Fly Or Die: The LG Spectrum

The Spectrum has been a busy little diva the last few days, strutting in and out of our NYC studio like she belongs there. So much in fact, that I’ve given her a gender and started to refer to her in gender-specific pronouns. A scary thought, to say the least.

Matt seems less perturbed by her presence, though I was (and still am) more than willing to duke it out with him over the value of this here phone.

Here’s the deal: The LG Spectrum has solid specs — 4G LTE, 4.5-inch 720p TrueHD display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and a solid little 8-megapixel camera all at a reasonable $200 price (on contract, of course). It also happens to look and feel cheap. This is my main beef with the phone, and to me it was a deal-breaker.

Matt, on the other hand, sees potential in the Spectrum, viewing the price-point and the specs as a winning combo (despite the fact that it’s likely to be the ugliest phone in the store). But is that enough to stake his word on it and give it a Fly?
