Review: LG Chocolate 3
LG takes its Chocolate music phone in a whole new direction with the new Chocolate 3. See why it managed to stay on course and get lost at the same time. With video tour.
If you're a music maniac, but are looking for something less flashy than some of the other multimedia phones on the market, Chocolate from LG has always been a tasty option. It is sort of liking comparing a complicated dark chocolate to good old milk chocolate. The former may offer a more complex taste, but its not something you can eat every day. Similarly, the new Chocolate 3 may not have quite the rich appeal that previous Chocolates had, but its simplified use, stylish package and new flip form factor make it more appetizing for daily use.
This won't do
Going to a claimshell and removing touch screen is the wrong thing to do. Now it just looks like any other phone. If I want a slimmer phone I'll get a razor. What's so special about it now?
There are phones out there with touch screens and easy to type on keyboards that flip out. I was expecting chocolate to take the next leap to iphone type functionality. Instead it went backwards in terms of taking risks and pushing design.
Anyone else agree?
And what makes it different from the RAZR? It's not garbage! And I don't think it was a step backwards at all. The Chocolate was never more than a mid-range phone, LG is keeping it that way...
