LG 1200 - red (Sprint)

The Good Slick design; decent camera quality; plentiful menu shortcuts.

The Bad No speakerphone; infrared port has limited use; mixed battery life.

The Bottom Line Though the LG L1200's camera and messaging options are admirable, the absence of some key features won't please cell phone fanatics.

LG 1200 - red (Sprint)

Review summary

LG takes one step forward but two steps back with the L1200, its first GSM mobile with a built-in camera. The new Cingular handset looks sharp and takes above-average photos, but mobile professionals will bemoan the L1200's lack of a speakerphone and its poor standby battery life, while casual conversationalists will be disappointed by its skimpy customization options. At $249.99, it's fairly priced for a camera phone, but you should be able to find it for a more reasonable $99.99 with service. A study in sleek, two-tone gray, the LG L1200 features long, smooth lines that taper toward the bottom, making it look taller than it really is. Measuring 3.4 by 1.7 by 1 inches and weighing 3.3 ounces, the L1200 is relatively light for its size and fits nicely, if a bit snugly, in a jeans pocket. The phone also flips shut with a solid, satisfying clap.
