Slide-out QWERTY keyboard

As we mentioned, the Quantum features a full QWERTY keyboard to help e-mail fanatics crank out messages with ease. Interestingly, the home screen doesn't switch to landscape mode when the keyboard is open, or at least it didn't on the demo units.

Easy to use

Overall, we found the Quantum's keyboard fairly comfortable to type on. The buttons are a good size with decent spacing between them. You also get a dedicated key for emoticons.

As with all Windows Phone 7 devices, the LG Quantum features three shortcut keys below the display: back, start, and search. The Quantum features two touch-sensitive keys and one physical button.

Side profile

Despite having a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, the Quantum was relatively thin. The right side features a volume rocker and a camera button.
