Interface and Functionality:

Internally, it might not resonate something spectacular with its 600MHz processor, but we’re still nevertheless content with the Phoenix’s level of performance. Specifically, we’re still experiencing some responsive movements when navigating across its homescreen and app panel – with no bouts of adverse lag evident during our testing. In addition, it doesn’t seem to stutter much in performance after activating any of its preloaded live wallpapers. Besides the carousel of icons lining the bottom portion of the homescreen, we’re presented with a mostly stock Android 2.2 Froyo experience.


Just like other Android 2.2 smartphones, you can sync your address book with various social networking accounts – giving you pertinent information and status updates all in the same place. Obviously you can add as many contacts that the phone's memory can hold, and along with that, various pieces of information can be associated with each person.


Although its keyboard is thoroughly responsive, typing up long messages can be a chore when trying to use the portrait on-screen keyboard due to its cramped layout and tiny buttons. However, flipping it to landscape obviously solves the problem as we’re presented with more room. In addition to the stock keyboard, we find the LG one as an alternative – albeit, we’re not fans of its offset “enter” button.


There’s actually nothing out of the ordinary with the Gmail app on the LG Phoenix, especially when it offers all the versatile features we’re commonly greeted with on all other Android smartphones out there.


Flaunting its AT&T branding prominently below its earpiece, there are boatloads of AT&T branded apps preinstalled with the device. These include things like AT&T FamilyMap, AT&T Code Scanner, AT&T Hot Spots, AT&T myWireless, AT&T Navigator, AT&T Radio, and Live TV. Thankfully, the only other third party apps preloaded with the handset are ThinkFree Office and YPmobile, but as usual, we find the customary set of Google apps to tastefully complement the experience.

Este es un excelente telefono de ultima generación. Solo quiero comentar que actualmente requiero actualizarle el software porque a veces se queda frizado o congelado y debo apagarlo, entonces quiero re instalarle el software para obtener nuevamente su amplia funcionabilidad. Saludos y felicitaciones Jorge Pineda Bosch Caracas - Venezuela
