What happens when a company that's been in the industry for 50 years sets out to create a device as modern as a high-end cell phone? In this case, the answer is the LG Decoy. Is it just a "me-too" phone trailing in the wake of Apple's phenomenal iPhone, or does it stand on its own as an awesome example of cellular technology? Keep reading to find out.
For LG, there's little doubt that life is indeed good. Forging the industry since 1958 as Goldstar, LG now has over 75 subsidiaries worldwide designing, manufacturing and marketing advanced electronics primarily to very savvy users. Through the owning of Zenith and a partnership with Philips Electronics (LG.Phillips Displays/LP Displays), LG has already received much acclaim and an immediate global validity in a variety of electronic markets. These include media products, major household appliances and advanced telecommunications devices to date.
In seeing cellular phones undergoing vast changes in makeup, storage, functionality and design over the past couple of years, LG has placed research and development ideals into making a smarter, better cellular phone. After all, long past are the days of strictly making analog phone calls, as smarter, more tech savvy customers are demanding advanced functionality such as video streaming, cameras, music players, removable media, email, GPS and Bluetooth, while all at the same time demanding low prices.
So it wasn't really surprising to find that LG had entered this bleeding-edge cell phone market, with the release of its new LG Decoy cellular phone. Most likely spawned by the unbelievable success of the Apple iPhone, an entirely new line of devices are ready to hit the market, picking up where Apple left off. In fact, I am so impressed with LG over the last couple years that I am almost ready to question my undying loyalty to Sony. Almost.
One of the most exciting entries into this new arena is the LG Decoy, ripe with advanced features such as its fully integrated Bluetooth headset that snaps into place, and charges, on the rear of the Decoy phone. The headset does create a small bump on the back of the device, but it's not a hindrance at all, and definitely a very small price to pay for not worrying about losing your headset and purchasing yet another. As always, Verizon does sell headset replacement insurance, on the off chance you don't put the earpiece back into the phone, or lose it in any other manner.
Imagine never again having to look for both your phone and Bluetooth headset, eliminating the need to charge multiple devices. Combined with increasingly enforced regulations regarding talking on a cell phone and driving, the LG Decoy is a friendly, easy to use device that was well thought out and nicely developed.
