LG's Spectrum handset isn't anything noteworthy on paper. 1.5 GHz processor, Android 2.3, and Verizon LTE is nice. But. The 4.5-inch smartphone packs an HD display with a higher resolution than the iPhone 4S. And it's much bigger.

The iPhone's retina display is nice, but at 3.5 inches, it's not as much of an accomplishment. Those pixels don't have to be spread around as much. But a 4.5-inch 1280 x 720 IPS display? That's 329 pixels per inch. And that's sharp as hell. Retina display only hits 326. Stay tuned for a closer look at this brilliant screen. Look for it later this month at $200.
