8 January 2010

Summary: Despite the majority of press coverage centering around smartphones this launch season, it's nice to see a feature rich, solid performer like the LG LX370 in the regular phone category. Minus the frustration with the 2.5mm headphone jack and the small font size, the LX370 is a great mid-range device for anyone seeking a reliable device with decent multimedia functionality. Offering strong battery life, it would make for a great travel companion.
Excerpt: The LG LX 370 is a nice, compact camera-ready phone. Beyond these recommendations though, the limited multimedia options and so-so Internet browsing keep it clearly out of the smartphone category. Bearing this in mind, discerning buyers will find the handset to be a capable performer, but mostly hard sell.
Pros: Great 2.0 MP camera and camcorder; nice, responsive keys; solid call quality
Cons: Not built for intensive Internet browsing; limited multimedia functionality; annoying interface; high MSRP
