With a four-row full QWERTY keyboard, as well as a 3.2 inch tempered glass touchscreen, the Ally aims for ease-of-use.

The LG Ally comes equipped with the standard Android configuration as well as GPS, a 3.2-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Its variety of standard features make the LG Ally a well-balanced smartphone; its 3.2 megapixel camera and built-in GPS make the Ally a good all-around device in terms of functionality while its Bluetooth and 802.11b/802.11g/802.11n Wi-Fi support serve to make the Ally a powerful media device.

great phone, but one drawback: when the alarm sounds if you push the wrong button you lose the screen and the alarm wont shut off unless you power down!
