The LG DoublePlay features a unique dual-screen design that is intended to make multi-tasking even easier. Does this system work? In this unboxing video, Sydney gets a first look at the DoublePlay and gives her first impressions of the device. With a 1 GHz processor, HSPA+ speeds on T-Mobile's network, and a 5-megapixel camera that can capture HD video, it's not a shabby phone, but is it worth considering given its odd form factor?

The dual-screen idea is not a new one. Sprint carries a phone with a similar design, the Kyocera Echo. The problem is, that phone didn't sell very well. Will the DoublePlay share the same fate or has LG found a way to incorporate this feature? Check back into PhoneDog for the full review to find out.

Terry Oakes kewl phone itd be nice if att had it
Mike West Only to the mob of people who hit "like". They'll be the ones standing in line at 2a before launch only to discover at 9a that the phone will go to those who pre ordered first.
Anonymous not appealing at all... but at least the face on the thumbnail link is, for a change. It doesnt make me want to punch my screen as much as the 'other' face.
Mark Fisher Jr. I still don't like that phone. It don't look like anybody would be using the keyboard on it that much.
Josue Cifuentes LG should stick making fridges and stoves
Ryan DeClue Need some Phonedog input, on the recent news that Huawei is supporting Iranian government with system to track all citizens at all times!
Rueben Alicea That's cool want a cookie
Jon Recinos Honestly, sort of. But it's LG and most people just don't want an LG phone.
Chris Arrington Yes and no
Aaron Cullen Starr You would of thought from the Sprint "Echo" that we wasn't ready for duel screen phones. Maybe with the right hardware and software it can happen. Maybe if HTC or Samsung do it to a tablet it might set a new bar
CeeGii Borels nooooo that Exhibit 2 4G for $200 has my full attention already
Alex Henderson No but I will to some
Gabriel Fernandez No. Not in the least bit.
Hunter Black surprisingly yes. i dunno whether it'd be the easiest to type on, but it looks pretty cool.
Melissa Cruz-Guzmán I don't really care for it, but to each their own. :/
