The enV 2 (aka Keybo or VX9100) doesn’t look at all like its prior incarnation. Its smaller, thinner (4” x 2.13” x .65”) and 30 percent lighter. Aside from the cosmetic changes however, the enV 2 is almost identical to the original.

Closed, the face looks a bit strange, with a small rectangular screen at the top which looks squeezed, and the remaining exterior dominated by the keypad. Between the screen and alphanumeric keypad is a dedicated music button, “send”, “end” and “clear” buttons and just above the middle an “okay” button flanked on top and bottom with arrow keys. The black exterior is trimmed in a snazzy faux chrome.

Interestingly, the small external screen does have the benefit of providing a much roomier keypad than its former edition, despite being an overall smaller phone.

The enV2 opens lengthwise to reveal a thoughtful full Qwerty keyboard with small but easy-to-use buttons and a good use of color to distinguish which keys perform additional functions. The internal display is flanked on either side with speakers which, if used in speakerphone mode, produces a surprisingly good quality sound for listening to music.

Other than the fairly dramatic physical makeover, the enV2 retains most of the features of its href="/cell-phones/lg-env/">predecessor the enV. You get a 2MP camera (with the external screen acting as a roomy view finder), Bluetooth, 1000 entry phone book with considerable customizable options, and internal 2.4 inch 240 x 320 pixel display, an MP3 player and video recorder.

Of course, the enV(2) includes all entry level features too, including speakerphone, alarm, calendar and voice recorder.

The enV 2 is an excellent choice for someone who wants very good call quality and enjoys texting, taking pictures and surfing the internet.

The handset featured a spacious keyboard, and a slew of nifty features packed inside

from Wired (over 6 years ago)

Where to begin? Apparently some folks liked the first enV-nothing wrong with that. Hideous, but comfortable to hold, the handset featured a spacious keyboard, and a slew of nifty features packed inside. The enV2 is apparently the end result of spilling coffee on a stack of consumer satisfaction surveys.... More

Can't wait to get rid of this when my contract is up ...

(over 2 years ago)

The first phone I've ever owned and I've had it for over two years now ... quite frankly, I've gotten sick and tired of it. PROS: the pink one looks nice, background for both screens can be customized, photos can be edited (to a limited extent), includes Bluetooth CONS: SD card is REQUIRED... More

Decent!

(over 3 years ago)

I've used this phone for about two years. Pros: Great keyboard - the keys are spaced out well! It's great for texting. Also, it looks great when you flip it open. Menu, etc. look really good. Cons: It looks ugly from the outside. The phone can turn on by itself or dial/call someone - that... More

Absolutely no problems after 3 years of use ...

(over 3 years ago)

This phone gets heavy use and abuse. Used for flicks, pics (when no better camera is available), bluetooth connectivity, web browsing, note taking, calls, music, text messages (big time), gets heated over engines, frozen in winters, tossed into nap sac pouches, sat on, etc, etc. Call quality is excellent,... More

I detest this phone because.....

(over 3 years ago)

I originally had the LG Keybo 1 (in red/pink) and just after the 1 year warranty period was up, the screen that opens with the keyboard wouldn't work. I took it back and was told it would be at "least" $170 just to get it fixed. I figured it was cheaper to buy a new phone, so I bought... More

Don't buy

(over 3 years ago)

Had nothing but troubles. Won't send decent text messaging without turning off. Can't send pictures to anyone or email. Turns off for no apparent reason.

Don't buy this phone.

(over 3 years ago)

I've had this phone for almost a year now, and I don't like it at all. At first I was happy with it because I dropped it in the bathtub yet it still worked after. But then my memory card slot wouldn't work, so I couldn't save that many pictures/ music files. The usb port won't... More

CRAP

(over 3 years ago)

I have had this phone since may and have had it replaced 3 times. and sent in 2 times. It will freeze, shut off, drop calls in VERY GOOD service areas, and delete messages as you read them as they come into your inbox. I advice you do not buy this phone.
