LG Rumor Touch Review

LG Rumor Touch is new touchscreen cellphone by LG that was officially announced month ago at the CES.

As announced by U.S. carriers Sprint and Nextel, the device will be available in their stores already. The price chosen for the sale, through two-year contract with the selected company, is $79.99. For those unwilling to buy the phone through the Internet, however, will have to wait some more days: the arrival in stores of Rumor Touch, in fact, is scheduled for 4th of April.

As this phone is quite similar in its core to the regular LG Rumor, this release has touchscreen as well as the keypad instead of only the regular keypad that LG Rumor had.
The touchscreen is suprisingly clean and responsive as well. Watch short LG Rumor Touch review below:

This model is sadly available only in blue color as for now, The purple and red versions will be on sale on the second half of next month, probably by April 18.

  1. This phone sucks!!! I bought it and had to have a new one sent because after 2 months it started turning it self on and off! for no reason! no one even had to touch it! Talk about annoying at 3 am! And so customer service is really good, but now my new phone you have to take the battery out 2 or 3 times a day to restart it just so you can get text messages! I say dont waste your money on it!

  2. It’s a phone, it works… to take advantage of any of the worthwhile features would involve getting a dataplan… frankly, this phone isn’t worth that kind of monthly billage.

    My primary complaint, asside from the absolute lack of compatable apps involves the dial pad.
    The dial pad disappears if it’s not being used for more than 10 seconds, whether or not you’re in a call… Getting back to it actually requires MULTIPLE steps… and when you’re in a rush the touchscreen feels much less responsive. Imagine the frustration when dealing with automated systems..

    I have more complaints, just not the energy or time to list them all.

    It wouldn’t be terrible if they had dataplans specifically designed for phones as lame as this. I don’t need to pay 80+ a month for the ability to check my email, update facebook and surf the web on an outdated browser at crap speeds.
