LG Chocolate U830 has a few downsides, but is otherwise great.
10 May 2009
Excerpt: "The advantages ? A nice, clean, sharp look. Inexpensive for a good quality phone. Comes with SD card so you can easily transfer music, photos, etc. from your computer to the phone. Keypad is easy to use. The disadvantages ? Limit of sound settings. ( If you want your phone to vibrate for text messages, but ring for calls, this phone cannot do it! Its either all muted, all on vibrate, or all on rings. Also, you cannot turn the Camera's "click" ...
Pros: easy to use, looks nice, comes with SD card, inexpensive
Cons: limit of sound settings, gets greasy from fingers easily
Summary: I was really impressed with this phone for about 6 months. Everything works well. It keeps all my appointments infact it pretty much runs my life for me. Then I invested in a Tom Tom 520Go. It will not connect via bluetooth. Apparently the u830 is not a phone that is recommended by Tom Tom. Because this phone has done everything else perfectly I immediately assumed that it would connect like it did to my Garmin but alas no.
Pros: looks good, works well , good graphics, excellent camera
Excerpt: "Very nice phone, fits almost anywhere in your purse or in the back of your phone, very good iif you want to play music. Not that difficult to maneuver. Sound quality through the ear piece is very good. excellent for taking pictures. It has this thing that gives the ablility to make slide shows with your pictures. You can do this for the outside screen and the inside screen. The style of the phone is very unique, its very youthful sort of urban look ...
Pros: Sound Quality
Cons: a little bit overtime you the sound in the earpeice
Summary: i have this phone.. pretty ehh.. getting new one soon after having it for a yr
Pros: good camera keyboard easy to use bluetooth pretty loud speakers
Cons: turns it self off sometimes the sim card moves and unactives the menu goes all weirdo sometimes scratches and gets dirty easy touch pad very sensitive in my pocket.. i nearly got my phone taken off me in class for it.. crap memory
Summary: One last thing I forgot.. Touch music keys seemed like a good idea, but its actually more of a pain than anything else. They don’t work properly. If you knock your phone while the outside light is on, it can start playing music and this can be embarrassing if this happens at an inopportune moment. When you want them to work, they don’t work properly.
Summary: Sleek modern design and easy to use keypad. The keys work great for gaming, but the 2MP camera is terrible. Shinny front shows up fingerprints and scratches too easily. Is not compatible with phone themes, which is a shame, because you only have two options to change the fonts on this phone/ Software is slow and sluggish and does not have expandable memory.
Pros: Looks great. Stylish, modern sleek finish. Keypad is easy to use, great for gaming.
Cons: Grainy photos Sluggish software No expandable memory Not compatible with themes.
