Review: LG Revolution
The LG Revolution makes use of the stock Android 2.2 phone application, though again LG has given it its own look with a more colorful treatment. The software dialpad is enormous and responsive, and lets you easily jump to the call log, contacts, and groups via tabs along the top.
In-call features run the typical set: send to Bluetooth, speakerphone, mute, and merge calls.

The Revolution uses the stock contact application, as well. With access to myriad different contact databases, the Revolution can carry a virtual phone book around in your pocket. Each contact entry lists gobs of details, and makes calling or sending messages a cinch from any contact card. I like that you can easily switch from seeing a contact's information to your history with that contact (calls, emails, IM, SMS, etc.) and even their photos.
