Our good friend Kristofer over at Test Freaks just posted a review that I thought some of you might want to have a look at. If you are a Verizon Customer looking for a Android device then the Ally might be on your list to check out and Kristofer puts it to the test:

“Today for review I’ve got another phone for you, this time one for the Verizon network, it’s the LG Ally, an Android based phone that they’re calling a superphone. The Ally is running the newer version of Android, and for the most part it seems similar to other versions, but it does seem much snappier and quicker, but it could be the hardware in the phone that helps that along. I’ve enjoyed my time with this phone, it has a nice sized full QWERTY keyboard, yes it’s slider, but the buttons are nice to type on for whatever you’re doing be texting or sending an email. I’m surprised with the battery life, it’s very good, my experience with Android based phones and battery life hasn’t been a good one, but the LG Ally can last a couple days without recharging it. The Ally also features a decent 3.2Mp camera that even has a macro mode, so read on to learn more about a fairly decent phone from Verizon and LG… “

I am not sure that I would call the Ally a “superphone” when there are devices like the Verizon HTC Incredible available with some stronger hardware features, but Kristofer does a great review and is a good read. So head on over to Test Freaks and check it out if you are in the market for a new Verizon Android Device. Jump after the break for the specs on the Ally;
