LG Octane Review by Sydney

  • Summary: Now that the enV 3, enV Touch, and Samsung Reality are all gone from Verizon's messaging phone line-up, the Octane is easily the best device in this category. The camera was a little disappointing, but I would definitely recommend it for anyone who is a serious texter.

  • Excerpt: The LG Octane is almost a successor to the LG EnV series of phones. Featuring a very similar look and feel, the Octane is a sturdy and solid messaging phone. However, does the bulky keyboard cause it to fall flat?

  • Conclusion: The LG Octane continues the earlier enV3's tradition with versatile screens, great keyboards, and a solid mix of apps, but the Octane isn't as good a voice phone and the UI feels stale.
  • Pros: Bright, colorful screens. Roomy, tactile QWERTY keyboard. Solid build quality and hinge. Excellent battery life.
  • Cons: Dated UI. Below-average voice quality. Non-standard headphone jack. Uneven messaging options.

  • Conclusion: In a mobile market that’s increasing dominated by smartphones, even entry-level smartphones are down to the price point of high-end feature phones. That means US carriers are making feature phones like the LG Octane more attractive in pricing and deals. The LG Octane is just out, and Verizon is already doing BOGO deals (get one phone and get up to 3 free phones) with a contract.
  • Pros: Easy to use hardware keyboard, solid and attractive build., Pro: Easy to use keyboard, solid and attractive build.
  • Cons: Confusing navigation in VZ Navigator, 2.5mm audio jack without any headset in the box., Con: Confusing navigation in VZ Navigator, 2.5mm audio jack without any headset in the box.

LG Octane Review

  • Conclusion: Overall, the LG Octane is not a suitable replacement for the enV3 due to the call volume fluctuation and echo issues that it exhibited with phone calls. Because of this, we really can’t recommend the Octane for people who would use it for a lot of calls, but if you are the type of person who only place or receive calls on occasion, you might be OK with it (we would suggest that you try it out first).
  • Pros: Compact and stylish, Larger external display than the enV3
  • Cons: Call quality is bad on both ends, QWERTY keyboard is all one piece, not individual buttons, Camera image quality not as good as the enV3

LG Octane – Mediocre call quality

16 November 2010
  • Excerpt: LG Octane looks pretty similar to LG’s Envy line up of messaging devices. Both these phones are from Verizon Wireless. Octane is a clamshell phone and on the lid, you have an external display along with a numeric keypad. On the inside, there is a bigger screen with a four row QWERTY keyboard. The display on the outside is 1.2 inches big and you get limited menu. This screen can also be used as camera view finder.
