Review: Sidekick LX

Is It Your Type? Body Three S's

With a gigantic new screen, the LX is finally the Sidekick's chance to shine. But can it hold a candle to all the other hot new handsets? With Video Tour.

Danger, Sharp and T-Mobile have finally put together Sidekick you always wanted. It's slim enough to slide in your pocket, has a much better screen and finally has picture messaging. But other phones have raised the bar so much higher, are all these improvements enough?

too little. . .too late

If this phone was released about a year ago I think it would be something to get excited about. But after the release of the Apple iphone and the upcoming release of the LG-VX10000 I would have to say this device is a bit behind the 8 ball. . .
I agree for the most part.

If the lx would have been released with a 3.2mp af camera, stereo bluetooth, and video record/playback it would have been one killer device.

But still a 1.3mp, no video playback, and no stereo bluetooth? Come on danger...

Hey Eric its actually still a 1.3 mp camera and not a 2 like u stated in the video.

Just a Heads up Very Happy
we got it right in the written review (did ya see that?), but i got it wrong in the video. unfortunately youtube makes it impossible to correct errors like this. ARG. yes, it is 1.3 MP, just like on the SK3.

"You can hold down select on the trackball when a name or number is higlighted to bring up a contextual menu that will let you dial or text that contact, however you cannot just press the send key to dial the selected number. For some reason Danger insists that the send key is a page down key, even in lists with telephone numbers."

When you want to call a contact all you have to do is double click the send butoon. =O OMG Say it aint soooooooo!!!!!!
Yes it's true, try it for yourself if u think it's not true. lol
Speaking only for myself...

I would have never guessed that in a million years. That's just about the most unintuitive, un-discoverable shortcut I've ever heard of on a phone.

You shouldn't have to be psychic to figure out how to call someone ea...
