The LG Nitro HD is big in every way on paper: 4.5-inch screen, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel camera. But while those stats are great, the Nitro HD falls short in many areas that other manufacturers have tweaked to improve user experience. When other companies are paying more attention to the little things that make using a phone great, a phone like the Nitro HD isn't going to cut it by just being good enough.
The Nitro HD is a big and solid-feeling phone, with a plastic textured back that comes off for access to the battery, SIM card, and microSD slot. The rounded edges and smooth bezel make it a little slippery to hold.
