There are a few apps that come with the LG Quantum straight out of the package. The most impressive one is Panorama Shot. You can use this phone to take 360-degree panoramic photos and it will create the file rapidly. The end result looks great and you will be able to obtain some great pictures with minimum effort. Another important application is Photo Stylist. You can use it to edit your images and add the effects you want. The program is easy to use and the phone will respond to your commands rapidly thanks to its powerful processor. The Microsoft Office package is also included, so you gain full access to .doc documents or Excel spreadsheets.
The LG Quantum runs on a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPUI and 256 MB of RAM, which is a huge advantage over most smartphones around. Every application will load instantly and you won’t have any problems while editing pictures or browsing the internet. The enhanced performance is a result of the hardware characteristics combined with the powerful operating system.
The worst part about the LG Quantum is the lack of expandable memory, a common problem with Windows Phone 7 smartphones. You will only receive 16 GB of free space and you will have to work your way around it.
The 5-megapixel camera comes with an LED flash, which is a good addition for those who want to take night shots. The 5x zoom is fairly effective, but the quality will obviously drop if you decide to use it. You can also record movies in 720p and there are quite a few features that will make your shots clearer. The LG Quantum performs perfectly when it comes to 720p video playback. Not only will the image be perfectly clear at all times, you will also be happy with the sound quality. Plus, the playback is particularly smooth and there are no noticeable problems in this department. The only real problem with video playback is the limitation imposed by the quality of the screen.
Pros and Cons
On the downside, LG decided to cut down on the functionality and create a somewhat small screen for this phone. Even worse, the fact that the phone doesn’t offer landscape mode in any situation will be a serious problem for those who want to take full advantage of the QWERTY keyboard. The fact that you can’t add a memory card and expand the phone’s memory is also a disadvantage.
