Review

LG GS170 - red (T-Mobile)

LG made its T-Mobile debut this year with three phones--the Sentio, the dLite, and finally, the LG GS170. Whereas the Sentio and dLite touted interesting design and multimedia features, the GS170 is a decidedly entry-level phone. Still, you do get a VGA camera, a speakerphone, and Bluetooth, and the call quality isn't bad either. The LG GS170 is available for free with a new two-year agreement.

Design
The LG GS170's design is that of a basic rectangular flip phone with a simple plastic shell. At 3.6 inches long by 1.9 inches wide by 0.7 inch thick, the LG GS170 is a slim and compact with smooth tapered sides and rounded corners. The surface is made out of a soft touch material that makes the handset easier to grip. The GS170 is lightweight at 2.8 ounces. It's wrapped in red all around with hints of gray on the sides.
