LG Revere (Verizon Wireless)

The Good The LG Revere is a compact and lightweight flip phone with features like a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, mobile e-mail, and the ability to upload pictures to Facebook. Call quality is very good, and the Revere is very affordable.

The Bad The LG Revere doesn't have the best photo quality, and social networking features are rudimentary at best.

The Bottom Line The LG Revere is a no-frills entry-level handset for Verizon Wireless customers who just want to make calls and not much else.

Review

LG Revere (Verizon Wireless)

While Verizon Wireless is famous for its smartphones like the HTC ThunderBolt, the Motorola Droid X2, and the CDMA iPhone 4, it still has plenty of customers who would rather have a simple handset. And it doesn't get much simpler than the LG Revere, which is a basic clamshell handset without a lot of frills. It's not completely devoid of features, however, as it does have a 1.3-megapixel camera, mobile e-mail capabilities, GPS, Bluetooth, and the ability to post to several social networks. It's also very affordable at only $49.99 after a two-year agreement if you buy it in stores. You can actually get it for free if you buy it online.

Design
The LG Revere has a traditional clamshell design. At 3.78 inches tall by 1.95 inches wide by 0.72 inch thick, the Revere makes no bones about being an affordable handset with its rather cheap-feeling plastic shell. Still, it has curves and rounded corners that do make it comfortable to hold. Its black-and-gray color scheme is a tad boring, but we're OK with that.
