"Goodbye Rumor Touch, hello Rumor Reflex"3.5 starson by Swoll3n
Pros: Faster core processor than Rumor Touch
More compatible with latest releases (Opera Mini)
Cons: Short battery life
Keyboard color scheme not very visible
Camera/video is sub-par
Summary: I went from the LG Rumor Touch to the Rumor Reflex. I definitely dig the increased performance of the hardware. The touchscreen is slightly improved. The 1st battery w/ the phone would die after 1 day of charging. Got a replacement battery and now it lasts 2.5 days. Coming from the Rumor Touch lasting 4-5 days of normal below average talk time, this was disappointing. The keypad on the Rumor Touch was way easier to see in all angles, but the Rumor Reflex did away with the nice keyboard color scheme and replaced it with silver keys and blue lights. You can still make everything out, holding it at the right angle, but is annoying. This is not a high-end Andriod-esque phone and shouldn't be confused as such. For the average user, who doesn't want to upgrade to Android data plans on Sprint, this phone is perfect. Plenty of apps/games to choose from. Opera Mini works great on this phone. Overall, if I could get the battery to stay charged for 3 days or so, I'd be happy. I just decreased the screen brightness and display options to minimize battery use. Will see if this prolongs battery life any more.
