Summary: The Cosmos Touch is nearly perfect in every way. I wish I could give it an A+ overall, but the lackluster camera quality and the resized physical keyboard are negatives that may be hard for some to ignore, though the keyboard may be perfect for others. It's still a solid messaging phone and one of the best on Verizon, if not still behind the LG Octane for overall value.
Excerpt: The LG Cosmos Touch is the touchscreen follow up to the LG Cosmos on Verizon Wireless. Priced in at $79.99 on a two year contract, the LG Cosmos Touch is aimed at the entry level market. But in a competitive U.S. market, is the LG Cosmos Touch worth...
Summary: LG has been reaching out to the entry level and mid-tier market with their smartphone releases, rather than aiming high like Samsung or Motorola. The LG Cosmos Touch is no different, aiming at the entry-level market. The LG Cosmos Touch doesn’t take the same path as the LG Optimus S or LG Optimus T. Rather than being preinstalled with Android, the LG Cosmos Touch uses a proprietary OS that has a touchscreen interface.
Conclusion: Call quality was fine on the LG Cosmos Touch but not spectacular. Callers rated us a 7.75/10, complaining that there was a slight tininess and echo. Voice reproduction was so-so on their end. To us they sounded good with solid voice reproduction and the earpiece was plenty loud. Battery life is rated at an ample 6 hours, enough to get your average user through the day and then some.
Pros: Good size, Nice UI for an entry-level handset
Cons: Price, price, price, Keyboard may be a bit cramped for some
