Review: LG Revolution

Form Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  4  

Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

The LG Revolution doesn't stray too far from the beaten Android messaging path. It offers the same core functions found on most Android devices.

The stock email, Gmail, SMS, Google Talk, voice dialer, and voicemail applications are representin'. I was unable to find any differences between what the Revolution's version of these apps offer when compared to any other Android device.

The instant messaging crowd will be happy to know that there is a generic IM app incuded out of the box. This means you can interact with your Yahoo, AIM, and Windows Live messaging buds.

On the social networking front, both Facebook and Twitter are pre-loaded, as is a catch-all contact/messaging widget for the home screen. Rather than add Twitter or Facebook feeds to this widget, you add contacts. The widget then parses those contacts for social networking status updates, and floats them into the widget. Essentially, it allows you to create a group of people whose Facebook and Twitter updates and activities you can access quickly from the home screen. It's an interesting take on the social feed idea.
