LG Viper 4G LTE Review
Throughout our time taking photos with the handset’s 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, one thing is prevalent – and it’s that it exhibits an extremely distinguishable cooler color production. In fact, whether it’s indoors or out, images come out on the bluish side. Otherwise, it captures some decent shots under good lighting conditions, though, noise and bland colors are rampant with low lighting shots. Honestly, it could’ve been much worse, but hey, we’re grateful that its results are still usable.
1080p video recording. Unfortunately, we can’t recommend using it because the quality is diminished tremendously by its pervasive evidence of artifacting, soft details, and inaccurate colors. On a bright note, however, audio recording it pretty natural – though, it’s not enough to dissuade our thoughts about its overall poor quality.
LG Viper 4G LTE Sample Video:
Surprise people! We’re treated to the stock Gingerbread music player with the LG Viper 4G LTE, which is hardly a benchmark thing in terms of visual appeal. Nevertheless, it’s functional in what it does, but its audio quality is average at best – though, it exhibits a tiny bit of sharpness with its output.
Far from being the most ideal thing for watching videos, it’s at least decent enough to enjoy a long movie on the road. Using our test video that’s encoded in Xvid 1920 x 1080, it manages to play it entirely with zero issues.
Relying on the preloaded SmartShare app, the LG Viper 4G LTE is capable of sharing multimedia content wirelessly with compatible devices. Unfortunately, there’s no wired option, so the SmartShare app is the only way to go.

Seems fair. Will there be a Sprint Galaxy Nexus review, or should we refer to the Verizon one?

It's nearly the same as before, so I wouldn't expect any drastic differences. We should be checking it out soon, so keep an eye out.

It is also the first CDMA phone in Sprint's lineup to support simultaneous voice and data over 3G.

Do you know if this is going to be regular for future Sprint phones (especially the Evo 4G LTE)?

When I brought my Galaxy on Sunday afternoon, the Sprint rep told me that they hadn't sold at all up to that point of the day. Why would LG launch this with 2.3 and not ICS? I would be this thing will never see ICS.
