I have been using a LG Nitro HD since quite sometime now. While the phone does not run the latest version of Android or has any stellar feature, it gets the job done for me. However, the biggest issue with the Nitro HD for me has been the extremely poor battery life. The phone absolutely struggles to last even 8 hours on a single charge with a couple of email accounts syncing in the background.
AT&T has just announced a new addition to its true LTE range of handsets, the LG Nitro HD. The Nitro HD is also the first phone to hit AT&T’s stable which will come with a 720p HD screen.
With the LG Nitro HD as one of our last smartphones to arrive in 2011, we’re closing out the year with a bang,said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. We’ve seen others get close to a true HD experience on Android superphones this year, but Nitro HD is the one that does it right.
The LG Nitro HD sports a gigantic 4.5-inch True HD (720p) AH-IPS display. The handset is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and packs in 1GB of RAM along with 20GB of on-board memory (4GB internal+16GB microSD card). Other key features include Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS with A-GPS, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct and a bunch of sensors.
At the back of the Nitro HD is an 8MP camera which is also capable of recording videos in Full HD (1080p) resolution. The handset will also support AT&T’s fake 4G network – HSPA+ – as well as the real LTE network. The handset will also come pre-loaded with HD games from Gameloft and Zynga Poker HD.
The LG Nitro HD will be available starting from December 4th for $250 on a two-year contract.
