Sprint Touch Cellular Electronics Phones

The LG Rumor Touch is a nice friendly text messaging phone with a slide out qwerty keyboard. It is the first touch screen phone on the LG Rumor line. The phone is 4.2 inches long, 2.2 inches wide, and 0.6 inches thick. It has a rectangular shape with curved edges. There is a nice back cover that feels good in the hand. It doesn't feel too heavy but it has a very firm grip. It has a 3-inch touch screen display. The images and text are very crisp. You can of course adjust the backlight and brightness which is always a nice feature. You can use a stylus or your finger to navigate through the touch screen. The only thing bad thing that is annoying is the touch screen is resistive so when you touch it doesn't feel like it should be touchscreen. I was very disappointed that. I would recommend using your fingers as the phone barely picked up the stylus. There are 3 physical buttons, the back button, home button, and the call button. The slide out qwerty keyboard is very easy to use. I had no problems getting used to it. It has 5 rows with the first row being a dedicated number row. It is very roomy and comfortable to text. I wasnt a big texter until I got this phone, texting is a breeze. The bad: The phone itself freezes from time to time if you're texting a lot, and the camera is only 2 mega pixels which could be better. The good: keyboard, call quality, sprint's service, call quality, reliability, and e-mail and basic web browsing is ok. Recommendation: I would recommend this to teens. It is very stylish and reliable and the price is excellent. Anyone who wants a messaging phone and doesn't want to bother with the Android phones.
