Review: LG X venture for AT&T

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  

The X venture from LG fills a little hole in AT&T's lineup. It's an inexpensive rugged handset that offers a reasonable level of performance for the dollar, making it a decent value for cost-conscious buyers.

The IP68 / mil-spec 810G-rated X venture can handle lots of soaking and a decent amount of abuse. It's a perfect companion for a day on the beach or in the woods. You'll find the rugged frame can brush off everyday drops and spills with no problem. I wish the screen were a bit easier to see outdoors, but you can't beat the battery life. Both voice quality and data speeds were not where I'd like them to be, but they should suffice for most users.

The software is capable, if a bit overwhelming. LG gives users so many options for customizing the Android experience that it might cause heads to spin. I have yet to meet a rugged, outdoor-focused handset that has a truly great camera and the X venture keeps that disappointing trend alive for now.
