If you are hunting for a mid-range multimedia phone that is more of a show-off, have a look at LG Chocolate BL-20. I call it a super sexy phone with sleek look and glossy finish. If asked to rate on the basis of looks, I will give LG BL 20 Chocolate 10/10.
The very first look of BL-20 will give you an impression of a touchscreen phone (though this one is a slider). Seems LG has made efforts to give a class to the phone and has succeeded to some extent. The phone has touchscreen navigation, which I must say is highly touch sensitive. You might end up opening another application, if you will not clearly focus on the key your are touching.
Chocolate BL-20 has 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash to satisfy your craving for clicking good photographs. I won’t say that camera quality is amazing, but it is pretty decent and you might find it tough to capture good pics if lighting conditions are inadequate. It has 4x digital zoom and auto focus features also. Text scan is an additional feature, which gives you an ease to scan photographs via phone and mail them anytime, anywhere.

Users have the option to personalize the phone with widget keys and get direct access to features like weather or news. Though, the phone does not have GPS option, but it comes with Google Maps. Being a 3G phone, it provides better connectivity and data transfer functionality to users. You can send multiple files at a single time via Bluetooth, which is definitely a time saving thing.
If you are a music lover, Chocolate BL-2O can be a bit disappointment for you. Though the phone has FM radio, but the audio clarity is poor. Keeping the phone in pocket or in bag while listening radio means poor transmission of signals and all you will hear is a really annoying disturbance. I don’t know why LG has not paid attention to such an important feature of the phone. Listening to your favorite tracks on the phone is not going to be a pleasant experience.
For those who are switching from Nokia phone to chocolate, texting will be an easier deal as the phone functions similar to any basic Nokia phone. You can set up an email account on the Symbian 40 phone as well as send SMS without much hassle.
BL-20 has volume and camera side keys, which I will not say have really smooth operation. The phone has single point for charger, headphone and USB connectivity. One thing I really liked about the phone is that you can remove the connectivity port from charger and use it as USB (now you don’t have to carry USB with you everytime).
Priced approximately 10,000, LG Chocolate BL-20 is not a bad deal for those who give preference to looks over functions.
