LG DoublePlay review

30 January 2012
  • Summary: The first time I laid eyes on the LG DoublePlay, I thought I was in love. I'm a former T-Mobile Sidekick / Danger Hiptop fan, you see, and both physical keyboards and rapid multitasking are near and dear to my heart. So when LG spit out a Android smartphone with not only a split keyboard, but also a 2-inch secondary display to swap between apps on the fly, I figured it was the phone for me despite its fairly low $99.99 pricetag on contract.
  • Pros: Decent single-core performance, Decent battery life, Decent camera
  • Cons: Chunky and slippery, Iffy, low-res display, Cramped keyboard, Dual screen gimmick

T-Mobile Sidekick 4G vs LG DoublePlay – heavy texters, recognize

11 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Both of these phones are great for typing, but frankly, the older Sidekick 4G gives you a much better overall experience, although if you want Android Gingerbread and don’t mind the low resolution main display, the DoublePlay is not a bad choice, either.

LG DoublePlay Review Part 1

LG DoublePlay Review by Sydney

2 January 2012
  • Summary: The DoublePlay features a daring and innovative form factor that is surrounded by rather uninspiring hardware, software, and overall performance. Don't get me wrong, this device will get you through the day and perform all tasks satisfactorily. But given the radical dual-display technology that is obviously the stand-out feature, I would expect much more out of the rest of the device.

LG DoublePlay (T-Mobile)

PC Magazine
27 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The LG DoublePlay is built around an interesting concept, but T-Mobile users can easily find a better phone with a QWERTY keyboard.
  • Pros: Nice, bright display. Good call quality.
  • Cons: Big and bulky. Awkward split keyboard design. Second display isn’t very useful.

LG DoublePlay vs Motorola Droid 3 – the specialized texting machine vs the universal phone

18 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Overall, both phones are pretty good, but for different purposes. The Droid 3 is slightly more expensive, but it’s a great universal smartphone that is reliable, durable and can be used for most tasks, including writing a lot of text. The DoublePlay is the best choice if you’re a heavy texter and want an affordable phone that can increase your productivity or give you more freedom when working or playing.

  • Summary: While this may be a unique device added to T-Mobile's Android lineup, it isn't one worth buying. The LG DoublePlay is recommended for people who absolutely want two touchscreens on one device and do...
  • Pros: Dual-Touchscreen, Nice QWERTY Keyboard, Very Responsive

LG DoublePlay (T-Mobile) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
8 December 2011
  • Summary: The LG DoublePlay definitely stands out from the Android crowd, but not for all the right reasons. The phone's second screen can save you time, but the split keyboard is awkward to use as a result. Our biggest beef with this handset is its low-resolution main display; 480 x 320 pixels is borderline laughable for a $99 device.
  • Pros: Secondary display can save time, Long battery life, Solid call quality
  • Cons: Bulky design, Low-res main screen, Inconsistent 4G speeds

LG DoublePlay review

8 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The LG DoublePlay , at first glance, looks like a typical budget Android device: small LCD screen, somewhat dull body, and no front-facing camera.
