Pros: 3.5mm headphone jack, usb/wall charger included, touch screen very responsive, comes with two backings to swap out, nice music player, great themes.

Cons: Home row menu buttons have ugly colors that you can’t change, phone’s a little slow sometimes.

Summary: Most of the complaints I’ve seen about the LG Chocolate Touch is that it won’t live up to the Droid, Blackberry, etc. That’s because it’s not meant to. This phone does not require a data plan, and is really more along the lines of the original marketing of the chocolate line, which honed in on the music player and kind of a cute, candybar design.

I must say the LG Chocolate Touch is much more attractive in person, esp. without that goofy purple background. The downside is, the phone will always have those ugly primary colored menu buttons, I’m hoping Verizon will provide more options in future software updates. LG Cell Phone Reviews

The texting on the LG Chocolate Touch is a little hard to get used to if you’re used to buttons, but it’s by far the best non-iphone touch phone I’ve ever used. I have quite a few friends who have touch screen phones, and I feel like I have to jab at the screen just to get it to recognize what I’m doing – not with this phone.

Some nice things Verizon included are a 3.5mm headphone jack, so I don’t have to go out and buy a converter just to listen to some music. It also comes with a usb connector that hooks into a wall adapter so you’re good to go.

The interface of the LG Chocolate Touch is quite pretty, and with the theme and type face options, you can really make this phone look nice. The music player is especially good, this thing may just replace my iPod, and I usually hate using phones as mp3 players.

On downfall of this phone, is that since it’s not as powerful as most "smart phones" it’s a little slow sometimes. I notice it when I go into look at my pictures. Any images that are on my micro SD card take about a second a piece to pop up when scrolling through thumbnails, which can take quite a while since they’re going one by one.

I can’t say much for the internet features on this phone, because I don’t pay for the additional data plan.

Overall, I am very impressed with the LG Chocolate Touch. For ages I have sworn I would never get a touch screen phone unless it was an iPhone, but this one really surprised me. I am very happy I decided to go with this phone.

The LG Chocolate Touch can be purchased for about $79.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year contract.
