LG Sway review



The LG Sway is a quality entry-level slider that offers a full suite of basic features such as a calendar, speakerphone, voice activated dialing and a basic WAP web browser, but also treats you to a few secondary features such as Bluetooth 2.1, A-GPS and expandable memory up to 16GB via microSD.

It is a vertical slider that opens to reveal a comfortable and familiar alpha-numeric keypad and a few dedicated keys. The Sway comes preloaded with applications such as Foursquare, Yelp, and WikiTube.

The 2.2-inch 240 x 320 pixel display is easy to view, and the 1.3MP camera with video record rounds out the feature set as being coherent but still entry-level.
