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 LG Esteem runs on 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.

Catch the video, photo gallery, and all the pros and cons in our full hands-on review of the LG Esteem.
