Verizon's LG Cosmos 3

Available from Verizon for free with contract, the LG Cosmos 3 is a keyboard-equipped feature phone. Disappointingly, it sports many of the same specs as its predecessor, the Cosmos 2, such as the 1.3-megapixel camera and 2-inch screen.

A surprisingly sharp display

The 2-inch TFT screen has a 320x240-pixel resolution and can support up to 262,000 colors. The display has a wide viewing angle and surprisingly retains a lot of details with photos.

A view above

At the top of the phone is a 3.5mm headphone jack for audio listening. You can remove the battery door by prying open a small indent. Once detached, you can gain access to the microSD card slot, which is expandable up to 32GB, and the battery.
