CNET First Look
LG Revolution (Verizon Wireless)The LG Revolution is a slim and attractive Android smartphone that supports Verizon's 4G-LTE network.
I'm Nicole Lee, Senior Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is a first look at the LG Revolution for Verizon Wireless. It is the third ever 4G phone for Verizon Wireless and on the front here as you can see is a very nice and roomy 4.3-inch display. It is very bright and colorful as you can see here. Underneath it is you get 4 touch sensitive Android keys at the bottom. On the back is a 5-megapixel camera. Above the display is a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The LG Revolution has a 1GHz SnapDragon processor. The interface is not quite vanilla; it has LG's own spin on it however, it's not that intrusive. Because the Revolution is from Verizon Wireless, it comes with the whole suite of Verizon Wireless apps. To include the V CAST Apps, VZ Navigator and more. Instead of Google Search and Google Maps, the Revolution shifts with the Bing Maps and Bing Search instead. That's because of Verizon's partnership with MicroCell's Bing service. Other features of the phone include the usual Android features like Gmail and tight integration with other Google services. A few notable built-in apps on the phone include Amazon's Kindle Reader, as well as Netflix. In fact, the LG Revolution is one of a few Android phones to shift with Netflix built-in. The LG Revolution is available for 249 dollars with the new two-year service agreement with Horizon Wireless. I'm Nicole Lee and this has been the first look at the LG Revolution.
