    This is a Sprint phone coming to Boost, so plenty of reviews are up.

    According to many people, the device has an excellent and a solid keyboard.
    The Sprint version is running Android 4.0. Hopefully we see 4.1. It will run 4.0

    Sprint pushed the Motorola Droid PRO to Boost as the Motorola XPRT. Motorola Droid PRO had 2.2, but once it was pushed to Boost It was one 2.3. LG Mach might follow the same path.

    Since Sprint was ridding themselves of XPRT inventory. The price was very low. $100 I believe ? LG Mach will hopefully be priced pretty low too.

    Somewhat tempting, but that 800x480 display killed it for me. I love keyboards though. I don't type as fast as an on screen keyboard, but I find it more pleasant to type on keys; I'm more accurate too.

    If the display is anything like the LG Venice, it'll be great.

    Is this better than the One SV?

    I haven't been able to use it yet, but on the 30th or 31st of the month I'll update this post and let you know. To my knowledge, the overall speed of it (hardware) is a little faster than the SV One, however the price is a dramatic difference. $180 to $280.

    Personally I'd go with the SV One, only because it has Beats Audio, and the LG Mach does not. However if you want a full qwerty keyboard, then go with the LG Mach.

    They both seem to have the almost same type of processor so they might be somewhat equally faster and well the One SV has a better gpu and has beats audio so I kind of prefer the SV, I am not much of a keyboard fan, especially when those eventually cause screen problems cuz of the ribbons inside holding the screen and keyboard together

    If you're not a keyboard fan, then there's no reason to get the mach. That should make your decision pretty easy

    Yea right now I'm stuck with the LG Marquee, with so many phones that boost is releasing, my options are getting wider, especially when I've had the marquee for about a year and 2 months and have been watching boost's phone selection widen, I am mostly thinking of getting the SV cuz I want to own an HTC Phone and for the 4g and beats audio

    A lot of Midwest stores still do not have this phone in stock. They should be in sometime this week though.

    Keep in mind that it is only a dual 3G/4G LTE. There is no 4G on the SV One. So if you're going to buy it for it's 4G LTE capabilities, make sure you have 4G LTE in your market.

    I looking towards the mach also cause it seems like a good fit for me. I just hope it gets upgraded to jellybean soon.

    This is not true. I had the One SV for a month and it has 3G. Just check the forum for that phone. The majority of people using it don't live in a 4G coverage area. I had 2 of them go bad for other reasons though and would not recommend the phone.

    What's not true about what I said? You're saying that 2 of them go bad...I'm discussing the frequency rates that they run...nothing about it's quality. Also I'd have to say that you're having a fluke with the One SV. It's a great phone, and I've dealt with many of them. The most common problem are with 3rd party apps messing with the phone.

    I misread your post and thought you said it was 4G only. That's all I was referring to. My apologies.

    I was looking to jump ship from my Optimus Slider on Virgin Mobile. The Mach on Boost looks like at least a couple of levels up from that. At the very minimum, I could load an Office suite, my music, utilities and graphics apps and not run out of internal storage for a long time (the Slider only has 160 MB ----apps are getting bigger ). A much faster, dual-core CPU, dedicated GPU, 4G LTE (future-proof) nicer hardware keyboard and NO MORE LOW-ON-SPACE WARNINGS!!!

    There are plenty of audio apps on the Market that might give the same effects as Beats Audio. I have "Music Volume EQ" and "Poweramp" (license key). Both work great with headphones and external audio sources.
