Review: LG Chocolate 3
The Chocolate 3 is an easier phone to use on a day to day basis than the Chocolate 1 or 2. The clamshell form factor alone contributes a lot to this. Also giving a lending hand is the nicely proportioned keypad and D-pad nav controls. The scroll wheel on the outside of the phone may not be perfect, but it is more responsive than other scroll wheels we've tested.
Unfortunately, the music player doesn't live up to the billing of this phone. It just isn't as intuitive to use as it should be, nor does it make what should be simple tasks — such as loading your music — a breeze. We do have to give LG kudos for at least including a 3.5mm headset jack this time around.
The C3's other failings are more Verizon Wireless's fault than LGs. If you like the standard Verizon menus, you'll feel right at home, but if you're like me, you may find them outdated and irritating.
