LG Lotus Elite Review
Call quality was quite good on both ends with the LG Lotus Elite.  Callers said we were very clear and did not have any complaints about sound quality.  On our end they were plenty loud, voice reproduction was natural and everything sounded great.  It is definitely one of the better phones we have tested recently.  CDMA talk time is getting better and better, so while the Lotus Elite’s rated talk time is average at 5.9 hours it is still plenty.

The LG Lotus Elite is a fine refresh to the original Lotus.  The main change is obviously the outer touchscreen which manages to be useful.  Performance of the user interface was pleasantly above average and phone performance was excellent.  The biggest drawback to the Lotus Elite is its current $100 dollar price tag, placing it in direct completion with more capable phones like the Palm Pixi and double similar devices like the Samsung Reclaim.  The Lotus debuted at $100 as well before dropping to $50, if a similar price cut is in the works for the Elite we would find it to be a compelling offering.

I don't really care much for this phone, but it really bothers me that they would name it after the Lotus Elite (an old Lotus car, predecessor to the Elan). It's not worthy of gracing the Lotus name... Elite or not.

I dont really like this phone either especially when its covered with flowers. Thats a pretty dumb move for sprint bcuz idk any guy who would want a phone like this. Why not make it for any gender like almost every verizon phone?

Is it me or Phonearena always rates Sprint phones above 8, and any other carrier 8 or below? Same way cnet.com always rates ATT's phones way above average and any other carrier phone average or below? Must have something to do with advertising. I mean most of the advertisement on here are sprint ones... Just saying
