Review: LG Marquee for Sprint
The Marquee is a solid smartphone from LG that offers a lot for its $99.99 price tag. You get a solid piece of hardware that feels good and works well. Aside from the microUSB port snafu, it's a great little phone.
The nearly 100% stock Android 2.3 Gingerbread experience will surely appeal to many users who don't want to deal with the skins and user interfaces that some manufacturers insist on. If you want, you can completely ignore Sprint ID and enjoy Android in its nearly naked form. The downside is that you get almost zero awesome extra features that might come with a manufacturer-designed skin, such as social networking integration and slightly better media capabilities.
As a basic communications tool, the Marquee performed very well with respect to voice calls, signal, battery, and email/messaging. It's biggest stumble, in my book, is the inconsistent camera and shoddy video camera. Otherwise, the Marquee gets nearly every feature right.

For smartphone shoppers who may be on a budget and don't need or want a 4G device, the LG Marquee satisfied in ways that perhaps Sprint's A-List devices can't. Instead of a Bruce Willis Hollywood blockbuster, you get a Bruce Campbell cult classic that you're more apt to watch again and again.
