LG Dare review – Smaller than other high end smartphones
12 December 2010
Excerpt: The surface of LG Dare, just like all the touch screen phones, is dominated by the display. There are a couple of buttons on the surface for End/Power, Voice/Clear and Call. The handset is a bit smaller than the Samsung Instinct and iPhone. It is 4.1 inches long, 0.5 inch thick and 2.2 inches wide. The phone feels great in the hand due to the black soft touch surface on the rear and a stainless steel border on the sides.
Live TV on the LG Dare & LG Voyager (Video Review)
7 March 2009
Excerpt: A number of readers have sent us e-mails requests to do a quick review of how Live TV shows up on the LG Dare. We gladly accepted as the LG Dare is a joy to play with and incredibly easy to use.
Conclusion: Yes, it's no iPhone, but the Dare is a very good phone with strong reception, pleasing voice quality and a great collection of multimedia features. We love the 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera, and Rhapsody's large selection of DRM-free music competes strongly with iTunes (if you use the more frugal desktop download option). The Dare makes a good MP3 player replacement thanks to good audio quality and its background playback capability.
Summary: The Dare is certainly one of the more feature-packed of the resistive touchscreen phones that have begun to flood the market. Its 3.2-MP camera and slow-motion video recording help it stand out, and we like the interface, multimedia playback, and 3.5mm headphone jack.
Pros: Strong call quality, Good 3.2-MP camera with slow-motion video recording, Customizable interface, Built-in accelerometer, Integrated GPS,
Cons: Poor touchscreen for Web browsing, Less than desirable e-mail experience,
