It’s so thin and so light, you’ll hardly know that the LG Marquee, available on Sprint, is in your pocket. We just got a hands on with this phone and the screen, which produces 700 nits of brightness and measures 4-inches, is absolutely stunning. The phone is currently on sale for $99.99 with a 2-year contract, but give it another week and you might see it for cheaper; it just launched on October 2nd.
The Marquee ships with Android 2.3, a 5 megapixel shooter, a 2-megapixel front facing camera for video chats, WiFi, GPS, a microSD card with a 2GB card and a 1Ghz processor. Despite its ultra light weight of not more than 4oz and a depth of .36-inch, its battery is capable of remaining in standby mode for over 7 days and boasts 7 hours of talk time over Sprint’s 3G network. In fact, the Marquee is so light in the hand, it feels as though someone has removed the battery, no joke. Course that battery life will be significantly chopped down if you decide to activate its Mobile Hotspot function, which can support up to 5 devices.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
