LG Revolution Hands-On

I don’t know if I’d call it a revolution but its nice step in the direction that LG is taking their “premium” line of smartphones compared to their budget series like their Optimus S,T,U,M,V series. The Revolution is being released on Verizon using their “4G” LTE network.

The Revolution packs a nice colorful 4.3 touchscreen display, a 1.3MP FFC and a rear 5MP camera. Has a nice concealed port for HDMI for connecting to your TV. Includes Android 2.2 (Froyo) but by the time of release will hopefully have Gingerbread(2.3). The coolest thing I seen on this Android device that I didn’t see on any other device was the Netflix app. This was good to see as everyone is waiting for that to release.

Testing out the network was pretty snazzy. You could see the great speeds browsing online but you could also tell the phone was still in beta too. Not a bad phone, its a little thicker then a lot of the other smartphones LG has coming out like the Optimus 2x and the Black but hey sometimes people like a little weight to their phones.

The LG Revolution should be releasing hopefully Q1 2011 if not Q2 2011 on Verizon.
