Excerpt: Introduction Sprint and LG are adding to their line of environmentally friendly phones with the LG Remarq, a small device with a full QWERTY keyboard, 1.3MP camera and easy access to all of your favorite social networks. It may not have the top-of-line features you’ll see in other phones, but Sprint is proud of their endeavors to give consumers a few options in the earth-friendly market.
Conclusion: If you like vertical slider QWERTY phones and dig this type of design, the LG Remarq is actually a pretty cool looking phone. It doesn’t look like a phone born from recycled materials, but it does possess plenty of eco-friendly qualities. We like the phone’s bright and colorful screen, the roomy keyboard and excellent voice quality. Social network fanatics won’t be happy without dedicated apps and the camera is a bit too low end.
Summary: In a word, the LG Remarq is simple. It’s features are basic, but they perform well. The keyboard itself is outstanding. Though the camera isn’t the best and the location presented a problem, it’s still usable. However, Sprint also has other eco-friendly options that may be a better. The Samsung Reclaim features a 2 megapixel camera, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, ships with a better battery, and is free.
Conclusion: Callers were generally pleased with audio quality on the LG Remarq LN240 , but on our end it could have been better. On their end they said we were a bit hollow but otherwise good and rated us an 8/10. To us they cut out more than we’d like, though voice reproduction was natural and volume good. The battery is rated at a 5.5 hours of talk time, right about average for a CDMA dumbphone these days.
Pros: Materials are 87% recyclable, Keyboard is nice to use
Cons: Materials are sub-par, No GPS or 3G, Poor media player
