Average Touchscreen Phone
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This phone is great for someone who wants to switch from using a keypad phone to a touch screen phone. It is easy to adapt and use. However, the one main thing I thought was hard was to text since the buttons on the screen are so close to one another that it is easy to press a button that you didn't intend to. The sound quality is strong, and the speaker is too. A few differences that this phone has from a flip phone is that it has a lock feature.
Excerpt: I love my Sentio touch-screen phone! What I especially love about it is that it is super thin and sleek. It looks really good and is not bulky. It can easily fit in my jean pockets without awkwardly popping out. Also, it is very durable. I have dropped it numerous times and it is still functioning! However, I would say that the only con is that sometimes, the touch screen is annoying.
Excerpt: I've had the LG Sentio for about a month now and I'm very pleased with the phone. At first I wasn't sure I would like an all touch screen phone but all of that changed once I started using it. It very thin and compact but doesn't feel cheaply made. The touch scfreen keyboard did take a few days to get used to but after I got going I had no problems. Sure, there's an occasional typo but you'll have that with any phone.
Excerpt: I am using this phone with no data plan. There is no wifi feature so the phone doesn't do much. I like how you can move the icons on the home screen anywhere and how there is weather and a clock on it too. I mainly use the phone for music. It is probably the best feature for me. It is easy to put music on the phone and it has a nice external speaker. It comes with earphones and the app for music is on the home screen making it easy to access.
Excerpt: Long story short, my Blackberry broke (my own fault, nothing wrong with Blackberry) and with some reluctance, I chose the LG Sentio. I figured it's free so if I really hate it that much I can get another phone. Surprisingly, this phone is growing on me and I've only had it for a day. It's not a smartphone exactly, but you can get a data plan for it. So the versatility is nice. It's also touchscreen, which I'm still a little iffy on...
LG Sentio - Easy to use but not for frequent texting
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I used this phone for almost three months before I switched to a different phone. The phone is easy to use but I am a frequent texter and I was having a really hard time typing letters on the screen. I guess I should've gotten something with a keyboard but I read the specs for this phone and it has a virtual keyboard function if the phone is turned sideways. I thought that would be fine for texting. The resistive screen would register the wrong letter.
Summary: I order this phone and it is how was advertised, I am happy with it, it came with USB cable, headphones, pen and work very well with my sim card from T-Mobil. The only problem is the internet access, I have to update my internet plan. They delivered on time.
Summary: This is a great touch-screen phone for the price. This isn't a smart phone, and takes a little bit of programming in order to use the internet and MMS - but you can just do an online search for your provider's network and multimedia message settings (or give them a call). It works great with AT&T and T-mobile (from what i've tested). The only reason I give it a 4 out of 5 is because sometimes I hear an echo when I'm speaking - but this really isn't an issue.
