LG Vortex ( Verizon Wireless)

 

If the LG Vortex looks familiar to you, that's because it's essentially Verizon's version of the LG Optimus T from T-Mobile and the LG Optimus S from Sprint. It has many of the same specifications--it's billed as an entry-level Android smartphone and...

The LG Vortex has a slim and simple design with a good touch-screen display. Features include GPS, EV-DO Rev. A, Wi-Fi with 3G Mobile Hotspot capabilities, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and stereo Bluetooth, and it ships with Android 2.2.

The LG Vortex isn't as fast as higher-end smartphones, and the camera has neither LED flash nor HD video capture. The browser doesn't support Flash video. It comes with Bing search and Bing maps instead of Google's own services. The price is not as...

The LG Vortex is a wonderful entry-level Android smartphone for Verizon Wireless, as long as you know its limitations.

Good mix of speed, screen resolution, and features for the price. Runs Android 2.2. Wi-Fi hotspot mode (at extra cost). Great battery life

Bloatware-infested. Inconsistent UI performance. Difficult to type on virtual keyboard

The LG Vortex, Verizon's version of the excellent LG Optimus One, is not as good as the others thanks to Verizon's bloatware.

LG cut a few corners to make the Vortex a less expensive option. This is obvious in the weaker processor which also results in the inability of the phone to display Adobe Flash websites. It can also be seen in the lack of the flash on the camera and...
