The LG Neon II, a texting cell phone for AT&T, improves on the original model in several important respects. It includes 3G support, it has a more svelte and attractive design, it weighs a tenth of an ounce less, and it has more internal memory. Unfortunately, AT&T's expensive monthly fees for texting phones leave this cell phone in the shadow of the much more competent smartphones in the carrier's lineup.

So it's another year and we're basically still unchanged with the unflattering performance of the LG Neon II. Not only does it retain most of the same hardware and design elements employed by its predecessor, but its overall performance did not budge a single bit. Even though its $29.99 price tag might prove alluring for some people, especially being a quick message device, there are some far better solutions available on AT&T's lineup that would offer an uplifting experience. And to make things worse, it doesn't play to the strength of text messengers with its annoying  typing issues with its keyboard.

The LG Neon II has a simple and compact slider form factor, with a full four-row QWERTY keyboard, a music player, GPS, quad-band GSM, and 3G support. It's affordable as well. But its touch-screen ability is unique only to the phone dialer application. The 2-megapixel camera isn't much better than its predecessor's, and we dislike the touch-sensitive soft keys. However we applaud some of the feature updates of the LG Neon II, but it’s various quirks prevent us from recommending it as there are better quick messaging devices in AT&T's lineup.

I love this phone as I do most LG products. Battery life is more than one day (compared to the smart phone I previously had). Its easy to use and I really like that you can push a button to end the call rather than having to swipe the screen 10 times. I could wish the manual was a little more comprehensive but I am working thru it. Its fairly easy to navigate thru the different screens and the icons are clear in what they represent. I think this is a great phone if all you want is talk & text which is all I wanted!

Stay away from this phone, you are gonna hate it. It's bad... really bad... I always have to reboot the phone because it has no RAM. I try to open my txt msg inbox, and it pops the error msg : "maximum number of application reached, please close some apps". The thing is, I DONT USE ANY APPS, all I do is talk and write txt msgs. Neon 1 was decent, but I don't know what happenned with the neon but it's terrible... Plus the feeling of the touchscreen is'nt fun at all... And it's a real pain in the ass when u need to use the touch-tone on screen. Anyways ... this phone is a nightmare.

Nothing fancy

This is my first phone, so i didn't want anything fancy but this phone makes me so mad. Its slow and has a tiny memory. I've tried to break it so many times but it doesn't break. I would not recommend this phone to anyone.

its a $150 phone. Good for the price. Has a bunch of useless features that i cant figure out how to get rid of. Keyboard is useable, touch sensitivity is better than any other under $200 phone.

It drives me insane! Most of the "cute software" is useless. It’s ridiculously slow and it’s not always reliable to send/receive all messages. Sometimes I'll have my phone with me all day (fully charged and on w/cell reception) and I’ll go to send 1 txt message and then as soon as it sends I started receiving multiple messages from earlier in the day! Not ok. There is only possibly 1 good thing about this phone is that when I get fed up with it and throw it against the wall it doesn't break.

There are alot of things to love about this phone, but its very slow. It is like a slow computer where you click on something and it does nothing for a little bit so you are unsure if it knows its supposed to do something. Also when you are typing a message on the keyboard, it doesnt put the letters in right away. It is like you type a word and when you are done typing the phone is still putting the letters in. The biggest problem for me was its response time. Also, when you get a message and you click view, it goes first to home screen, then to inbox, and THEN to the message and each of these takes about 3 seconds to do. Pain in the ass. Also the keys are small and hard to press, and when you press the function key to get symbols or numbers, you have to press it every time you press a key. For example, if you wanted to type a 10 digit phone number in a message to a friend, you have to press the function key 10 times (once before each number). Calibration is not very good either - have to press some things several times for it to respond, and sometimes it is really touch sensitive and other times you have to press more firmly. I had it for 2 weeks, it drove me crazy so I brought it back. Had to pay for a new phone, but Im already so much happier with it. I have the LG xenon now and it is much faster.

