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.

Samsung today announced its lineup of flagship phones for 2022: the Galaxy S22 series. The top-end S22 Ultra sees the biggest changes as it essentially absorbs Samsung's Note series with an integrated S Pen stylus and a more Note-like shape and design, instead of the Contour Cut design of the other models.
Alongside its new foldable phones, Samsung has revealed its newest smartwatches and Bluetooth earbuds, each with significant engineering improvements. The new Galaxy Watch5 has a 13% larger battery and 60% more durable face compared to the Watch4.
A quick look at the Bold N1, an attempt to offer a flagship experience for just $250. Where else will you find a phone for that price with a true all-screen design, pop-up selfie camera, in-display fingerprint reader, and wireless charging?
This won't do
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?
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...
