CNET First Look
Text and talk with the LG Rumor ReflexThe LG Rumor Reflex is a feature phone with a responsive 3-inch touch screen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It's perfect for people who want to text and talk, but don't require a data plan.
Hello everybody. I'm Lyn from CNET bringing you guys the LG Rumor Reflex from Sprint. Now this is a feature phone that has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a 3-inch display. At 240 by 400 pixels, it isn't the most vibrant or sharpest of displays but the screen itself is pretty responsive; I was able to scroll through menu items and click on links really easily. Even texting without the use of the physical keyboard is fine but it can get a little difficult because the screen is small. If you wanna text or write a lot, the slide-out keyboard is definitely the way to go, the buttons pop out a little so they're easy to feel and there's little resistance when you press them; my one concern is that the keys are small, I already have petite hands but I still felt that everything was a little cramped. Other things I liked about the device was that it's pretty lite and compact for a slide-out phone. The handset can be slow at times, the processor is only 480 megahertz which is fine when you wanna do basic stuff like make calls or send text but if you wanna surf the web or start using the camera, it can get a little laggy. Speaking of the camera, it's only 2 megapixels but there's a shortcut button on the side that'll open the feature up. If you're interested, the Rumor Reflex on Sprint will cost you $30.00 after you sign a 2-year contract and send in a $50.00 mailing rebate. If you don't wanna commit yourself for that long, the device is also available on Boost Mobile for $79.99. Again, I'm Lyn from CNET bringing you guys the LG Rumor Reflex.
