LG Clout Review

Performance:

The call quality on the LG Clout VX8370 is quite good, even a bit better than the VX8360. Voices are clear and natural sounding, and lack any background noise or distortion. We also noticed that the earpiece speaker volume on the Clout is able to go louder than on the VX8360, which is good while in noisy environments. The speakerphone is also able to go a bit louder, and we are glad that it can now be used while the flip the closed. Signal reception on both the Clout and VX8360 are pretty close, with 2-3 bars showing in high coverage, and without dropping any calls.

The included 1000mAh battery that comes with the Clout is rated to provide up to 6.5 hours of talk time or 27 days of standby time on a full charge. During our testing we were able to get up to the 6.5 hours of continuous talk time on a full charge, which is about 30 minutes longer than on the VX8360, and almost double of that of the VX8350 and VX8300.

Conclusion:

Once again, LG has shown that it can produce a good quality flip phone with the Clout VX8370. We like its overall design with dual color displays, large keyboard, stereo speakers and 2MP camera. We would highly recommend the LG Clout for anyone that is looking for a nice flip phone with some extra features, and also wants good call quality and long talk times.
