    MobileTechReview: LG Ally
    • "800 x 480 capacitive touch screen is very sharp and bright-- we like"
    • "The user interface is responsive, and we had no issues with lag"
    • "There's an embedded d-pad on the right (handy for text editing)"
    • "has excellent call quality on both incoming and outgoing ends"
    • "We were pleasantly surprised that it held its own against the HTC Incredible and Nexus One"
    • "Battery life is solid for a high end smartphone and we had no problem making it through the day with heavy use"

    All I can say is do a compare on Verizon's site between the Ally, Moto Droid, and the HTC Inc. You lose with the Ally.

    Yep, I see the LG loses Skype Mobile, Voice Dialing, V CAST Media Manager, some camera mega-pixels and $100 off the price.:icon_ cry:

    I ordered it because I sold my Droid back in February on craigslist while it was still sort at a good resale price. I don't like the cheap feeling slider or cheapy keyboard on the Droid. I think the Droid graphics are nicer probably but in overall basic phone use I think the ally is going to be a more solid performer but it is a newer phone and is made by LG not Motorola who has terrible quality issues. The ally is an ordinary looking phone though. I' ordered it already and will give it the trial month and if it seems good I'll keep it. I don't know how good it works with playing games and how good the sound is but hopefully it's not bad. It definitely is not a power hog like the Incredible.

    Vcast media manager can be downloaded and installed from Verizon part of android market. Maybe the voice dialer can be also. I never used that on the Droid anyway. I bet the dialer itself on the ally works better to. :)

    I don't think this phone will be a big seller, even if the price is low.

    Exactly -- if you're happy with your Droid then obviously LG's version is "Not the phone for me". If LG implemented a strong signaled reliable phone with good battery life then some might find it superior.

    I don't use my physical keyboard much on my droid, but when I need it...I need it.

    Love my Motorola Droid but I have had quality LG products in the past but still don't think that it is for me.
