LG Rumor Plus review

4.6/10 AVG.
RATING



4.6/10
Informr score
The LG Rumor Plus currently has an Informr score of 4.6 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 14 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

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.
