LG Arena review

LG Arena review - In stock now at Cell2get both as an AT&T Cell phone and an Unlocked Cell Phone.

The LG Arena has a sleek, slim metallic body that fits perfectly in the palm of the hand. Overall the phone feels sturdy and well built. The dimensions are 105.9mm (L) x 55.3mm (W) x 11.95mm (T)and weighs in at 105 grams. With a 3 inch screen, although not huge, does the trick with crisp vibrant images. The touchscreen includes Haptic feedback for a "button press" feel when you touch it.

The built in features include a high resolution 5 Megapixel camera which is good enough for both posting photos online as well as printing, Video recording, GPS, MP3 player & FM Radio. It also includes the usual suspects such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi etc.
One of the more interesting features of this phone is if used in conjunction with AT&T it can be used to watch tv in broadcast quality.

Of particular note was the LG Arena's mobile browser which allows more than one window to be open at once. Anyone who surfs on their phone knows how useful a feature like that can be.
