LG Rumor Touch review
Is It Your Type?
The LG Rumor Touch is a definite step up from the original LG Rumor, adding not only a touchscreen and a new interface, but a feature boost all around. The phone now has 3G networking, a 2 megapixel camera and more social networking support. But even these upgrades aren't enough to overcome some significant flaws. The Rumor Touch has all the messaging bases covered, so did the new touchscreen and enhanced features round out the package?

In two weeks, the LG G8 ThinQ will be offered by all major US carriers, with several offering major discounts at launch. This flagship phone from LG has a unique 3D depth camera on the front, supporting mid-air gestures, hand vein scanning, and 3D face scanning.
LG's V50 ThinQ is the first 5G phone for Sprint, and the first phone in the US to use 5G on low-frequency bands that provide broad coverage. LG took the V40 and somehow added both 5G and a larger battery, without making it any bigger.

Sprint today released new details of the 5G network it will launch this May and June. Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, and Kansas City will launch in May, while New York City, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Phoenix, and Houston will launch in June.
Verizon will launch its second phone with integrated 5G — the LG V50 ThinQ 5G — for all customers on June 20th. As with the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, Verizon isn't restricting sales to areas where 5G service is available, as Sprint has done.
