CNET First Look
LG Wine (U.S. Cellular)Despite a few problems, the LG Wine's spacious keypad and easy-to-use interface makes this a great low-end phone for U.S. Cellular customers.
[ Music ] >> Nicole Lee: I'm Nicole Lee associate editor for CNET.com and this is a first look at the LG Wine from U.S. Cellular. As you can see here it's a flip phone design and it is very slim and stylish. On the front here is a 1.3 inch color external screen. Above that is the 1.3 megapixel camera lens. Flip it open and you'll find a very nice 2.2 inch color display and underneath the display are 4 dedicated short cut keys. There are shortcuts to the messaging menu, the alarm clock, the images folder and U.S. Cellulars Easy Edge online store. [Inaudible] the navigation array is the number keypad. As you can see the numbers are very nice and big and the keypad is very tactile as well. As far as features go there are not a lot of features on the LG Wine. There's the 1.3 megapixel camera, there's a web browser, there's email, location based services like GPS and so forth but otherwise a pretty low end phone from U.S. Cellular. Call quality was overall very good, but it could be better. Voices sound a little bit harsh sometimes and speaker phone voices sounded a little bit tinny as well. The LG Wine is $29.95 [background music] with a 2-year service agreement from U.S. Cellular. My name is Nicole Lee that has been a first look at the LG Wine.
