Hands-On with the LG Spectrum and Motorola Droid 4 (Video)

At CES 2012, Verizon announced two new LTE smartphones: the LG Spectrum and the Motorola Droid 4. The Spectrum, in particular, has a 4.5″ 720p HD display and a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 CPU with 1GB of RAM. In many ways, it’s essentially the same phone as the LG Nitro HD on AT&T. It’s thin and light with a fingerprint-prone smooth backing. While the Spectrum comes with Android 2.3, expect an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich in Q2. The Spectrum will be available on January 19th for $199.

The Droid 4 is the one to get if you want a hardware keyboard. It has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4″ qHD display, an HDMI output, an 8MP camera. It also has a new versino of Motorola’s BLUR interface that is lighter than before. It also includes Smart Actions, like the Droid RAZR, to performance certain tasks when certain time/geographical/system status conditions are met. Pricing and availability is still unknown for the Droid 4.
