Review: LG Connect 4G for MetroPCS
The Connect ships with Android 2.3.6 and a light user interface treatment from MetroPCS and LG.
The Connect offers seven home screen panels for customization and content. Four of them are littered with widgets and apps out of the box, but those can all be rearranged/deleted. The main app drawer is a single screen with all the apps displayed in an alphabetic grid. You can also view the main menu in a list, by category, or in a custom grid if you prefer.
The settings are mostly stock for an Android device and allow users to make a wide range of adjustments to the Connect's behavior without too much trouble.
In terms of performance, the Connect is OK but not great. You'd never suspect that it has a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon S3 processor inside. The home screen lags from time to time, apps are sometimes slow to open, and I had to repeat some screen presses thanks to unresponsive apps. LG needs to get its software engineers under control, because LG's Android devices -- as tested by Phone Scoop -- have an inconsistent record with respect to performance.
