The Good The LG Glance is a skinny yet stylish basic camera phone with decent photo and call quality.
The Bad The LG Glance's woven metal back may seem a little cheesy, and the mobile e-mail application costs extra.
The Bottom Line The LG Glance is an affordable sleek and stylish entry-level camera phone for Verizon Wireless customers.
LG Glance (Verizon Wireless)
Just when we thought the days of the skinny phone were behind us, LG surprises us with yet another thin handset. The LG Glance is one of the slimmest phones we've ever seen, at only 0.38 inch thick. It has quite an elegant design overall, and though it's a rather basic phone, it still has a decent camera and GPS capabilities. The LG Glance is certainly one of the better entry-level phones we've seen from Verizon Wireless, and at $49.99 with a two-year service agreement and a $50 mail-in rebate, it's quite affordable as well.
Usually when we encounter entry-level phones, they feel like cheap plastic when held. Not so with the LG Glance. It's clad in metallic trim, which gives it a decent heft of 2.92 ounces. Measuring 4.31 inches long by 1.87 inches wide by 0.38 inch thick, the Glance is also very thin. It has a slim and sleek form factor with slightly rounded corners. We like the soft gold trim on the front but have mixed feelings about the woven metal backplate--it just seems a bit cheesy for our tastes.
