There is a very cutesy design element associated with the LG Neon GT365 thanks to its marketing towards the younger heavy messaging demographic. It incorporates a touch screen with a slide out QWERTY reminiscent of the late LG Xenon. The phone feels somewhat cheap due to the plasticy pastel colored material used for the body. Luckily the good contrast of the pastel blue and gray colors mix well to provide a nice balance. Edges are rounded and holding it in your hand feels natural without having too much weight (3.81 oz). We don't like that it adds some thickness (0.66”) in the pocket when the Xenon, with all its packed features, is still thinner.
The text messaging lineup on AT&T seems to get more crowded with yet another entry level device hitting the scene. First unveiled during CTIA, the LG Neon GT365 is an almost direct facsimile of the LG KS360 that our European counterparts saw a year ago. We've seen the fully rich features found on the LG Xenon. On the other hand, the Neon is an entry level semi-hybrid touch screen phone with a slide out QWERTY. Although it's made with the text messenger in mind, the features packed into the phone may steer it above the rest.
