It covers the basics, but misses the mark in a few places.

We're a bit flabbergasted in LG's offering with the Sentio as it clearly doesn't showcase the true potential of what we've seen out of the Korean company. Out of the three handsets that LG is launching with T-Mobile, the Sentio is blatantly the most well rounded, but pales in comparison to rival options already available on T-Mobile's lineup. Although it may not exude some kind of flashy appearance, the Sentio's design is typical to the handful of other offerings out there and blends into the mix. However, it doesn't feel balanced enough in certain key areas to catapult it above the competition as other similar handsets are more polished around the corners. Despite not being equipped with some modern amenities, the LG Sentio can suffice as being an entry-level touchscreen handset with its $69.99 on-contract price point.

The Sentio offers exactly what I'd expect to get from a $70 touchscreen phone. It covers all the basics -- some better than others -- but does nothing particularly well.

The resistive touch display leads to a lot of simple problems when using the Sentio. That alone could be a deal-breaker for those who are easily frustrated and don't have a lot of time to spend navigating menus and backtracking. It also doesn't look very good, with ragged images and not enough brightness.

The phone and contact applications work well enough, but the actual phone performance is below par for most T-Mobile phones I've tested in recent memory. Call quality just isn't there. Using Bluetooth makes it much worse.
