Aaron does an early review and unboxing of the LG Spectrum, Verizon's newest 4G LTE smartphone from the Consumer Electronics Show.  Resembling AT&T's LG Nitro HD, the LG Spectrum offers a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 4.5-inch IPS true HD (720p) display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, and Android 2.3.5 with LG's custom user interface.  It's a bit cheaper than most of Verizon's LTE handsets at $199.99, and it offers a gorgeous HD display.  Is this the must-have phone from CES?

Jose Santiago Gonzalez I've owned the droid razr and currently own the htc rezound. The rezound blows away the razr by miles. Better screen,camera,call quality,and speed. Yes the razr is thin,and build quality is awesome. But it feels awkward in the hand and did I mention the camera sucks.

Ignacio Gonzalez
Ignacio Gonzalez I have the Droid RAZR...buT remain memorized by the SUPER AMOLED + screen on the Droid Charge. I'm waiting for Samsung to release something high-end on vZW. That and I miss stuff that was a cinch on TouchWiz...but is non-existent or more complicated on MAP (Motorola Applications Platform).
