LG Imprint MN240 - black (MetroPCS)

The Good The LG Imprint has an appealing, compact design; a spacious QWERTY keyboard; e-mail; and an onboard music player.

The Bad The 2.5mm headset jack isn't as convenient as a 3.5mm jack is, so those using the music player may need to purchase new headphones. Its photo quality is mediocre.

The Bottom Line The LG Imprint's sturdy, attractive, and compact design, and roomy QWERTY keyboard make it a great introductory phone for texters.

LG Imprint MN240 - black (MetroPCS)

At first glance, the plastic-smooth and podlike LG Imprint for MetroPCS looks akin to the KinOne slider, though it's actually a twin to Sprint's LG Remarq, right down to the stylish leaf-shaped speaker punched into the phone's back cover and the Energy Star-rated charger. Interestingly, unlike the Remarq, MetroPCS isn't billing the Imprint as an eco-phone. For one, LG didn't build it with recycled plastic and it doesn't come in the Remarq's soy ink packaging.

With a full QWERTY keyboard and room to spread out, the Imprint matches its design strengths as a texting phone with SMS and MMS capabilities. While its camera is mediocre, its onboard MP3 player and strong call quality make the $109 LG Imprint a sturdy and comfortable handset for texters and e-mailers at a price that won't break the bank.
