LG Vortex

25 December 2010
  • Summary: The LG Vortex is a wonderful entry-level Android smartphone for Verizon Wireless, as long as you know its limitations.
  • Pros: The LG Vortex has a slim and simple design with a good touch-screen display. Features include GPS, EV-DO Rev. A, Wi-Fi with 3G Mobile Hotspot capabilities, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and stereo Bluetooth, and it ships with Android 2.2.
  • Cons: The LG Vortex isn't as fast as higher-end smartphones, and the camera has neither LED flash nor HD video capture. The browser doesn't support Flash video. It comes with Bing search and Bing maps instead of Google's own services. The price is not as competitive as other comparable handsets. You can't uninstall preloaded apps and services.

  • Conclusion: The LG Vortex, Verizon's version of the excellent LG Optimus One, is not as good as the others thanks to Verizon's bloatware.

LG Vortex Cell Phone Review

17 December 2010
  • 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.

Review of Verizon LG Vortex

Testfreaks blog
6 December 2010
  • 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
