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.
Conclusion: Kudos to LG for thinking outside the box when it comes to the design of the LG Doubleplay , but in all seriousness, it's simply not practical when it comes down to typing messages. Rather, we find the whole thing challenging as we resort to using the on-screen keyboard instead. In addition, we do like the multi-tasking aspects found with the secondary touchscreen, but it doesn't particularly deepen the experience – nor does it bring any innovative qualities.
Pros: Responsive performance
Cons: Uninspiring & chunky design, Awful calling quality, Difficult to use the keyboard, Limited functions with the secondary display
