Deviating from the standard alphanumeric and QWERTY keypad combo found on previous Rumour-branded handsets, the LG Rumour Plus (aka Neon 2) now sports a 2.4-inch touchscreen display. An enhancement for sure, don't be fooled. This is not your typical touchscreen phone.

This touchscreen can only be used when dialing a number. For everything else, there are the touch-sensitive soft keys below its display and slide-out QWERTY keypad you'll need to use for navigation and data entry.

That said; this phone does pack enough bang for the buck. It has an average 2-megapixel camera around back, Bluetooth with A2DP support, and the best part in our opinion, 3.6Mbps HSDPA connectivity, making it one of the more compact and affordable HSPA handsets on the market today.

There is a lot left to be desired in this phone, but overall what you get with the LG Rumour Plus is an easy to use HSPA-enabled device that's light on the pocket, both literally and figuratively speaking.

Do Not Buy This Phone

(about 1 year ago)

I purchased this phone on a 3 year contract. Just after the 1 year warranty expired, the slide fell out of place and I had to pay someone to fix it for me. It wasn't too much, but still. Part of the phone casing also fell off around this time. It is now 2 years into my contract and the screen is... More

Great phone, but...

(about 1 year ago)

I had this phone up until a few months ago, when it suddenly started freezing and acting strange. The screen became unreadable, and the company I was with said there was nothing they could do that wouldn't be very expensive. Despite this issue, though, this phone was fairly good. I loved the video... More

Can't wait to get rid of it

(over 2 years ago)

DO NOT waste your money on this phone. They are no good. I've had it a little over a year and I am very careful with it but only 3 months after I had it, I could no longer use the screen to dial and today my screen stopped working all together. I can't see anything and I still have several... More

Glad I didn't get bound to a contract with this phone...

(over 2 years ago)

I picked this up on clearance ($50/no contract) to replace my beloved LG Rumor (which had died). The QWERTY keyboard layout on the Rumor Plus is very frustrating and after two weeks with this phone I find I am still struggling to adapt to it (compared to the very easy-to-use LG Rumor). I find this... More

She is 17 and loves to text, talk and is always updating some profile and he is 13 loves games, music and I love that I can keep him close with just one text or call... The phone is affordable, comes in many colours and is perfect for your... More

I enjoy this phone

(over 3 years ago)

although they call it "touch screen" it is not, only for calling. i would have liked the phone to give me the option of texting with the actual screen instead of sliding it a bunch of times throught typing in contact names. I text often and find that this phone is great for texting, someone... More

Worse Phone I have ever had From LG

(over 3 years ago)

I had the phone not even 2 weeks and at my uncles funeral the mirror cracked without even being dropped. To top it off BELL MOBILITY wouldn't fix it! Bell is Fire for money so if you have money to burn connect with bell
