Review: LG Fusic
The Fusic is quite a phone - it grabs your attention with its good looks and keeps it with solid performance. It seems to hit a sweet spot between cost, size and features. (Gary Fisher, a famous mountain bike builder, had a motto "strong, light, cheap - pick any two" on his bikes. Phone manufacturers use a trinity of small, features, cheap.)
The cute white body and small size make the Fusic look very friendly. And even though the Bluetooth and a few other advanced features are not exactly discoverable by novices, the common features used by most people are friendly too. Not only are they easy to find and to use, but they work well. This is a great choice for people who want to dabble in new technology without being overwhelmed by the complexity of a smartphone.
We can appreciates LG's effort and the inclusion of cutting edge technology like A2DP and an FM transmitter, but the Fusic is still not the music phone that Sony Ericsson's Walkman lineup is. Despite the inclusion of not one, but two, music players the Fusic still isn't a great choice for those looking for an iPod alternative in their phone. However for playing a few tracks while on the bus or walking to work, it is a perfectly good option.
