LG AX-300 review

6.8/10 AVG.
RATING



6.8/10
Informr score
The LG AX-300 currently has an Informr score of 6.8 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 4 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

LG shows some form factor flair with its AX-300, a blue and silver two-tone flip with a slight hourglass look.

Similar to the AX-275, the LG 300 does have a larger display, adds color to its external display, Bluetooth and speaker-independent voice dialing.

With LG making so many innovative, touch screen devices these days, it great to see that on their simpler models they still offer up a feature set that is both useful and welcomed.

Inside you will find the navigation array set above the numeric keypad and surrounded by the familiar ‘send’, ‘end’ and ‘clear’ keys, and two soft keys flanking the top left and right.

The AX-300 provides a rated 3.3 hours of talk time and 7.5 days of standby time, and the main display has a modest 176 x 220 pixel resolution. And if you are really popular you’ll be happy to know it comes with a 1,000 phone book capacity.

Good phone from a great company. If you would like quality but simple flip, LG’s AX-300 does “simple” much better than some of its competitors.

Pro: the only good about this phone is that it is small and light weight and it can store a lot of pictures and sounds and it is durable. Con: you cannot record sounds and turn them into ring tones and the camera quality is the absolute worst and if you text a lot like me it will type a whole new different letter than what you wanted and if you are typing sometimes and you get a message at the same time it will shut off. Using experience: 2 years i would not recommend this phone to anybody that has a very social life and uses their phone a lot or anybody that wants a phone with good camera quality. i would recommend this phone to someone that just wants a phone for emergencies though.

Pro: The call quality is good, which is all I want a phone to be for the most part. text messaging is easy as well. The camera is good, I like the design with it being a flip phone. Now I like a phone being a little fatter, but I fixed that with buying a clear cover for it, so I couldn't be happier with that now. I haven't used the voice dialing, but can't wait to do that today. The speakerphone is good. It feels solid too, not junky or flimsy, so you feel like it's gonna stay in good shape Con: The only thing that's frustrating is that the clear button is right below the bottom arrow button, so it clears you out of the current screen you're using if you hit it instead of the down arrow button, but a fix is they give the option to use keypad numbers to select what you can with the arrows, if you get used to that you should be good, but trust me it's not enough to get you to not want the phone, but the only problem. Using experience: 7 days This phone just came out, I had it for over a week now and I like it, very good phone... Less

bluetooth

i was happy about having blue tooth then when i went to use the songs that were sent to me i found out that i can not use them. so i have music sitting in my phone for no reason. the phone is very easy to use tho so i am pretty happy with it over all.
