LG Muziq review

RATING



6.6/10
Informr score
The LG Muziq currently has an Informr score of 6.6 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 48 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The "1-Minute" Review

The LG Muziq is a worthy follow-up to the LG Fusic. Made of better materials, it is also thinner, longer and wider. The Muziq is clearly a phone designed to be a competent music player. To that end, the Muziq sports external music controls with haptic feedback, allows for up to 4GB of external memory and supports stereo Bluetooth.

While the clamshell form factor is slim and attractive, it does create a problem when opened, as the volume rocker keys end up on the top left of the device, making them difficult to reach.

The Muziq sports a 2.25 inch 176 x 220 pixel LCD screen, a talk time rated at 4 hours, 17MB of built-in flash memory and an internal antenna.

Weighing in at only 3.14 ounces, the Muziq has a rich, shiny black finish, good sound quality for both talking and listening to music, and a worthy contender for folks looking for a phone that can do double-duty as a music player.

I bought this phone in 2008 from a friend at work and was the best phone I've ever owned. I had no need for an iPod, because the phone acted as my mp3 player. With headphones, or the speaker, the sound is pretty good and the speaker does get noticeably loud. I work as an overnight stocker at a retail store, and even amongst forklift noise and and the radio being played, co-workers could still hear my music at the other end of the building when the volume was turned up all the way. I believe this phone to be resilient, seeing as i had dropped it at one point and it healed itself within a few weeks. Of course it is a flip phone, which makes it great the fold over the collar of your shirt and listen to music, but not so good when you accidentally throw it down a flight of stairs (which is how I broke it). It also has a removable memory card, which is extremely handy. I never had a single tech problem with it though have seen complaints in the past. I am looking to buy another. I also LOVED the design of the phone. I am a singer and a music NUT, so I believe 100% that this phone is my perfect match. Less

I really like this phone. I work in construction and this phone has held up for about 5 months with no problems. It has really good quality sound and i really enjoy listening to music with it. Bring the charger though because i get about two hours of music on a full battery. all other features are good and easy to get to. It is slow loading the screens on music and the random play isnt the greatest tends to not be random if you start listening to the same song. Less

Excellent phone

I had it for 2 and a half year. It's even work after the complete cycle of a washer, but not the second time, it very very good.

Good phone for the most part, just not long life

i loved this phone when i got it in January 2009. i found that the battery didn't last the longest... but i am also a big apps and txt user so to me that contributes to it. i dropped it in a puddle and it survived after an overnight stay in a bag of rice and worked fine after. in july my outer screen went on me, but returned after about three weeks. and in the past three months i have had the charger burn out, and i had to replace the battery as well. i have gone through three car chargers in six weeks. now the outer screen is going on me. i am sad because i do like the phone, i get great reception with Virgin but sometimes the internet is not so great, but overall i love this phone, but now its turning into a cash cow...

I have had no problems with my LG Muziq phone and has been great. I have had it almost 2 yrs now and I can up grade if I want. But it has been such a great phone I am not sure I want an upgrade on my phone at this point. They are always coming out with something new anyways. I like the simplicity of the phone. There are plenty of great features on it. Hard to pass it up. I would recommend it to my friends. Great pictures, sound, etc..... Less

Nifty, but cheaply made.

I got this in Fall 2008, really cheap, as part of our phone refresh plan and the people at Sprint talked it up as the hot new phone... When it arrived, I did have to admit that it looked / felt cool (shiny black)... had a nice slick exterior with a handy outer screen, slim profile that fit easily into a shirt pocket. Buttons were nice and made texting easy, camera worked reasonably well. I never actually got around to using the music-player feature of this phone, as it just didn't offer anything my iPod couldn't do. My phone died after something like six to nine months; first the outer screen died, then the inner screen... then all the buttons stopped working. I switched to my sister's identical phone (she got a Muziq too but replaced it with a Palm Centro), and hers is dying now, too... maybe six months later, same problem with the screens. The phone might have more features than a Razr, but is built less solidly; flimsy plastic vs. Razr's metal. The frame itself begins to come loose, which invites detached connections, etc. which may be to blame for the phone's short lifecycle. At any rate, while this phone seemed pretty nifty, I've gotta say that its poor construction and the overall lack of added value in an MP3 phone that isn't a Blackberry/iPhone style make this a pretty mediocre phone, overall. For actual phone calls (yep, phones are still for phone calls), the earpiece and speakerphone are both tinny and weak. You're better off getting either a) a simpler and more durable phone for basic uses, or b) a REALLY nice phone like the iPhone or a Blackberry / Palm. The Muziq is sorta neat, but really crappy compared to other alternatives. Less

You can turn off the Carousel.

Just correcting what someone else said earlier, I think it will help a little.

Just correcting what someone else said earlier, I think it will help a little. You can turn off the carousel and turn it into a more traditional looking phone (it took me awhile to find it, but it's worth it). It makes the phone go way faster. - Go to your downloads (Should go right to it when you press the down button) - There will be options like ringtones, application manager, etc.. Go to the third from the bottom called Phone interface. - There will be two options, one is bell and one is muziq. Click muziq and it will get rid of the carousel. Other then that, the phone is absolutely horrible. I've had to get mine fixed and it doesn't do anything except get rid of your contacts, pictures and videos (Hasn't bell heard of a SIM card? Rogers has them!) My phone screen goes black when its open and lit up when its closed. It randomly turns off, is slow and the keyboard is currently caving in. The only good thing about it is the battery last forever. I MISS MY FUSIC :( Less

THis cell phone sooo horrible. I have to charge it constantly because the battery runs out like a bucket full of water filled with holes..Seriously i could have it charging for the whole night and day and when i go to use it i am out for a couple of hours and come back and the phone will have only ONE bar left of battery...At first i thought it was just me and that i did something to my phone but than my mom wanted to update her phone and so she got the same one as mine (i didn't tell her about the problem i was having with it because i dropped my last phone in some water and still worked so...) Yea so mom got the same one and it did the exact same thing to her so i came to the conclusion it was some faulty phone. Seriously DO NOT GET this phone, it runs out of battery so fast, sometimes the signal isn't very good and u could be standing right next to a cellphone tower!! BAD PHONE ALERT!! DO NOT GET!
