CNET First Look
LG Imprint (MetroPCS)Apart from looking cute, the compact LG Imprint has a spacious QWERTY keyboard, good call quality, and onboard music player.
>> [ Music ] I'm Jessica Dolcourt from cnet.com here to take a first look at the LG Imprint from Metro PCS. Interestingly, the Imprint is the clone of the LG Remarq, but unlike the Remarq, the Imprint is not built as an eco phone. That said, it does come with the same leaf shaped speaker punch-out on the back, and an energy star rated charger. The phone's design is hands-down the best thing about it. It's stylish, comfortable in the hand, and surprisingly dense. That makes it heavy enough not to get lost in your bag. We're also impressed with the sturdy sliding mechanism and with the spacious QWERTY keyboard with its slightly domed keys. This phone has definitely been made with verbose people in mind. On the front, you're looking at a 2.2 inch screen with bright colors and pretty crisp resolution. Below it are the two soft keys, a four directional navigation pad with central OK button and SEND and END buttons that also double as SPEAKERPHONE and BACK buttons. On the left side is the Micro USB port and dedicated camera button. On the right there's the 2.5 millimeter headset jack, the volume rocker, and a MicroSD card slot capable of holding up to 16 gigabytes of memory. On the back, there's that 1.3 megapixel camera that are frankly pretty mediocre, but we do like the onboard photo editor and effects. There's the usual array of tools inside including SMS and MMS and support for Pop3 and IMAP E-mail. There's stereo Bluetooth as well and GPS for Metro PCS's navigator. We enjoyed good call quality with the Imprint which also supports 3G speeds. The LG Imprint costs $109 from Metro PCS but there are sometimes deals that can get you as much as half off. I'm Jessica Dolcourt and you've been looking at the LG Imprint from Metro PCS.
