LG LX-160 review

5.4/10 AVG.
RATING



5.4/10
Informr score
The LG LX-160 currently has an Informr score of 5.4 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 11 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The LG LX-160 is one of those “other” phones made by a company known for its sleek, thin brushed metal entries such as the Shine, LX 8700, Prada, etc. But while the LX-160 may not earn its own display booth at a consumer electronics show, it is nonetheless a competent entry that gets the job done.

The LG LX-160 is a small clamshell with good sound quality and provides the user a straight forward application mix, including a task list, world clock, memo pad, and alarm clock. It is Bluetooth capable (up to 20 pairings) and includes voice activated dialing, customizable caller ID and a dedicated text key.

The external display is a humble .83” x .63” STN (96 x 94 pixels), but gets the job done by displaying useful information including time, signal strength, day and date. The internal display is 1.10” x 1.38” (138 x 160 pixels). The keypad is comprised of large buttons that respond well and are easy to press without error.

Web access, email and IM support round out the feature set off this affordable and phone.

The LG LX-160 is a great choice for users looking for a simple, reliable cell phone that includes a practical set of features at a very affordable price.
