Review: LG Chocolate 3
There are two menu systems on the C3, one for the exterior display and one for the internal display.
The menu system for the external display is truncated to just the multimedia aspects of the phone, meaning the music player, the camera, your gallery, and it also throws in your calendar and messaging inbox. For what it is, this exterior menu is nearly perfect. You use the scroll wheel to zoom around to the option you want, hit the center select button and away you go. The music menu is the most extensive of these five options, but they each give you just enough tools to scroll through your images, easily take pictures, access playlists and check your inbox and calendar items. Whatever you have open on the exterior display aurtomatically comes up when you open the phone up.
The menu system for the interior display is your basic Verizon Wireless menu. It has a standard grid view when first opened, but once you click on any of the icons, it switches to the tabbed menu we've seen from Verizon for years on end. You can shuffle sideways from tab to tab, each of which has a numbered list below it.
It doesn't take too, too many clicks to get to what you want, but it isn't super speedy, either. We're impatiently awaiting for Verizon Wireless to update this menu.
