The Verizon LG Dare is probably touch screen one of the best phones I have ever owned. I have had the phone for 8 months now, I was upgrading from a LG voyager and I’m so glad I went with the Verizon LG Dare. The Dare is not that great for someone not used to a touch screen, but if you are this phone is great and i highly recommend it. LG-Dare info

The touch-screen keyboard is not very good for texting and touch screen is too sensitive for my big hands. The keyboard is great but sometimes a little heavy. The camera is great & convenient so I don’t have to carry my digital camera around. The full browser is amazing. It has a long battery life, my Verizon LG Dare lasts for days without having to charge. LG Cell phone Reviews

When I got the Verizon LG Versa, I fell in love with this phone. This is not my first LG touch phone but I have to say it’s the best Verizon LG Phone I have never had. I have reviewed many since joining Verizon about 3 years ago. In my opinion, this phone is great for anyone.  LG Cell phone Reviews

The Verizon LG Versa has pretty good response to touch screen, the detachable QWERTY keyboard was great but made it bulky, and you have to have it on to play some games was kind of annoying. It does have a very nice camera, and the overall design was nice. I like the way you can get into certain menus from different screens it make it easy to get what you need without having to go back to the main menu! There is more than one way to start a text message depending on what screen you are on! I also like that you can buy other thing for your phone other than a case cover for it! Like I bought the qwerty keyboard for it which really helps to text (and lets face it…who doesn’t) and a game controller! Over all the phone is pretty good. The only problem I have had is the short battery life, I have had in on since 8:00 this morning, and its 1:45 now, and I have sent about 100 texts + and the battery life is at two bars.
