Reviews summary


Does a modern smartphone, with all of its customary bells and whistles, offer you nothing more than confusion? Are you in the market for something a little bit more basic? If so, you are in luck. There are still many good, back-to-basics phones available from nearly every manufacturer and one such model is the 500G from LG, a phone that’s equipped with a full QWERTY keyboard and the Danger mobile operating system.

At release, the LG 500G was available in the US through TracFone Wireless. Its main features include a 2.2-inch color LCD screen, 7MB of onboard storage, a 1-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1, and a built-in microSD card slot. Those are pretty basic specs on a pretty basic GSM/EDGE mobile phone. But that’s also what some people might love about it.
