LG WinMo 6.1 NFC Payments Katana LX  

The LX is the newest addition to Sanyo's Katana line of thin phones. It's not as feature-rich as some of its siblings, but makes up for it with really slick styling.

The outer cover of the LX has a sleek design with a mirrored front covering a "hidden" external display that completely disappears when not lit. The mirrored material and look of the display are almost exactly like that on the Sony Ericsson Z750. There's some kind of internal reflection going on that gives it a 3D "ghost" effect. We're not sure if it's intentional, but it sure looks cool.

Like all Katanas, the LX is quite thin. Because it's more rounded, though, it feels much thinner than previous Katanas. It's very pocket-friendly.

Moving inside, the main display is nice and large, although not very high-resolution. The d-pad and surrounding keys are small and oddly situated. They did work reliably for us in a brief test, but those with larger hands should be sure to test it out first. The number keys had no such issues, though; they were a pleasure to use.

As with Sanyo's new PRO walkie-talkie models, Sanyo is using a standard microUSB connector now. A standard 2.5mm headset jack is also present.
