LG cu515 mobile phone
LG has most of the limelight and success with their CDMA phones, like the Voyager, but they are in the mobile phone companies and, as convincingly demonstrated by the CU515. The CU515 lacks its predecessor's external music controls, but the two handsets are roughly the same size (3.78 inches by 1.95 inches by 0.72 inch vs. 3.8 inches by 1.95 inches by 0.61 inch). The CU515 is a tad heavier, but it still makes for a comfortable feel in the hand and it slips easily into a pocket. The two-inch screen is sufficient and lively, so watching videos on a pleasure. The menus are intuitive and friendly for the user that can not be said for many of the newer phones on the market, particularly those with a host of functions. The keypad buttons also resemble those on the Muziq. They're also flat with the surface of the phone, but their large size makes them easy to use. The numbers on the keys are larger, but the backlighting could be a tad brighter. You can personalize the CU515 with a variety of wallpapers, calendar styles, and color themes. If you'd like more choices you can download additional options and ringtones via the AP 2.0 wireless Web browser.
While the phone does have MP3 support, it does not include a USB cable to hook up to your computer to transfer music. The camcorder shoots clips in a 176x144 resolution with sound. Clips meant for multimedia messages are capped at 45 seconds; otherwise you can shoot for as long as the available memory permits. So yes, it does play music, but LG is not doing much to help you play it. The media that you download does come in quite fast, but once you get it, you might not be terribly impressed by the inconsistent quality.
