Review: LG enV2
The cons that have become glaring, some reviewed in the article.
-Accidental calls being made from my pocket. It unlocks the front pad and places calls. Major problem for me yesterday. The phone doesn't offer a suitable fix either.
-No autofocus in the camera. I don't understand the thinking here. This phone should be as advanced or more then the original. Yet my gf's enV has autofocus and mine doesn't. Weird. Lack of flash is mildly annoying as well.
-Exposure of the lense to potential damage. I'd like to have seen and greatly appreciated a camera lense cover like the original enV, but maybe more simple to maintain the flat bottom.
-Yesterday, I started to notice crackli...
Today, we got our shipments of the Glyde for next week. I compared them side by side, and bought the env2 in black. So far, I love it. The camera lens will not be an issue for me, as I use a belt pouch (yes, I am a geek).
More to come...
Only get this phone if you are going to get VCast which is basically unlimited internet usage without download charges. The Premium package is the best bang for the buck with any of these phone.
Another concern I have about the Glyde is unless you keep it in a case, count on cracking the screen at some point.
Don't get me wrong; I like Samsung, my other phone is an i-760 (told u I am a geek)
as for call quality, for me it has gotten substantially better with more use (i've had my enV2 for 9 days). i have no issues with the speakers either. if you continue to have those problems, you might want to exchange it. but as for all your other issues...i'd just get a case.
The camera lense cover would be nice. A raised chrome ring around it to deflect direct hits would be at least something, like my old LG VX8100 has. In two years of owning that, I smacked the chrome a few times, but it always deflected away the blow from the recessed lense.
But the sound quality is an issue here. I just called *611 for Verizon service. They think it's got a factory defect and want to send another phone, so I'm just going to exchange the unit. It's mainly the right speaker sounding funny, and when I put my hands free set on, the distortion goes away, so the customer service rep said tha...
I exchanged my handset yesterday for a new enV2 due to the speaker problem. While I was there, I got a Body Glove phone holder. It's padded and pretty stiff sided. It's all but eliminated the accidental calls, even without the security lock on. And with the env being so slim now, if I pull my tshirt over it, you can't even tell I'm wearing the phone on my hip. Very helpful.
