Review: LG enV3
The enV3 shows evidence of a yet-to-be-launched apps store from Verizon Wireless. There's a link to it in the menu, but when it is launched, it says there are no apps available at this time. Perhaps Verizon will be adding apps to the apps store soon. Games can be downloaded via the MyMedia menu, where is also a new link called "Browse & Download." This takes you to a list of Verizon-specific applications and service, such as backup assistant, visual voicemail and others.
The enV3 supports mono and stereo Bluetooth. We had no issues pairing it with both standard and stereo Bluetooth headsets. Sound quality through both types was good. Using Bluetooth for stereo music playback did tend to suck the life out of the battery, though.
The one thing the exterior display does really well is show you the time. When the phone is locked, you have to hit the OK key to unlock it. Once unlocked, the phone displays the time prominently right in the middle of the screen, so it is easy to check the time.
The enV3 supports a-GPS and some location-based services. This includes Verizon's VZ Navigator application. It works well, and was able to provide us with directions from point A to point B with no problem.
