Another box (smaller than the CR-48, of course) showed up today, and it contained an LG Quantum. This will be just a quick few quick impressions of what’s it like to use a Windows Phone 7 device (specifically the Quantum itself), in the bullet points below.
- It’s a little heavy and bulky, and is a gallery of different plastics of different qualities. The Quantum is the lowest-end feeling handset in the WP7 line, and it shows (but it isn’t bad).
- Windows Phone 7 flies on the 1GHz Snapdragon processor.
- Slide-out keyboard is a little too large for comfortable use, and the FN/caps keys are oddly shaped and positioned.
- The 5 megapixel camera with 720 HD recording are both well-balanced in terms of colors, and shutter speed.
- The screen orientation doesn’t change when you open the keyboard. That is utter failure on LG’s and Microsoft’s part.
- I’m going to have to spend plenty of time with the Quantum and WP7 to fully understand its pros and cons.
And a gallery is below, for your viewing pleasure (you’re welcome, don’t mention it).
