The Bottom Line With its winning combination of a reasonable price tag, wireless features, and solid performance, the Spectrum 2 is an excellent Verizon handset in its price range. If you can get past its steep price, the massive-screened Motorola Droid Maxx is currently Verizon’s best Android smartphone. The LG Spectrum's clean design brings preppy style to some of the fastest 4G LTE data speeds around. The smartphone's attention to HD is admirable, but a few interface and performance flaws could scare away some. Though it has a few minor flaws, the reliable performance and rock-bottom price of Verizon's Lucid 2 will satisfy first-time smartphone users on a budget. If you're not a shutterbug, the Motorola Droid Razr M's sleek style, fast CPU, and great battery life make it an excellent choice.
