LG Xenon

 

QWERTY keyboard, shortcut keys, responsive and well-designed interface, shortcuts and widget home screens

Design is a little underwhelming, slider wiggles when opened, excessive and unalterable Telstra customisation, no 3.5mm headphone jack, no social-networking apps, poor value Telstra plans

LG's Xenon isn't a bad little phone, but its design is a little underwhelming and we would have liked native applications for social-networking sites. On the current Telstra plan it's hard to see any value in this device, especially considering the...

LG Xenon review: LG Xenon

 

The LG Xenon has an attractive touch-screen display, a great QWERTY keyboard, customizable standby screens, plenty of shortcuts, and lots of features like 3G speeds, quad-band support, a 2-megapixel camera, GPS, and more.

The LG Xenon suffers from the lack of POP or IMAP e-mail support, the touch screen suffers from a slight learning curve, the Web browser feels a little clunky, and you're limited to only six widgets to customize the home screen.

Despite a few problems, the LG Xenon is one of the better messaging phones we've seen, plus it has a cool touch-screen interface and plenty of features.

LG Xenon

 

The LG Xenon GR500 is a lightweight slider phone aimed at the texting generation. Unlike many sliders with a QWERTY keyboard, the Xenon is a full-blown touch-screen phone. It's styled to look like a bulky RAZR imitator, complete with a small "chin" at...

Solid call quality. Good music and video playback. Compact for a QWERTY slider

Non-standard headphone jack. Bland UI needs a little work in spots

It's tough to fault the LG Xenon, a powerful slider phone that can handle media tasks with aplomb.

LG Xenon

 

Matching a touchscreen with a full-QWERTY keyboard at this price point is fantastic. Anyone looking to make their cyber-life mobile should check out the Xenon.

Touchscreen navigation ; Good keyboard, if tiny keys ; Decent web browser

No 3.5mm headphone socket ; No memory card included

The LG Xenon scores well on our checklist of what we want in phones for the youth market. The touchscreen is good, and for those who hate smearing the screen with fingerprints, the QWERTY keyboard is better. Calling is sound and messaging is fine, let...

Review: Review of the LG Xenon QWERTY slider

 

Ricky takes LG's hot new GR500 Xenon for AT&T out for a test in this in-depth review. The Xenon features a sliding QWERTY keyboard form factor and a large touchscreen display. Click on through to find out how well this messaging powerhouse performs.

I have had my phone for a year now and I love it and wouldn't trade it for nothing. I don't test phone durability by sitting on them. Anything with a lcd screen will break if sat on. NICE phone!!

Review: LG Xenon

 

The Xenon is LG's latest attempt to merge touch phone on the outside with QWERTY messaging phone on the inside. Does the result taste as good as it sounds?

LG Xenon Review - Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

There's nothing like choice. Just ask AT&T who released two very similar side-sliding QWERTY touch screen phones in the same week: the LG Xenon and the Samsung Impression. Much like the dynamic duo of touch screen slab phones, the LG Vu and Samsung...

Very compact for a touch screen phone with a full QWERTY keyboard. Good keyboard. Reasonably priced for the features it offers ;

Reception not very strong, user interface inconsistencies make the phone less fun and pleasing (accelerometer works in just a few apps, some apps rotate while others don't, lack of an on-screen QWERTY, scrolling through lists isn't easy)

. Granted these are higher tier phones on Verizon, but we'd like to see more polished software from LG's touch screen phones on AT&T.

LG Xenon showcased at CTIA

 

LG's latest eye candy phone at CTIA is called Xenon and it's got all the good things that can make most other multimedia phones look like snuff boxes. Firstly, it's got a pretty good ‘size' (no pun intended here). You can feast your eyes on the...

Leaked pics of the LG's upcoming slider are over the Internet. The LG Xenon features a QWERTY keyboard, touchscreen and a 2 Megapixel camera. It should be available on AT&T by April in three colors red, black and one thats kept under wraps....
