The new LG Versa is the successor to the successful 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?

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
  • But how well does it integrate as a whole with the phone?
  • It closes shut sort of like 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 all the time
  • The web browser is fast because of Verizon's EVDO revision a connection, but the screen real estate  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
