LG Esteem review: Killer camera, dying battery
MetroPCS' latest 4G phone has a few nice surprises, including impressive camera functionality. Unfortunately, it's also got a tragic flaw.
Good: The Android 2.3 Gingerbread, taps into MetroPCS' 4G LTE network, and has an impressive pair of front- and rear-facing cameras.
Bad: Bulky and heavy, the LG Esteem's worst offense is its poor battery life. Its slow data speeds keep it from working well outside of MetroPCS' 4G LTE territory.
Bottom Line: Specs-wise, the LG Esteem is MetroPCS' fastest and most advanced phone, but its dismal battery life is a terrible disservice.
