Mid-range slider phones tend to be pretty dull, but the LG KS360 offers something different. Pop it open and instead of a standard keypad you get a full QWERTY one--designed with messaging in mind. We limbered up our thumbs, ready to put the KS360 through some serious texting. For the full story, heck out the CNET UK review or see our review of the comparable LG Neon.
