LG Marquee Review


I needed a new cell phone, so I searched and compared, Sprint and Verizon. recently purchased the Marquee by Sprint, it premiered at fashion week, was released about 2 1/2 months ago. it's very sleek and thin, shiny, and has stripe slate design on the back, it's an android, 3G, Wi-fi. bright screen, double camera w/flash on back and light option on video.

Ok let's see now, battery life' where do I begin, like most androids it's ok, but charging can be suck, so it has to be on charger for hours to get any decent charge very frustrating. But a secret if you charge it while on yellow  before red, it will charge better, once on red turn it off for a half hour. I ordered this based on the reviews from Amazon LG Marquee  and Cnet.com Cnet LG Marquee review . This is a very nice phone, great camera. front and back crisp clear photos, camcorder. If it freezes up remove the sd card, or format it. However you can't take pictures and your ringtone will be removed when you remove your sd card.
