  • Pros: Solid call quality. Good music and video playback. Compact for a QWERTY slider.
  • Cons: Non-standard headphone jack. Bland UI needs a little work in spots.

  • Conclusion: The LG Xenon manages to fit a touch screen and large, side-sliding QWERTY keyboard into a small and fairly slim package. It's budget-priced yet well made and rich with features like HSDPA, stereo Bluetooth, GPS, music and video playback.
  • Pros: Compact, good keyboard.
  • Cons: 3G reception not strong.

  • Summary: LG's Xenon isn't a bad little phone, but its design is a little underwhelming and we would have liked native applications for social-networking sites. On the current Telstra plan it's hard to see any value in this device, especially considering the target market.
  • Pros: QWERTY keyboard, shortcut keys, responsive and well-designed interface, shortcuts and widget home screens
  • Cons: Design is a little underwhelming, slider wiggles when opened, excessive and unalterable Telstra customisation, no 3.5mm headphone jack, no social-networking apps, poor value Telstra plans
