The LG LX160 cell phone is a good little phone for anyone who wants the basics. It is a flip style phone. The strengths of the LG LX160 include a dedicated texting button, sturdy design, and pretty cheap price tag. The LG LX160 also has Blue Tooth capabilities, speaker phone, and all the other features that have come to be considered basic: calander, alarms, headphone jack, contact lists, etcetera. What the LG LX160 lacks are the bells and whistles of today's "smart phones". It is not a touch screen, does not have an MP3 music player, and does not even boast a camera. You can access the Internet for ringtone and game downloads, but true Internet browsing would be nearly impossible on the LG LX160's small screen. The battery life of the LG LX160 is nothing to sneeze at, lasting up to 2 or 3 days (with minimal use) without needing a recharge. Overall, the LG LX160 is a great starter phone for basic users.
