For an easy-to-use phone, look elsewhere.

  • Excerpt: While the LG Chocolate Touch has a stylish design and some unique and appealing features, the phone might be best characterized by inconvenience. The layout of the phone is, perhaps, one of the most problematic components. For instance, the basic way to search for a contact entails hitting the small contact list button near the bottom of the screen, going through the letter-narrowing down process of finding the contact (a smart design, but it takes forever), and hitting...

If you are not a music person dont buy this phone

  • Excerpt: I had the Lg chocolate maroon color for a little over a year and let me tell you it was not what I expected.  The first month I had it well it was new and I was getting use to it but after that it was not what I needed it for.  The phone was acting up and it was not good for test messaging.  If you are into the music downloads and using it as an mp3 or so then it's good.  Sometimes when I was on the phone the person on the other end could not hear me.

Great Style, Super Sleek, but Wayyyyyy to Sensitive for my Taste

  • Excerpt: Verizon Account This phone is super cool, great features, and easy to create your own ringtones instead of having to buy them from verizon HOWEVER, the super sensitivity  makes this phone lose ALL appeal.  While creating a text message, if your finger ever slightly hits the end of the touchpad, you lose your entire message lickity spilt.  Phone often unlocks easily and calls people without your knowledge.

Has some problems

  • Excerpt: I've only had 4 or 5 cell phones, but this one is definately my least favorite. My biggest problem with the Chocolate is that it shuts itself off. Not when it's rolling around in my purse ( that I could understand ), just sitting on my desk. A co-workers Chocolate does the same thing. Also, the buttons are extremely sensitive, so you really have to punch in very slowly and carefully. Such a pain in the butt for texting.

LG Chocolate - Way too sensitive

veneciaesther, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: I got the LG Chocolate phone because of its looks and design.  I liked the sliding feature to reveal the keys versus flipping it open.  And I also liked the navigation wheel and the touchscreen feature.  However, this phone is just way too sensitive!  As you are speaking to someone or just checking your messages, if your cheek rests against the screen or even just brushes it, the touchscreen starts going crazy.

never buy a phone for its' color...

  • Excerpt: I originally bought the first version of Verizon's "Chocolate" phone because they offered it in "Chocolate Mint" which happens to be my very favorite color green. Aside from the fact that it was among the first "slide" phones, it also offered "touch" technology (pad, not screen). After 10 months or so, I began to get the deadly "white screen" and the phone would shut off for no apparent reason.

Chocolate phones are not so sweet....

  • Excerpt: The LG Chocolate was, at best, an ok phone.  You should know that the music capabilities (which is what "sold" many people on the chocolate) are REALLY not user friendly.  You have to use the ear phones they provide, and they are AWFUL.  Downloading your music, and the quality of sound, is not too bad.

  • Summary: The phone was difficult to use. The buttons on the cover required up to 3 attempts before sending out calls. When texting the keys were then too sensitive and would type in two letters at a time even using T9. Sometimes letters would show up from buttons not near the ones I had just pushed. Cannot recommend this phone. BUT the phone has a great camera on it.

Tired of it!

  • Excerpt: I've had this phone since 2007, when it was shiny and new, and even the commecials made my mouth water (hence the name Chocolate).  But now it's Oct. 2009, and I have noticed many problems with this phone! Well first off, i can see my fingerprints even when my hands are competely clean!
  • Pros: External design it okay, and i like the sliding feature., Short charging period, Design options okay, Doesn't scratch as much as i thought
  • Cons: Fingerprins are clearly seen!, Touch sensitive buttons aggravate me!, Pointless features! No fun in that!, Battery life - dies in ONE DAY!!, Buttons are too small!, Phone can't read SD Cards---must take out and place back in every time its turned on.

Grrr.

  • Excerpt: I hate this phone. The battery dies in like an hour, it freezes when I try to play videos, sometimes the face screen doesn't do anything when I touch it, text messaging is so hard, and once I dropped it and the screen turned black and fuzzy. I hate this phone. I can't wait to get a new one when our contract renews in December. Ughhhh what a waste of money. Oh, and recently within the last few months, the charger is acting retarted.
  • Pros: Seriously? Idk, the color?
  • Cons: Everything. Grrrrr.
