With so much attention given to smartphones by their manufacturers and wireless providers, you’d think those were the only devices available for purchase. Thankfully this is not the case, as there are still easy-to-use basic phones out there, and some even come with a full QWERTY keyboard for messaging, such as the new LG Cosmos 2 for Verizon Wireless.

Included in the retail package is the LG Cosmos 2 VN251 phone, 900mAh battery, wall charger with detachable microUSB cable, and user guide.


Design:

The LG Cosmos 2 is an updated version of the original LG Cosmos that came out last year, though both are about the same size and weight, and fit comfortably in the hand. However, the Cosmos 2 replaces the slipper battery door for one that is textured, thus allowing a better grip while holding the phone.

You can compare the LG Cosmos 2 with many other phones using our Size Visualization Tool.

Both phones retain the same 2” TFT display with 240x320 resolution and 262K color support. Images and text look nice and crisp, though we do wish the screen size were larger this time around. The main keypad on the Cosmos 2 has been redesigned, as the numeric buttons are now a bit larger and easier to dial numbers with, though this did take away space from the upper softkeys, speakerphone and clear key, as those now feel smaller and cramped together.

One of the main features of the LG Cosmos 2 is the full QWERTY keyboard. It still comes in a 4-row layout, but this time the buttons are larger, which allows for a better tying experience, and they also provide a nice click response when pressed.

We are also glad to see a standard 3.5mm headset jack used, instead of a 2.5 mm one, though you do have to remove the back cover to access the microSDHC memory card slot.
