LG Neon GT365 Review

Performance:

We had a hard time using the LG Neon GT365 for making phone calls. It was difficult to listen to our callers because they were muffled sounding and hollow. Setting the volume on its highest setting did not solve the problem either; making even more difficult to understand. On their end, our voices sounded normal without too much background noise. Fortunately they were able to comprehend everything we said during our conversations. We got the same experience using the speaker phone with callers.

Using the phone in the greater New York area, the Neon managed to keep a steady signal without any noticeable loss in connection. We compared it with a Sony Ericsson W580 and saw no difference in the amount of bars being displayed.

The Neon is rated for 6 hours of talk-time and 250 hours of standby. We managed to get out 6 days use on a single charge; with normal use during that period. Brightness was set at the highest while we tested it out and impressed with the overall results.

Conclusion:

So here's the kicker with the LG Neon GT365 – it had the potential in being a well rounded messaging phone. It does not have all the features found on the Xenon to make it a phone with good overall depth. And it stands equally with the Magnet and Slate when it comes to the messaging options, but has a better looking design and refreshing interface. One sobering issue that became annoying and lowered its status was the typing qualm we experienced using the QWERTY. For a device geared towards the messaging crowd, typing on the phone may become extremely tiring and frustrating - defeating its purpose.

I had this phone, and I liked it, but the buttons will make your fingers hurt and the phone is very slow and laggy. >_
