First Look: LG Envoy

1:31 /

The LG Envoy is a decent entry-level phone that's a slim and affordable option for U.S. Cellular customers.

I'm Nicole Lee, Senior Associate Editor for CNET.com, and this is a first look at the LG Envoy for US cellular. It is a very basic entry-level flip phone. The front here is simple, external display with the usual date and time information. Above that is a simple VGA camera. On the side here in the camera button. On the other side is the volume rocker as well as a small 2.5-mm headset jock. The overall phone, as you can see her, has a very nice and compact slim form factor. Open it up again and very nice and bright main display. Underneath that you do get the usual navigation ready with the set of 9 keys. The square toggle here as well as a speaker phone key and the voice command key. Underneath that you do get a number keypad. It's a little bet too flat to the surface for our taste, but it is separated with lineations here and there to make it easier to text and dial. Features of the phone are really basic. You do get the usual text and multimedia messaging here of course, as well as the speaker phone function. We also get gluteus on here, but not much else. The LG Envoy however had mixed great calls, really good audio quality. It's very affordable. Only $9.95 in the new 2-year service agreement with US Cellular. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been a first look at the LG.
