I was doing some searching for the VZW data given to me at the store on the LG Revolution, the VZW website says 768MB... For what it is worth...
I just got back from Seattle testing out the 4G LTE capability of the LG Revolution, posted screenshots (Different site) here:
and LG Revo 5MP Camera Shots here:

I am really trying to compare the LG Revo to the Charge I took back last week. The Revo was not getting the same 25MB Down speeds as the Charge, (I know it is unrealistic to expect this all the time, but same area, 1 week later should be about the same throughput), battery life ropped 60% over 4 hours of moderate LTE usage, the Charge would have dropped about 30% in comparative situation.
My battery post is here:
The GPS function was really good on LG Revo, I had to install the voice recognition app to work with Google maps, other Android phones I have owned already had this installed, no biggie, thanks BING/Microsoft. The phone was hooked to charger while using GPS, dropped from 100% to 95% within 1 hour drive to ferry... Giving you some idea on distance, about 45 miles- Down to 95%hitting LTE network at Bainbridge Island Ferry Terminal. From here it was straight down... 60% in 4 hours gone, getting into my car to go home, 35% plugging into USB port.
That is another glitchy thing. USB plugged in when rebooting leaves the Icon in the notification bar until you reboot again without the USB plugged in... Kind of makes you mad. Jury is still out, do not know if future VoLTE is worth the battery drain.
Pictures also were posted as I said before, they were not bad, but not as good as the Samsung Charge 8MP at a distance. The light environment on the water today really was poor for awesome photos.
Thank you for this thread.
I am torn between the Charge and the LG right now, and this is helping my decision.
The data speeds alone are swaying me to lean towards the charge, but I want to know how well the HDMI out works on the charge, because I heard the LG is very good.
One question I have not seen answered.. does the LG do voice and data at the same time? And if so does it do it in 4g and 3g areas like the TB? Not a necessity but comes in handy sometimes

No the LG Revo at this time (in a 4G area only) can only do Voice (with 3G EVDO/RTT Radio) and Data (using 4G LTE Radio) at the same time.
It is not like the the TB which can do 3G Voice and Data using its SVDO radio or it can do like the Revo does in a 4G network area listed above, same process. Eventually the LG Revo will be able to do both Data and Voice over 4G, using its VoLTE Chip technology, something the TB cannot do or will not be able to do. By the time VZW phases out 3G, these phones will all be dead and gone... So IMO, I do not believe you have to have a VoLTE phone right now.
I was surprised the other day. I was on the phone with my wife, and was able to look up an address for her while on the phone. I'm in a strong 4G area, so that's a bonus. It won't work over 3G, but I've gotten so used to not having data while on a call, that it doesn't matter that much to me. Still nice when it works.
I had att from the time 3g rolled out and I only used data and voice at the same once or twice. I think its nice to have the choice but I don't really think that's a deal breaker with people anymore.
Back on topic, the UI on the Revolution is starting to grow on me. I like the collapsing categories. This is way more efficient than the Motorola UI and the Samsung UI on my Galaxy Tab.
