Review: LG Marquee for Sprint
The Marquee supports mono and stereo Bluetooth headsets. I had no trouble pairing with either. Sound quality through mono headphones was very good, on par with the standard voice calls. Quality through stereo headphones was also good. It also connects with computers and/or other phones for pushing files around. The Marquee also supports Bluetooth 3.0, though I was unable to get the 3.0+HS function to work for really fast device-to-device file transfers.Clock
The Marquee offers the standard Android clock on the lock screen, which is visible when the device is first woken from sleep. It's a nice, large digital read-out that's easily visible everywhere except under direct sunlight. It can't be customized, though.GPS
The Marquee only includes Google Maps. Sprint's TeleNav-based navigation service is nowhere to be found. Google Maps and its Navigation and Places features make for a powerful set of tools when it comes to routing directions and discovering nearby points of interest. The trifecta of these applications means there's no excuse to get lost nor to find a great place for dinner. The Marquee's GPS radio performed very well in most circumstances, and was able to pinpoint my location to within 25 feet most of the time.

Sprint's upcoming Mobile Wallet software for mobile payments is installed on the Marquee, but I was unable to use it to create an account. Since the Marquee doesn't include near-field communications, the usefulness of this app is severely limited, and I'm not quite sure why it is installed at all. The service has launched in a few markets with a few retailers. Sprint will be expanding its availability over time.
