Review: LG Rumor

Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

The Rumor's menu system doesn't differ much from other Sprint models in the same class of devices. Hitting the center of the D-pad brings you into the main menu, which has nine options. It is viewable in grid or list form. This grid gives you access to all of the phone's capabilities. The D-pad can also take you to user-assignable shortcuts, such as to the media player or calendar. With the customizable D-pad shortcuts, as well as several dedicated keys to applications, such as the camera, it is rare that you actually have to open the main menu and use it unless you are going to change the phone's settings.

The left soft key takes you to the messaging menu, and the right soft key takes you to your contacts. Once you dive into each separate menu item, the default is to show you a simple list of actions or steps you can take to access features or change settings.

In all, the menu is a simple affair, and doesn't do much to impress. It takes all of 30 seconds to figure it out and use it effectively.
