For example, check out the LG Chocolate 3. This phone proves that the third time really is the charm. Previous Chocolates were trendy and did pretty well but never really felt refined enough to recommend. The Chocolate 3 changes all of that.
First off it’s a classic flip that’s easy to tuck away. The buttons feel solid and it has dedicated music buttons. We tried one of the new SanDisk slotMusic cards with this phone and had the music playing in 2 clicks. That’s faster than you can access music on some dedicated MP3 players.
The chocolate includes a full size 3.5mm headphone jack making it easy to plug it directly into the aux input on a car stereo head unit. If that’s not an option it also has an FM transmitter to broadcast the music to your car stereo. This probably won’t be great for battery life but in the car you can have the phone charging anyway. In standalone mode playing music on the built in speakers it sounds like a decent clock radio. Plug in headphones and you’re rockin.
Other features include Bluetooth®, 1GB of internal memory, a 2.0 megapixel camera and a microSD slot for adding more memory, up to 8GB or about 2000 songs. By the way we were able to grab some images from the slotMusic card and use it as wallpaper on the phone.
