LG Revolution Forums Added
The LG family of devices seems to be growing stronger and larger as time goes by and as such, their penetration into the smartphone market is becoming a force to be reckoned with. A few months back, LG introduced a new device that was going to revolutionize their brand, the LG Revolution. Most specs are rather common for the device, which boasts a 4.3 inch screen with a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor on it, a 5 MP camera, and other not-so impressive specs. However, this is the first LG device equipped with LTE technology, which can take advantage of Verizon’s 4G LTE network.

The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
