Rogers recently released the LG Eve, this is another Android-powered device that does come with some great features. In our first review we took a quick look around the hardware… mainly because our original was so incredibly blurry.
The design of the Eve is clean and has pronounced rounded chrome edges. The overall dimensions are 109 x 54.5 x 15.9mm and weighs in at a decent 139 grams. There are other Android devices that are thinner but weigh a great deal more, so the Eve comes right in the middle and feels great in your hands.
You’ll see in the video that the device has minimal keys on the face. Only a back button, OK button and home button that all give haptic feedback when pressed. Apart from these the only visible buttons are the volume rocker on the left hand side, power/lock button on top plus the one-touch buttons for the music and 5.0 mega pixel camera (can take video and has auto-focus and flash) on the right. Other key parts of the hardware are the micro USB for charging and syncing your data plus a micro SD slot that can hold up to 16GB (Rogers ships with a 2GB card).
On the top is a welcomed 3.5 mm headset jack. Under the back cover you’ll find a SIM card slot and the 1500 mAh battery that can give you around 6 hours of talk time. When you slide open the device you reveal the 5-row full QWERTY keyboard. These keys are nicely spaced out and have a directional keys with a button that gives you quick access to your main menu.
Over the next few days I’m going to play around with the Eve and give it a run for it’s money. LG is going heavy on this as a social media device that can connect to all your circles… so send us any questions you have and we’ll do our best do include them in the review.
