Review: LG enV3
As far as the hardware is concerned, the enV3 is a near-home-run. The size, weight, and form factor are all great, and the enV3 has excellent build quality. Perhaps the only foible we can really complain about is the 2.5mm headset jack and placement of the camera lens.
This means if you're a fan of the enV series of devices and are looking for an upgrade, the enV3 is worth it for the bigger external display, better external nav controls and compact QWERTY keyboard.
Where the enV3 fails is the software. True, it does introduce a smattering of new features sprinkled throughout, but there are no real leaps in usability here.

What's worse, the enV3 - a dedicated messaging device - doesn't include any sort of native access to social networks such as MySpace, Facebook or Twitter.
In the end, if you're looking for a device that has powerful SMS, MMS, email and IM capabilities with a few other nice features tossed in, the enV3 is for you. If you're looking for better integration with applications and mobile social networking, perhaps its time to step up to a smart(er) phone.
