Performance:

Having a large touchscreen display and 3MP camera is nice, but if the phone doesn’t have good call quality and reception, then what good is it?  Thankfully, the LG enV Touch VX11000 does quite well in both categories.  The call quality on the device is equal to the Versa, as it lacks the background hiss that is heard on the Dare and distortion that is produced by the Voyager.  Voices are clear and natural sounding on both ends and does not have the “tunnel” effect that was also prevalent on the Voyager.  One surprise was how loud the Speakerphone was, which almost sounded like it was going to bust the speakers.  Because of this, we had to keep it set to low.  The reception is also about the same as what you would find on the Dare and Versa.  We were able to place and receive calls around South FL without any of them dropping, and would average between 2-3 bars of signal reception.

The included 950mAh battery is rated by LG to provide up to 4.3 hours of talk time or 17 days of standby time on a full charge.  Even though this battery has the same 950mAh capacity as the one used on the Voyager, we were able to get 5 hours of continuous talk time with it, where the Voyager was only 3.5 hours.  The Versa was slightly higher at 5.4 hours and the Dare is still king at 6 hours, but both of those come with a larger 1100mAh battery.


Conclusion:

With all of the features packed into the LG enV Touch VX11000, it will no doubt be one of the most popular Verizon devices this year.  People who loved (or hated) their Voyager will be hard-pressed to find many complaints about this device, except maybe for the poor selection of themes.  Other than that, the enV Touch truly delivers as an update to the Voyager, with two 3” WVGA displays, better appearance, improved user interface and music player, 3MP autofocus camera, document viewer, excellent call quality and reception.  The only real competition comes from other LG devices, such as the Dare, Versa and enV3, but the LG enV Touch VX11000 has them beat, if you are looking for an all-in-one device with touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard
