Review: LG Incite
The Incite from LG is a mixed bag. It has some solid features, such as the camera and browsing speeds, but also has a lot of quirks. It is clear that LG is testing the water with this device. It has a lot more work to do to integrate its menus with that of Windows Mobile and make them more usable. The touch integration could be a lot better. Where the LG stuff is perfectly fine for touch, the WinMo software is not. The lack of an on-board stylus makes the Windows Mobile UI all the more difficult to use.
Where the Incite excels at connectivity and messaging, it only rates "satisfactory" at things such as music playback, video capture and call quality.
I'd chalk the Incite up to a nice experiment from LG, but would wait until the company takes another shot before jumping on the LG smartphone bandwagon. LG still has a bit of a growth curve to surmount.
