Full LG Incite review published

We have seen PocketNow’s impressions of the LG Incite being presented in dribs and drabs over the last week, but they have now finally put up a comprehensive review of the device.

Unfortunately, one can see at a glance that the Cons column is much longer than the Pros, and that Brandon is not particularly happy with the device.

I wont recount the 4 page review, but their conclusions were as follows:

OVERALL IMPRESSION

The Incite packs some great features found only in high-end smartphones, but unfortunately, the device is saddled with so many usability and quality problems that it’s hard to get excited about it. Using the Incite has made me miss the refinement that is found on HTC and Samsung Windows Mobile devices. If you’re on the AT&T network and have an extra $100 to spend, get the Fuze – you’ll be a lot happier.
