The CES devices keep coming!  Aaron does an in-depth review of the Verizon LG Spectrum, a new 4G LTE device that's available now for $199.99.  It closely resembles AT&T's LG Nitro HD, with a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 4.5-inch IPS HD (720p) display, 8-megapixel shooter with 1080p HD video recording capabilities, a front-facing camera for video calls, 1,830 mAh battery, and Android 2.3 with LG's custom UI.  The price point is great, considering Verizon's usual habit of pricing LTE devices at the $300 mark, but LG's user interface seems a little bit behind the times for such a high-end device.

Is this the phone to get if you're on Verizon, or should you hold off for other CES devices?  We'll figure it out.  Part 1 of 2.

Drew Page all these LTE phones from Verizon seem very similar
Chad Allen GalaxyNex doesnt impress me at all im glad i went with the Razr!
David Carleno GNex GNex GNex. Rezound also solid.
Jose Angel Santiago I recommend a third party reatailer like wirefly. They have some high end phones for free. You will be surprised.
Kirk Ngo razor Maxx
Marvin Breakfield I switched from Verizon to Tmobile and I'm never going back. I got the Samsung Galaxy S2, unlimited data is awesome and even when I max out on high speed data the 4G is still awesome. Verizon is slow and everything is expensive, plans and all. They offer no free smartphones unlike everyone else unless it's a cheap bottom basement phone
Jose Angel Santiago Basically most of the higher end phones specs wise are a lot similiar.
Marvin Breakfield Look at phone specs and decide which one best fits your needs.
Jose Angel Santiago I recommend that you go to an at&t store and hold the note in your hand. To see if the size of the phone fits well in your hand and pocket. It's one of those phones that either you love it or hate it. The skyrocket is one bass ads phone by the way.
Parker Moss Should I get the galaxy note or galaxy s2 skyrocket
Jose Angel Santiago The sleeper and the one that doesn't get the recognition that it deserves. The best phone Verizon has,and that is the htc rezound. I've owned both the razr and the galaxy nexus and sorry to say for those who own both. The rezound in my opinion is a better all around phone.
Zach Cline LG sucks
Adam Schulte I like the Rezound and the Galaxy Nexus
Tae RipRell AndTrapp Sprint Dont Even Got LTE So How Could They Ever Be Better Then Verizon ? But Yea LG Trash !
Dwayne Cook Verizon doesn't offer any variety on their plans and they are very expensive. Expensive plans + Expensive phones = me no like
Luis Ron LG trash
Chris Robato This phone has a great screen that matches up with the GS2.
Robert Centennial I don't care I don't want to hear about another android device until it actually does something different.
Anthony Douglas This is a good starter phone for an 8 year old.
George Deleija Sprint can play catch up all they want they will NEVER be as good as us. I will give them props for unlimted data but what's the point when wifi is everywhere nowadays
George Deleija We've been playing around with this bad boy at our store. With this,16gb razr and the rezound at 199 our lineup is blowing away the competition!
Victor Rios Verizon sucks plain and simple...I'm happy with Sprint and waiting to get the Epic 4G Touch when I upgrade.
Hunter Tea Rezound LG has a very bad track record
Clemente Miklavchich in my country even 3g is not suppoted on like 50%
