The LG revolution is promising a revolution when it launches in Q2 on Verizon in the US so only naturally we went hands-on to find out.

Announced at CES in Las Vegas in January, we were finally able to catch up with the device in Mobile World Congress after missing out on the handset when we were stateside at the beginning of the year.

The LG revolution will bring you a 4.3-inch 480x800 WVGA touchscreen display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 5 megapixel camera, 32GB of memory, and of course 4G connectivity too boot.

Other features include HD support for streaming, playing and recording video, and Android 2.2.

In the hand the phone is well built and performance seemed to be fast based on our quick play of streaming some YouTube video in HQ over the company's stand Wi-Fi (We played with the phone in Spain, which doesn't have a Verizon 4G network). 

There’s also a front-facing camera for video calling and mobile hotspot capability to share a 4G connection with up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled devices.
