Terrible

Worst thing I've ever owned. I have had 7 already and Verizon refuses to let me switch to anything better. I have gotten 2 in a single 24 hour period. With the Verizon representative saying "You must've gotten a lemon" just like the previous 6....The touchscreen is possibly the worst thing about the phone. I like textile feedback which i realized after its impossible to look away from the phone without looking back to seeing something you never thought was possible to type. Trying to edit your text by placing the cursor is impossible. Battery life is bad as well. I have charged it 4 times without using it. Which brings me to my next point of through the 6 before the one im stuck with...all have had random battery life. One would drain it in a matter of minutes of being off the charger some would last a day. I just have no care for this useless and frustrating "phone"

Wasted!

So i got this account just to tell you how much i hate this phone! Of course its beautiful and the keyboard is amazing. But its too big and it barely fits in my pocket!! Secondly it always calls people even after i continoosuly lock it. Third : THE BATTERY LIFE SUCKS!!! Listen here i text moderately and this phone is just the worst battery life ever.  It dies litterally in 2 hours and i dont even look/ recieve pictures or videos.... Its just horrible so now i have to spend another 50 dollars on a new battery thanks. FOurth: MY TIUCHSCREEN DOESNT EVVEN WORK!!!!! I dont even use my touchscreen anymore and no matter how hard i try IT DOESNT WORK! it agrivates me so much! Oh and whenever i turn my phone off the backround resets itself!

I love this phone

 I love this phone this phone so much, it is easy to navigate, I love the flip to text thing too, very innovative. I don't think I want to switch phones when the contract is over. A lot of people siad that this phone has problems, but I haven't encountered any so far. The Keyboard is large so it is good for people who have big hands like me. The only thing I have problems with is the customizing, I wish the LG Env touch had more customizing features, other than that great phone, you did good LG and Verizon :]

 At first it was a good phone, but then after a few months it just went crazy. I won't get replies to messages for an hour, and then when I do, it takes another hour to get the next one. I waste all my minutes in calls because thats the only way my phone gets the messages. So I decided to take it to Verizon, and they said that was weird, so they replaced it, and then I got a new one. It was okay for three days, then started doing the same thing as my original. Maybe this is just where I live, but I have friends with this phone who have the same problem. One friend has messages that you canceled sent every time you exit out of something. Other than those problems, it is an okay phone. It needs more themes, needs longer battery life, and the camera flash tends to white out your pictures. It has an average keyboard, and the call quality is average. The touch screen works well, but the screen protectors don't work very well.

So, I've had my EnV Touch for about 10 months and here is what i've experienced with it thus far: The phone is by far the best one Ive had to date with my last phone being a Helio Ocean (Ocean was a Pioneer phone in its day). I love the screen to keypad transition giving me the option to type on the go (not while driving of course...lol), or sending a well thought out txt. The Touch is very user friendly with various options to choose from setting up your message alerts to adding a ringtone mp3 via bluetooth (which is another awesome feature). Since most of the reviews on here pretty much described the pros and cons of this phone I will only mention how sturdy this phone is. I was moving furniture up 3 flights of open air stairs (outside) when i finally reached the top of the third stairway my phone fell out of my pocket and fell down at least two of the 3 flights of stairs. Luckily for me it fell on its back with the internal screen open, which i thought the front screen would have been cracked but to my surprise it wasn't and not only that, once i rebooted the phone it worked seamlessly!! I was completely shocked and impressed, this phone has been through the gamut yet it still runs properly like the first day i purchased it. To sum things up, great VERSATILE phone for the price. It's not a smart phone but a smart txt phone ( I dubbed it first...lol).

Great Phone in every way BUT not a smartphone.

Great phone in EVERY way....you can't go wrong. The screen is great. The battery lasts plenty long and the speakerphone is great as well.

The camera takes great pics and check out  the panorama feature...totally cool..and useful. The videos are pretty good too...it is not a camcorder.

Great keypad for heavy texters and for you parents that are never able  to tell your kids "no" to anything.


Haters get a life ...this is not a smartphone.

This phone sucks

Absolutely awful phone. The touch screen is absolutely worthless (yes, I've calibrated it...many times). Only 2 out of 10 times will it actually open what I touch. If I touch a recent call or contact to call them, the things just starts scrolling.

I like the QWERTY keyboard and the screen resolution is great....when it works. The camera is good, but you can't use the flash because it's SO strong, it completely washes out everything.

Horrible phone. Just horrible.

OUTSTADING

 Just by using this phone for 2 hours it was a phone worth to buy my other phone sucked. The 3G on the phone is outstanding. I would say this a great first phone for any Verizon customer by any means necessary do not get the Motorola Droid, I recommend the Droid Eris, the iPhone will soon be out on the CDMA network soon after the 2010 keynote. But I still say the accelerometer on LG enV Touch is amazingly quick and the touch screen is very responsive. I give it a 50 thumbs up for this phone.

i love it

i just got this phone and i think its awesome. before this i had a very cheap and basic flip phone from lg, and i decided to upgrade to this. i love everything on it the touchscreen is nice and responsive the flip keyboard is really nice and spaced out, although the qwerty keys on the touchscreen when sending a txt can be hard to use because they are a little to close. also the internet is somewhat quick, and very nice to have, but can be a little confusing zooming in and out and scrolling around the page. also i noticed sometimes while on the internet it will freeze up for a few seconds but its not a big deal. so overall i really like this phone its a nice phone to use if you never had a touch phone before.

Considering it is not a smart phone, it is AMAZING!

