LG Rumor Touch Review – Affordable Touch Screen Phone with Side-Sliding QWERTY Keyboard

LG introduces the new phone in the Rumor family for Sprint – the LG Rumor Touch. It is a very good looking phone and it really feels good to hold this phone. The phone measures 107 x 56 x 15 mm and weighs 133g. The outer construction of the phone is made up of durable material. It has got a 3 inch resistive touchscreen and has a color depth of 262k with a display resolution of 240 x 400 pixels.

Below the display, you can find three buttons namely, Back, Home and Phone. On the right side of the LG Rumor Touch, you can find the power and display lock key, 3.5mm audio headset jack and microSD slot. On the left side of the phone, you can find the volume controller and camera launcher button. At the bottom you can find the microUSB slot that can be used for data transfer as well as for charging the phone. The rear of the phone is beautifully designed with touch material and pattern. Here you can find the 2 megapixel camera and speaker.

The LG Rumor Touch has a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard. To use it, you need to slide the screen and you will be use the 5 row QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard buttons are small and are made up of hard plastic which means you will not be able to type easily on this phone.

The user interface of the Rumor Touch has been reworked slightly as compared to the previous Rumor phones. It has got a new Hello UI for managing your contacts. Another new feature is the appearance of bubble whenever you get a missed call, text message or email. Rumor Touch also allows the user to make use of various social networking apps such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Sprint Social Zone, Photobucket, Zangia, Asian Avenue, and many more.

The music player of Rumor Touch lets you access Sprint Music Store and the media player lets you access 50 television channels and on-demand programs through the Sprint TV app. Images snapped by means of the 2 megapixel camera appeared to be grainy in dim light and even in bright light the colors did not have much depth. You can record videos at 13 fps on this phone.

The Access NetFront browser available on the phone lacks many features so we advise you to make use of Opera Mini on the LG Rumor Touch. You can browse the web at 3G speeds; however the phone lacks Wi-Fi. The other features of the phone include GPS and Bluetooth. The Li-Ion polymer battery gives a talk time of 420 hours. The first Rumor had performance issues, the Rumor 2 ad resolved most of the issues that was there on the predecessor phonebut the latest Rumor Touch is the most well developed phone of them all.
