Summary: LG's New Chocolate (BL40) boasts excellent build quality and a flashy, if unconventional, design. The interface does have its issues and the oddly-shaped design does take a while to grasp, but it has plenty of features.
Pros: Excellent design and build quality, 4in widescreen display, S-Class 3D interface is visually appealing, on-screen keyboard is intuitive
Cons: UI isn't intuitive in some areas, odd design poses some navigation difficulties, unconventional display not ideal for all content
Conclusion: So far what we have seen in the major features of LG-chocolate black label that the device is expected to feature. Now, let’s find out how easy and safe it would to handle. From the preview, the look of LG-chocolate black label is appearing extremely attractive. The casing seems to be shiny black and the entire front portion is supposed to be the touch screen display. QWERTY keyboard facility can also be enjoyed on the screen of LG-bl40.
Excerpt: Tall and thin, the LG Chocolate BL40 resembles an older-style chocolate bar - perhaps the Wonka Bars from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Though there is no golden ticket here, unwrapping the Chocolate BL40 is a largely pleasant experience, though it is an unconventional phone.
Summary: I remember reviewing the original chocolate phone in 2008 and this is longer and thinner. In fact it really is nothing like the original. Of course phones continue to evolve so what has the new Chocolate BL40 got to offer.
Excerpt: The LG Chocolate BL40 is a beautiful handset. It's an irrefutable fact. Its shape is unique, its colours striking and it's one of the few phones these days that gets more ooohs and aaahs than a certain other touchscreen device that's somewhat taken over the planet. In fact, there's every reason to buy one - until you turn it on.
Pros: Fantastic form factor, beautiful touchscreen, completely orginal handset
Cons: The operating system completely drags the whole thing down

The LG Black Label Chocolate BL40 comes with a large 4 inch display, meaning you don’t need to hold it an inch away from your face to keep up to date with the latest YouTube uploads.
