Touchscreen phones bundled with QWERTY keyboard have become quite common these days. Another new phone from LG that is added to this genre is the LG Xenon GR500. It measures 105.5 x 53.5 x 15.8 mm and weighs 108g. The phone is so compact that you won’t notice a bulge if you put in your pocket. The display of the phone measures 2.8 inches. The resistive touchscreen of the phone is capable of displaying 262k at a display resolution of 240 x 400 pixels. The response of the touchscreen is good. The display of the screen is viewable under direct sunlight if you set the brightness to the highest setting.

Below the display of LG Xenon, you can find three buttons namely Send, End and Menu button. You can control the volume of the phone by means of the volume controller located at the left side of the phone. The display lock is located at the right side of the phone. The camera launcher and the microSD card slot are located at the right side. You can make use of the microUSB port to charge and perform transfer. The 2 megapixel camera with LED flash and the speaker which is located next to it are present at the backside of the phone.

Sliding the display of LG Xenon from left to right gives you access to the 4-row QWERTY keyboard. The keys are little cramped and do not have enough spacing for comfortable typing. However, with practice even a person with large fingers will be able to type texts easily.

You can add up to six widgets on the homescreen.  At the bottom portion of the screen there are four icons: dialer, address book, messaging and main menu.
