LG Rumor2 Review

The Rumor 2 got good reviews from callers, who rated us an 8.5/10.  It was just as good on our end, with the caller sounding loud and clear with natural voice reproduction.  The battery gets a welcome bump from 4.5 hours up to 5.5, with a full week of standby.  This is plenty for even those teenagers with the phone attached to their ears/thumbs.


The Rumor 2 brings some nice upgrades to the original and wraps it up in a more modern package.  Still, it’s basically the same as its predecessor and so is fairly disappointing.  The Rant may have found some inspiration in the Rumor, but it pretty much trumped the device in every way.  The Rumor 2 fails to trump the Rant in anything, so we have to ask: at the same price point, especially with the Rumor’s shoddy quality issues, why would anyone choose the LG over the Samsung?  Seriously, if you know leave a comment, because we can’t think of a single reason.
