Review: LG Dare
LG's Dare is its best touch-screen phone yet, but it's not perfect. See what shines, and what fizzles.

For the finger touch crowd that fancies the Verizon network, the Dare from LG is fun, functional and fully loaded with features. It's compact and does nearly everything you could ask of a multimedia phone.

Gotta say I was not impress with the phone.
It never sync well with my mp3s. Some would have album art some wouldn't. Music organization wasn't very good either. I like to have at least 100 songs with me. I was not able to create a play list nor get out of album mode. The worst thing is having to scroll through hundreds of songs to get the one you like.
As for the full htlm browser, that's a lie. I barely can see any of my websites on it. I talk to tech support and verizon said if the site is not "mobile web" friendly it most likely not even show up.
Also the touch navigation wasn't that all smooth. Mostly I ended up clicking when i was trying to scroll or clicking...
Sounds - Music
1. Organize the sounds and Music lists alphabetically?
2. Make Sounds into Ring-tones? (As in moving items from the Sounds folder to the Ring-tones folder.)
Thanks for any advice!
therefore never losing it. 😕 😛
Is the navigation software the same one on the enV? Is it better or worse than the enV?
Does the music syncing software (or any other software the phone requires) run on macs?
You should just purchase a micro sd card w/ a sd reader and that is the easiest way ive tranferred files to my phone from my mac
QWERTY keyboard video?
Have had this phone for a week...
I have utilized almost every feature/ability this phone has to offer, and I must say, this is easily the best phone I have ever carried from Verizon.
My only gripe, it is taking a little longer to get used to on the full keypad for texting. I find myself using "word" on the keypad in it's upright mode instead of the full keypad in landscape about 80% of my messages.
BTW, nice review!!!
a friend of mine has this phone
the shutter button is tricky but other than thats its an all around good phone
