LG Rumor Touch (Virgin Mobile) review

 

Now that Sprint owns Virgin Mobile , it's no surprise that a few of Sprint's phones have made it to the prepaid carrier's lineup. The LG Rumor Touch is one such device, and though the hardware remains the same, the Rumor Touch is now available for...

The LG Rumor Touch has a very text-messaging-friendly interface. Its slider QWERTY keyboard is easy to use, and we like that it has a 3.5mm headset jack for music, e-mail, social networking support, and great call quality.

The LG Rumor Touch's photo quality is average, and the touch screen isn't quite as responsive as we would like.

The LG Rumor Touch is a touch-screen phone for Virgin Mobile that is geared especially for messaging fans.

LG Rumor Touch (Sprint)

 

LG finally gets the formula right with the Rumor Touch, a stellar messaging phone with a 3-inch touch screen and a five-row, slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Well-designed touch UI. Roomy, five-row QWERTY keyboard. Good voice quality. E-mail and social networking built in.

Subpar Web browser. No instant messaging client.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The Rumor Touch is a solid music phone. The side-mounted MicroSD memory card slot accepts 32GB cards; my 16GB SanDisk card worked fine, and LG throws in a 1GB card to get you started. There's 46MB of free internal...

LG Rumor Touch review

 

Long before messaging phones became a trend, LG has been making feature phones with full QWERTY keyboards. Verizon has its line of Voyager and enV handsets, and Sprint has the LG Rumor and the subsequent LG Rumor 2 . Though they made decent messaging...

The LG Rumor Touch has a unique text-messaging-friendly interface, plus it has a five-row QWERTY keyboard. It also has EV-DO Rev. 0, GPS, stereo Bluetooth, a 3.5mm headset jack, e-mail, and easy access to social network sites. Call quality is great as...

The LG Rumor Touch's keyboard layout could be improved, and the photo quality is average.

The LG Rumor Touch is a touch-screen messaging phone from Sprint with a user interface that makes text messaging a breeze.

LG Rumor Touch (Virgin Mobile)

 

The Rumor Touch is a dual-band (850/1900 MHz) EV-DO Rev.0 device. There's no Wi-Fi. The Rumor Touch gets 3G speeds, just not the fastest possible speeds. That's fine here, as you'll mostly be trading text messages, IMs and low-bandwidth mobile Web...

Solid call quality. Roomy keyboard. Plenty of power for a feature phone. Value-packed prepaid and monthly options

Not much cheaper than a smartphone up-front

The LG Rumor Touch combines with Virgin Mobile's inexpensive plans to produce texting nirvana.

LG Rumor Touch Review

 

LG has had a lot of success with their Rumor line on Sprint, along with variants on Alltel and now Verizon Wireless. However, two generations in more of the same will no longer do for Sprint customers so LG has made some major changes to the third...

LG Rumor Touch Review

 

The LG Rumor Touch is a good option for pay-as-you-go cell phone users because it comes with many advanced features and superior calling and messaging options. The phone's large size and operating system are limiting factors, but not ones that get in...

This phone makes loud, clear calls and comes with superior messaging features.

This LG Rumor Touch is heavy, has a short battery life and lacks Wi-Fi capability.

This phone looks and feels like competing smartphones but is slightly more difficult to use.

LG Rumor Touch Review

 

A review of the final chapter of in the LG Rumor saga -- join as we review LG Rumor Touch. Does a new touchscreen interface and five-row QWERTY keyboard make this phone worth the $78 two year contract price?

It seems like the LG Rumor line of phones is doomed; from an under performing debutant, to a terribly done sequel, and a badly timed finale. There is no real reason to own this LG Rumor Touch, although vastly improved from its previous D-pad...
