Top Ten Reviews

This cellular device includes several additional features that make it even more multimedia friendly

from Top Ten Reviews
The LG Quantum represents a big leap in the right direction for Windows. Aside from its few drawbacks such as its short battery life, large size and lack of memory expansion, this cellular device makes multitasking simple and listening to music enjoyable.

A well rounded experience that offers the additional convenience factor of a physical keyboard

from PhoneArena

If you really despise using touch-only input options, then the selection for Windows Phone 7 devices on AT&T's lineup is primarily limited to the LG Quantum, for right now. However, the inconsistent experience with the platform not being optimized for landscape use can be a hindrance for some. Still, it proves itself to be a decent offering as it accentuates all the core aspects that Windows Phone 7 radiates. Is it by chance a quantum leap over existing devices? Clearly no.

Phone Scoop

It's as solid a smartphone as any on the market, though it's not a quantum leap forward

The LG Quantum combines mostly good hardware with a solid smartphone operating system. Though it still looks a bit too much like a feature phone for my tastes, I am sure many people won't look at it that way. The Quantum is heavy and dense, but offers a roomy QWERTY keyboard for messaging and a fantastic display.

The Quantum performed well at the basics (signal strength, call quality and battery life), and was fast and responsive throughout the user interface. Even the camera and video player stepped up to the plate and delivered a solid base hit.

I absolutely love the phone but it is lacking some of the features I look for in a cellular. First of all it is not able to send videos via text, email or anyway at all. I am very disappointed in this lacking ability for a "Smartphone"! Second of all, the apps suck compared to an Android cellular. Was really looking forward to these features on my LG Quantum but very disappointed with these missing components. :( Less
