Hi, I'm new to the Specctrum thread. I bought mine off Ebay and it will be here in a couple days. I have the Rezound. I love my Rezound, but due to the fact that most bluetooth headsets don't work well on the Rezound (known issue), I decided it was time to swap out phones instead of buying every headset on the market to find one that works on the Rezound. I chose the Spectrum because of the screen, and the fact that it has the same specs. I played with it at the Verizon store and boy were they bashing it! "You won't like it, battery sucks, nobody likes the LG interface, etc". I told them I had an LG and didn't mind the interface (besides, I use ADW or some other launcher anyway) and the battery life on 4g phones is going to suck and I accept that. I always buy an extended battery and a spare regular battery so I can switch them out as needded. Verizon reps push people try to steer people to the phones they need to move. They did their best to make me go for the RAZR over the Rezound when I bought that phone. Turned out RAZR sales weren't where they needed to be. Not my problem.
My first Android phone was an LG Ally. I had a blast with it. Rooted it and ran a custom ROM on it. Loved it, but needed a bigger screen. Moved to the Droid X. Love it, but needed to move up to 4g speeds. Bought the Rezound, love it, but need one that works with BT headsets as I drive a lot in my work and although the Blue Parrott trucker style headset does work with the Rezound, it messes up my hair.
So, I'm hoping the Spectrum can deliver what my Rezound does, and then some. The screen on the Spectrum is truly amazing. It looks like a great phone that gets a lot of undue bashing because LG made it. If they can deliver a fast 4g great running device that won't mess up my hair, I'll be a happy lady. I will probably root it since I have no warranty with it.
