Review: LG Lotus Elite

Form Basics Extras Video Wrap-Up Comments  

All things considered, the LG Lotus Elite isn't that much different from the original. Sure, the external display has been upgraded and includes a touch interface, but nearly 100% of the software is the same.

In the end, the Lotus eilte 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 Elite's form factor. The square-ish shape may or may not appeal to you. If it does, you'll find that the Lotus Elite packs in most features you might want or need. The QWERTY keyboard and able email program go a long way to making the Lotus Eilte a solid messaging device.

The newer social networking applications give a leg up on the original Lotus, but they do little more than provide limited access to Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. For the most capable social networking experience, you still have to adopt a smartphone.

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 browser works well and surfs WAP sites quickly.

If you were a fan of the original Lotus, there's no reason not to like the Lotus Elite. There's more to like about it, though that's not saying much in the drastically altered landscape of today's more capable smart devices.
