Review: LG Spectrum for Verizon Wireless
The LG Spectrum uses the stock Android phone software, though it has been skinned by LG so it looks slightly different. The phone application is simple and straightforward and offers the typical set of tools, such as speakerphone, muting, and adding a line.
The phone app includes the contact database, which is accessible via one of the tabs at the top of the screen. Contacts can hold a ton of data, including multiple phone numbers, email addresses, web sites, street addresses, and more. There is one home screen widget for contacts which lets you place either six or nine of your top contacts on one of the seven panels. This widget gives you easy access to those few people, and offers shortcuts for sending them texts, emails, or calling them.
As with all Android 2.3 devices, it adds details from Facebook and other accounts to your contact database and keeps everything synced.
