Great web browsing and messaging abilities as well a capable camera and large displays

from MobileBurn

Unlike the LG Voyager, which lacked the nuts when it came to enterprise email support, the VX11000 enV Touch is a pretty capable tool in the hands of somebody wearing a suit. In spite of that, the suited crowd is probably not the target demographic with the enV Touch.

For people that want great web browsing and messaging abilities as well a capable camera and large displays for watching videos, the enV Touch was made for you. It is a great do-anything handset that's only obvious drawback is its size. But if you can find another device on the market with dual 3-inch displays that is smaller, buy it. For the rest of us, the LG enV Touch is about as good as it gets on Verizon these days without moving to a smartphone. We give it a "Highly Recommended" rating....

Overall, I really like this phone. I can start by saying it's durable and reliable. My dad had it for 3 years, then when he switched to the Droid I got his enV (first touch phone for me, whoo whoo (: ). I've had it now for about 6 months. It sill works great, it's still on the first battery. It keeps a charge for a while, and I plug it in every night even if it dosn't need a charge. It handles you tube videos, almost every website I've went on, and the music that comes out of it is great, what with the dolby surround. The sound is even good on external speakers, something my previous phone wasn't good at. I don't do texting (I TALK to people), but my sis has used it a few times and from what she says it's good for that. I take pictures at college and send them to my folks all the time, works great. I have just two problems with it. One is that the video camera records in terrible quality. The other problem concerns the power button. I carry it in my front jeans pocket, and for some reason the power button gets pressed and it turns off. I just ordered a snap-on case, hopefully that will fix the problem. Less

This LG phone started shutting down randomly 2-3 times per week after about 8 months. After 14 months it started shutting down 2-3 times daily. Neither LG or Verizon would replace it since it was older than 12 months, eventhough it is a common LG problem. If you search the web you will find many users with the same problems. After several calls and very poor responses to my inquires from LG I conclude also that their customer service is severly lacking and incompetent in responding to this problem. I strongly recommend you avoid buying LG phones. I will never buy another LG product. Less

Phone shuts off Unable to unlock to receive calls Screen goes blank Keypad too small (have inadvertantly forwarded the phone several times) Speaker phone does not activate at times when you open the phone Battery life stinks Total unusable outdoords (cannot see screen) Please read CJ "ChefJeff"'s review. 5 stars..."absolutely brilliant" he says...until he used the phone for 6 months..."I should not be having these problems after only 6 months". Then after 9 months..."Envy Touch died!"..."Never again will I buy LG phones! Total unreliable!" The people who gave this phone 5 stars clearly are affiliated in some way with LG...or have not revisited their initial reviews as ChefJeff did. Add Verizon's lousy customer service...and you have the worst of combinations...bad phone...bad company. Amen ChefJeff...Amen. Less

Pro: the texting features are really nice. Con: glitches, software problems. Using experience: 1 years this phone is horrible. i've gone through four and they've all had the same problems. the screen goes white, the time and date on the external screen disappeared, when i open the phone half of the menu screen pops up and the phone freezes, it never registers that i have a memory card in it, and the instant text box always freezes and erases the texts. the EnV touch is an extremely delicate phone and one drop screws everything up. i actually went into verizon with one of my friends to replace it and the lady said that all flip phone have these glitches and minor problems, but if they knew about them why would they sell the phone and not try to fix it. personally, i recommend spending the extra hundred bucks or so for the Droid.

I have to admit, I'm loving this phone so far. I've only had it a few days but the interface is extremely elegant and intuitive and I love the animated wallpaper and camera. The web browser is great-- it streams video amazingly and the resolution is superb. It is a bit bulky, and I can't really wear it on my belt because it opens whenever I brush up against something, but for me it's worth it because this is the first phone I've been able to type long e-mails on because the physical keyboard is such a breeze. I like that it keeps the internet going when you close or open it. I also love that when you open it mid-conversation it automatically goes to speakerphone. It seems like a tad of a waste to have two screens like it would be elegant to slide the keyboard sideways so you can use the touch screen and keyboard at the same time instead of having to switch back and forth between open and closed. There is a mouse arrow for navigating on the inside screen but it's slow and cumborsome after you've gotten used to touching. I also keep wishing they had put the camera on the same side as one of the screens so that I could do video-skyping. My biggest gripe so far is that I didn't like any ringtones it came with. The music ones all sounded the same and there were very few non-music ones to choose from. I'm afraid that for the first time I'm going to have buy a ringtone. Can't help but wonder if they did that on purpose. Still, if you plan to do a lot of e-mails and web surfing but don't want to pay the $30 extra per month in smart phone charges, this is the phone for you. Less

