LG Spectrum review: 'HD' is its middle name

Verizon's LG Spectrum superphone has all the high-end specs you'd want in today's top Android phones, including 4G LTE speeds and an emphasis on HD.

LG Spectrum (Verizon)

If you don't mind a slab of a phone that really does resemble a king-size candy bar, then feast your eyes on the LG Spectrum.

If the clean lines and checkered back cover don't win you over, then perhaps the 4.5-inch screen, Verizon's LTE speeds, and 720p HD display will.

LG doesn't stop there, either. The 8-megapixel camera/camcorder can shoot video in 1080p HD, and LG and Verizon have preloaded a trio of HD apps that optimize high-definition video playback.

The Spectrum isn't immune to flaws, though, and the handset is seeing fierce competition on Verizon like never before (read: Motorola Droid Razr Maxx, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, HTC Rezound.) However, this handset keeps LG in the running, and the $200 price tag fits in with the higher end of the pack.
