LG Revolution makes a second trip to the FCC; more power conscious
This time however, FCC documents show that the handset is seriously taking into account power consumption a bit more seriously, especially when the other two 4G LTE smartphones before it are known to be battery guzzlers. Specifically, we find changes that are related to the Mobile Hotspot and power reduction modes of the handset, which ultimately should contribute to better battery life in general. Still, its appearance over at the FCC indeed gives some hope about an imminent launch, but then again, we’ve experienced prior 4G LTE smartphones being delayed slighty.
Nonetheless, it’s nice to know that power consumption is seriously something taking precedence with the LG Revolution. Let’s hope it we’ll know more about its release very soon.

Good to know at least one company is somewhat interested in preserving battery life!

The Droid Charge gets two days of use before needing to be charged. That is impressive. I might have considered it if it had a stronger processor. Especially if the Droid X comes encrypted again. Verizon needs to bring some real devices at a fair price. No one likes 2 year contracts at 300 dollars. I hope they change their ways on this or I might actually switch Sprint.

Plus this is a downgraded version of G2X, don't why Verizon aren't getting the best versions of these guys, kinda disappointed and that 200 plus price, lame

With all these 1.2 dual core processors and qhd screen resolution phones coming out. I am not even going to bother with LTE phones yet. I don't care for 4G until it's in my area and that could be well over a year from now. So my money is on the Droid 3, if it has LTE or not. It seems like Verizon has had some serious issues with LTE because so far every LTE phone has been delayed and has had software issues. I really think Verizon should have worked on their LTE network more and just had these phones released as normal 3G phones. Oh well what is done is done!
