LG Spectrum Review: Cutting-Edge Features for a Reasonable Price Discussion
Although LG isn't a name often associated with cutting-edge smartphones, the new LG Spectrum aims to change that, featuring a 4.5-inch HD resolution screen, 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, and support for Verizon's 4G LTE network.
The Spectrum is, in effect, positioned as a cheaper alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Like its competitor, the LG model features Google's Android OS and a large, vivid 1280 x 720 screen, although without some of the bells and whistles that the Nexus has.
Of course slightly cheaper is a relative term; at a suggested retail price of $200 with a new two-year contract, the Spectrum sits on what used to firmly be the upper end of smartphone pricing, before units like the Motorola Droid RAZR and Galaxy Nexus started crossing that line. But shaving a third off the price of its competitors, and with even deeper discounts available through online retailers, this handset proves that you don't need to spend a fortune to have high-end features.

Nice review, Adama -- as usual. The only thing I'd disagree with is the loss of the Find hardbutton, and that is because a number of apps map to it, as a toggle (probably because its used so infrequently otherwise)My useful BH links -- BH FAQS/repair options/digitizer discussions
