If you're looking for a good solid phone to stuff into someone's stocking, you might want to check out the 3rd edition of the fancy LG Chocolate flip phone, which can be yours for $99 and a contract.

What You Need To Know

  • The first two chocolates had touch sensitive controls on the front that were hit or miss, but this one has a click wheel that's much easier to use and very iPod-esque 
  • It also has two displays (rather than one) that are both gorgeous.
  • Looks just like every other phone.
  •  The music player works similar to an iPod and is really easy to use. It'll do things like automatically skip you to different letters of your music index
  •  The FM transmitter's signal isn't all that strong, but it's quick and simple
  • The speaker is really loud, (play a song) but lows or mids don't come through too clear. We also wish there were more equalizer presets
  • 1 gig of internal storage, plus up to 8 gigs of micro-SD
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • Speakerphone is loud but sounds kind of hollow
  • 2 megapixel camera has better photo quality than we expected
  • You can download tracks over v-cast using rhapsody, and it supports wma, mp3, and aac plus

Price

  • $100 with a contract
