The LG Spectrum is one of many CDMA/LTE smartphones available from Verizon in the US.
It looks pretty promising on paper, with decent features such as a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 CPU, 1GB RAM, 4GB storage, a 4.5-inch HD screen, and a 1,830mAh battery. It has an 8MP camera with LED flash at the back, a front-facing secondary cam, a bunch of wireless features that include GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and support for both LTE and EV-DO Rev. A data. All of these are kept inside a body that measures only 11mm thin and weighs 141 grams.
It performs just as well as you might expect it to based on its list of specs. The main problem with it is that it runs an older version of the Android OS. In a time when devices are being announced with the latest version of Android pre-installed, the Spectrum is stuck with version 2.3. Not to mention a rather unremarkable looking exterior and, according to most reviewers, a not-so-attractive custom user interface on top of its Android OS.
