LG Rumor2

CNET
4 October 2009
  • Summary: The LG Rumor2 is a great option for a messaging phone, but LG missed the opportunity to make it both new and improved.
  • Pros: The LG Rumor2 has an easy-to-use design with a vibrant display and a spacious keyboard. It offers solid call quality and extensive e-mail and messaging support.
  • Cons: With a low-res camera and no 3G support, the LG Rumor2 offers no improvements over the original Rumor other than the support for corporate e-mail. The navigation controls and numeric keypad buttons are slick, and the e-mail syncing is unreliable.

LG Rumor2 Review

Digitaltrends
27 April 2009
  • Conclusion: In three prime areas – voice quality, screen clarity and battery life – Rumor2 is slightly superior to the identically-priced and similarly appointed Samsung Rant. But the Rant offers EV-DO connectivity, a better QWERTY keyboard, a higher resolution and better camera, video recording, and access to Sprint’s streaming video services. Which phone you choose depends on the premium you place on these varying amenities.
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality; wide four-row QWERTY keyboard; quality LCD screen; full SMS, email and IM functions; threaded text messaging; bluetooth 2.1
  • Cons: No video recording; oddly-placed period and shift keys; fuzzy pictures; no EV-DO connectivity; slow to initialize MP3 player; overly quiet ringers
