The LG Cosmos touch cell phone is a basic cell phone that allows you to do a number of typical things beyond placing and receiving calls and voice mails. The phone is part of a new generation of smart phones that allows you to take advantage of features such as touch screens, texting, and accessing the internet. The phone is a continuation of the LG Cosmos, which was a decent little phone in its own right. However, the LG Cosmos touch adds touch capabilities, as implied by its name, as well as a 3.5 mm audio jack, which makes it much easier to use the phone as an mp3 player while on the go. A number of other features, however, are rather similar to their older counterparts in the LG Cosmos, such as a sliding text keyboard, a slot for memory cards, stereo Bluetooth wireless connectivity, and a 1.3 megapixel camera built into the rear of the phone. This article will describe additional features of the LG Comsos touch cell phone.

As described above, the LG Cosmos touch is built to be a basic cell phone. It is also a small one, weighing a paltry 4 ounces and slightly larger than 4 inches by 2 inches by.65 inches in length, width, and height. It has a sliding form factor and contains an internal antenna, as do most phones released these days. A particular strength of the phone is its battery, which gives you up to 6 hours of talk time and up to 480 hours, or 20 days, of standby time. This is considerably more than the estimates most people are able to get from smarter phones such as the iPhone or the Nexus One or the Samsung Fascinate, which shows the advantage you can sometimes receive from choosing a simpler phone over a smarter and more battery hungry one.

The display of the LG Cosmos touch is an LCD screen that is 2.8 inches across diagonally and capable of displaying a 400 x 240 pixel map. The platform and operating system are proprietary to LG. It isn't known how much memory is built into the phone, but the phone book has a capacity of up to 1000 numbers. Additionally, a number of accessibility features have been built into the phone to make it more user friendly for people of a variety of ages and abilities. For example, you can adjust the size of text on the phone to make it easier to send or read messages or to dial numbers on the phone. The phone is also compatible with hearing aids and supports Spanish as well as English.

When it comes to alerts, you can select vibrating or polyphonic ring tone options. You have a number of connectivity options, including Bluetooth and USB. You can enter up to 5 numbers per contact entry, and if you want to add a picture or ringer identification system to make it easier to figure out which of your friends is calling you, you can do so easily. Overall, the LG Cosmos touch is a decent little cell phone that lets you do more than simply make calls.
