The entire package of the Ally comes with the users battery, USB Cable cum charging cord, AC Adapter, instruction manuals and of course the device itself. The new Smartphone has a 3.2 inch touch screen display (with additional touch vibration feature), QWERTY slide out keyboard, 3.2 mega pixel camera and a lot of other applications like built in MP3 and WMA music player. Apart from this, the Smartphone features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, miscroSD slots supporting up to 16 GB memory etc. The device also showcases five customizable home screens, offering shortcuts to the users for fast responses such as email, text messages, social networking sites and widgets.

While the Smartphone offers almost everything at par with other medium range Smartphone in market, the camera on offer (3.2 megapixels) becomes extremely inferior to others ranging from 5 to 8 megapixels within the same range. Nevertheless, the presence of flash, auto focus, digital zoom and editing options like white balance, ISO settings and eight effects ensure that the users are not very disappointed! Besides, the quality offered during video recording is pretty decent. Then again, the lack of Snapdragon processor is surely evident as the phone tends to become sluggish at times. The touchscreen is also not as effective as one would have liked, though the keys are quite responsive when it comes to the keyboard.

In terms of call quality, Ally is really well equipped. Call crops are not an issue with this phone while the call quality is extremely good and clear. The data speed offered by the phone too is reasonable, as heavy content and data files open fast and easily.

For all those interested, Ally is available on line for $99.99. The price comes after a record discount of $100. The launch date is said to be May 27, when all the pre-booked orders begin to be delivered. The price though comes with a catch. For all the users availing the discount, you need to undertake a two-year customer agreement in the form of a credit card. Besides, Ally customers will also be required to subscribe to Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk Plan along with other facilities.

Overall, LG Ally makes for a good buy for all those looking for the features and working of a smart phone in a budgeted profile.