Guys, I'm showing my new phone Sony Ericsson C905 to you. I want to buy a Sony Ecricsson product long time ago, because you know this brand is liked by all young people. It's I making reviews rarely,so if you think some functions I descriped not well, pls forgive this. Thank you! [B]Outside &Design[/B] [IMG]http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l581/lynn201010/ce.jpg?t=1292468021[/IMG] I'm very excited when I receiving it from Hong Kong .It's an original Sony Ericsson. Since it is a flagship phone, the C905 slider quality will naturally not bad. Semi-metal materials to build the slide slide is pretty smooth, feeling pretty good. The metal slide on the life of a great phones guaranteed! After the slide from the slide, exposing the C905's keyboard, the keyboard layout is relatively traditional. The numeric keypad makes me feel a little regret, mainly relatively soft keys, lack of force feedback, so contact them by hand were not as good, do not know whether the problem caused by the engineering prototype! [IMG]http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l581/lynn201010/zuo.jpg?t=1292468154[/IMG] [IMG]http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l581/lynn201010/cevUR5eWzVT6.jpg?t=1292468153[/IMG] With a black body, looks very cool and solid. I found a obvious logo on the top of its screen, also be the receiver.If solely gives you this model of handset's side to look, you will not think absolutely this will be a model of handset. The reason is very simple, to make one section “the movie king” the rank handset, on this model of handset's all pressed keys is for the photograph design, particularly handset's right flank surface, the shutter key, the photograph browsing cut key, the digital focal variation key has composed the formidable photograph functional key, causes entire handset's right flank seems with DC is entirely alike. But on handset's other sides, has the data/power source connection in left side, the base has the speaker and the handset hangs the rope trough. May say that is quite rich in the side C905 design element! They are blue backlit when the camera is in use, as are the shortcut buttons, D-pad Centre button and side-mounted shoot button. Two further buttons above the screen are also backlit blue when in camera mode. One cycles through various shooting modes, the other through scene modes. [IMG]http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l581/lynn201010/SAM_3769.jpg?t=1292468075[/IMG] When I first look at its screen ,I think the[B] screen[/B] is a little small, why not be bigger? While Sony Ericsson C905 mobile phone equipped with a 2.4-inch TFT screen material, and I seen the real machine's screen after the performance, I appreciated this screen is a plus! Color performance of the screen and the degree of not less delicate in 1670 million color screen. Therefore, the screen skeptical friends can rest assured! [B] Inside functions:[/B] Because this phone is not smart phone, so I am more concerned about is this phone built-in themes. The C905 has built-in 5 themes, each of which only did a very fine. In the main menu mode, I can also change the main menu through the left soft key style, three models: the network, rotation, and any single icon can be replaced. [IMG]http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l581/lynn201010/C905.jpg?t=1292468220[/IMG] I like the phone book which this type of phone card to tag page shows information for me to sort out phone is a very convenient thing, and when I look at the phone book, when viewing a contact specific information is also very convenient. Phone memory capacity, the 1000 phone book information should be enough ordinary users to use. And as the Sony Ericsson W595c, this C905 can show number’s master automatically when dialing the number corresponding to the appropriate phone and call records, so we having the phone number of the first two to three numbers can easily find the appropriate number and Fast broadcast, quite convenient. In the phone call records, the label will shows the page will be set aside again, missed, received, and so apart for us to find! It can be said on the phone this phone has done quite well. [B]About its media function:[/B] Set in the music player, although there is no Sony Ericsson's Walkman series phones powerful performance, but including the "Mega Bass" mode, including a variety of sound modes, plus the addition of surround sound, but also makes the phone music player above. The basic function is comprehensive enough that we usually use. But the only thing make me disappointed is it only has a small speaker on the bottom of the fuselage which makes the sound seemed thin, the sound sense is not so outstanding, just OK. But it offer gravity sensor. So when I playing video, rotated it, the phone will automatically switch the video screen. It’s very cool. [IMG]http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l581/lynn201010/4f750452.jpg?t=1292468562[/IMG] [B] Google map and GPS[/B] It offers GPS module, you can use network-assisted positioning function (A-GPS). The phone also has built-in Google Maps mapping software and navigation software, Wayfinder 7 software, through which complement each other to achieve the goal of mobile phone navigation. This powerful mapping software in the map data quite well done, the map display mode into the standard map and satellite map mode. In the satellite map mode, our aerial view of the surrounding facilities presented in the form of satellite, we can more clearly identify the surrounding environment. [B]Wi-Fi[/B] I also found another important function-WiFi in it. There is little this function in others Sony Ericsson phone before. It makes this phone become more valuable. When I connect WiFi, it will connect network by WiFi automatic. So I can surf internet free , this is one of the most reasons I choosed it. I can enjoy sufting on internet. [IMG]http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l581/lynn201010/ceiJW1O0Ydex2.jpg?t=1292468292[/IMG] [B]Huge digital camera[/B] It has an unbelievable 8-mega pixel, cyber shot, auto focus, image stabilizing camera. This Sony C905 consisted of pointing and shooting, as we ran the phone through a testing gauntlet of photography .Distance-no object.Quality-fantastic. The actual camera photos and videos is a credit to this phone. Additional to the mobile camera, the C905 has a couple of rather good features hidden up its sleeve, which are easily forgotten due to the main 8 mega pixel shout. http://i1125.photobucket.com/albums/l581/lynn201010/ceSAe1ZoSf4A.jpg?t=1292468072 That's the most parts I thought are very awesome of this phone.

