Compare BL40 Chocolate Deals

The LG BL40 Chocolate, with its piano-black chassis, is a smartphone with a 4-inch wide stunning, ultra-wide, capacitive touchscreen display that has a true cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio (so doesn’t crop the edges like an iPhone) and gives the handset a very distinct tall, thin profile. There is no need to scroll horizontally to look at Web pages.

The BL stands for Black Label – the fourth handset in the series. In portrait mode, and this sleek, minimalist device presents you with a standard mobile-phone keypad with multiple letters per key. In landscape mode, it offers a full QWERTY keyboard.

Connectivity is excellent, with quad-band support (global roaming potential), as well as HSDPA (3.5G, in effect) and Wi-Fi for fast Internet access. There is on-board GPS, Bluetooth with A2DP support for wireless audio streaming to a stereo headset and an FM transmitter, so you can send music wirelessly to a car stereo or home hi-fi.

Hurray for LG in providing a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Audio playback is excellent, from both the music player and video player, there is an FM radio and DivX support.

The BL 40 sports a 5 mega pixel camera with autofocus and LED flash. Battery life is rated at up to six hours’ talk time and,with normal use, expect to re-charge it after 36 hours.
