The LG Revolution might look pretty familiar to you, and if you’re astute you will recognize that it is Verizon’s version of the internationally-known LG Optimus 2X, in appearance anyway. We can’t find any confirmation that it’s 1GHz processor is the same dual-core Tegra 2 found in the 2X. Our quick time with the handset left us with good feelings about what could be LG’s first legitimate movement in the US smartphone market.

Like the rest of Verizon’s 4G line of phones, a front-facing camera coupled with Skype Mobile provides one of the best mobile video chatting experiences we have seen yet. The speed of the processor and network should cut down on lag and choppy video, but as of now Verizon is only showing the service off via a video demo.

We will have to spend more time with each of the 4G LTE handsets before we decide which reigns supreme, but make your own decision by checking out the little walkthrough below:
