LG Dare

One of the most interesting fallouts of the Apple iPhone launch is the ever-growing trend of touch-screen phones. LG was one of the first manufacturers of this bunch with phones such as the LG Voyager and the LG Vu dazzling us with features that we couldn’t get on the iPhone, such as live mobile TV.Particularly with the hardware, LG Dare seems determined to differentiate itself from its iPhone competition, with helpful tactile feedback while typing, great handwriting recognition, video recording (in slow-mo, if you’d like) and even editing, and the beefed-up photo taking capabilities that a 3.2 megapixel camera and built-in flash provide. The basics aren’t too bad either, with a sturdy and bright screen, peppy EV-DO Rev A., expandable memory and an excellent 3.5mm headphone jack.

In short the LG Dare has an intuitive touch-screen interface, an advanced 3.2-megapixel camera, a full HTML browser, EV-DO Rev. A, and plenty of other powerful features. It also has excellent call quality.However, all is not sweet. The LG Dare’s touch interface has a slight learning curve. The smaller size of the Dare also results in a smaller space for the 3-inch-wide display. Though we were fine with it for most applications, but it deters us from enjoying the full HTML browser, since we have to do more scrolling than usual.
