A Truly Wireless Experience
Break free from charging cables with the Wireless Charging Battery Cover (included). Also share videos, HD video, games, or other content wirelessly to larger devices via SmartShare (media sharing via DLNA). The NFC hardware in the LG Spectrum 2 makes pairing a simple process: just tap two devices together. Another wireless feature is the LG Tag+ sticker, which allows you to activate different phone modes with just a tap of your phone. For business, securely connect to your corporate network using LG’s built-in, multi-headed Virtual Private Network (VPN).
LG Tag+ Organization
The Tag+ can be attached to various surfaces including a bedside table, on the desk at an office, or in the kitchen at home, and then set to activate certain on-device modes. For example: after being swiped by the bedside table and put into night mode, Spectrum 2 could automatically switch off radio reception. In the morning, a swipe across the tag in the kitchen would automatically turn on Wi-Fi and launch a weather app or RSS feed. When in the office, the phone could be swiped across the tag and launch any business-specific apps and work e-mail. The Tag+ stickers are user-programmable and spill resistant.
Share info with other smartphones faster than ever. Beam allows you to share contacts, YouTube videos, maps, webpages and more by simply touching two phones together. You can share directions by bringing up the map, tapping the devices together and hitting send.

With these blazing fast speeds, you'll be able to stream HD movies without the annoyance of constant pauses to buffer the video stream--as well as quickly download HD-quality movies right to your phone in minutes. Additionally, you'll be able to download a new song file in about 4 seconds or upload a photo to your favorite social networking site in about 6 seconds.

Business applications that used to require wired networks will be untethered forever, allowing you maximized productivity and efficiency while you're out of the confines of your office. Enhanced security lets you tap into most VPN networks with less waiting, and faster responsiveness enables you to upload 10 MB presentations back to your team in less than 25 seconds.
In areas serviced only by 3G, you can expect download speeds of 600 Kbps to 1.4 Mbps and upload speeds of 500 to 800 Kbps in Mobile Broadband coverage area.

It takes advantage of the front-facing camera and state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to register a face during setup and then to recognize it again when unlocking the device. Just hold your phone in front of your face to unlock (or use a backup PIN).
And the lock screen now lets you do more without unlocking. From the slide lock screen, you can jump directly to the camera for a picture or pull down the notifications window to check for messages. When listening to music, you can even manage music tracks and see album art.Home Screen Folders
Quickly access related apps right from the home screen by organizing apps and shortcuts into folders--just drag one app onto another to create a folder.Multitasking
Multitasking is even easier and more visual in Android 4.0.4. The Recent Apps button lets you jump instantly from one task to another using the list in the System Bar. The list pops up to show thumbnail images of apps used recently--tapping a thumbnail switches to the app.Voice Input
The new voice engine in Android 4.0.4 lets you dictate the text you want, for as long as you want, using the language you want. You can speak continuously for a prolonged time, even pausing for intervals if needed, and dictate punctuation to create correct sentences. As the voice input engine enters text, it underlines possible dictation errors in gray. After dictating, you can tap the underlined words to quickly replace them from a list of suggestions.

The one area where this phone really shines is reception. The Galaxy Nexus literally could not pick up a signal at my house, the S3 was not much better and the Motorolas had a solid 3G signal but barely picked up a 4G signal. This phone has been on a 4G signal over 90% of the time. Calls are crystal clear too. Not sure why the LG has a stronger signal at my house than any of the other phones but it does.
The IPS HD screen is awesome too. Much better screen than some of the more expensive phones...
It comes with some delivered themes. The Thor one is especially cool.
It runs fast too. It had some delays when I first started using it but that has cleared up. I deactivated quite a few of the delivered apps that I do not need.
The GPS locks on fairly quickly but not as fast as the Razr M did.
The battery life is average but good enough for me. I am constantly around a charger if needed. If you need great battery life and do not have access to a charger regularly, this might not be the phone for you. On the positive side, the battery is user replaceable if needed. There might be after market options for a different battery but I have not seen one yet. It also comes with a micro sd card slot for expansion. So many phones these days do not have either of these options.
The overlay that LG uses does not bother me. You could always use a launcher if needed.
The phone would be even better with Jelly Bean.Read more ›
-The touch screen is super responsive (sometimes just hovering over a letter while texting is enough).
-Not too impressed with the face lock, I prefer not to look at myself every time I want to unlock the phone.
-Many apps that are linked with your Google account will automatically load onto this phone (with ICS).
-There are a lot of pre-loaded apps (56 total apps), many that I could live without, but most Amazon apps are pre-installed, with a wonderful widget included. Amazon App Store is not pre-installed.
-Smileys are difficult to use in many apps (if you can loacte them at all).
-Predicitve text seems to be only available when texting. Have not seen it in the browser.
-I use Google Voice a lot & messages don't seem to be transmitted as fast as with my previous phone, arrive within minutes instead of seconds.
-In the app drawer, preloaded apps are on first few pages, then apps you downloaded. There is an option to arrange apps alphabetically, but will only arrange downloaded apps, not pre-installed.
Screen is perfect in size, clarity, AND brightness.
Phone is fast and responsive.
Camera snaps quick and clear pictures/video.
Call quality is very good and reception good.
Tactile and intuitive
I wouldn't mind a Jelly Bean upgrade...but it's already very smooth and that's the main feature I see.
Also, it needs more accessories, like a car dock with built in charging...:)
I picked this phone because I found it felt great in the hand, the screen wasn't pentile (pentile gives me headaches) and was also FAR brighter than the S3, and I got it for free. I expected to "settle" for it and find it useable but I'm surprised how nice it is. The UI is pleasing to look at and very very responsive - I don't miss Jelly Bean and its project butter. It's well rounded and I'm a bit disappointed with some reviews it's getting from CNET and other sites because it doesn't have an advertising campaign with it or catchy features that hardly get used (like on the S3-which is still a great phone!)
I came from an HTC Rezound which I liked a lot, but the bigger screen and thinner body of the Spectrum 2 make this a VERY nice upgrade.
1. I chose this phone primarily for the superior camera. My first niece was born less than 3 weeks ago and I plan to take a multitude of photos. :) So far, I love the camera and I really haven't had time to explore it's many extras which look great.
2. I wanted to load some of the photos from my computer to the phone so I connected with the USB cord that comes with the phone and copied them from Windows Pictures onto the phone's memory. I wish I could be more specific with how I did this but I don't recollect but I do remember it was relatively simple.
3. What took me the longest to learn was how to put the pictures in files. I really wanted to stay as organized with them as possible. In researching this, I learned that you can place your "widgets" into files so that your camera appears less cluttered. You simply click and drag one on top of another and they are placed in a folder. You can place many items in these folders, create multiple folders, and title your folders. Your widgets are actually laid out in a grid and so I was able to narrow it down to 2 folders plus a clock and have this at the top, a personal pic, and then the bottom row of icons.
