LG takes its Chocolate music phone in a whole new direction with the new Chocolate 3. See why it managed to stay on course and get lost at the same time. With video tour.

If you're a music maniac, but are looking for something less flashy than some of the other multimedia phones on the market, Chocolate from LG has always been a tasty option. It is sort of liking comparing a complicated dark chocolate to good old milk chocolate. The former may offer a more complex taste, but its not something you can eat every day. Similarly, the new Chocolate 3 may not have quite the rich appeal that previous Chocolates had, but its simplified use, stylish package and new flip form factor make it more appetizing for daily use.

This won't do

I was one of the first people to buy the original chocolate. There was something about it that just felt ahead of the curve. The interface, the touch screen, the music management and playback. It was all fairly new in the phone market.

Going to a claimshell and removing touch screen is the wrong thing to do. Now it just looks like any other phone. If I want a slimmer phone I'll get a razor. What's so special about it now?

There are phones out there with touch screens and easy to type on keyboards that flip out. I was expecting chocolate to take the next leap to iphone type functionality. Instead it went backwards in terms of taking risks and pushing design.

Anyone else agree?
I see your point, but I actually like it. Regardless of what LG says, I still look at the Chocolate3 as the latest rendition of the 8600 as opposed to the sliders.
I would say they probably didn't revolutionize anything because of the Dare release. That is a much higher end phone. They probably put the money into that.
I have the C3 and I think it is a very good flip phone. I personally cannot stand sliders and wouldn't have bought the C3 if it was a slider. The overall execution of the C3 is much better than either the C1 and C2 as well. The keypad is better, bo...
Neither the 8500 nor 8550 have touch screens for one. 🤨
And what makes it different from the RAZR? It's not garbage! And I don't think it was a step backwards at all. The Chocolate was never more than a mid-range phone, LG is keeping it that way...
