"The LG EnV offers an impressive feature set, an easy-to-use QWERTY keyboard, and decent call quality."
"The EnV's streaming video quality could be better, and the boxy design has its quirks. Also, its external display is small and not very useful."
"The design still isn't perfect, but the LG EnV is a high-quality messaging and multimedia cell phone."

LOVE THIS PHONE! GREAT COLORS, FULL SIZE QWERTY KEYBOARD FOR TEXTING,INSIDE SCREEN NICE SIZE & CLEAR, THE OUTER SCREEN ON PHONE IS RATHER SMALL (NOT TOO GOOD FOR PICTURE-TAKING)GREAT SPEAKERPHONE; THIS IS DEFINITELY A NICE STURDY PHONE WITH GREAT CLARITY! PHONE IS ON THE "CHUNKY" SIDE....BUT JUST RIGHT FOR ME....I DO NOT LIKE THE NEW PHONES THAT SO EASILY SLIP OUT OF YOUR PURSE, POCKETS OR HANDS.....THIS PHONE IS HARD TO LOSE AND EASIER TO LOCATE DOWN IN YOUR PURSE! LOVE IT! I HAVE 2 PHONES..THE BRIGHT ORANGE ONE I BOUGHT 8/08 FROM VERIZON, IT WORKED GREAT UNTIL 9/2010, THE (CHARGING PORT) BROKE AND I HAD TO GET A REPLACEMENT, BUT VERIZON SAID THE PHONES NO LONGER EXISTED! I REFUSED TO GET ANY PHONE BUT THIS ONE (DESPITE THE CHARGING PROBLEM)IF THE NEXT ONE LASTED ME AT LEAST 2 YEARS, I WOULD BE SATISFIED! SO I SEARCHED EBAY FOR A (BRAND NEW) ONE AND ENDED UP WITH THE EXACT SAME PHONE, GREEN, BRAND NEW.....AND IT'S WORKING GREAT! NOW I HAVE THE ORANGE PHONE'S BATTERY, AS A BACK-UP TO THE NEW GREEN ONE...AND I"M HAPPY! I WISH THE MANUFACTURE (LG)WOULD TAKE THE TIME TO FIND OUT ABOUT THE FAULTY CHARGING PORT AND MAKE AN UPDATED MODEL FOR 2011! THE CHARGING PORT SEEM TO BE THE MAIN PROBLEM WITH THIS PHONE, PER MANY OTHER VIEWERS! IT ALSO HAS A GREAT 2.0 MEGAPIXEL CAMERA WITH FLASH.....TAKES GREAT PICTURES TOO.!
This is a nice phone, as far as features go. Love the design. Nice camera with a flash. However, it does not have regular WIFI. You have to use Verizon mobile to get on the internet. Speaking of Verizon, if you try to use a prepaid service with this phone, be warned. You won't be able to activate the phone online. Then, when you call Verizon to activate it, they will try to sucker you into a $40 - $50 something monthly plan. If you choose not to take that and you bought a $15 or $25 prepaid card, they will activate it with $10 of the $15 or $25 and you will only be allowed to text sms messages (that do NOT have pictures or any kind of multimedia). Then you will be left with the remaining money from your prepaid card in your account to make calls, etc. You won't even be allowed to get on their mobile net, unless you have enough money in your account (whatever that amount is). I think Verizon prepaid plans suck and are waaaay to high, when compared to other prepaid companies. I bought 2 phones off of Ebay (pretty cheap). I activated one, with the method I mentioned. Since I don't like the "deal" I got, I decided not to activate the other phone. I've turned the other phone I bought into a camera instead. Good thing it has a camera with a flash, or it would be useless to me.
I upgraded to my enV VX9900 So far, I love it. I have to start by saying that this phone isn't for everyone. For instance, my parents are repulsed by the mere mention of a phone that does not flip open to make calls and consider the QWERTY keyboard a feature impossible to master. This phone is for the textaholic and nimble fingered.
you have to realize though that when you have a phone with two seperate screens, a 2.0 mega pixel camera and a QWERTY keyboard, you aren't going to be able to fit that in a small package. It is smaller than I imagined though and is smaller than T-Mobile's Sidekick 3 as well as the old V. I'm happy with the size.
