LG Versa Review »


The new LG Versa is the successor to the very popular LG Voyager... and this time it's even thinner; has a detachable QWERTY keyboard; a 2 Megapixel camera; web browsing; stereo Bluetooth; and a realistic price tag. But is it the phone for you?

Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.

What You Need to Know

  • This phone has touch screen functionality like rotating home screens and customization
  • The menus, icons, and everything else have a nicer feel than most other LG phones
  • Scrolling doesn't work the way we want it to. Sometimes it stalls or keeps going when it shouldn't
  • The on-screen keyboard also isn't as good as we remember; you're constantly correcting what you're typing and missing letters
  • It has a detachable keypad; you just snap the back off and click the keyboard on
  • It shuts similar to the Voyager, and it has an OLED screen and buttons on the front so you can make calls
  • The accelerometer also works well when you turn it sideways to type
  • The problem is, you're probably not going to be trading off a lot since you'd have to carry around the back cover or the keypad
  • The web browser is fast because of Verizon's EVDO revision a connection, but the screen real estate is a little tight to navigate
  • The camera has a flash, but colors are kind of dull
  • Things like video and music work okay, but Verizon charges extra for most of it
  • We'd also really like to see a dedicated app store
  • Since there is only one add-on for this phone right now, we'd rather get the Voyager for $150, because it has a better keyboard
  • The Blackberry Curve 8330 is also a better deal for $100, because it has better features


Price

  • $200 with a contract
  • It’s not worth the price
