The LG eXpo boasts an impressive list of firsts. The eXpo is the first smartphone available from a US carrier to be equipped with a 1 GHz snapdragon processor, and the first phone available in the US to sport an optional pico projector accessory that you can slap onto the back of the phone and project anything displaying on the screen up to 8-feet (the projector will be covered in a later video review).
A fingerprint sensor that doubles as a multi-directional trackpad adds to the charm and allure of the LG eXpo. The fingerprint sensor actually works impressively well to quickly unlock the phone, and can be programmed to work with multiple fingers. Swipes must be relatively slow, though, or the phone will not recognize the fingerprint.
While the eXpo is defaulted to the standard WindowsMobile 6.5 user interface out of the box, the interface can be easily changed to LG’s custom S-Class user interface. The S-Class interface arms the eXpo with a more usable interface, providing three home screens including a favorite media and favorite contacts screen as well as a number of handy shortcuts.