The outside screen is noticeably small. When navigating the menu via the front screen the menu is cramped, showing only three lines of each menu, and doesn't have all of the features the inside screen has. To me this is okay because all I need this screen for is a quick look at the time/date, to text and make calls. You can take and view pictures, videos and listen to ringtones and music from the front screen. I was actually surprised at what you could do on this little screen.
The inside screen is really nice. It"s about the same size as the Razr's screen except sideways so you have more of a widescreen effect. The screen quality is crystal clear. Every picture or graphic looks crisp and clear. I have no complaints about the screen size. Get It Now is easy to navigate and the menus feel spacious and layed out.
When you open the screen, the hinges have to two stopping points. One is at a 90 degree angle which is good when you're sitting and if you keep pushing it lays flat which is useful when you're laying down.
I've had to have a camera on every phone I've ever had. Most of the time this is a disappointing feature which was only good to take and send self portraits to friends and prove that I was there (like a concert). To ask for a detailed photo would be a joke. Having had several camera phones I think I can say that this phone takes amazing pictures for a picture phone.
I only have a few songs on my MicroSD but so far I am impressed by the sound quality. The stereo speakers have a nice sound for a phone. Don't expect any bass or dynamic sounds though. When used with the headphones that come with the Music Essentials Kit is sounds like a high end MP3 player but is no iPod.
In looking for a phone to work with PagePlus Cellular, I wanted a full qwerty keyboard, an internet phone, one that would cost me about $40 (March 2011)...and one that was hackable with the help of our very helpful internet community. You are not going to get the thinest phone on the market, nor the fanciest as this phone has been around for a while....but for $40 to $60 this is a great buy if you are looking to have a phone that works with PagePlus -- if you are buying this phone for PagePlus - the web browser will not work until the default home page is changed from the built in Verizon homepage -- this task takes a bit of finesse but is completely duable -- if this is for your child and you don't want them to have internet access - then this is good news for you!
The body of the phone is stout - if you drop this thing it will take the hit. One the other hand, it's bit bulky to use as a handset...so I have a pair of stereo (phone mini jack) ear buds that work well and keep my hands on the steering wheel.
The keyboard is also sturdy and will take much abuse -- the keys take a little extra pressure but I'm finding them just right. I have smaller fingers but I think most finger sizes will like texting with this phone.
The internet browser screen is a little small, but is just fine for reading, looking at pictures, or googling addresses. I like the flip up screen that can be set back at a slight angle or back flat -- it feels tight and does not flop around at all. I have not figured out how to get all of the Verizon features to work with my PagePlus service but I'm happy with the voice, texting, and web.
The camera and video are average but if you don't have your camera or video recording device, this will do in a pinch. The sound (output) is great, has a decent speakerphone, and records pretty good as well.
I use the note feature along with the keyboard to jot down shopping lists etc.
The only dislike I have is the very flimsy internal board that receives the phone charger or usb cable. you can easily get the end of your charger chord upside down and try to push it in -- this results in bending the board a little bit -- I had to get a tiny flat head screw driver to bend the board back to center -- I've had enough phones over the years to know this was a crappy design....especially given the sturdiness of everything else.
But that said, the Lg VX9900 is still a great value for a several year old phone....This is a SUPER OPTION FOR PARENTS. Both the phone and pageplus card can get you or your kids going for a much better budget that you'll get with new phones and phone service contracts.
I will most likely look first at LG's before other brands in the future.
This phone is capable and easy to use. The front features could be better designed, though not surprising, the keyboard is large enough for quick texting. The front display is smaller than it has to be, a larger display would be considerably better. The camera is better than average and has some interesting options for pictures, like flash, self timer, color effects, 30 minutes of video much like a regular camera. Not as good as a smart phone for data and games. It's simple and fitting for some one looking for a phone that isn't a smart phone,
or before you build up enough to get the best of cell phones.
