LG Spectrum 2 (Verizon Wireless)

The Good The LG Spectrum 2 has NFC and wireless charging capabilities, fast 4G LTE speeds, and a camera packed with features.

The Bad The Spectrum 2 comes preloaded with too much bloatware, and has a thick profile and a poor audio speaker.

The Bottom Line With its winning combination of a reasonable price tag, wireless features, and solid performance, the Spectrum 2 is an excellent Verizon handset in its price range.

Not only does it run the new(ish) Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, it also has a screen that doesn't require two hands and a stylus. In addition, it's priced right at the $100 mark, making it one of the more affordable Big Red handsets.
