4.3 stars

(How we score)

Beautiful display, blazing LTE data speeds (where available), solid hardware build, excellent camera (LG's best ever), 3-button layout under display is easier to use
Poor battery life compared to other AT&T LTE phones, call audio issues, some user interface lag


Without a doubt, the new Nitro HD for AT&T is LG's premier Android smartphone in the United States. It has a stellar spec sheet that includes 4G LTE data, a 4.5-inch 720p HD resolution display, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, and a 1080p HD video-capable 8 megapixel camera. It's also fairly thin, light, and attractive.

The Nitro HD should fear no other device when it comes to specifications.

But when it comes to real world performance, not all of its specs live up to user expectations. Yes, the LTE data is mind-blowingly fast, and the 720p display is drop-dead gorgeous. The 8 megapixel camera takes some of the best shots I've seen on a smartphone, too. But the phone is not without issues. Lag on a dual-core 1.5GHz processor equipped phone is not something I understand, and three hours of talk time from a massive battery is no easier to comprehend.

There is a lot to love about the LG Nitro HD for AT&T, but all the 'oohs' and 'ahhhs' come with a couple of 'ughs' thrown in. You can watch a video of the LG Nitro HD in action after the Table of Contents below.