Pro: + Inside QWERTY keyboard makes sending text messages easy. + Durable. Con: - Poor battery life. - Terrible touch screen responsiveness, limited function. - Bugs and glitches create a very frustrating experience. - Few features. Using experience: 1 years When I purchased this phone in September of 2009, I was immensely excited. The phone seemed great, and upgrading from my LG enV2 (returned 3 times), the thought of having even a working phone was a great one. And it's got a touch screen, what's not to love, right? Well, since about a month after purchasing the phone, I've been counting down the days until I can upgrade out of my contract. (Still over 11 months to go.) The phone's just as buggy and problem-ridden as my enV2 was, and has depleted my faith in LG products for the time-being. My primary problem is not with function, but reliability. I never know if my phone is going to be on or not while I'm not using it due to its common tendency to shut itself off (and reset my settings in the process, removing my wallpapers, themes, defaulting my display settings etc.) The inside QWERTY is fantastic. And then there's the touch screen. And if you are a heavy "text-er", I can assure you that you will never text on the touch screen. The screen is too unresponsive and inaccurate to make one want to use it for even the simplest of texts. In fact, using the front screen in general is a painfully frustrating task. For example, trying to use the preloaded calculator results in many tapping errors, which makes you want to use the inside keyboard for calculations, which unfortunately limits your options. Pocket dialing is common practice, as the phone manages to unlock itself FAR too easily. The "Touch" portion of the enV Touch turns out to be its weakest feature, and this is a disappointment for this featurephone. The LG enV Touch is a disappointment for me both as a phone and as a forthcoming sign of the direction the brand is taking. Instead of bridging the gap between dumb and smartphones, the lack of features, glitches, poor battery life (hardly lasts a day with average use), and a horrid touch experience push this phone into the realm of the dumbphone, emphasizing the dumb.

The LG Env Touch seemed to be the perfect phone for me... Loved that I could read texts and speed dial with just the touch of a button. But also love that when I want to send a text I just have to flip it open and type it out with ease... All was well until my screen started freezing on me about 4 mths after I got it, and would black out while on a call so couldn't access the dial pad to type in my password for voice mail or push #2 whilst being prompted on an automated call... very frusterating!!! Then my internal screen started fuzzing out... I have not yet had the phone for a year yet and I cannot read anything on the interanl screen now and the whole phone is on the blink... I didn't buy a warranty when I bought this phone , they have all lasted until my two year contract is up, so no help from Verizon... So I am having to pay full price for a replacement phone which totally sucks! I am just hoping they will be able to retrieve all my info before it blinks out completely... Less

Pro: Kinda hard to say at the moment. Dont really know if it's the phone or Verizons service. I will say it was a good phone when it worked Con: Battery life was speradic. Software problems Using experience: 10 months Probally the worst phone and biggest waste of my money. I went through 4 replacement phones in less then a yr. Had all sorst of problems original one had a software corruption. Then from there on I'm sure I had the same problems the privious owners had with verizons so called "like new certified" scam. I was finally offerd an erly upgrade and went to a Droid 2. So time will tell if this hole smart phone idea holds water for me. I swear if this Droid gives me the same crap as the LG did I'm going to Wal-Mart and buying a $10.00 trac-phone! Less

The LG ENV touch was my first entry to touch-based screens (I'm still waiting for the iPhone for Verizon - let's hope for early 2011) and I have had it for a year because if I have given a review when I first got it, I would probably have written and raved about it. But here is my feelings about the phone afterward. After I purchased the LG ENV Touch, it seemed in July 2009, it seemed that right after, there were a good number of better phones that came out right after. Droid-based phones, new touch devices and granted, this is common and the fact that this phone did not need a data plan which was convenient. But if you are planning to get the LG ENV Touch, there are three things I do recommend. And if anything, you can learn from my mistakes as I tend to drop my cell phones and well, not take the best care of them, like I should. 1. Buy a screen protector - Had this in my suit jacket along with my keys and sure enough, big nice scratch on the screen (sigh). 2. Buy a case protector. No, not the thin ones for aesthetics. I'm talking like those Body Glove protectors that are thick because I've dropped this phone many times. You could try your best and not try to drop it but things happen and in my case, it has created this warping around edge of the top right (obviously some screen damage). 3. Buy a micro SD card. No you don't have to buy an expensive version, don't be fooled by "cell phone only" as Micro SD card is the same no matter what. With that being said, I've read people not having any success but using Sandisk cards which I do use and I purchased it cheap like $2.99. Do not spend over $15 for one. Shop around. POSITIVES: - Great for texting and also for those who use it as an MP3 device to listen to music or podcasts. Great for those who need to store a database as you can read your excel spreadsheets, documents and PDF's. - Great keyboard, easy to use. - Not that hard to use bitpim on but much easier to load your ringtones on your Micro SD card. - Ease of use. First time, it might take an hour but after that, you'll get the hang of it. - Connection to your computer via USB to transfer files (to the Micro SD card) is easy. - Quick charge via USB. - Love the speaker phone. - Easy to use apps. - Views .wmv videos quite fine. NEGATIVES: - Battery life - Like most cell phones, you may need an extended battery depending on your use. - This is where I recommend the case because I've dropped this and now the sensitive touch screen will not work that well, I have to flip it on to get it to work. To make things worse, I need to keep the lock on because it starts acting like it's possessed and starts acting on its own as if someone is trying to do several inputs. Weird. - Photos are not as clear as my wife's Samsung touch phone - Views .wmv videos but very few formats and they have to be several minutes not long. Tried to put a movie and video wouldn't work, just audio. Overall, The ENV Touch is a very good phone for the basic use having a cell phone and of course, bells and whistles to accompany it. It's not a smart phone, so no data service is required. Since mine is the first generation, one can wonder what LG will have next for the next generation of it. But learn my situation and get the screen protector and a thicker holder/protector and also a Micro SD card (since they are cheap these days). Less
