The LG Rumor Reflex offers a great voice quality and a decent and responsive touchscreen. Being a feature friendly phone, it offers a lot to text enthusiasts, especially in the form of a full QWERTY slide out keyboard design. I found the overall design of the phone and it’s interface quite user friendly. The only few problems I ran into while I did the review was that the phone’s internal speakers are quite low and the camera is not impressive.
Design wise, the LG Rumor Reflex is lightweight and compact. The design is well suited to someone who uses the phone for texting. The keyboard makes the phone a tad bit thicker but that shouldn’t be much of a problem for a seasoned text enthusiast. The rear of the phone has a good ribbed texture that offers excellent grip and it doesn’t feel like a child’s toy.
The front is mostly occupied by the 3 inches touchscreen which offers a WQVGA resolution at 400×240 pixels. While not the best display out there, the LG Rumor Reflex display is pretty acceptable. The colors look fine and the brightness contrast ratio is well balanced. Most of the graphics especially with the background and videos appear to be slightly grainy, but this is something I was expecting from a budget friendly feature phone.
The main highlight of the LG Rumor Reflex is its QWERTY keyboard. I was impressed with the glowing dark blue color on the keys. The keys are well laid and all important keys such as the backspace and enter are well laid. The text application is great, however it only works properly if you are sending texts to someone who is using the same phone. So if you send one of the emoticons available on the messaging app, it won’t appear to those who do not have the same phone.
The LG Rumor Reflex is a decent and user friendly phone. However, I had trouble with its interface which looks a bit too crowded. This is a great phone if you are someone who texts a lot.
