LG Cosmos 2 Review

0. phoneArena posted on 28 Jul 2011, 07:59

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...

Bought two of these phones for my wife and myself.The sound clarity of calls is excellent. The qwerty keyboard is okay for texting but quite small for someone with large fingers. The option of adding ring tones and music from the computer makes for easy personalization. The biggest problems we have encountered are some confusion regarding how to answer when the phone is locked (apparently no need to unlock it) and the fact that even with the keypad locked, somehow the phone will unlock and it starts asking for commands, shows odd screens, and generally is a real bother. I have the phone case which came with the Blue Tooth accessory and even in the case the phone unlocks and tries to make calls or asks for commands. Also the Blue Tooth is extremely sensitive to extraneous sounds which frequently foils call attempts. This is very frustrating, especially when on the road. Overall a nice phone, but with several glitches which should be ironed out for the next generation or model in the series.

This is a terrible phone. We've brought it back to Verizon, and all they do is reset it and send us on our way, telling us that no one else has reported a problem with it. My wife will receive text messages late, it will "split" text messages into two messages for no apparent reason, and sometimes it won't pick up a call. We cannot wait for her contract to end so that we can get her a better phone. This one is terrible.

Horrible. Got it because it was cheap for Verizon with a contract. You get what you pay for. No one can hear me when I talk on it, inbox gets full so fast and if someone texts me while it's full, their texts never come in and are lost forever? It's extremely slow and lags horribly. I hit a button and it takes up to 3 or 4 seconds for it to register, so I end up thinking that I didn't hit it hard enough and push it again, and it registers twice and messes everything up. I can type a whole sentence before the words appear on my screen while texting. If I receive a text while I'm in the middle of texting, it will send my half typed text. If someone sends me a long text, they are received in multiple pages and out of order. Every time. Recently, it has started to make all of the texts I have recieved from other people blank in my inbox. Sorry excuse for a phone, literally a piece of junk.
