Keyboard and Navigation
The LG Dare’s on-screen QWERTY keypad is spacious and better than the LG Versa's. The letters are bigger and with each key press the selected letter pops out, so you know which one you’ve selected. On the other hand, Versa's on screen QWERTY keypad is comparatively difficult to use, causing a lot of typing errors. But, the add-on QWERTY keypad module makes texting much easier on the Versa.
The Dare’s ‘scattered’ animated user interface is fun but the fun wears off rather quickly and you end up switching to the static UI. While the Dare’s fluid interface is fun to use, you’ll appreciate the 3D interface on the Versa. Swiping your finger across the touch screen on the Versa will toggle you through three customizable home screens; one for your favorites, a second for your regular shortcuts and the third for multimedia shortcuts.
LG Dare’s menu interface is very confusing because it has two menus, which are very similar to each other. One is the customizable home screen menu and the other is the shortcuts menu that pops out when you press the small arrow icon located on the right hand side of the screen.
The LG Versa, on the other hand, offers a better main menu interface that can also be changed into a ‘smart menu’ that displays a list of options on the left hand side that you can select from and actions on the right hand side.
