Reporting in on 4500

by jkkline1    Jun 7, 2005, 9:36 PM

My 15 day trial is almost up and barring any unforeseen events in next 5 days, I am keeping this phone. Signed a new 2 yr contract, retired my moto T720. Actually liked the T720 well enough--to me the menus are more intuitive than LG (maybe bc I began with Startac) but had lots of dropped calls and crumby battery life.

I am NOT a heavy cell phone user. As far as I can see the 4500 fits the bill. It too drops calls in dead spots in NYC (just like my T720), tho it did manage to get around a corner that usually silenced my moto. It is slightly better receiving in my apartment. And, no question, its battery life is far longer than my Moto at the end of two years, probably ever. I have been carrying the travel charger with me for two days, waiting to see when the two bars would hit zero. They never did (I only made a few calls) which means, with low use, this phone has a one week standby time at least. Finally tonight, I decided to charge it (still at two bars) because I got tired of carrying the travel charger to work.

I can't say this phone is a looker (tho I do like the mirror on the front) and the screen is hard to see in the sunlight (which has finally arrived in NYC). Still audio is good, phone seems consistent. Ergonomics have a bit to be desired--you have to learn not to hit the side buttons. And your figures ache after editing an entire phone book, but that is a one time ache. All in all, I recommend it. And, the speaker is a v nice feature, especially when you are on hold with Verizon.

So for all those who can't stand the Moto 265 (big and ugly and bad rep and it scratches), I say, try adjusting your brain to the LG 4500.
