The LG Revolution boasts an impressive 16GB of onboard memory and you can expand it by a further 32GB with a microSD card. That’s good news because this is a great device for video content.
The 5MP camera with LED flash is nothing remarkable. 5MP seems to have become a minimum standard for high end smartphones. However, it does also offer auto focus, exposure control, macro mode, white balance, geo tagging and an image editor. The 1.3MP front facing camera will do the job nicely for video calls and since it will run on the Verizon 4G LTE network that will be a real option. The LG Revolution can also capture video at 720p and 30 frames per second.
It supports DLNA and you’ve got the HDMI port, so watching content from your LG Revolution on your HDTV will be easy. In terms of video formats it will support MPEG4, H.263, H.264 and DivX. It can also stream Flash video content from the Internet.
The LG Revolution can function as a mobile hotspot and provide Internet access for up to eight devices. Naturally it supports 3G and Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth 3.0 and A-GPS.
One of the big selling points is the 4G connectivity, and owners can expect high speed access assuming they have good coverage. Verizon are suggesting up to 12Mbps download speeds on their 4G LTE network. If you like to watch streaming video on your phone then the LG Revolution could be a tempting option.
It has a 3.5mm headphone jack and so will also double up as a media player for music, and will support MP3, AAC, AAC + and eAAC + formats.
