I apologize for the inconvenience, but this page has been moved.
I do not see the website that you direct your readers to has anything to do with a review of the LG 3280.
The other clickable cell phone models at the top of your page seem to give an excellent review. Well, at least the Moto W376 has a detailed review!
Sory for the confusion. I have not done a review of the 3280. I am currently using one as a backup phone, though, so perhaps that’s something that I should work on if there is an interest in it. I haven’t done so to this point mainly because I started this blog just under a year ago, and the 3280 had already been out for some time. The other phones that I have reviewed all have been released since I’ve started this blog, so I reviewed them shortly after the release. But seeing as the 3280 is one of the few CDMA phones still being sold, I should consider doing at least a short review of that phone. Thanks for calling it to my attention.
I would really like to see a review of the 3280, as Tracfone has a great deal on their website with 800 min, DMFL, and One Year with phone purchase for $99.99. That’s a great price. So I’m torn between buying a W376G because it has a lot of features I really like and buying the 3280 because it’s a better deal. How is the call quality on the 3280? Can you send text messages to email addresses with both the 3280 and the W376G? (I know one is CDMA and one is GSM.) Do newer GSM phones have text-to-email capability (my Motorola V170 cannot do that)? How is the battery life on the 3280? Thanks!
I don’t currently have an active 3280 in my fleet of phones – I should have done a review prior to the old one lapsing, but didn’t get to it. Maybe I’ll get around to it later this month or early next month, but honestly the newer phones would take priority over that.
Also, I should point out that sometime today the 3280 + DMFL + 800 Min + year deal was taken down from TracFone’s list of available phone deals. That has happened once in the past, and it came back several days to maybe as much as a week later, I don’t recall exactly. Anyway, it’s not available at the moment but may come back.
Now, to answer your questions, I prefer the w376g strictly for voice quality. I live in a somewhat rural area, though, and find that the CDMA phones, using the Verizon and/or Alltel networks (soon to become merged as Verizon), get slightly better coverage. Call quality on the 3280 is acceptable, but not up to the level of Motorola’s new “Crystal Talk” quality.
Both phones can send text messages to email, in my experience. Battery life on the 3280 was fantastic for me – I believe that at one point I inadvertently left the phone, active but unused, turned on in a desk drawer and it lasted 8-9 days before it started beeping at me. Obviously that didn’t include any use, but I was still impressed. On the w376g, I would expect to charge it at least twice, maybe three times per week. Some users have really disliked this; for me, charging every 2-3 days doesn’t seem that unreasonable. I guess it depends on what you’re used to.
