LG Mach (Sprint)

The Good The LG Mach has a generously sized keyboard and runs on 4G LTE, and its decent camera includes plenty of features.

The Bad The Mach is heavy to hold, and has a poor audio speaker and mediocre call quality.

Competitive midlevel slider phone

LG hasn't had much luck with impressive keyboard phones. The LG Optimus Slider runs on Android Gingerbread and has a poor camera, and the LG Rumor Reflex is too basic for my taste. But when Sprint introduced the LG Mach at MobileCon about a month ago, it had a lot of potential.

For one thing, it natively ships with the new(ish) Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, and it has a swift dual-core processor. Its additional specs and features also make it competitive with other higher midrange devices.

The handset is available from Sprint and is priced at the $100 sweet spot after a two-year contract and mail-in rebate. For anyone on this carrier looking for a midlevel keyboard phone, the LG Mach is definitely worth considering.
