LG EnV Touch is a phone that aims to messaging fanatics, as it comes with both a touch screen and a full QWERTY keyboard. Its communication capabilities include a great call quality, text and multimedia messaging, visual voice mail, instant messaging and email. You have three types of email: mobile email, mobile Web email and corporate email via RemoSync. You can view attachments in Word/ Excel/ Power Point/ PDF format files. As for typing a message, you have four possibilities: the virtual alphanumeric keypad in the portrait mode, the virtual QWERTY keyboard in the landscape mode, handwriting recognition or better, the physical QWERTY keyboard. The latter is spacious with well sized buttons that are raised above the surface. You have a larger than the other buttons space bar and the four keys highlighted in gray double as game controls. The numbers are placed on the very front row of the keypad, separated from the letters.
The 3 inches touch screen is, overall, responsive, but it is definitely on the smaller side. However, as a display, it delivers vibrant graphics and a crisp text. The touch screen comes with a built in accelerometer and you can adjust its sensitivity via the touch calibration wizard and you can add haptic or sound feedback. Once you flip open the EnV Touch you will find the four row QWERTY keyboard and the 3 inches internal display that has the same characteristics as the exterior screen.
This cell phone has basic features, such as: alarm clock, calendar, vibrate mode, conference call capability, world clock, calculator, stop watch, 1500 contact phone book, speakerphone and more.
