"You can't beat the bang for the buck"4.5 starson by Zanynet
Pros: Bluetooth, customizable, nice camera, good price
Cons: Need data cable & software for use w/computer
Summary: My review of this phone after spending a couple of days with it... I really like it a lot. For reference, I switched from a SE T608 and I've only owned Sanyo phones before, so this is my first LG. The phone seems well made and durable. I like the smooth outside and how the OLED is hidden. It seems there's a nice clear plastic plate over the main screen and earpiece of the phone for protection.
I think the Main screen and OLED are great. Very clear and good size. I like the outer indicator light on the phone too. The menu's and software are a huge step up from what I was used to. It is quick and responsive, and it's easy to find and edit contacts and other stuff. The phone itself sounds very clear and I've had great reception in the NE New Jersey area.
The bluetooth seems pretty good. I'm able to use it with my handsfree link in my Acura TSX with no problem. It "pops" a bit as the phone links to the car, but then the sound is very clear. I haven't tried the BT as a modem, but it pairs easy to my iMac and by IBM laptop at work. I don't think BT file transfers are allowed except for vCards. I did transfer all of my contacts from outlook yo my phone via BT from my IBM without a hitch.
I like gadgets, so I'm really impressed by the m4a ringer capability of this phone. I have used the FOCUS tool to upload 30 second homemade ringers and they all sound great. I've also hand no problem with homemade 128x160 pixel screen savers, but haven't been able to transfer raw midi files. QCP works too, but you need special software to make ringers of that type.
The camera seems pretty good, but you do have to hold it steady. The camcorder isn't that great, but I don't use it that much. I'm not sure how to transfer pictures to a computer b/c I don't think you can do it by BT. The only thing I'm bummed about is I'd like to get a data cable and use bitpim if possible. I'm not sure that bitpim works with the LX350, but from a little research, this phone seems to be a similar platform to the 325. I may try and get a cable for the 325 and see if that works. There's no LX350 specific cable yet, but I'm going to call LG tech @ 1-800-793-8896 to ask.
In conclusion, I'd recommed this phone to anyone. As LG says, this is a mid-range phone with high-end features. You can't beat the bang for the buck, even if it's not as sexy as some of the thinner phones on the market. A+ for the LG350!
