LG Rumor Touch

The PhoneDog
Mascot from Charleston, SC
Published: July 3, 2007

Pros

  • Well-designed, spacious physical keyboard
  • Notifications bar for messaging that is somewhat similar to what you would see on an Android device
  • The touchscreen and 3.5 mm headphone jack are features that the previous Rumors lacked
  • Excellent build quality

Cons

  • For a phone of this caliber, you would expect something better than a 2 MP camera with no flash
  • Though the user interface is interesting and fun, it may take some getting used to. (You may want to try it before you buy it to see if you like it or if it's too different for you.)

Summary

The Rumor line of phones have always been solid contenders in the messaging phone market. The Rumor Touch adds a few additional features and has very few downsides. Perfect for the "serious texter."
