Tonight we got some hands-on time with the new LG Nitro HD, which is the first AT&T phone to sport a True HD display. The Nitro HD is also AT&T’s third smartphone to come with 4G LTE support.
Our initial impressions of the device are very good. For starters, the display, with its 1280 x 720 resolution is super sharp and super vivid. Needless to say, videos and photos really pop on the Nitro’s True HD AH-IPS display. It will be interesting to put the Nitro’s screen to test next to the Super AMOLED Plus display that can be found on the Samsung Galaxy S II.
Also, despite the fact that the device packs in a super large 4.5″ display, the LG Nitro HD doesn’t feel overwhelming in our hands, and the device feels pretty lightweight too. To that effect, the Nitro HD is actually giving the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket a run for its money in terms of form-factor.
And thanks to the Nitro HD, we were also delighted, and surprised to discover that 4G LTE is now live in New York. Running on AT&T’s new 4G LTE network, surfing the web on the phone is a lightning fast experience.
We’ll have a full review of the LG Nitro HD up soon, but in the meanwhile, check out our hands-on photos.
