|The Bottom Line || Despite a few design issues, the LG Vu Plus is a full-featured messaging phone with the bonus of live mobile television. || The Sharp FX has plenty of multimedia features and additional services to occupy socialites and text-happy users, but mediocre call quality and some usability flaws keep it from fulfilling its complete potential. || The Pantech Link is an absolute steal with an excellent array of midrange features, a great slim design, and a wallet-friendly price. We wish only that it had better call quality. || The Samsung Impression isn't perfect, but it ranks high on our list as a messaging and multimedia phone. || Though we have a few quibbles with it, the Pantech Ease is overall a smart hybrid that will please both grandparents and grandchildren alike.
