Review: LG Spirit 4G for MetroPCS

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  

The LG Spirit 4G is one of the best offerings from MetroPCS in recent memory. At $199, it costs more than the bulk of MetroPCS's lineup, but the extra money goes a long, long way toward delivering an experience worth recommending.

Nearly everything about the hardware is solid, and the screen, in particular, dazzles with its bright and crisp appearance. The signal performance is among the strongest I've seen from a MetroPCS phone, though the sound quality is a bit lacking. The battery performance is on par with other devices in this clas.

What really makes the Spirit a good phone are the software customizations made by LG. Though I personally prefer stock Android, there's no doubt LG has made the Spirit a pleasing device to use thanks to the excellent customization options, fun-to-use camera, and animated home screens and menus.

Unless you really want to spend twice as much money on a phone like last year's Samsung Galaxy S III (which, at this point in time, I wouldn't recommend), the LG Spirit 4G is the best device currently available from MetroPCS.
