The LG Revolution first debuted back in the 2011 CES event in Las Vegas, and immediately got the attention of the industry watchers and smartphone enthusiasts. The phone was not actually launched on the Verizon 4G LTE network until May 2011, and the big question is, was it worth waiting for? Well we already know from the Thunderbolt that the 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system can do the trick, but we need to take a look at what else LG has brought to the table to start their own revolution. And based on the number of consumers who are searching for Where to Purchase the LG Revolution for a drop dead price, we’re willing to bet that Verizon customers were plenty happy to wait on this new innovative smartphone.
Any phone that launches on the highly rated, reliable, and super fast Verizon 4G LTE network is off with a bang right out of the starting gate. The Revolution features a nice 4.3″ WVGA display with LCD resolution, supporting over 16 million colors for a rich, vibrant presentation.

The design of the Revolution is sleek, and handles nicely, adding to the appeal of why so many smartphone shoppers are looking for Where to Purchase the LG Revolution. While it is in line with standard smartphone designs, it does provide a little extra space between the touch-sensitive Android buttons, which reduces accidental pressing. We thought this was a very nice touch. The build quality is very good, and it feels solid in your grasp. The device offers dual cameras, with a 5 mp camera with LED flash for stills and 720p HD video capture, as well as a 1.3 mp camera for video chats.
