LG Voyager Preview
This is our LG Voyager Preview. For In-Depth Review, please click here
One of the most highly anticipated handsets offered by Verizon Wireless this holiday season is the new LG Voyager VX10000. The Voyager is considered a major upgrade from the enV that was introduced one year ago. Most noticeable, the external touch-screen is a first ever by Verizon, even though LG has used it on their Prada and Viewty GSM phones.
We received our Voyager unit today and have put it through some testing over the past few hours. Listed below are our preliminary findings, so please check back for our Full Review that will be posted in the upcoming days.
The Voyager is a clamshell style phone, just like the enV, constructed mostly out of black plastic with chrome accents. It feels durable and solid, measuring 4.46”H x 2.12”W x 0.71”D and has a weight of 4.69 oz.
The front is dominated by the unprecedented 2.81” 400x240 pixel touch-sensitive display that is used for all phone functions and menu navigation. The screen is bright with images being shown at 262K color depth. It works in similar fashion to the iPhone, but does not allow for multiple fingers and “pinching” of images and web pages.
The bottom half is where the full QWERTY keypad is located. It has been redesigned with larger buttons, which make for fast and easy text messaging. On the right is the 5 way navigational D-pad, which is also slightly larger and has better designed “OK” button in the center. You can use the D-Pad for menu navigation with the internal display.
