Review: LG Glimmer
If you're looking for a classy Saturday night phone that knows how to look good and works well, the Glimmer is it. Not only does it look and feel good, the touch screen, keypad combo means you you're not sacrificing functionality for form. The menu system makes good use of the touch screen to ease usability.
The multimeda aspects aren't the best we've ever seen, but they do a passable job at taking photos and playing music. The music player software itself outperforms the audio quality, but that's okay. The browser software is comparable to that offered by other phones in the same class of devices.
In all, there's not too much to take away from the Glimmer's sparkle.
