  • Excerpt: Released in May, 2010, the LG Ally was the first LG Android handset to hit the U.S. Featuring some lower end specs for entry level customers and a physical QWERTY keyboard, the LG Ally is a solid phone. But does it have what it takes to really break into...

LG Ally (Verizon Wireless) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
18 May 2010
  • Summary: For $99.99, the Ally is a good Motorola Droid alternative for those more concerned with typing comfort than screen size. Not only is the Ally's keyboard much better, but the phone is far more ergonomic. As long as you remember to bring your charger, the Ally is a good choice for heavy texters who want an Android smart phone at a reasonable price.

LG Ally VS740 Review

Phone Arena
17 May 2010
  • Conclusion: When all is said and done, the LG Ally VS740 is a nice smartphone for those individuals who have been cautious about taking the Android plunge. It is simple enough to use and lacks some of the bells-and-whistles (such as MOTOBLUR and Sense UI) that may cause the average user to stay away.
  • Pros: Android 2.1 OS with two themes, Well designed QWERTY keyboard, Call quality is high
  • Cons: Buttons only stay illuminated for 5 seconds, Homescreen lag, Still lacks Bluetooth voice commands

13 May 2010
  • Conclusion: It's hard to find fault with LG's first Android phone in the US. It's fast, it's stable and the feature set is great for the price. We have a feeling it will trounce the Devour given the Ally's higher resolution display, more compact and attractive design and better camera. If you want an Android phone with a hardware keyboard but are on a budget, the LG is an appealing alternative to the Moto Devour.
  • Pros: Latest Android OS, pleasant LG customizations and high res touchsceen.
  • Cons: LG Socialite app is balky and unstable.
