LG Fathom Review

(VS750) Score: 6.1/10
VERIZON WIRELESS CELL PHONE LG FATHOM VS750 SMART PHONE NO CONTRACT REQUIRED IN ORIGINAL BOX WORKS ON VERIZON WIRELESS OR PAGE PLUS NETWORK ONLY COLOR BLUE

LG Fathom is a fair quality Windows Mobile Professional phone released back in the year 2010, coming with a 3.2 megapixels back side camera, a powerful processing unit speeding at 1 GHz and a 3.2 inches resistive display. But it's time to get into much more details.

LG didn't put much effort to reduce weight in this 5.36 ounces cellphone, much heavier than other similar cellphones. Whereas this cellphone has 4.53" long and 2.2" wide, it only comes with a much smaller 3.2" display. The LG Fathom is quite thick for today's standards, being as thick as 0.65".

LG decided to power the LG Fathom using a Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 QSD8650 chip, including a great performance 1000 megahertz processor with just 256 MB of RAM memory. Collaborating with graphic intensive games and applications, this phone also uses an Adreno 200 graphics processing unit working at 128 megahertz.

This device is only equipped with a 3.2 MP back camera. The LG Fathom also captures VGA 640x480 videos at 20 fps.

This cellphone is equipped with a very good 3.2" screen with a 800 x 480 resolution, providing this cellphone with a nice image quality. Its screen uses TFT resistive technology, but it can't detect multi touch gestures.

This cellphone provides Wi-Fi connectivity (but it can't be provided to other devices around, acting as a wireless router or modem) and fast 3G data connection, over HSDPA, UMTS, EV-DO A and EDGE technologies. The LG Fathom works with a SIM card to connect to GSM networks and it can use both GSM and CDMA.

This phone also includes some useful features such as Bluetooth (2.1, EDR) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and a couple sensors likeLight Sensor and Proximity Sensor.

This phone uses a medium capacity 1500 mAh Li-Polymer replaceable battery providing the LG Fathom with an amazing battery duration. LG reports a talk time of 7 hs and a stand by time of 475 hs for this cellphone.

This cellphone is being sold for around 200 dollars, which is a really high price for this type of phone. When buying this cellphone you also receive VZAccess Manager CD (including User Guide), RF Brochure, Global Support Kit, SIM Card (pre-installed), Australia, International Plug Adapters (Europe, Stylus, Wall/USB Charger, Product Safety & Warranty Guide, and UK) and Quick Reference Guide.
