LG Venus Review

18 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Verizon’s LG Venus goes for $249.99 USD, a bit high compared to phones of similar capabilities. Verizon offers a $50 online discount, which makes it more reasonable. It falls under Verizon’s conventional data and minute plans. It comes with a microSD card, which will work for light photo taking and music storage.The Venus has a great feel and looks wonderful, which may be worth the extra dough. It is perfect for a socialite who wants to have a hot-looking phone.
  • Pros: Easy to use; nice camera; very original design
  • Cons: Weak music quality; average phone

LG Venus

13 February 2008
  • Conclusion: If you are looking for a stylish, strong multimedia phone, the Venus should be on your short list. The excellent audio, smooth video playback and crisp screen make for a very pleasurable multimedia experience. The phone has good looks and good build quality. The touch screen technology indeed adds to its appeal. We love the fact that the Venus, like many recent Verizon phones, comes with aGPS and supports VZ Navigator which has good location-based services.
  • Pros: Excellent multimedia experience with fantastic audio and gorgeous screen for indoor use. V CAST videos play smoothly and better than on many other Verizon phones. Games play well on the phone and VZ Navigator has outstanding performance.
  • Cons: Can’t see the screen outdoors. Pedestrian camera performance. No wired headset included.

  • Pros: Luxurious feel. Innovative touch-screen interface.
  • Cons: Touch buttons are ever so slightly sluggish. Incompatible with one Bluetooth headset we tested. Expensive.
