LG Chocolate Phone

Most beautiful. Or is this the case with the LG Chocolate BL40, the last, largest and most powerful addition to the company’s Black Series LG Label. Following in the footsteps of the original chocolate, shoes, and then the secret, LG Chocolate BL40 is the fourth member of the family (BL40 = Black Label Series 4), as well as with its predecessors, the design is at the forefront of this phone.


Before we admire the beauty of chocolate, let’s focus on the obvious – the length of the phone itself. Similar something stretched Ipod Nano, or if you were willing to take the brutal swipe, remote control, chocolate measures 128mm in length. Our immediate thought that it was too long, but after a walk with him in our pocket, we are pleased to announce that there is no discomfort. There is in fact the reason for this lankiness, and it is to host a live four-inch, 21:9 HD LCD screen. Advantages screen this size are apparent; widescreen video, fuller experience of browsing the web, but we have no complaints, most of which later.

A good appearance is what we are accustomed to the Black Series LG’s labels, as well as polished black chocolate’s chassis, red top and bottom and silver metallic finish, this phone is no exception. The color scheme complement each other, and capacitive sparkles TFT display with 16 million colors and 345×800 pixels enormous. Bar selection of keys are located on the side of the phone, chocolate governed exclusively touch screen. This happened a little Getting to use as a screen has enough space for at least a couple of keys and hard, as such, our thumbs were immediately drawn there. Back key, at least would improve the usability of the phone, rather than relying on screen virtual button.

Built on a familiar company LG S-class user interface, chocolate sports four home screens, which can be displayed as standard or as a 3D-cube. Each page is customizable and is divided; Widgets, contacts, browser, and shortcuts. Browser home particular favorite of ours. Choose the most visited Web sites, and a sketch that the site will sit on the main page, providing quick and easy access to the site by simply clicking her fingers.

Internet experience

In fact, it is connected to the Internet experience shows that the LG Chocolate is really comes into its own and again, that is a big display, which takes the applause. Phone is equipped with accelerometers, which make all the content in a horizontal view. This also applies to the menu screen that allows you to view all the icons in one, and not in portrait mode, where you will glide between them. However, it also provides the ability to display Web pages in full without scrolling left to right to read all the contents. This means much more mobile Web sites have become more friendly as the content can be displayed at any time. Scroll up and down the page, we found that a Web page sometimes takes a few seconds to himself to catch up, but the phone feels great, when in both hands, similar to PSP.

Realization of Multi-Touch procedure similar to that in the iPhone, and place the forefinger on the screen and slowly pull them apart to increase or vice versa, to decrease. Unfortunately, this is more than we say it does not work as smoothly as the creation of Apple, as we often find themselves unintentional scrolling of the page, rather than zooming in. Click on the screen and your browser menu will appear. They consist of the address bar, options, text search, update key and the icon, which allows you to open more than one page. With super-fast data access speed HSDPA, Wi-Fi is an added bonus and a cinch to set up. To access it, press on the reception icon in the upper left corner of the screen, which activates a drop-down list of leading to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a label for the music player. It’s a little strange that nothing is said of this menu list up, but take our word for it that it is.

Dual Screen

Turn the phone horizontally in the text or e-mail mode and LG, will reward you with a spacious QWERTY keyboard, that we could Bang in a number of messages no time. However, what really makes messaging a unique object is a double screen. Widescreen is divided into two parts, with the message list on the left side of the screen, allowing you to read each of them right. This saves you having to dredge through the whole list of opening messages, not knowing exactly what it is one you are after.

Video experience

As touched, LG Chocolate is perfect for video playback. Watch a movie in widescreen chocolate was a joy and gives as close to the cinematic experience as you will probably get a mobile phone. Click on the screen during video playback and a lot of pictures will appear at the bottom of the screen. This will allow you to switch scenes, as if you were watching the actual DVD. With video on its forte is little surprise to find that it is compatible with DivX, XviD and MP4 formats, which makes this chocolate visual experience. There is also a great demand has rarely rewarded 3,5 mm headset port, which enables you to connect your own set of cans. In combination with Dolby Mobile sound and chocolate is easy to both ears and eyes.

