Review: LG Revolution
The LG Revolution offers little to set it apart from the pack if you don't count the LTE radio. The presence of the LTE radio adds bulk and weight to the device, and makes it sometimes-cumbersome phone to use effectively. But the overall good performance of its other features make up for this.
While battery life was a bit disappointing, the Revolution was good for making calls, browsing the web (quickly), taking pictures, shooting video, and playing back all sorts of video content.
LG didn't do too much to set the Android experience apart from the pack, but what it did was tasteful and not overbearing. The added home screen tools and menu organizational elements left me feeling that the Revolution is a bit more organized than some of its peers.
If you live in an LTE market and don't mind the size and battery issues, the Revolution is a solid phone that I'd recommend to anyone who likes to live on the bleeding edge of tech. Is the Revolution revolutionary? Perhaps not, but it certainly is a contender in the early skirmish for LTE supremacy.
We've discovered that Verizon is quietly pushing Qi wireless charging technology, by requiring manufacturers to include the technology in their LTE phones. Read on for photos and details of the first Qi products for Verizon.
