CNET First Look
LG Xpression 2 delivers feature phone specs for just a buckLG's Xpression 2 costs $0.99 with a carrier contract from AT&T and has a physical keyboard, 2-megapixel camera, and a 3-inch display.
Hello everybody. It's Linh La for CNET. And today I have with me the ultra compact LG Xpression 2 for AT&T. Now as you can obviously tell, this device isn't the most high-tech handset out there. Instead, its entry level specs and user-friendly interface help gear the Xpression 2 towards first time smartphone users who are looking for something simple for either themselves, or a family member. The 3G device is equipped with a slide out four row QWERTY keyboard which includes navigational buttons, a secondary ALT function key, and several shortcut buttons that launch email, text, the notepad and more. The keyboard is comfortable, but for those who have larger hands, you might find it a bit cramped. On the front of the handset is a three inch touch screen with a 400x240 pixel resolution. Some software features include a GPS, a web browser, widgets, and a music player. In addition, the handset has a two megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1, and a one ampere hour battery that has a reported talk time of 3.45 hours. As for its capacity, it has 128 megs of RAM, and 256 megs of internal memory, with the option to expand up to 32 gigs via a micro SD card slot. Now, if you're interested, the phone is available without a contract for $170. But if you sign a two-year carrier agreement, that price drops to 99 cents. Again, I'm Linh, and you've been checking out AT&T's Expression 2. [MUSIC]
