"Doesn't work as well as the 4500"3.0 starson by bruce_g
Pros: Easy to use, decent functionality, analog capable
Cons: Poor battery life, small buttons, mediocre sound, reception/transmission not great
Summary: My wife and I used this phone for a week with an LG 4500, including side-by-side tests of sound and reception. We like that it is smaller than the 4500 and that it has an analog mode. Analog mode with Verizon is not very useful though, as their network is almost entirely digital. We like that it is not cluttered up with a camera, games and a lot of other crap that we don't find useful. It comes with a standard small travel charger, unlike the bulky charge stand that comes with the 4500.
Sound quality is not as good as the 4500, and it sounds a little "tinny," both receiving and tranmitting. Transmission fades a little more quickly and severely. The keypad is a little smaller, and I find it harder to use than the 4500. The speakerphone is not as clear. It has no external display. Battery life is comparable to the 4500, which isn't great. A heavy-duty battery is an available option. The menu structure is almost identical to the 4500, except that the 3200 does not have "Get It Now" capabilities.
At the end of the week, we traded in the LG 3200 for a second LG 4500.
