First Look: LG Nitro HD (AT&T)

1:43 /

The LG Nitro HD aims high with its 8-megapixel camera and 4.5-inch, full HD display. It also happen to be AT&T's third-ever 4G LTE phone.

Hi, this is Roger (Kay?), senior writer at cnet.com. And I'm here to launch an event in Manhattan for the LG Nitro. The LG Nitro is ATP's 3rd LG phone and the big thing about it is the display. It's got a full 1280 by 720 resolution screen, they both is the largest HD touch screen display of any smartphone. LG says this phone shows colors are more true to life than what you find on other competing phones. Now the augmented screed it also has an 8 megapixel camera on the back and 1.3 megapixel front face camera for video chatting. If you look at the phone, it looks basically like your standard LG smartphone. It's got the same user interface. It looks sort of like the Android (??) face but maybe slightly tweaked. As you can see the phone is fairly thin, it's got a decent kind of plastic backing that it doesn't look like it's a real fingerprint magnet, so that's a positive. The phone has a standard home, back and settings button. It moves fairly quickly, it has a 1.5 gigahertz dual core snap dragon processor. It's got 1 gig of RAM, 4 gig of on board memory as well as a 16 gig micro SD card. The phone runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread but LG says it will be upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich. When exactly that is, is unclear. They said they'll find out more about the end of the year. The phone has an 1830 milliamps Lithium ion battery and it's raised for 7 hours of talk time. Kind of a concern because most LG phones are battery drained and you never know how long this thing will last. The phone is available on December 4th and will sell for $249.99 with configured contract. I'm Roger (Kay?) and this is the LG Nitro.
