Review: LG Voyager
The Voyager supports a number of Bluetooth profiles. It was easily paired with both stereo and mono headsets. Sound quality was decent through both, but the sound cut in and out a lot during music playback. Enough so to force us to halt stereo Bluetooth playback altogether because it was just too frustrating. Pairing with a PC was simple, and we were able to successfully send picture, music, video and other files back and forth with no issues.
The Voyager's calendar is based on previous versions of the Verizon calendar. Using it with the touch screen, though, is a far superior way to interact with the calendar than just the simple D-pad. You are able to enter in information and navigate the calendar much quicker with your finger.
You can adjust the appearance of the internal and external clocks, and choose from several different appearances. The digital version of the clock takes on the characteristics of whichever menu font you've chosen, so the look is consistent. This is a nice touch. The analog clock is a simple analog clock. They are prominent on both screens, and are easily seen at arms length.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G might as well be synonymous with 5G at the moment. Every major US carrier will offer it as one of their first 5G phones.
