LG GW620 InTouch Max - Pocket-lint

 

Out of the box it will get you online and "in touch" with very little effort and puts forward a convincing case for budget Android devices

Keyboard, compact, affordable, camera performance

Poor video offering, resistive touchscreen, can be laggy at times

Overall the GW620 is a great handset. There are some limitations that come with the affordability tag – the screen could be a higher resolution and more responsive. Small details, like video capture, could offer more. From a consumer point of view, you...

LG Intouch Max GW620 review

 

Can LG actually make a decent budget Android mobile?

Great keyboard ; Nice social networking overlay ; Compact package ; Good camera ; Option to use S-Class ; Low price

Resistive screen ; Chunky build ; Old version of Android ; Laggy UI at times

The first Android handset from the Korean firm, the LG Intouch Max GW620, has taken a different direction to its competitors - there are very few Android phones that have aimed at the lower end of the handset spectrum, and it's interesting that the...

LG GW620 InTouch Max

 

With a large slideout keyboard and touchscreen, and decent camera this Android phone is well worth a look.

LG GW620 review

 

The LG GW620 comes packed with features including Wi-Fi, GPS and 3G support. It has a reasonably sized 3 inch screen and a 5 megapixel camera with flash. It has all standard ports, using a 3.5mm jack for headphones and a microUSB port. The LG has 150MB...

If you want the unique combination of a Google Android platform with a keyboard then the LG GW620 is a good smartphone to buy.

LG InTouch Max GW620 review

 

A good first effort from LG, but the GW620 is already out of date thanks to Android 1.5, and the comfortable keyboard can't make up for its poor performance.

LG's first Android handset is aimed at budget buyers. But can it tempt you away from the more capable Nexus One?

If you want an Android smartphone with a keyboard, the InTouch Max is small, easy to use and a good price

LG GW620 InTouch Max Review

 

Pitched as a friendly phone, the LG GW620 is LG's first Android handset and it's set on a par with the HTC Tattoo. It's not meant for smartphone-toting technophiles, but for the middle-to-low end of the…

LG GW620 InTouch Max review -

 

Great email functionality, good build quality for the price, intuitive OS, easy syncing of contacts and calendars, access to Android Marketplace

Slight delay between input and action, phone seems to slow down during RAM-intensive apps

LG - GW620 InTouch Max

 

The Android platform is in plenty of handsets now, and choices are widening in terms of features. There are very few Android handsets, though, that sport a slide-out keyboard. In the case of the LG GW620 ...

LG has produced a superb physical keyboard for the GW620 InTouch Max, and then spoilt it by using touch sensitive rather than physical buttons on the front. Keen data creators might find it a good choice, though.
