No pros


  • It is so thick it needs a personal fitness trainer (0.65 inches inches)
  • Low-resolution video capture
  • Lacks an ambient light sensor for automatic screen brightness adjustment




The LG enV3 keeps the design language of the enV2, but is a bit slimmer. It also adds a stylish round D-pad and a better external display. Once opened, the enV3 has a larger 2.6-inch main display in the same QVGA resolution. The QWERTY keyboard now has only one Space button. Other features include a 3MP camera with flash and a EV-DO connectivity.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
