Pros Vibrant colors on main/outer display, easy to navigate menu, sleek look
Cons Finger prints left on the front and back of the phone, accessories can be expensive
Summary This is my 3rd LG phone while having Sprint's service and they have out done themselves again. I wanted a very slim phone with many features but didn’t want to be like everyone else and get the Razr. I have only had the phone for a day but the reception is good, sound quality (on out going and incoming calls) is better than average on most phones, and it’s very easy to navigate when choosing a menu option.
The speakerphone is nice although it takes a while to register after selecting this feature. The stereo headset adapter is a great choice and it is included in the box.
I would definitely recommend this phone to anyone looking for a reliable phone, mp3 player, text messaging, and every day use.
"Too Fragile."on by jipper72
Pros A sleek design.
Cons Key pad is ugly.
Summary The texting took some getting used to, but once you got past that it was actually easier to get a meswsage typed up. Very fragile, loved this phone until I dropped it on the floor. Lost all service, sent for repair and got back to me 3 weeks later saying that it could not be repaired. If you buy this phone, you better cradle it! Not impressed at all.
Pros Music transmitter, exceptional picture quality, flash,music player music composer
Cons not so good speaker phone
Summary I love this phone. i can listen to music for 3 hours and still be able to talk on it for about 2 hours all in the same charge. very shiny. i like how big the buttons are. it makes easier for faster texting. i didnt really like lg before but they've really stepped up their game the past few years. i also like how its music controls on the front vibrate. you can compose your own melodies and i believe set them as ringtones or whatever.
music player in headphones get pretty loud
normal black white sepia and negative camera settings.
can take pictures up to 980x1230? megapixels
(1.3 mp camera)
its 3g compatible
and it has stereo bluetooth
the bad things are:
some people have said its hard to hear me but i swear im talking at an exceptional volume. but maybe its just me.
when you put someone on speaker it doesnt get quiet and it doesnt get louder.
it only vibrates once if you set it on text voice mail etc. so if you have it in your pocket you better feel it the first time
No equalizer for music player
no fun frames for camera.
i really like this phone and i'd recommend it to anyone who wants a music phone or just an all around great phone
Pros Good looking phone with a 4GB USB HD for music via bluetooth.
Cons FM transmitter does not work at all. Voice dialing is a too complex.
Summary I had a cheap, simple Samsung clamshell that had great call quality and voice dialing features. And, it was a tri-mode that worked great even in the Caribbean.
When I decided to upgrade, I was sold the Muziq at $99 for it's music player with bluetooth and FM transmitter, voice dialing and camera.
The camera does not shoot in dim rooms- no useable flash, just a white led light that has about a 4 inch range (Sprint tech service said this is 'normal').
The voice dialing is a four step process- hold the button for 2 seconds, then say 'Call', then say '(person's) Name', then say 'Home (or Cell, Office, etc.), then wait another 2 seconds for the phone to verify the call, and then finally say 'Yes' before it dials. (Unless it goes to the wrong person, then you must say 'No' and start all over). My old phone you simply pressed 'Talk', said the person's name and it would connect you.
The FM transmitter claims a 10-13 ft range in the specifications, but recommends 5 ft or less. Try much less- more like touch the phone to the car radio. Even on my home stereo, I had to put the phone to within 2 inches of the antenna. Again, per Sprint tech service, this is 'normal'.
I did purchase a bluetooth stereo headset and a 4GB card (not through Sprint). This feature does work, and I can load up my music via the USB cable with a simple drag and drop of files. Shuffle mode only, though.
Overall, this phone advertises way more than it delivers. It does surprise me that the official reviews fail to mention these major flaws.
Pros Decent sound, stylish, plays music, easy to use
Cons Poor speakerphone, not-intuitive, limited mp3 functions, slightly larger then most phones in the style, can't assign your own music as ringtones
Summary I really like my muziq in general. With the right accessories (large micro card, microphone/headphoes, adapter) you can listen to music, easily switch to incoming or outgoing phone calls, and the sound quality for calls and headphones music is really good, all things considered.
There are a few somewhat minor things I don't like. I would rather be able to set my own voice assignment to each number (b/c what I type in and what is easiest to say are different), I haven't found a way to stream the music to a bluetooth yet, it seems I can't link my own songs for individual ringtones (Which seems kind of weak to me, since its a MUSIC phone), and the mp3 player in terms of random/song organization/etc. is pretty set in stone. Also, when folded out, the musiq is a little bit larger then the sonya katana (although identical in dimensions when closed), and the keys are slightly less convenient. However, the katana doesn't offer mp3 player capabilities (to my knowledge).
All things considered, this is a good phone and a decent mp3 player for those who want to combine them. It's not quite as user friendly as I would like, but it does deliver. I was able to access my gmail account from it also. I've only had it a week, so we'll see how it holds up. If it can last a good year or so, w. changes and other tweaks, I'll be pretty happy.
