The LG Versa is an attractive touch-screen handset with an animated user interface, plus it has options for additional modules. The Versa also has a full HTML browser with Flash Lite support, EV-DO, GPS, a 2.0-megapixel camera, and a music player. It comes with a QWERTY keyboard module, which doubles as a case.
The LG Versa suffers from a poor Web-browsing experience, and the screen can be sometimes unresponsive in certain applications. There is no Wi-Fi, and Visual Voice Mail has a monthly cost.
If you can live with the clunky Web browser, the LG Versa is a very good touch-screen phone with the added versatility of optional modules.

The LG VX9600 Versa is LG's answer to its successful Dare feature phone for Verizon Wireless. The Versa builds upon the Dare's successes by adding the ability to attach extra hardware modules that provide new functionality, like the included QWERTY keyboard module and the optional game pad module( Michael Orly). "The Versa is versatile. This phone is fantastic for touchscreen fans"
This phone has all the great features of the Dare plus better scrolling capabilities and an optional detachable keyboard that also serves as a protective cover.
It functions nicely on the web, with its full HTML browser. It has good search functionality, and you can manage cookies, cache,bookmark s and send links. Not too shabby for a feature phone. Bottom line, the Versa exceeded my expectations.

The design is chic, attractive, and easy to-follow. I had a phone like this one before and it lasted awhile. The touch screen is somewhat durable; it's survived a few falls and it doesn't scratch very easily. Although somewhat difficult to text on due to the touch screen, an attachable keyboard is offered for easier use. The lock screen and main menu pages are customizable, as are many other things on the phone, such as the font, font size, and menu format. I love how you can set up the shortcuts and applications on this phone so that you can access them quickly.
The phone has a 2.0M camera with a flash. Although the overall quailty of pictures and videos is good, the photos are sometimes blurry. The calls on this phone come in clearly, and I've only lost one a call on my LG versa. If you desire, you can add a contact or write a text message while you're talking on the phone. Also, a drawing pad, EZtip calculator, regular calculator, calendar, alarm clock, stopwatch, and notepad are among the many apps that come for free with this phone.
I would recommend this phone to experienced users who are comfortable with touch screen phones. Customers seeking a phone that they can personalize will also be suited with the Versa
I switched from a Voyager Titanium, which I had for two years and absolutely loved, to the Versa on my upgrade. Initially, when I got my Voyager, it was between that and the Dare. I was leary about full touch and no physical QWERTY. The Dare was also shotty in the OS department. This phone is a ten-fold upgrade from the Dare. Granted the camera is less MP versus the Dare, but everything else is better. No quirks on this phone, the operating system is smooth. Many people dislike the fact that you can't change the look of the User Interface, but I say "big deal". This is a physically gorgeous phone with superb interface that runs perfectly. The call quality is exceptional and it pulls service well, even in areas on the fringe of service (I travel to them often). I was amazed how easily I can text on the virtual QWERTY, even with my thick mits. The battery life is solid, but if you don't charge your phone once every two or three days, you have issues anyway. Browser is solid, no great Flash support, though. You can do Youtube well, but Hulu isn't happening. V-Cast videos look stunning, everything from classic Star Trek to Dora the Explorer played well and was crisp and clear. Loaded a bunch of music onto an 8GB card, the music player is cool, but speaker is mono (hence the singular "speaker"), still plays loud and clear. Runs VZ Navigator solid and was fluid with real-time. Looked at getting the keyboard or maybe the gamepad attachments, but I wasn't overly impressed with those. Overall, though, I've been a huge fan of LG, as I switched from Nokia (grudgingly) a few years ago. Never looked back. This phone is excellent! Want a beautiful touch screen phone with no mandatory data? Get on this, before they disappear, as it is a discontinued model. Believe me, it runs much smoother than the highly touted Chocolate Touch.
This phone is awesome!!!! It's not just a phone, it's like a mini computer. Crystal clear reception. Takes great photos and video. Lots of internal memory for storing photos, video, contacts, whatever you want. The screen is much bigger that I thought. Not a bit of trouble seeing it when using the VZ Navigator or any other app. That was a major problem with my old LG Decoy. The keybord makes a great addition and comes in very handy. I've got big fingers and texting with the touch screen was a major problem until I started using the keyboard. Now its a breeze. Great phone! I love it!
Phone is very nice and well made. However the removal of the backing (for battery and Qwerty keyboard assembly) is somewhat difficult. You have to have nails or something thin to remove it.
Yet the features of the phone are very good. The phone has the ability to do many things in a well laid out format. The design is not bulky yet not small, it's just the right size for a phone. I recommend the phone for anyone who likes to play games, access the net, stream video or any other type of internet access.
And with the Qwerty Keyboard assembly, the phone becomes the ultimate texting device as well as a perfect protection cover for your phone... 4.25 stars.
