LG EnV2 is a messaging device that comes with dual displays and a full QWERTY keyboard. The communication capabilities include a great call quality, text and multimedia messaging, instant messaging and mobile Web email. On the front of the phone you have the small 1.45 inches LCD display that shows you: the date, the time, the battery life, the signal strength and the photo caller ID. Because this exterior screen supports 262.000 colors, it means that you can use it a camera viewfinder. Also, you can access certain applications without opening the phone. The navigation array and the alphanumeric keypad are both situated on a flat surface, but the fact that they have large buttons and offer a nice feedback results in easy and fast typing. We appreciate the dedicated music button in the navigation array, which allows you to activate the music player, again, without opening the phone.
Once you flip open EnV2 you will find the main 2.4 inches LCD display that delivers colorful images, a crisp text and the full QWERTY keyboard. The latter consists of four rows with decent sized buttons that are well spaced between each other. The numbers are placed on the very front row of the keyboard and the four buttons that are highlighted in gray are the game controls. One thing that we definitely disapprove is the fact that this keypad does not have a large space bar in the middle of it; instead, you have two space bar buttons placed on the left and on right side of the keyboard.
EnV2 has basic features, like: alarm clock, world clock, notepad, voice recorder, 1000 contact phone book, calendar, calculator, conference call capability and so on. The advanced users will appreciate the presence of GPS (VZ Navigator), stereo Bluetooth, voice commands, text to speech, wireless Web browser and Ev- Do network.
As for fun, you have a few games, a music player and a 2 megapixels camera that has editing options, 10x digital zoom and video recording capabilities. The picture quality is mediocre: the images look unfocused, even if the colors look bright. The phone is compatible with V Cast services: Music and Video.
