy Android in its nearly naked form. The downside is that you get almost zero awesome extra features that might come with a manufact...

Some performance issues mar the overall experience

from PC Magazine
Upon first glance, the LG Marquee looks like any number of other Android cell phones. But a closer look reveals something special: an exceptionally bright, crisp screen. Aside from a major video playback bug, this is a solid phone if you're looking for the best screen and physical design for the least amount of cash... Full review

A good phone for what it is, but doesn’t play with the big boys

from PhoneArena
Thanks to its wonderful 4” NOVA display we’d choose it over the Samsung Conquer 4G and it is likely the best of the rest in Sprint’s lineup. The camera performance could be better at times and battery life may be a concern for some, but the ultra-thin form-factor, super crisp display and good phone performance will draw plenty of users who want more out of their phone but don’t need a top-of-the-line device...

The LG Marquee boasts the brightest display of any smartphone, but it falls flat in other areas

from Laptop Magazine
Sprint hopes the LG Marquee will entice budget-conscious shoppers seeking a slim and attractive Android handset. However, it's not the best bargain. The HTC EVO 4G Shift and Samsung Nexus S 4G offer 4G network access and faster overall performance. And while the Marquee's screen is bright, the Nexus S 4G's Super AMOLED screen is pretty impressive, too... Full review
