Reviews summary

4.5/10AVG.
RATING
Based on 13 reviews

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

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 now... More
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 now completely broken. It is a good phone, but breaks too easily and is not worth it.

I have had one for about 5 years and I love it no problems with her. The battery after 5plus years won't hold charge for long so time for a new one!

Great phone, but...

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 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 and pictures capabilities; the pictures always turned out clearly and the videos weren't choppy. However, the button for the internet was always getting pressed in my pocket and costing me extra, which was annoying. I was peeved when I first got it because I was told it was a full touch screen, but only the dialing worked. Besides those minor things though, I really liked the keyboard and the phone in general. Beware, though, the toggle in the middle always gets stuck. Less

Can't wait to get rid of it

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'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 months before I am due for an upgrade. I would give this phone a review less than 0 if the site would let me! Less

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

I picked this up on clearance ($50/no contract) to replace my beloved LG Rumor (which had died).

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 phone very hard on the thumbs. The keyboard buttons are small and crammed and the joystick is so far down at the bottom that I find using it for even a few minutes makes my hands sore. I fear this phone will give me carpal tunnel if I am not careful. It would have been better to have a touch-screen feature beyond just the numerical pad to alleviate the strain. I miss my LG Rumor but this will do as a temporary phone. One other thing to mention, this phone is very slippery in the hands. Less

Great for your first phone.

I just bought one of these for my daughter and one for my son... 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...

I just bought one of these for my daughter and one for my son... 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 teenage child's first phone... It may not be called a smartphone, but I am a smart mom, cause if they break or get lost like kids do, I am not at a great loss financially. Less

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 with big hands could not text very well though. Less

Worse Phone I have ever had From LG

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
