Weighing in at 6.06 ounces, the Verizon LG Revolution is not only hefty, but awkward as well. While the 1Ghz Snapdragon processor has no problems keeping up, there are some notable issues which the review covers.
For example, the 4.3 inch TFT display (800×480) colors are washed out and the contrast is sub-par. Rotating the device causes the color cast to fluctuate as well. Blacks are more of a dirty gray, especially compared to the AMOLED devices on the market.
Thus far, the LG Revolution isn’t anywhere near the “wow-device” Verizon’s PR would like us to believe. If this is the way we’ll see mobile technology in the future, then truly a revolution will be needed.
The LG Revolution is available from Verizon for $250 with a two year contract.
