Editors Didn't Like

  • Keyboard is cramped, Phone is rather large and heavy, some might not like that, No flash
  • Mediocre reception. Stubborn touch screen. Dreadful UI. Awful Web browser. Third-party app development is dying
  • Struggles with multiple programs open, Need stylus in certain apps, Relatively small, occasionally unresponsive screen, No multitouch support
  • The LG Fathom's resistive touch-screen display is not as intuitive as we would like. We also noticed slight sluggishness with its accelerometer and image refresh rate. The LG Fathom's bulky exterior might not be for everyone
