    Non “Smart” phone, for no-nonsense people, June 1, 2014

    This review is from: LG Xpression C395 Unlocked GSM Slider Cell Phone with Touchscreen + Full QWERTY Keyboard – Red (Wireless Phone Accessory)
    After owning an iPhone, and deciding life would be simpler and cheaper without one, I went back to a pure talking-texting phone.

    The LG Xpression is simple and functional.

    I do NOT have skinny/pointy fingers, so the pullout keyboard was a must. I HATED the iPhone’s touchscreen keyboard!!! iPhone letters are too small and I would always end up pushing a letter I didn’t want to push. The Xpression’s keyboard is a godsend for my clumsy fingers and I never have an issue texting.

    The touchscreen works fine (not as fast as an iPhone, but it really doesn’t need to be), the phonebook and calendar functions allow for plenty of data and reminders, and the phone calls themselves are clear.

    You can download music and games, but I never used those functions on an iPhone, so I wouldn’t use it on this phone anyway.

    There are only two downsides to this phone.
    1. Size: The Xpression is compact, but the keyboard makes it a little thick (granted it still fits in a pocket easy enough). It just isn’t as “thin” as an iPhone or droid.
    2. Poor Camera: The on-board camera is obviously not close to the latest and greatest; however, I carry around a full-time camera (DSLR or Sony Cybershot) anyway, so for me, it is not an issue.

    If you find yourself not using the “Smart” applications of your “Smart” phone, or just want something cheap and simple, the LG Xpression is a nice alternative that keeps your eyes where they should be… looking up at the world.

    Nice way to break your phone addiction, August 30, 2014

    This is a great phone for talking and texting. If you are looking for a way to break the addiction to apps and other phone stuff than this is a great place to start with some caveats.
    PROS:
    – Small and easy to put in your pocket or bag
    – Nice responsive touch screen and keyboard
    – Calendar, dashboard, notepad and clock/alarm widgets on the home screen for easy access
    – It has a camera and a micro SD slot
    – Maps and GPS navigation work well

    CONS:
    – No custom ringtones, you have to use what is on the phone
    – Rarely and randomly pocket dials because the lock button on the top makes it too easy to unlock the phone
    – AT&T App Store is on the phone but you can’t use it (closing November 2014) = no apps
    – Not too many choices for alarm sounds (but there are a couple that are not too unpleasant)
    – email and web are pretty much useless (but can be accessed in emergency if you are patient)

    Overall I would get this phone if you are trying to break your phone addiction, or just want a simple talk and text device with basic camera work and GPS/map navigation. Some of the more advanced features (apps, music, videos, etc.) will likely not work too well with the close of the AT&T App Store.

    FINAL NOTE: If you are looking for a NO DATA plan be advised that you can’t buy those plans through AT&T anymore. Their “No Data” plan is a 300MB plan (since all phones, even this one, use a small amount of data for things like maps and web browsing).

    My daughter loves this phone and best of all she now has a keyboard for her texting and doesn’t need one of those over priced smart phones that require a $35 data plan. The phone came in the original box sealed and was brand new. Very pleased with this purchase! In fact I just now bought another one for my wife she like our daughters so much.
