LG eXpo GW820 Review
Getting in touch with someone through a phone call on the LG eXpo came out with positive results. Callers said that our voice sounded clear without any static or background noise; it had a normal tone. On our end we were able to make out the conversation without any problems. When switching to the speaker phone, we still received decent calling quality, but it sounded just a tad low for us to clearly comprehend the conversation without our callers having to speak up heavily.

Pitting it with other AT&T phones, the LG eXpo was able to retain a solid connection to the network and didn’t drop calls during our testing in the greater Philadelphia area.

One of the biggest hurdles to overcome with any smartphone is its longevity with battery life. With the handset set to automatically adjust brightness levels, we were able to get almost a full working days use out of the LG eXpo before the indicators started telling us that battery was low. You’ll need to constantly charge this phone whenever you can if you plan on using it for the long haul of a full working day. LG has the phone rated for 4 hours of talk and 408 hours of standby time.


LG did a wonderful job in disassociating itself from the sour after taste that left us with the LG INCITE. They’ve clearly reworked their designs and managed to produce a worthy Windows Mobile smartphone that will aim to please a wide range of users with its impressive lists of features. Not only does the S-Class interface make its US debut on the eXpo, but it adds a lot of visual flare that we haven’t seen stateside to make it a refreshing option for users consistently seeing either TouchFLO 3D or TouchWiz dominating the scene. Finally, the implementation of the pico projector opens up a plethora of implications that can cater to a whole new list of needs. The X in eXpo marks the spot where LG clearly differentiates itself in being a prominent figure in the Windows Mobile landscape.
