Review: LG Spectrum for Verizon Wireless
The stock Android browser performs very well on the Spectrum. 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 Verizon's EVDO network, the Spectrum 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 LG Spectrum offers the standard laundry list of customization features, such as wallpapers, ringtones, and all that stuff. The home screens can be littered with widgets, shortcuts, contacts, apps, ans so on. I am not a fan of the main app menu, but it can be customized if you care to take the time to do so.
