Pros: Amazing music player & sound quality. Better than any MP3 player I have experienced. Dolby equalizer presets are great. Also contains a search field to find specific songs(great for when you have hundreds of songs and want to find a specific one fast). Has a "Join the Band" application where you can play a drum set or piano with a song or pause the song to play your own tunes(cute, but not very useful). FM radio works great, very loud and clear with plenty preset buttons. Reception was better than the radio in my car. Has Song ID that can tell you the name of the song, artist and album but I am almost sure that uses some data. LG-enV touch info
Easy to transfer music with the included usb cable or to add your own custom ringtones and wallpapers via micro sd card. I have XP and it installed everything I needed just by plugging the phone in. I accessed the phones 1GB internal memory through My Computer and put my music in there with no problem.
Thin, stylish design. Not too heavy and not light enough to feel cheap. Made of metal and plastic.
Spacious home screen with drag and drop shortcuts, a lot like a desktop on a computer. Can also use animated wallpapers. Real calendar, clock, notepad widgets.
Fairly customizable; You can put your own custom ringtones on your micro sd card and apply them to your contacts/call/text tones and do the same with your pictures or wallpapers. Choose from 3 different menu fonts but only two themes.
Has proximity sensor so that when you put the phone to your ear it turns off the display, when you pull it away it turns it back on.
When you turn the phone sideways in text, music or browser mode it automatically adjusts to landscape mode thanks to the accelerometer.
Speakerphone is VERY loud and clear and has an easy to access button on left side of the phone for that option as well as an Unlock button, music and camera button.
I love the touch slide up unlock feature. But if you prefer not to fool with the touch unlock just press the unlock button on the side of the phone twice.
Texting is fun with the full qwerty keyboard and usually pretty accurate unless you are going super fast and then it makes some mistakes. You can change the key size to large for fewer mistakes. Also has T9 and various settings for predicting text. I don’t think that any virtual keyboard is going to be as accurate as a hardware keyboard, but it does the job without the bulk of a keyboard. Has PEN mode that lets you draw out the letters using your finger instead of typing them in. It’s a cool feature but I think that is too time consuming and hard to do with a finger. It also has a drawing pad feature that you can draw a message/picture and send it as a picture message.

Cons: Full HTML web browser was disappointing at best. Not Java enabled, can not download images or mp3s from the web browser(which is to be expected anyway). Must go to Verizon URL entry page every single time you want to enter a URL. Does not have URL entry bar at top of browser.
Camera doesn’t have flash(WHY!!?), picture quality is decent but not amazing and has a slight shutter delay as do most cell phones.
Screen isn’t as bright as I would have liked, but it’s acceptable. Seems to be very responsive and accurate, except that it sometimes selects what your finger lands on when scrolling through the menus.
It only has two color themes but since they are only really visible when in a menu it’s no big deal for me.
Social network shortcut isn’t what you think… it’s only a shortcut to text message your status updates or pictures. It’s nice, but not an actual application like what I expected. I am glad that it doesn’t use data though.
You have to take the batter COVER off to access the micro sd slot but at least you don’t have to remove the battery itself.
You must have the earbuds plugged in to use the FM radio and it does not come with earbuds(again, WHY? lol). Also, I would have loved to seen the FM transmitter on this phone and a FM radio record option.
Call quality seems to be average in my opinion, I say average because I have heard a little bit of static on my end where I have never heard any with my old PPC 6800.
I would have liked for the battery covers to be metal instead of plastic because that chrome coating starts to peel off after awhile making it look very cheap and ugly(my husband has the LG Rhythm and the chrome is all but gone from the plastic). They may have to be plastic in order to snap on though, so who knows. The battery cover colors should have also been unisex… there is NO way my husband is going to use a purple battery cover lol.
Overview: Overall, I recommend this to any music fanatic. On the other hand, if you are looking for a phone with excellent browsing/web downloading capabilities, I suggest just going with a smart phone.