So taken, we have video and audio experience of chocolate, which we started to connect wirelessly whole content of our review sample. Although the pairing process Cinch learn, we were a little disappointed in the length of time it took for us to transfer files. For example, sending three or video clip a half minutes until chocolate has taken about 15 minutes, and MP3 similar length remains longer than five minutes. Other small vices we had, that for such a powerful multimedia phone, 1.1GB of internal memory a bit stingy. Phone really does support memory cards up to 32 GB, although you have to buy a card of any capacity separately.

Camera power

Camera wise, and LG Chocolate BL40 ticks all the boxes without having to worry more dedicated camera phones, such as Samsung Pixon12 or even his own company LG Viewty Smart. With five-megapixel camera, Schneider-Kreuznach optics and LED flash hardware is all there, along with some additional features whimsical. Smile Shot and Beauty Mode (extinguish any spot your question may be), we have seen earlier, both of which worked flawlessly on chocolate. However, Stitch shot was new to us. Fast acquisition-line photos, Stitch Shot differs from the continuous shooting mode (which is also present), because it combines all the images in one image file.

While there is a separate camera key and volume keys can be used as a function of scale – how to find the right side of the phone – the camera can be controlled solely via a touch screen, with different settings on both sides of the screen. It makes us somewhat puzzled as we believe that chocolate could make the biggest screen that makes these virtual icons visible only when needed, thus freeing the rest of the display. One of these icons on the right side of the display allows you to quickly alternate between even and camcorder. As with camera camera does the job, leaving us dumbfounded. It was a shame to find there was not a slow or fast motion settings that are contained in the previous phones LG, but at the same time, it was a piece of cake to download videos directly to YouTube.

In terms of navigation LG Chocolate BL40 is top notch. With the onboard A-GPS, we have achieved almost instantaneously correct satellite, which has remained strong and consistent. All the faithful Google Maps also present although with more and more phones, including the excellent functionality Street View was ashamed to see it deleted from the chocolate. If you want a little more, you can do most of the 28-day free trial WisePilot, which provides both voice guidance and 3D maps.


LG Chocolate BL40, of course, get people talking. Its unusual design both eye catching and pragmatic. The film experience was particularly pleasant to the Internet have also benefited from the widescreen. However, because of the huge size of the screen, we also found accidentally pressed tremors were more frequent than we would have liked. It looks great and is a worthy addition to the series of Black Label, but a few usability issues left us a little irritated.

It outlines all the major aspects of the new LG Chocolate, including a unique selling point of a widescreen display.

Widescreen works with a resolution of 800 * 345, which is the proportion that all Hollywood movies filmed in.

LG Chocolate and 3G + (HSPA), which allows download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps. So when DNLA technology, which enables seamless synchronization with other devices DNLA, which many TVs and laptops now have.

For all the gamers there mobile experience “shock” of technology, so you feel every blow on your favorite game Racing.

LG Chocolate has a great browser with full support for Facebook.

It is striking that the LG Chocolate allows “dual screen” technology can be used, so you can have Facebook on the side of the screen, and your music player on the other side.

LG Chocolate will be available in the UK since September 22

Information About Nextel

However my advice to you is that if you really want to join the Nextel network then you should buy a phone from them as it stands right now; you tend to save a lot more on calls using their copyrighted feature called direct connect.

But the bottom line is that it is your choice as to what you want to do because the phone will work once the SIM is switched but the direct connect feature will not work at all because the software/hardware isn’t installed on your phone.

Here is some general information for you. A SIM card is a universally designed card. By that I mean that it has one design that makes it universal in that it can fit into any SIM card slot on any phone. In theory; if it fits, it should work right?? Wrong.

The thing is that Networks often lock their phones onto their network. So lets say you buy a phone from AT&T, then that phone will be locked to their network. In the same way if you purchase a phone from Nextel then that phone will be locked unto Nextel prepaid network.

So as you can imagine, it’s the phones that are locked unto their respected networks. Thus if you were to buy a AT&T phone and try putting in a Nextel SIM then it won’ t be able to log unto the Nextel network, because the phone will be locked to the AT&T network. Understanding now Celeste?

The only way a phone will be able to work on multiple networks is if you purchased a phone that is not locked. To do this you have to buy a phone from an independent dealer and not from one of the networks themselves. In that way the phone will not be locked to any network and as such it will be able to log onto any available network for which the SIM is programmed for.

In the same way if you have more than one phone that is locked unto the same network such as Nextel, then you can change the SIM cards between them and they would work just as fine because they are all connected to the same network.
