Review of Virgin Mobile LG Rumor Touch

Testfreaks blog
2 June 2010
  • Conclusion: The LG Rumor Touch is just a very underwhelming phone overall, it’s a phone that I would not be happy with at all if I was to own it. The screen is big yes, but the interface and responsiveness of the touchscreen are just not that good. The interface is just not very finger friendly, and the responsiveness of the screen isn’t that great either. It’s a phone that wants to be smart, but just isn’t really.
  • Pros: Nice, well made phone, Full keyboard, Decent battery life
  • Cons: Poor picture quality, Very glossy screen, not good in bright light, Interface is no finger-friendly, Call quality was spotty, Fairly frustrating experience navigating the phone, Touchscreen isn’t as responsive as it should be

LG Rumor Touch

MobileTechReview.com
23 April 2010
  • Conclusion: It’s good to see LG and Sprint add some 3G power to the Rumor line and the Rumor Touch offers competitive features such as a full QWERTY keyboard, a 3” touch screen, Sprint TV, GPS with Sprint Navigation and Sprint Music. The phone should please Rumor fans who are looking to upgrade while keeping their messaging needs, web surfing habits and storage options unaltered. We wish that LG had done some styling updates for the Rumor Touch and given it a better camera.
  • Pros: Full 5-line keyboard makes typing easier, Sprint services (Sprint TV, Navigation and Music) are on all here thanks to 3G., Pro: Full 5-line keyboard makes typing easier, Sprint services (Sprint TV, Navigation and Music) have good speed and performance, 3.5mm audio jack.
  • Cons: Phone’s styling shows its age as does the 2 megapixel camera., Con: Phone’s styling shows its age, so does the 2 megapixel camera.

  • Excerpt: LG has had a lot of success with their Rumor line on Sprint, along with variants on Alltel and now Verizon Wireless.  However, two generations in more of the same will no longer do for Sprint customers so LG has made some major changes to the third member of the Rumor family.  As the name implies, the Rumor Touch adds a touch screen to the familiar side-sliding design, but the upgrades don’t stop there.
  • Pros: Above average call quality and great battery life, Good build quality, Usable interface tweaks, More multimedia options than previous Rumor devices
  • Cons: Touchscreen input is not always acted upon, Keyboard is usable, but could be better, Interface and front key layout take a bit of getting used to
