LG Cosmos 2 (Verizon Wireless) review: LG Cosmos 2 (Verizon Wireless)

 

TheLG Cosmosis a compact messaging phone with a sharp display and roomy keyboard. You get slight improvements over the original, like a 3.5mm headset jack and a music player. Features include a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, Bing search, and a...

The LG Cosmos 2's social networking functions are simply text messaging shortcuts. Overall design and features aren't dramatically different from the predecessor. It does not have EV-DO.

As long as you don't have high expectations, the LG Cosmos 2 makes for a well-built entry-level messaging phone for the budget-conscious Verizon customer.

LG Cosmos 2 ( Verizon Wireless)

 

Even though LG expanded its smartphone presence in the U.S. with phones like the LG Revolution and the T-Mobile G2X , the company still makes plenty of simple messaging phones for those who want something a little more basic. The LG Cosmos 2 is the...

LG Cosmos 2 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Cosmos 2 is a dual-band 1xRTT (850/1900 MHz) device with no 3G or Wi-Fi. That's fine, though; blazing Internet access isn't really this handset's mission. Calls sounded clear, crisp, and loud, in both directions, with no audible background hiss. A...

Great call quality. Roomy QWERTY keyboard. Solid feel. Good music player

No 3G. Weak camera. Middling reception

The LG Cosmos 2, like its predecessor, is a solid, affordable texting phone for Verizon subscribers.

LG Cosmos 2 Review

 

With so much attention given to smartphones by their manufacturers and wireless providers, you'd think those were the only devices available for purchase. Thankfully this is not the case, as there are still easy-to-use basic phones out there, and some...

Calls and speakerphone: We found calls on the LG Cosmos loud and clear for both us and callers. In fact, it was so loud we needed to occasionally use the side volume keys to lower the sound. Using the speakerphone didn't degrade call quality, and we...

Like its predecessor, the LG Cosmos 2 is a basic yet excellent text-messaging phone

 

It is still possible to find excellent messaging phones, and the LG Cosmos 2 is one of them. It makes PCMag.com's list of best phones on Verizon Wireless. Experts report that what it lacks in Internet capability and looks it more than makes up for in...

Roomy QWERTY keyboard, great call quality, decent music player, sharp screen

No video camera, poor photo quality

LG Cosmos 2 – A Compact Messaging Phone

"Worst Possible Phome"

 

Quite possibly the worst designed phone ever. The processor takes forever to keep up with your input, Daily scoop runs ads that take 10 s to get rid of, and all while this chaos ensues you accidentally turn the speakerphone off 30 times. And you can't...

-Good camera

"Worst phone I have owned!"

 

This is my third Cosmos 2 in 9 months and still does not work properly. This thing constantly shuts itself off or reboots. My wife has the same phone and when you receive a text on hers it goes to apps, so it takes a few minutes to use almost every...

Takes good pictures, clear phone calls

Very slow, unstable!
