Android Gingerbread Operating System

Android Gingerbread

The LG Marquee runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread) which features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.

Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.

The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.

The Marquee also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

Review is for the LG Marquee for Boost Mobile.

Physical:
It is very light and thin as advertised. Size wise it's about half as thick as most slider phones. While it is about the same size as a Motorola Triumph, it just seems smaller. Seems to fit in jeans pockets just fine. Gorilla glass is nice. I tried screen protector from vendor x-style720 & spshp88 on EBay and can recommend it highly.

Performance:
The speed is fine for daily things, but you can tell that it is right at the hairy edge of being able to handle everything. I've found the game NanoPanda is a good measure of performance, and while the Marquee can play it, it isn't as smooth as say an LG Optimus Slider. Angry Birds plays just fine without lag. Also it seemed to just be able to handle the "leaves on water" live desktop on top of Launcher Pros cube transition as you can see it is struggling a bit to keep up. I dropped it by one star

Media:
HVGA (640x320) MP4 videos play fine - there is a review out there that says the voice is out of sync, but I didn't see that on any of the 3 videos I tried out. Speaker output volume is decently loud, and does not cause buzzing or sound like a piezoelectric buzzer. Didn't get a chance to try out the camera, but while it's nice you can map the custom button to the camera, it seems to be on the wrong side of the phone for that purpose.

Storage:
After loading every app I could think of on internal storage, there was still well over 2GB of storage left. So storage will not be a problem for most people.

Battery Life:
Hard to say, I managed to get the battery down to 40% by incessantly downloading apps and tinkering for about 3 hours, hardly real world usage.

I went from a Blackberry to an Android. When I first got my Android I wanted my Blackberry back. Blackberry was easier to text and it held a charge longer. After 3 months of using the Android, I can't image my life without it. I love all the options an Android and applications. I am used to texting on an Android now. The problem I have is the short battery life. It dies on me after 8 hours and sometimes while charging or talking it gets very hot. It freezes constantly while using Facebook and Live365.I will take to Sprint and have it checked out.

Had less than 3 months & it doesn't work. I work in a hot environment & due to such the screen cracked *never dropped it* & then one day had a message pop up saying to avoid over heating was shutting down.. Hasn't worked since :( Not happy at all! The speaker is below par, you can't hardly hear someone talking to you, horrible battery life, horrible reception *my husband & I have same service just different phones & my phone never picked up in places his does. Also, would have to shut my phone off just to get it to receive or send messages. :( NEVER WILL REPLACE IT WITH THE SAME PHONE... A PIECE OF OVERLY EXPENSIVE JUNK!!
