Review: LG Chocolate BL40 v Olive FRVRON V – G2300

For some strange reason, both the top and the bottom ends are painted in bright fluorescent red with chrome highlights. The side panels are also highlighted with a chrome beading running across the length with ridged (speedbreaker-like) keys for camera shutter and volume control on the right and dedicated music key on the left. The left panel also has the mini USB port with a very decent hinged lid for charging and connectivity.

Presented as the world's first full-cinematic screen mobile with styling and multimedia features like FM radio with RDS, FM transmitter, D ivX/XviD support, Dolby mobile,TV out, the new Chocolate BL40 will not only overwhelm movie buffs, but also appeal to the fashionistas who relish looking at their phones when not flaunting it.

The capacitive touch screen of `Chocolate BL40' is a lot more responsive than its predecessors with minimal `lag'. One can gently swipe through the new fine-tuned spinning cube menu intuitively. Taking advantage of the real wide display, the dual screen UI (user interface) splits the screen into two and shows the email subject and content in one simultaneous view.

The GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)phonehas a plethora of features: GPS receiver (A-GPS HSDPA) and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP for ease of connectivity , etc. Its MRP is Rs35,000.
