GSMArena

A wonderful piece of design with an innovative touchpad

Well, there's not much more to say really. It sports a great design and in some internet forums they even call it "the RAZR killer". As far as our opinion goes, we have rarely seen so beautifully designed mobile phone.

We can't say anything substantially bad about it, because it's just not expected to amaze in functionality, but in design and style. The only exception is the awkward phonebook which we think should be well developed even in phones that are not business-orientated. It should be more developed in the line of user friendliness because it's not only the sheer capacity that counts after all...

Generally speaking, the phone has claims of being capable of a whole lot of stuff and indeed, we proved that it is capable of them but pitifully, it manages to perform them on the level of a poor student working on a mid-term paper.

But after all is said and done, who are you going to take with you at the next fashion party thrown back downtown? Or maybe not who but what? Our guess is that it will be the LG Chocolate phone because classy company always counts in your favor.

I got this phone for free with a 3 year plan with Bell. Since I bought the phone, it has had very poor mic quality so when I'm talking to somebody I have to try and talk directly into the mic in order for people to hear me clearly, or else my voice will sound low and muffled, probably because the mic hole is so small. ALSO, the phone doesn't have speaker phone and when you use the phone with a bluetooth headset, the phone heats up a little and the battery dies very fast, probably within an hour. You can't zoom in on pictures on the phone, I wish you could. Also the USB cable that comes with the phone has very limited capability. It can only be used with the MP3 uploading software from Bell. All pictures must be retrieved from the phone another way (upload at $.20 per picture or something) and you cannot edit a phone book on your computer and upload it to the phone. The only good thing I can say about the phone is that it has very powerful web browsing capabilities on a EVDO networks, and the screen is very nice to look at because of the sharp, high resolution. People say the menus are slow, which is sometimes true, you may have to wait a second for it to change menu screens. Less

this is an excellent phone. it is very easy to use. it has a great slider feature. if you love sliders or want to get a new pimpin phone this is the one to get. everyone will look at it and want one. it is very easy to use the phone function and the text messaging function. as all other phones when you get a new one it takes you a while to learn it, but this was a very easy phone to learn and use in every day life. so if you are looking for a great phone at a great price you should get this one over any other products. I LOVE CHOCOLATE! Less

My item failed to work properly after the 7 day grace period was up and the warrenty service didnt help either, they said they needed 60 days of working service to do anything! I basically have a 135.00 paperweight. I had to order a special desktop charger from Hong Kong to charge the phone because it was damaged on the inside. I believe this was a refurbished phone disguised as brand new. I know better now than to purchase cell phones from ebay. This was a good transaction, but the service is pitiful. why offer a warrenty when they cant do anything for you? I just ended up putting more money into this thing than I expected. The company from which I ordered it was fairly good with customer service, but the products are crap. It is not thier fault, but they need to keep tabs on where they are getting their products from and offer good warrenties in case something goes wrong. God I hope my desktop charger works or I am SOL and will contact ebay and the seller to get my money back! Since I believe the seller is not at fault here, I will not write a negative review, just the product was faulty and it was a case of very bad timing. Less

Get one for FREE!!! Have a look at this video first: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFKYVE__Mug Just take 2 minutes and read this. This is very EASY to do! It literally takes 10 minutes to setup. Simply follow the steps below. I promise you, this is 100% real. Here is what you do. Click on the link below, register, pick an account type (referral is the easiest) and complete just 1 offer (Very important that you complete the 1 offer otherwise your account will sit in limbo until you do). The best offer to do is STAMPS.com. Its free, all you need to do is register and follow the instructions. And you’re on your way to your free prize for just completing this offer! There are plenty of cool offers to choose from such as Blockbuster online, Stamp.com, Netflix, Gamefly which are services you would regularly sign up for anyways and their all secure networks, why not use them to get a free PS3, flat screen TV, ipod or cash (I did the Stamps.com for a 4 week free trial and it is free! I don’t have to do anything with it). Look at the offers and choose the one that works for you. After signing up and completing your one offer, simply refer 5-14 people or friends (depending on the FREE prize you choose) to do the same under your link (just post the same thing as I have on eBay or any other message board, and you'll get your referrals before the auction even ends.) Then they will ship your selected item for free. No Joke, 100% REAL!!! The reason these companies make money, is because most people don't bother getting all the referrals. All you have to do is post it on EBAY! They use us as advertisement by word of mouth which saves them tons of money which goes toward yours and my free gift. These are legit companies such as Blockbuster, Netflix, Gamefly etc... You can copy my listing if you want. You must use your own authentic link though. You will get your own personal link after your orders placed. Step 1: http://www.YourFreeFlatscreen.com/i... Less
