Checking out my friend's new LG phone

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LG DoublePlay™ for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

So, my friend just signed up for a new T-Mobile account, and he let me check out his new LG Doubleplay phone that is exclusively available at T-Mobile. The first thing that I noticed about his new phone was the cool dual touch screens (hence, the name -- DoublePlay, :-P ), with one of the screens being a larger (3.5 inch) upper display and the other being a lower (2.0 inch) screen embedded in the full QWERTY keyboard. I am envious, because this screen is a lot larger than the screen on my phone.

Second, I noticed that his new phone has a much nicer camera than mine. It's a 5.0 Megapixel camera, which is a lot better than my 1.0 piece of garbage. Also, the coolest thing is that he has an actual flash -- via an LED light -- on his camera. I've never seen that before on a cell phone. I wouldn't be at all surprised if this trend caught on and I see a lot more phones with LED flashes for the camera. Better yet -- and another reason to be jealous -- it will record movies in up to 720p HD!

Probably the third thing that I noticed about the phone was that it came with some pretty cool social networking features. First, it has a nice keyboard for Facebook and texting. While I don't text that much (maybe 20 or so times per month) and don't really do social networking from my phone, I know that this kid is a texting freak! So, I am hoping that this phone will serve him well. Also, the phone has some cool cloud features -- including group text and chat sessions -- that should help both him and other users that need to share content with large groups. All of these features are built on an Andriod "Gingerbread" OS too, so it should be easy to download games and new apps. I wonder how Plants versus Zombies would look on TWO screens?

So, if you're thinking about getting a plan with T-Mobile, be sure to check out the LG DoublePlay today. Also, if you do, leave me a comment and let me know how you like the phone. Do you text a lot on your phones and use Facebook and Twitter on them, or do you just mainly use your phones for calling?
