Review: LG Lotus
In the end, the Lotus is a mid-range device that offers no surprises. Most phones in its price range have a similar feature set. What stands out the most is the Lotus's form factor. The square-ish shape may or may not appeal to you. If it does, you'll find that the Lotus packs in most features you might want or need. The QWERTY keyboard and able email program go a long way to making the Lotus a solid messaging device.
The camera and video recorder do a very good job at capturing both still and moving images. The music player is run-of-the-mill. The revised browser works well and surfs WAP sites quickly.
So, if you think it's hip to be square, get yer Lotus on.
