Excerpt: The LG Venus has dual screens and a good array of multimedia functions. It comes with a music player and a 2 megapixel camera. This article presents this phone's design, user interface, features and performance.
Excerpt: Based on name, it’s easy to assume the Venus is a paisley phone with bezels. In reality, it is the latest sleek phone from LG. (The stylish company released a $900 USD Prada phone last year.) And it is hard not to fall in love with its two level design, slick black (or, if you desire, pink) finish, dual screen faceplate, and well-placed touchscreen. Looks aside, however, there isn’t much substance to impress.
Pros: Easy to use; nice camera; very original design
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.
