is a really nice device -- it's got a good design, it's lightweight, has all the benefits of the Android OS platform, and even includes some of the flashier features which are so beloved in this iPhone era we all live in.
It's well suited to its role as an entry-level smartphone, not just to those looking for a simple device to satisfy a teenager, or a basic smartphone for minimalist use, but also for people looking to "get the feel" of owning a smartphone...
Pros: Excellent price/performance ratio, Good design
Excerpt: The LG Vortex is powered by the Android 2.2 operating system. It has a 3.2 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth functions and makes a good entry level device for first time smartphone owners.
Summary: LG cut a few corners to make the Vortex a less expensive option. This is obvious in the weaker processor which also results in the inability of the phone to display Adobe Flash websites. It can also be seen in the lack of the flash on the camera and the low resolution of the screen. That said, however, most users will still find this an adequate Android phone. It is a way to get an Android smart phone that is less expensive than the higher end models.
Summary: The LG Vortex is a touchscreen phone with a simple design and a good selection of features such as Wi-Fi, GPS and a 3.2-megapixel camera. The touch-screen phone will be powered by Android 2.2 with electricity and it is considered entry-Android phone, which takes into account slower than most high end smartphones.
Cons: LG Vortex has a simple and slim design, Features include EV-DO Rev.A, GPS, 3G Mobile Hotspot ability and Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth, 3.2 MP camera, Ships with Android 2.2, Vortex, not as swift as higher-end smartphones, Camera does lacks LED flash and HD video capture, Browser does not support Flash video, Bing Search and Bing Maps available instead of Google services, Preloaded apps and service cannot be uninstalled
Summary: Today for review I’ve got another phone from our friends at Verizon Wireless, it’s the LG Vortex running Android 2.2. The Vortex is small enough to fit right in your pocket comfortably and it offers all of the features you’ve grown accustomed to with Android phones. The phone though is a bit underpowered and there are a few things I’d improve upon, still though it’s a decent entry level offering.
Pros: Small and well made, Fights nicely in the pocket, Simple to use, Android 2.2 installed
Cons: Hardware buttons are sensitive, can be hit accidentally, Screen resolution is low, Verizon junk installed, Typing can be frustrating, Uses Bing
