LG Fathom VS750 Review
Performance:

We were surprised that the call quality on the LG Fathom VS750 was not up to par with other LG phones, including the Ally VS740. People that we called sounded “mechanical” on our end and there was a noticeable vibration distortion in the earpiece speaker when the volume level was raised above medium, while on their end people said we sounded a bit distant and hollow, as if we were talking in a tunnel. Reception didn’t fare much better, as we only had 1-2 bars showing in high-coverage areas, though we didn’t drop any calls.

The included 1500 mAh battery was able to provide us up to 6 hours of continuous talk time on a full charge, or about a day’s worth of time with mixed usage. The manufacturer rates it at 7 hours of talk time or 20 days of standby.


Conclusion:

You’ve heard of the saying “timing is everything”, and in the case of the LG Fathom VS750, timing is against it. Windows Mobile smartphones are no longer the only game in town, as we now have Android and webOS. Furthermore, Windows Phone 7 devices are on the horizon, so die-hard WinMo fans are waiting to see what that will bring. At this point, we can only see someone buying the LG Fathom VS750 if they absolutely must have a Windows Mobile device right now that has a QWERTY keyboard and also includes global roaming capabilities.

With that said, the LG Fathom VS750 is a pretty well-rounded smartphone by itself. Our only real concerns with the device are its resistive screen and poor call quality.

I bet they used a resistive touchscreen so it could be used with a stylus for business men and women. That's who this phone is intended for.

do not buy LG VS750 FATHOM.it is a lousy phone.gets hung up again and again on recharging its battery as it gets HOT.
it gets hung up ebvery now and then when you receive a call.whats more onve hung up it doesnt record the call number so you can not get the no in phone book/memory.
#at times during a call a jarring note or a sound like a spark with in mobiel develops forcing you to remove the battery to DISCONTNUE.
Its windows function nebevrt worked cause its driver never fgot loaded despite experts trying it with CD.
wHAT MORE ITS NOT EVEN LISTED ON LG CUSTOMER CARE LIST SO YOU CAN NOT COMPLAIN.
I BOUGHT IT FOR RS 5800 TYHROUGH A INDORE FDEALER-AAKANKSHA DISTRIBUTORS.BUT THEY DISCLAIM ALL RESPONSIBILITY SAYING THEY ARE ONLY NOT MNUFACTURES.
WHERE TO GO??????/
