LG Cosmos 2 is a compact messaging phone which comes with some improvements if we compare it to its predecessor. We are talking about a 3.5mm headset jack, the access to social networking sites as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter and a music player. But the design and its other features are almost the same.
We have to tell you that it has the same dimensions, measuring about 4.41 inches long by 2.06 inches wide by 0.63 inch deep, as well as a similar compact candy bar look. In terms of technical features, we can talk about a 2-inch color display, with 262,000-color support and a 320×240-pixel resolution, not quite what we are looking for. Its 1.3-megapixel camera doesn’t have anything to surprise us, just some settings including three different resolutions, color effects, night mode, brightness, a self-timer, noise reduction, three shutter sounds, a silent option and white balance presets.
Its phonebook has a limited capacity of only 1000 entries, including the features that we are used to: Caller groups, Multiple numbers per contact, Ring ID, Picture ID, or Search by both first and last name; and you can choose between 27 different sounds for ringtones or message tones. As for the connectivity, this phone provides the basic elements that we are used to, among we can mention: Bluetooth (Version: 2.1), EDR, USB (Type: microUSB; Version: USB 2.0) and 3.5mm headphones connector; but there’s no 3G or Wi-Fi.
A set of basic features is included: a speakerphone, a to-do list, an alarm clock, a calendar, a calculator, a tip calculator, a stopwatch, a world clock, a notepad, not t o mention the Music Player which supports the following formats: MP3, AAC, AAC+ and WMA or some preinstalled Java apps like City ID, Daily Scoop, V Cast Tones, Bing, Mobile IM, Uno, Tetris, Mobile E-mail, or Backup Assistant. LG Cosmos 2 is the perfect choice as long as you don’t have high expectations, a well-built entry-level messaging phone available for free, as long as you sign for the usual two-year contract.
