With AT&T's Mobile TV service, I took a long look at this phone for mobile commuters who want plenty of entertainment without the smartphone complexity.

It looks more in line to being an upgraded version of the LG Xenon

from PhoneArena

By far the biggest eyesore going for the LG Vu Plus is its bloated $149.99 on-contract price which brings it into the upper echelon of the spectrum and is a bit much for a feature phone. Usually, at that level, consumers begin to check out other options that are more fitting – like smar...More

By far the biggest eyesore going for the LG Vu Plus is its bloated $149.99 on-contract price which brings it into the upper echelon of the spectrum and is a bit much for a feature phone. Usually, at that level, consumers begin to check out other options that are more fitting – like smartphones. Not only that, but it doesn't innovate in a broad range of categories where a “Plus” model should. In fact, its design might be the biggest change over previous LG touchscreen phones for AT&T, but opting to stick with the same interface found on the long forgotten LG Vu is one major drawback. However, there are some bright points worth noting – like its 3-megapixel shooter, calling quality, and QWERTY. In the end, it's going to take a serious amount of persuasion to swallow its higher than expected price point.

The LG Vu Plus is more trouble than it's worth. The touchscreen caused lots of problems during my test. It was quite unfriendly to my touch. The interface does nothing to help this issue. The widgets on the homescreen were nearly useless, and the deeper menus were arranged counterintuitively. There was nothing I liked about the user experience on this phone, from the lock screen through the home screens and deeper into the menus.

AT&T's Mobile TV is certainly a shining moment, but the video quality was not good enough that I'd ditch a portable media player or better, pre-recorded video options. The channel lineup is okay, especially if you're a sports fan or you like catching up on Letterman and other late night hosts, but it still doesn't make for a compelling feature; not enough to make me want to buy this phone.
