First Look: LG Helix

1:23 /

The LG Helix is a basic camera flip phone for Cricket Communications that is easy to use.

>> I'm Nicole Lee, Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is a First Look at the LG Helix for Cricket Communications. As you can see here, it is a very basic traditional flip phone design. On the front here is a very simple 1-inch external display. Above that you do get the 1.3 megapixel camera. On the side here you do get the volume rocker, the 2.5-millimeter headset jack, as well as the charger jack here. On the other side you do get the camera button. Flip it open you get a nice 2-inch display. They are very nice and colorful. Underneath that you do get the typical navigation keys, of course. All the keys as well as the number key pad are pretty flat to the surface. It is a little bit difficult to dial by feel, but there is enough delineations and separation between each key so that you could still use it easily. Features of the phone are fairly basic and you do get a 1.3 megapixel camera like I said before, but you don't get 3G, you don't get a music player on here, you also don't get a camcorder in the camera, but you do get Bluetooth, speakerphone, text and multimedia messaging, the basic stuff. The LG Helix is available for $120, but there is without any contract. I'm Nicole Lee, this has been a first look at the LG Helix.
