The Bottom Line The LG Dare is an innovative and feature-rich handset, with several surprises that set it apart from other touch-screen phones. The LG EnV Touch's combination of great design and top-notch features makes it one of the top Verizon Wireless phones we've ever seen. Despite our issues with the browser and the uninteresting design, the LG Chocolate Touch is a terrific music phone for Verizon Wireless. Though we had some minor complaints here and there, the Voyager's sleek design, generous feature set and excellent performance make it the best LG messaging and multimedia phone by far. The Samsung Brightside isn't my all-time favorite feature phone, thanks to its exposed touch-screen menu, low-res screen, and laggy processor, but it is one option for Verizon customers.
