Review: LG Glimmer
The Glimmer's Blueooth worked well. We were able to pair with both regular and stereo headsets with no problem. Sound quality through both was decent, but not stellar. Connecting to a PC was just as simple, but sending files proved troublesome. Neither the PC nor the phone wanted to place nicely together. Attempts at sending files generated error messages and took time to push through.
We love the Glimmer's clock. You can choose between analog, small digital and large digital readouts. Any of the clocks are readable from an arm's length. With the phone locked, pressing the hold key will turn the screen on so you can check the time. What's really awesome about the clock is that once it is placed on the home screen, you can grab it and drag it to any location on the home screen. This lets you move it to a spot that doesn't obscure your wallpaper or anything else.
