Favorite Phone thus Far

 

Apr 3, 2005 by MisterWong

I love using this phone, especially the QWERTY board. However, not every text input field can use the QWERTY! This is super annoying, almost as much as typing an UNDERSCORE. Sometimes you'd have to close the slide, press *, open the slide, and then navigate through the grid of symbols to the _ or ' or any number of common symbols not found on the QWERTY. I do not have the problem many others have of it coming open in my pocket. At least it fits in my pocket, unlike many other unwieldy QWERTY phones. I'd say my favorite part is quickly sending email to and from the device. I did not have to pay anything for the phone when I signed up for a 2 year contract with cingular. I used to use an LG VX3100L from Verizon, so the F9100 seems like a Ferrari compared to my old phone. Overall I am very pleased with the phone and it's capabilities. Why no camera?!? is my only gripe.

Not Bad

Start with cons
When talking to others the voice of other person echos only on their end.
Solution is to turn down your volume

Cannot to my knowledge have ringtones for individuals

Battrey life is somewhat short

Pros
Good design as far as phone size

doesnt feel cheap

works great for text

Outside lcd appears to be of high quality

Great little IM phone for 100 bucks

 

Feb 16, 2005 by Spawne32

I just picked this phone up the day it was released, we swtiched from tmobile to cingular and i was looking for something with a qwerty keyboard. I love the design of the phone, not only does it make a great cell phone for talking, the keyboard isn't awkward to use, and hides nicely with the slide out design. It also gets great reception with the internal antenna which i was surprised to see.

PROS

*Innovative slide design
*Decent screen brightness and resolution
*Nice QWERTY keypad, firm and responsive
*Friendly menu system
*Loud ringer
*Great price of 100 dollars from cingular, 150 in store with 50 dollar mail in rebate

CONS

*Poor slide clasp (frequently slides open in pocket)
*Limited use of screen (for menu function) with slide open
*Only stores up to 30 Screen names for instant messenging
*Not very customizable, no option to change font size, face, or color.

As IXOCEAN said in his review "I was very excited to be among the first to use this phone, but quickly grew tired of the slide coming open at random and the 'cheap and dated' look of the screen. One has to wonder why, with such a capable screen, LG continues to use the equivalent of Courier font style for the soft-key indicators on the standby screen. The limitations of the screen while the slide is open also makes one ponder the reason for this shortcoming. Clearly it is a software deal and could be addressed with a revision" and i agree totally. But for 100 dollars im really pleased, with the improvements everyone here has mentioned i would gladly pay up to 200 for a improved version of this phone.
