I recently bit the bullet and decided to replace my broken down unlocked Motorola SLVR with a new and more updated phone. Now because I am not very tech savvy and really don’t use my phone that often, I didn’t really look for features, rather I decided to buy one that had qualities most women look for when buying new things- I bought one that I thought was pretty (lol). Yep, my sleek new $319.00 (before tax) phone is none other than the LG Shine- the red one y’all. This phone is so cute. It is a slider phone that has the basis stuff phones have camera, video, mp3 player- but most of all ladies- are you sitting down? This baby has a mesmerizing 2.2 wide mirror LCD- that means when idle you can check your make-up with this cute little thingy because it turns into a mirror. This feature alone sold me on the phone.
Sadly (you didn’t think was going to be a happy story did you), someone should have told me that you don’t buy a phone because it’s pretty. My LG Shine is a clunker. Not in the sense that it is a crappy phone- it’s quite snazzy actually- my problem with the phone is the joystick in the middle. It’s quite sharp and actually hurts my thumb. Because of that, I am not so happy with my new fancy phone and wish I hadn’t made such an impulsive buy. Yes the phone is pretty and outfitted with a lot of sweet extras, but like I said- I rarely if ever actually use my phone. As a matter of fact, I use my phone so infrequently that I often forget the number when I have to give it out.
Btw, I am writing this post at 4:28am because I couldn’t sleep. I just finished texting on this lousy phone and was so disgusted that I got up and came online looking for something else. That’s when I came across the pink iPhone and the gold LG 310/320. Both of these phones are made for women and the LG actually has a number of female applications – shopping list, fragrance type and a calorie consumption meter.
When I saw these phones I felt a bit better about my impulse buy because it showed me that other women clearly think as I do or else phones and other gadgets wouldn’t be made specifically for us. Granted, a pink phone is a bit much and somewhat “kiddy” looking- but a gold phone with a calorie consumption meter is fa damn sho worth trying out (LOL).
