Review: LG enV
As far as feature phones go (which are a dime a dozen), the enV performs many tasks well and several tasks poorly. The Verizon platform definitely gets in the way of certain features and functions of the phone. Still, for power media users interested in living the uber-geek lifestlye, this phone performs much better than many of the clamshells in Verizon's lineup. The large interior display makes many of these tasks such as browsing and messaging much easier and more enjoyable and the QWERTY keyboard goes a long way to help ease the input of text information. Though the calendar and music player stumble a bit and drag the phone down, the camera and messaging applications perform better than most. If you don't mind the bulkier profile compared to other phones, then perhaps the enV is for you.
