LG Marquee Hands-on

LG Marquee Hands-on
Well, it surely took some time for it to arrive stateside, but the LG Optimus Black that we first checked out way back earlier in the year at CES 2011 is finally coming to Sprint as the rebranded LG Marquee.

Besides the obvious Sprint branding placed near the earpiece, everything else about the handset is pretty faithful to the design of the LG Optimus Black, which of course isn’t a bad thing at all. Amazingly, the handset has a chic design since it’s streamlined at an eye-catching 0.36” profile – and that’s uniform throughout the handset. In addition, its glossy plastic exterior enables it to be absolutely lightweight feeling in the hand. Lastly, the biggest drawing factor is none other than its brilliant looking 4” WVGA NOVA LCD display.

In terms of hardware, it’s packing a 1GHz single-core processor with 512MB of RAM, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, front-facing 2-megapixel camera, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0. Furthermore, faithful Android users will be pleased to know that it carriers a mostly stock Android 2.3 Gingerbread experience – albeit, it offer Sprint’s ID packs. With 4G all the rage nowadays, it can surprise some to know that the handset is simply a 3G enabled device. Still, for $99.99 on-contract, its pricing is equally as alluring as its beautiful looks!
