Review: LG Nitro HD for AT&T
The stock Android browser performs very well on the Nitro HD. When under LTE coverage, it was as fast as I've seen any browser on a mobile phone perform. Web sites appeared in a wink. When used with AT&T's HSPA+ network, the Nitro HD gave a more average performance. Web sites loaded quickly, but not LTE-fast, that's for sure. The browser itself works well and has a decent set of controls. The one issue is that the browser software lags a bit when you're messing with the settings. For example, if you jump into the bookmarks, the app might hang on you for a few seconds before doing what you want it to. Lag is a drag.
The LG Nitro HD offers the standard laundry list of customization features, but adds a few as well. Some of the new ones include the categorized main menu, and the ability to create and manage those categories. Wallpapers, ringtones, and all that stuff are laughably easy.
