Review: LG Quantum
The LG Quantum supports Microsoft Exchange natively, as well as POP3/IMAP4 email, SMS/MMS. If you're in the mood for some IM action, you'll need to look for it in the Windows Phone Marketplace.
The email program is very, very good. As with many email systems, all users need to do is enter their log-in credentials and Windows Phone 7 takes care of the rest. Users can adjust the sync settings, and after the initial download, email flows in. The inbox is broken into several side-by-side panes, including All, Unread, and Urgent.
The settings are available at the bottom of the screen. There are a number of icons there, which allow users to start new emails, perform batch delete/file actions, sort messages into folders, and refresh their inbox. It all makes sense and works well. WP7 and the Quantum support multiple email accounts.
The SMS/MMS application, which is one of the core tiles on the device, offers threaded conversations. Text appears in colored bubbles in a way that will be familiar to most people. Images appear in-line with the conversation. It is a cinch to sort through entire conversations, delete whole threads, and keep your conversations organized.
