Review: LG Lotus
In the end, the Lotus is a mid-range device that offers no surprises. Most phones in its price range have a similar feature set. What stands out the most is the Lotus's form factor. The square-ish shape may or may not appeal to you. If it does, you'll find that the Lotus packs in most features you might want or need. The QWERTY keyboard and able email program go a long way to making the Lotus a solid messaging device.
The camera and video recorder do a very good job at capturing both still and moving images. The music player is run-of-the-mill. The revised browser works well and surfs WAP sites quickly.
So, if you think it's hip to be square, get yer Lotus on.

Our report from the fall CTIA trade show in San Francisco. Hands-on with the latest from HTC, Samsung, Velocity, BlackBerry, LG, Kyocera, PCD, and Motorola.
Motorola describes the new Edge as their one premium phone for the US for 2021, (besides whatever RAZR they may or may not introduce.) It's not a flagship, but it's well above the usual affordable fare that Motorola has primarily focused on in recent years. It has a fast-refresh display and a whopping 108 megapixel main camera.
The Key2 LE shares the same basic size, shape, and appearance of the pricier Key2, but downshifts materials and components to make it less costly. If you're a keyboard die-hard, the Key2 LE is an intriguing and affordable option thanks to the solid Android platform and productivity-boosting software from BlackBerry.
Sony's new phones for 2019 have an unusual display aspect ratio that makes them unusually tall. The Xperia 1 and 10 Plus are a normal width, but much taller than other phones, thanks to extra-tall displays plus a "forehead".
Samsung just announced the Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra. The specs are impressive, but what else should you know about these super-phones?
