Aaron takes a first look at Verizon Wireless' third 4G LTE smartphone, the LG Revolution.  Powered by a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, Revolution offers a 4.3-inch display, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, front-facing shooter, and Android 2.2 with LG's custom user interface.  It's a high-end smartphone with a decent specifications list, but it doesn't offer any new features over the HTC ThunderBolt and Samsung DROID Charge.  Considering the price point - $249.99 - it will be interesting to see if people choose it over the other 4G choices.

Zach Cline @ Matt. Because it blows. You won't realize how bad it is until you get an iphone or any droid. Then you'll see how bad it really is.

Zach Cline 5'' inches is too big. The samsung infuse looks ridiculous enough.

Matt Sempo why does everyone hate the lg ENV touch, i think its a great phone
Zach Cline
Zach Cline The env touch was horrible lol. I like mine at first, Then after about four months it started to crap out. One day it shut itself off and resetted at least twenty times. Not to mention how the screen would freeze and have those lovely streaks of black and blue on it .
