The Bottom Line The LG Rumor Touch is a touch-screen messaging phone from Sprint with a user interface that makes text messaging a breeze. As a feature phone, the Rumor Reflex can do the basics well and its QWERTY keyboard and touch-screen display make it easy to use. If you're trying to avoid a data plan, the Samsung Trender is one affordable messaging option, though one of Sprint's budget Android phones could prove a better value. Though the LG Rumor is not as fast as we'd like, it's still a great messaging multimedia device for those who don't need a lot of speed. The LG Optimus S is an affordable yet full-featured Android smartphone for Sprint, but we did wish the call quality were better.
