LG Cosmos 2 Review
signal reception on the LG Cosmos 2 and on the original Cosmos is identical, showing 2-3 bars in high-coverage areas, though we did see both phones drop down to 1 bar on occasion. Call quality was also similar, but we did notice that while using the Cosmos 2, voices on our end did sound a bit fuller and were more natural sounding through the earpiece speaker, though using the speakerphone will be distorted at higher volumes.
We’re not sure why the battery capacity was reduced from 950mAh on the LG Cosmos to 900mAh on the Cosmos 2, but what’s interesting is that during our testing, both phones were capable of the same 5.5 hours of continuous talk time on a full charge or about 7 day of standby time.
If you have the original LG Cosmos, there’s really no major changes to the Cosmos 2 that warrant you to upgrade at this point (expect maybe for having a music player). But for new Verizon customers, or current ones with an older phone, the Cosmos 2 has an excellent price of Free with a 2-year contract, and has some nice features to offer, most notably the full QWERTY keyboard and good call quality. Just remember that it’s not a smartphone, and that the web & data on it are very limited.
Software version of the reviewed unit:
