LG Fanthom VS750 Review

Ready for some not-so-exciting review? The boys at PhoneArena have just wraped up their LG Fanthom VS750 review and have given it a failry high score (8/10) even thought I think that it doesn’t deserve it. The LG Fanthom VS750 is going to be one of the last Windows Mobile 6.X device ever and doesn’t bring ANYTHING new to the table. The screen resitive, the design is horrible and the OS is as good as dead (and there’s no custome UI at all) etc. So why would anybody buy this device?

You’ve heard of the saying “timing is everything”, and in the case of the LG Fathom VS750, timing is against it. Windows Mobile smartphones are no longer the only game in town, as we now have Android and webOS. Furthermore, Windows Phone 7 devices are on the horizon, so die-hard WinMo fans are waiting to see what that will bring. At this point, we can only see someone buying the LG Fathom VS750 if they absolutely must have a Windows Mobile device right now that has a QWERTY keyboard and also includes global roaming capabilities.

With that said, the LG Fathom VS750 is a pretty well-rounded smartphone by itself. Our only real concerns with the device are its resistive screen and poor call quality.

Hummm…ok. I’ll wait for the LG Panther thanks..
