LG Nitro HD Software Overview (Video)

This time, we take a dive into the software element of the LG Nitro HD. For the most part, we’ve all become accustomed to see a manufacturer-customized skin on any non-Nexus devices. Of course, the LG Nitro HD is no exception.

LG’s user interface maintains a resemblance to Samsung’s TouchWiz 3.0. This gives the icon a very “iOS” appearance. Some users may like this look and other may not. LG has added a set of quick actions to the pull-down notification bar. This gives users the ability to quickly enable or disable silent mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS connectivity and Airplane Mode. Carrier bloatware does (unfortunately) exist on this device; however it’s not overly intrusive or obnoxious. You’ll see your typical AT&T represented FamilyMap, Navigator and liveTV, but you’re also exposed to other pre-loaded apps like MOG Music and Zynga Poker HD.

Overall LG’s go at skinning the Android software isn’t all that bad. When moving apps and widgets a grid placement icon is animated on the screen. This will make it much easier for first time users to customize their home screen layouts.
