Mobile Burn Goes Deep With The LG Ally [Video]


While the LG Ally’s arrival wasn’t met with the loudest of fanfare, Verizon and LG are both pretty excited about the launch of LG’s first Android phone in the United States. MobileBurn got a review unit of the phone and they went in-depth with the phone’s unique features to give us an idea of what you can expect out of the box.

On the widgets side, LG has done a lot of interesting things here. Much like HTC has already done with Sense, you get a nice collection of items alongside Android’s standard widget set such as a nice looking calendar, an alarm toggler, and an application called “Socialite” that allows you to view and update your Facebook and Twitter accounts.

What’s interesting here is how easy LG’s made it to turn their layer of customization off and view everything in stock Android fashion. Does this mid-range device appeal to some of you guys?

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Since when is this the first LG handset?

    “The first Android device from LG, the Ally is the perfect assembly of futuristic, stylish design and 3G Android power for customers looking to tackle life’s most challenging feats and everyday ventures.”

  3. @Jeremy first android smartphone in the us market

  4. I’m impressed. Hopefully, this will be a good sign that LG is back to making decent phones. I know the ENV2 and ENV3 were terrible. This phone looks pretty damn good though.

  5. Looks like a cool phone but its nothing amazing.

  6. Eh, with a larger screen and the snapdragon this would’ve been an ideal device. It’s a good introductory device though.

  7. This phone interests me because of LGs new widgets and the phones form factor. I love all the dedicated buttons on the phone but coming from a rooted Droid would be more of a step sideways . I’d love a week with it though :)

  8. I agree.. nothing amazing.. but it looks like a great option for your average user (like me). I’ll probably end up with the Incredible, but you never know – when I get to play with one of these, the nice LG keyboard might sway me a bit.

  9. Well it looks like the Launcher 2 plays rather nice on a phone like that, too bad the geniuses(sarcasm) at MOTO couldnt or wouldnt optimize launcher 2 for Droid 2.1, oh well maybe with FROYO the Droid will get some real love from MOTO.

  10. I think that it is very impressive for a mid-range Android phone. All Android phones should have the 6 buttons on the front and a camera button like this does.

    The only thing I would wish for is a bigger screen.

    No headphones in the box…

  11. I wonder how the battery life will be on the Ally? The Ally info states the battery at 1500mAH and the Incredible has a 1300mAH.

  12. @Jeremy – I believe I said first LG Android handset in the U.S. market. I’ve used several other LG Android devices for non-U.S. markets, so I’m very much aware that’s it’s not the very first LG Android smartphone.

  13. I have had my ally for 4 days now and I love it. So much at the touch of a button….only down side is battery life isn’t that great but over I give it a 10 :)
