LG Comos Touch Review by Sydney

 

LG Cosmos Touch Rewiew. Earlier this year, Verizon and LG teamed up to release the Cosmos, a mid-range messaging phone that featured a basic dialing pad along with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Responsive touchscreen; interesting and fun UI; excellent battery life; decent physical keyboard

Measly 1.3 MP camera

The Cosmos Touch is nearly perfect in every way. I wish I could give it an A+ overall, but the lackluster camera quality and the resized physical keyboard are negatives that may be hard for some to ignore, though the keyboard may be perfect for others....

T-Mobile MDA Touch Plus

 

Riyad was far from impressed by the original HTC Touch, can the second generation device change his mind?

T-Mobile MDA Touch review

 

Is it a Pocket PC or a smartphone? Neither, really

LG Lifeband Touch review: A mixed-bag fitness band

 

Sometime between pressing my earphones' button to play back my heart rate and peeking through the glare of daylight at my steps taken via the curved black band on my wrist, I felt dizzy. Maybe it was because I needed water. But I suddenly had the...

The LG Lifeband's built-in vibration alerts can be used to motivate, or notify of phone calls; it has support on both iOS and Android phones; the LG Fitness app works with third-party heart-rate monitors, and a few external third-party fitness apps

The Lifeband is heavier and thicker than it needs to be; the screen is unreadable in bright daylight; some call and text-notification features won't work when paired with an iPhone; the swipe-and-tap band interface is frustrating to use; the battery...

The Lifeband Touch, LG's crack at a smart fitness band, has moments of promise, but just doesn't add up to an experience that's useful or fun compared with the competition.

LG Lifeband Touch review: A mixed-bag fitness band

 

It works with separate heart-rate monitor earphones, and it monitors phone calls, but LG's first attempt at a cutting-edge fitness band just isn't enough.

LG Touch Phone: Nice But Not Naughty

 

Lately Korean Electronics company LG has been getting all suave, sexy and sophisticated with their brand. At a number of launches this year, you would be forgiven for thinking that you may have been at a lingerie party rather than the launch of a new...

T-Mobile MDA Touch Plus review

 

The T-Mobile MDA Touch Plus is a solid and attractive smartphone that belies it PDA design roots, but in a positive fashion, bringing contact management and business productivity tools to a handset with excellent connectivity credentials, a large,...
