The Good The LG Neon II has a simple and compact slider form factor, with a full four-row QWERTY keyboard, a music player, GPS, quad-band GSM, and 3G support. It's affordable as well.
The Bad The LG Neon II's touch-screen ability is unique only to the phone dialer application. The 2-megapixel camera isn't much better than its predecessor's, and we dislike the touch-sensitive soft keys.
The Bottom Line We applaud some of the feature updates of the LG Neon II, but its various quirks prevent us from recommending it as there are better quick messaging devices in AT&T's lineup.
LG Neon II
With the exception of the CTIA Fall 2010. A sequel to the LG Neon of last year, the Neon II has a slightly different keypad design, a four-row QWERTY keyboard instead of three, and it now supports 3G. However, it still has that quirky touch screen that only works with the phone dialer, the 2-megapixel camera remains the same, and we're not huge fans of the touch-sensitive soft keys. The LG Neon II is available for $29.99 after a two-year agreement and a $50 rebate., LG hasn't released a new messaging phone for AT&T in almost a year. Enter the LG Neon II, which debuted around the start of
The LG Neon II resembles its predecessor with its overall shape and size. Measuring 4.06 inches long by 1.96 inches wide by 0.6 inch thick, the Neon II has a simple rectangular silhouette, with rounded corners and straight sides. It's not quite as glossy as the original Neon, though; the Neon II is wrapped in a smooth matte plastic all the way around. The Neon II weighs in at around 3.7 ounces and feels good in the hand.
The 2.4-inch display on the Neon II has a 320x240-pixel resolution and 262,000-color support, which is identical to that of the first Neon. The screen looks crisp and colorful, with bright images and sharp text. You can adjust the size and color of the dialing font, the menu font size, the backlight timer, the brightness, the menu style, and the appearance of the clock and calendar on the home screen.
