Excerpt: The GW620 is LG’s first Android device to hit the Indian market. It’s being called the Friendly Smartphone and I’m here to tell you if that’s true. So here’s a closer look. Form Factor LG has gone with a touchscreen coupled with the versatility of a slide out QWERTY keypad. There’s just one issue with the overall design concept – the touch-sensitive keys on either side of the center menu key are too sensitive and you’ll quite often find yourself back on the home page or...
Excerpt: The LG GW620 , the Korean manufacturer's first Android handset, is having a bit of an identity crisis. It occupies a pretty strange space in the marketplace, straddling the line between being a fun and accessible mobile, with a heavy emphasis on social networking and a hefty five megapixel camera, and a serious smartphone, with a rugged five line qwerty keyboard and preloaded office apps. It isn't the best in class at either job but it does occupy a nice middleground.
Summary: T he fact that LG has also chosen the Android platform is a wise choice. Important developments have been made in this domain and the brands that are not (yet) using Android are falling behind. The use of Android in the new LG GW620 smartphone is well done. Next to the standard menu, there is also the LG menu, so that the LG GW620 Android smartphone gets its own feeling. You can choose which menu you want to use.
Conclusion: Overall the GW620 is a great handset. There are some limitations that come with the affordability tag – the screen could be a higher resolution and more responsive. Small details, like video capture, could offer more. From a consumer point of view, you don't get the sense of completion that you do from something like the Motorola DEXT, which is probably its closest rival. But the essentials are here.
Pros: Keyboard, compact, affordable, camera performance
Cons: Poor video offering, resistive touchscreen, can be laggy at times
