First Look: The LG Mach takes flight

1:19 /

Armed with a five-row sliding keyboard, the LG Mach also has a dual-core CPU, a 4-inch WVGA touchscreen, and a 5-megapixel camera.

-Hello everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET bringing you guys the LG Mach from Sprint. The Mach is an Android 4.0 handset that has a 4-inch touchscreen with a 480x800-pixel resolution. It runs on Sprint 4G LTE network, and as you can see, it has a sliding five-row keyboard which includes navigational arrows and number keys. Now, on its side, the device measures a little less than half an inch, 0.48 inches in fact. This makes it relatively thin as far as slider phones go, but at 5.92 ounces, it feels pretty dense and heavy in the hand. Powering the Mach is a 1.2-gigahertz dual core processor and a 1.7 ampere hour battery which gives you a recorded talk time of about eight hours. Above the display is a VGA front-facing camera and on the other side is a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash. It's capable of recording full 1080p HD video and the phone includes a shortcut key to the camera. Other features include NFC capabilities, LG's note taking feature, quick memo, and a micro-SD card slot. The handset is available now on Sprint for about $100 after users sign a carrier agreement and send in a mail-in rebate. Again, I'm Lynn and this has been the LG Mach from Sprint.
