LG 'Glimmer': an iPhone Slider

 

Best of both worlds?

LG Glimmer AX830

 

Alltel's flashy, touch-screen phone is both fun and frustrating.

Good looking. Decent camera.

Poorly designed keypad leads to misdialing. No e-mail option.

LG Glimmer Cell Phone

 

This touch-screen phone from Alltel Wireless is no iPhone killer, but it's still worth checking out.

Sleek, good-looking design ; Includes GPS and a 2-megapixel camera

Keys are hard to press ; Touch screen isn't always responsive

The Glimmer is not an iPhone killer, but in most respects it isn't trying to be. It's a good-looking phone with a handy (if imperfect) touch screen and a host of impressive features

LG Electronics LG Glimmer

 

Apple's iPhone has spawned many imitators. Some have been relatively successful (see the LG Voyager), others less so. As an iPhone competitor, the LG Glimmer falls into the latter category. Judged on its own merits--and not weighed against Apple's...

A good-looking, feature-packed phone that's not quite ready to rival the iPhone.

LG Glimmer review:

 

Alltel has long been the fifth wheel when compared with the big four national carriers. It doesn't have its own network in as many states as the others, and its cell phone lineup has traditionally been rather mediocre and stale (with a few notable...

The LG Glimmer is a stylish phone with a really smart concept, combining a touch-screen display plus a slider keypad. It has excellent features, including GPS navigation, EV-DO support, and a 2-megapixel camera.

The LG Glimmer offers a lackluster Web-browsing experience, and we thought the EV-DO connection could've been a lot smoother.

The LG Glimmer combines the glamour of a touch screen, the convenience of a slider keypad, plus high-end features to produce a top-notch phone for Alltel customers.

LG Glimmer Review

 

Following the current trend for touch-sensitive phones, the LG Glimmer is the first non-smartphone for Alltel Wireless to incorporate a large 2.8” touch display and sliding numeric keypad to attract consumers that might be swayed into buying a similar...

LG AX830 Glimmer Cell Phone

 

Introduction So you want a touch screen phone, but you don't want the problems associated with getting an iPhone? Assuming you're an Alltel customer LG claims to have the phone for you. The AX830, or more commonly called the Glimmer, is a sliding...

Conclusion: The Glimmer (AX830) comes from a company, LG, with a reputation for quality products and it does not disappoint. The phone has a touch screen which enables quick menu navigation and it is quite the stylish phone. The Glimmer also contains...

Review: LG Glimmer

 

LG has crafted a classy Saturday night phone with a touch screen interface. The Glimmer succeeds at being above average--but not superlative--at most tasks.

The Glimmer is a great-looking slider phone with a generous 2.8-inch touch screen.

The Glimmer is not an iPhone killer, but in most respects it isn't trying to be. It's a good-looking phone with a handy (if imperfect) touch screen and a host of impressive features.
