LG Cosmos VN250 Review
The signal reception of the LG Cosmos VN250 was good and averaged between 2-3 bars in high-coverage areas, which is on par with most other phones, including the Samsung Intensity U450, Motorola Rival A455, and LG enV3 VX9200. However, the call quality of the Cosmos was noticeably better than the Intensity and Rival and more equal to that of the enV3, as voices on both ends were clear and lacked any distortion or background noise. Unfortunately, the speakerphone on the Cosmos is lacking and not as good as the one on the enV3, as there is some distortion that can be heard if the volume is turned up to high.

The included 950 mAh battery is rated to provide up to 6 hours of talk time or 24 days of standby time on a full charge. During our testing we were able to get up to 5.5 hours of talk time on a full charge, which is an hour better than what we got on both the Samsung Intensity and Motorola Rival.


The LG Cosmos VN250 is by no means “out of this world” but it is a nice messaging phone for people who are looking for a budget device. The QVGA display paired along with the sliding QWERTY keyboard makes for composing and reading messages a breeze, and the call quality and signal reception are good too. The only thing that is missing is the music player, but if that is not important to you, we would recommend the LG Cosmos VN250 over the Samsung Intensity U450 and Motorola Rival A455, though the LG enV3 VX9200 is still the overall winner here.


  • Good call quality and signal reception
  • The QWERTY keyboard is comfortable to use
  • Social Networking SMS updates
  • Feels well made overall


  • No music player
  • Camera lacks a flash
  • Small amount of internal memory
