Side

The LG Octane is rather thick at 0.63 inch, but that's because of the extra keyboard layer.

Full keyboard

The LG Octane has a full four-row keyboard with one row just for numbers. There's also a handy navigation array on the right.

Keys

We found typing on the LG Octane to be quite pleasant--the keys are raised, roomy, and easy to use.
