LG Glance VX7100 Review
So you pick up the Glance and think it makes for great phone conversations? We had some mix results with the quality during our testing. You won't have problems listening to people on the handset when set to the lowest volume, but we noticed a prominent echo at the loudest setting. Voices were clear for the most part and callers said we had an almost screeching sound. The speaker phone came out with the same results except that callers said our voice was low; so we had to speak up more. Finally, we had to lower the volume just because every word uttered was accompanied with some background interference.

Retaining a signal was not an issue when using it around the greater Philadelphia area. It did not fluctuate too heavily in the amount of bars being displayed at any given time.

After only two days of using the phone, we were left with two out of four bars. We'd imagine getting more time out of the battery (800 mAh), but we did have Bluetooth on and the brightness of the screen set to the highest. Nonetheless, we were disappointed with the battery life. LG rates the Glance with 4.33 hours of talk and 350 hours on standby.


Solid construction, an interesting patterned design, and somewhat flashy UI makes for a decent start for any phone. While it excels in those elements, some other notable features are omitted from the Glance. Other devices currently available may offer more functionality at probably the same cost. Its not to say the least that its the best candy bar phone out there, there are just others that make for a better solution. Taking one quick glance may get you intrigued enough to initially pick it up, but the glaring lack of features will quickly make you put it down.