Overview: When I first open the box, I saw a black body of it, looks very solid. When I hold it, I felt it is more heavier than other phones. So if I drop it ,it maybe still be solid, will not so easy to be broken. Haha… Introduction: This 9000 GSM phone was made by a Chinese factory, which producted cell phone from 1998,so I trust its quality. Maybe there are not more than one black color. Design& Features: The first glance of it ,I saw a obtrusive word “WiFi”, which on the top of screen. I like the best of it is the keyboard that looks like computer keyboard. A homepage picture on the left. I found the FM, space, alt, sym etc. shortcut Keys. There located a DEL key for my imputing messages, it’s very convenient. So when I using it, just like playing the computer. What is my favourite is the enter key, it’s a round bead, it’s usually be light, if I need to change items ,I only need to slide it, I like the feel of sliding it, it also be very simple, other than typing four keys to control it. I found the aerial on the bottom of its body , because it could used for watching TV, there are two items right it, a micro USB port and a small port for earphone, both not cover with plastic surround, but not affect its well-done. The microphone Is up of them. While on the right of the phone, I noticed the volume control key. The top of this phone is just be smooth. Usability and Performance: The first time I light the screen, there are several Shortcut icons listed on the bottom of it .I usually touched mail and message, it is just locating in the first, it’s very nice for me to check the unread mails and send them back,. With this obvious icon, I’ll not forget to receive messages from my customers and workmates or others. As you know, I’m a careless person, which often forget things. The radio message and voice mail are near to them, but I never use them. Because I don’t know how to use, it seems no need to use. I like more is the internet icon, so no need to search the important function. Moreover than these, I can easy to use the e-Buddy and facebook, that’s wonderful. But I need to apply for a new e-Buddy ID, as I never use it before. What I think the unique of it is the lock icon which located on the right of the screen. I can lock it when I need, but it will not lock if you don’t touch it, even though you don’t use it long time. The most important I bought it is the WiFi connection, there is a Wireless Router in my home, so I can connect to network free, it’s a best advantage for me ,I don’t like to use PC, I face it in office, after I back home, I don’t want to see it again. I just want to watch TV and scan some news in Google by this phone. While What my wife like it best is the camera, it offer dual camera: Back camera 2.0 MP with flashlight (support torch), front camera 0.3 MP ,it’s awe for her, because she like taking photos best , she always hold my phone in her hand to take photos by herself. So presumptuous woman. I have to tell the contact tools are full of it , the Yahoo message ,Twitter and MSN are also included .While sometimes if I have some problems ,I’ll turn help to Yahoo Search. About the TV, what make me disappointed is the image quality of it, after I searched so long time channel, I found 10 channels, but when I watch ,the quality is not so clean, can’t match the real TV actually. But consider the cheap price of it ,I only have to accept this. An exciting function it takes me is the Yami video, I can take a video call with others, this is what I want to do several months ago. Now I can contact with my parent which far from us face to face, I miss them very much ,now I can often see them, very perfect. But I could select one of my sim card to do that.( it can insert two sim cards in it.) This function will cost more telephone fee. But I think it is worth to paying. I was very despairing when I found the system of it is created by this phone company, not Android ,Symbian others, I don’t know how to use this system, I think it will take much time to study it. And if this phone can controlled by touching the screen, I’ll be more appreciate it. But they can’t do all the perfect functions ,all of us need to accept this truth ,even it is iPhone or Nokia. And the another advantage of this phone is the battery life, I have played many entertainment items, but it only took one frame battery . I usually get it to charge once three –four days. The summary If you have enough money you can buy a expensive cell phone, but if you are a common officer worker, I suggest this muti-function phone to you, you can do much as the popular brand phone, I’ll look more on the function and quality, rather than brand. Even though there are some lacking of it, but I just cost 100 dollars, get this awe product, why not?
