This phone could have been an excellent basic phone, and a good competitor for the LG Exalt LTE, which lacks a front/external display. While the Exalt has a slightly larger display, it's way too long for some, and the DPI is slightly sharper in the Cadence. But the Cadence failed in the photo dept. A 2.0 megapixel camera? really? The Exalt has an 5.0 Mp and a 720p camcorder. This is a serious failure of the Cadence which may cost them.
