    Finally have my Revolution

    So, I finally have my hands on my new LG Revolution and while there is a lot to love (Netflix and 4g LTE FTW!), there is a lot that needs to change lol. For starters, it comes pre loaded with the VZ Navigator, not bad if you feel like spending an extra $10/mo for what Google is willing to give you for free. Additionally it comes loaded with tons of crap applications, demos and advertisements which cannot be removed.

    Overall the phone is fantastic, Netflix is clear, fast and crisp, input with either the LG keypad or Swype is accurate.

    On the To-Do list:

    1) Root this thing
    2) Find an Otterbox (so far only the holster case was available at Verizon).
    3) ????
    4) Profit!

    Just got it two hours ago and have been copying files the whole time so not too sure. I always have two batteries for any phone and work on an ambulance with power outlets, so it's not really a major concern for me. I'll try to post back when I get a chance to evaluate it though.

    Just got home with mine loved it out of the box. launcher is quick has some nice features but seems to slow down pretty quick. can't comment on battery life just yet still charging it up. Phone is fast but alot of force closes already. Just a little heavier than my DX. Email app keeps crashing if i add more than one account also dosent have stock news and weather or power widgets.

    Can someone post some pics taken with the camera? I'm interested in how the images look in comparison to the Charge and TB.

    Also I'm curious about the bootloader. Is it unlocked? Has anyone tried rooting this yet?

    I don't know much about rooting a phone but I'm interested in learning.

    Camera looks pretty good snapped a few if anyone wants to see. was worried about going from an 8mp to a 5mp but seems good.

    I got mine today at lunch, haven't had much time with it, battery was pretty much dead when I got it, but the screen is sharp, bright display. Boy Genius Report "hands on" was a joke to read, bashed it up and down with no proof or substance. Claimed the display was dull and pixelated, NOT true.

    Now there is a fair bit of bloatware so I am looking forward to getting it rooted and taking the crapware off, that should free up another 300+MB of space. Its snappy, UI is very responsive and not heavy at all.

    I thought the LG Revo came with the ability to use the LG wireless charger out of the box, at least that is how I have been reading it. Well you need a different battery door and of course there is no way to know IF that new battery door will fit into any of the cases. I just don't get the where LG went on this one. Put the door in, it will get you the sales for the $69 charger. My guess is Verizon wanted the $29 add on for the door and the $69 for the charger. Typical Verizon GREED.

    Oh btw great photo's so another item to shut the whiners up about, complaining that its only 5MP, really it must have a better sensor than HTC's ThunderBolt since every photo I took with mine was crappy.
