The LG enV Touch VX11000 is probably not in the same league as iPhone or Palm Pre. But that doesn’t shadow this feature-rich cell phone from being desirable.
With its full touch-screen interface, The LG enV Touch looks like a successor to the much acclaimed LG Voyager VX10000, but comes with a better design and features. It has two 3-inch displays and both of them support an incredible 1.6 million colors which is very helpful in viewing images and videos. The outer display uses a touch-screen interface. The spacious QWERTY keyboard comes with a better layout and makes typing a pleasant experience.
The 3.2 mexa pixel camera is more advanced than that found on Voyager. And with EV-Do Rev.A and a full HTML Web Browser, you can surf the net faster. But unlike Voyager, the enV Touch doesn’t have a V Cast Mobile TV feature.
Looks and Design:
In looks and design, this phone has similarities with LG Versa and LG Dare. The construction is sturdy. The touch-screen interface is quite responsive. Drag your fingers across the screen and you will be able to scroll through menus and web pages. There is, nevertheless, some problem. Using the web browser on the touch screen interface may prove to be slightly difficult and demands some time to get used to. You need to tap just right in order for a link to register. This is particularly true on a crowded page. And sometimes you might inadvertently launch an application when navigating the menu. Another disappointing aspect is the lack of Wi-Fi.
The phonebook can store up to 1,500 entries. Each entry can consist of up to five numbers, two email addresses and a street address. Other features include a vibrate mode, a speakerphone, a calendar, an alarm clock, a notepad, text and multimedia messaging, voice messaging, and even a drawing pad. The built-in Bluetooth supports dial-up networking, phonebook access, basic printing, basic imaging and file transfer among others.
If you have a Mobile Broadband Connect Plan, you can use the enV Touch as a wireless modem for your laptop or computer. There is a document viewer with which you can read Microsoft Office documents from Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. You will be able to access and read Adobe Acrobat .pdf files.
As for e-mail, there are three options. The mobile e-mail feature makes it possible for you to get e-mail from a variety of services (like Yahoo, AOL, and Windows Live) directly into your in-box. The other two options are mobile corporate e-mail and mobile Web e-mail.
Overall, this is a great phone. In a market swamped with touch screen enabled cell phones, the enV Touch is an outstanding model among the entire range. It has a wide array of powerful features packed in a sleek design, making it one of the better phones currently available.