 I have been using this phone since July. So far, I haven't had any problems with this device. I would like to put this out in the open: this is not a smart phone. People are expecting to much from the device. I would like to clarify that it does not shut off or restart randomly. I have not found it to have bad battery life. It usually lasts me 2-3 days or if I am playing many games and sending many text messages, it will last me at least 1 day. I enjoy using the Visual Voice Mail program, which makes listening to the messages I want to hear easier. You do not have to go through all the messages to hear one in the middle. I like the game Need for Speed also. Threaded messaging is great. Photos and videos come out clear. The shortcut menu is awsome. It also has a huge inside screen and spread out keyboard. This device is extremely customizable! I am pretty careful about dropping the phone, so it is holding up very well. All-in-all, considering it is not a smart phone, it is great. I love it.

Design 10/10

  • best non-smartphone web browser
  • ease of use
  • responsive touchscreen

Cons

  • this is very minor, but the contacts could have a slot for birthdays and first and last name and other details.

Major flaws take away from many of the good features....

I have had the LG enV Touch for about four months. At first I was very pleased with everything about it, but slowly I began to dislike it. At first, the only problem I had with it was the short battery life, but I could deal with that as long as I had my car charger or made not to use it excessively. Slowly however, it began to go downhill. Because I live in a relatively sunny area and it was bright when I first got it, I never really used the flash. But I began to take more pictures I noticed the problems with the flash. At night, there is not enough light to take a photo without the flash so you must use the flash. But when I use the flash on my phone, it is too bright sometimes and not bright enough at other points. This makes the photo either too bright or too dark. As far as texting goes, I love the QWERTY keyboard. it is awesome. But the touch screen one is unresponsive and often laggy, which causes me to mess up my texts. Often times wen I send texts, the message will come over with random letters, numbers, and symbols. Then if the message is fine, it often arrives much later than I sent it. Also, like many people have stated, there is no way to add words to the dictionary. Before I got the enV Touch, I also used my iPod Touch, like I do now. Even though ti was not a phone, the apps were amazing and allowed it to pretty much be a phone with WiFi. The apps were fun beccause many companies focused and began to produce affordable,...  

Design 8/10
Features 6/10
Performance 4/10

Pros

  • -Good texting keyboard (Not touch one)
  • -Good sound quality when not on speaker phone
  • -Camera is good when not using flash
  • -Not enough apps, those that are there are pricy
  • -Clear display
  • -Easy to navigate when using the inside, not touch

Cons

  • -Touch screen is definently not responsive compared to other phones, especially iPhone or iPod Touch
  • -Touch not heat activated touch screen
  • -Too big
  • -Turns on and off frequently
  • -Flash is less than satisfactory
  • -BATTERY LIFE (Lasts anywhere from 2 hours - 12 hours, typically closer to 4-6)

Not all that..

When i first got this phone a little over 5 months ago, i thought it was the best. But now that i have had it for a while, i see that it is not that good.First of all, touchscreens are not very good after you have them for a while. I highly recommend NOT getting a touchscreen. They start to get laggy after a while and they always call people when they are in your pocket. You would think the lock would prevent this, but it does not (at least not on this phone). And then sometimes i have to spend about 10 seconds continually pressing the same 'button' on the screen before it responds.Also, the flash on the camera is way too bright for taking pics of anything that is 4-5 feet away or closer. It glares off the object and the picture looks horrible, if visible. The main problem is that sometimes, the phone will turn off for no reason and when i turn it back on, ALL of my many shortcuts are reset!!! this is very frustrating and sometimes happens frequently.Although there are many bad things about this phone, it is still ok, although i don't recommend it**IF YOU WANT A GOOD PHONE, GET THE ENV3!!!! THAT HAS ALL THE GOOD PARTS ABOUT THIS PHONE W/OUT ALL THE FLAWS**

This phone is a pretty good phone. I got it for free after my 6th voyager broke.  The env touch is definitly better then the voyager. The env touch has a good touch screen and respons very well when I use it/ The qwerty keyboard is just amazing, the keys are soft and have perfect spacing. My voyager keyboard was loud when you pressed a key and hard. The design of the phone is very cute, it may be a little big but compared to the voyager its kinda small. Teh sound quailty on the phone is extremely clear, i love it. The fun has enteraining things to do like drawing, games, and music. The threaded text messaging is great too :) The camera on this phone is awesome! It has flash :) There is also a feature that detects smiles and one that you take a picture of a business card and then saves the info in contacts. The camera has editing on it so you can edit and videos and pictures without having to go on the computer! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that it has a 3.5 headjack! I love listening to music and when I don't have my ipod or when I don't feel like bringing my ipod I can listen to it on my phone it's just often. I don't like how there isn't any good ringtones on the phone but however i like how you can record your own sounds and use them as ringtones. I also dislike how there are only to themes which aren't very pretty.  Favorites on the phone is helpful but I don't use it that much. I like how you can drag gthings onto you homescreen :) the memo widget is sooooo helpful....

its good;but the flaws.... :(

i hav had this fone for about a month now and at first it was great...i loved the features, the camera, and the keyboard...the internet and mobile IM was the best from all the fone i had so far, too...but about a week ago, i was invited to my friends party and i left my fone in one of my ugg boots...i had turned it off because it had one bar left and i wanted to save it but it turned on by itself and i didnt know...since it is touch screen, it started by itself and reset everything and erased all my pictures and contacts...when i went to the verizon store, they told me this had never happened before...i was dissapointed and traded my fone in for a new env touch...this one now resets everything every time i turn it one, and everytime i press the down button, it blacks out and shuts down...this fone sort of sux and i sort of regret getting it...i should hav gotten the rival or the rogue...

Poor Quality

I have had this phone for a little over a month now and have had to replace it because it would not read my micro SD card.  The card was good and worked in my son's phone.   The touch screen doesn't work consistently all the time and I have to keep opening the phone up to use.  The battery doesn't last long even when not in use.   I wouldn't buy the phone again but unfortunately have about 22 months left in my contract.
