The LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus is exclusive to Verizon Wireless in the United States. In terms of hardware, the Galaxy Nexus features a 4.65-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display, 32GB of on-board storage, 1GB of RAM, LTE 4G connectivity, and Near Field Communications technology.

Description

Motorola's newly announced Droid RAZR Maxx features a chassis similar to the original Droid RAZR but now has a slightly thicker body at 8.99mm. Aside from thickness, there is one more difference: it now houses an extended battery said to provide 21 hours of talk time. When it launches, the Droid RAZR Maxx will come with 16GB of built-in memory, expandable via microSD with a 16GB card included.

The Droid 4 by Motorola features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4-inch qHD screen, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, 8-megapixel camera, and Verizon's practically standard CDMA/LTE radio combo. Packing in all those specs and a full five-row physical keyboard make the Droid 4 a full half-inch thick, about the same as the Droid 3.

The HTC Rezound is an Android powered smartphone featuring a 4.3-inch display with a massive 1280 x 720 screen resolution, along with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, LTE data connectivity, Beats Audio, and an 8-megapixel camera that shoots 1080p video.

The LG Spectrum has a 4.5-inch 720p IPS display with Gorilla Glass, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, 1GB of RAM, a 16GB microSD card, and of course LTE. It should launch with Android 2.3, unfortunately, but Netflix HD and an "exclusive HD ESPN Sportscenter" app will be preinstalled if that helps make up for it.
