The LG Genesis succeeds again, this time when it comes to the user interface. The dual screens seem like a gimmick, but when it comes to practical use, the dual screens are extremely helpful. For quick updates, you can use the front screen, but if you need to reply to a text or email, simply flip open the phone and start typing away on the full QWERTY keyboard. The second screen is automatically in landscape mode for your ease of use.
The keyboard itself is very well built and responsive. It's also very roomy, offering five rows of keys and a directional pad to the right. The keys click back responsively and typing is fairly smooth, with little need to go searching for keys. Along the left of the keyboard, the four Android shortcuts reappear, which is actually helpful if you need to navigate through the phone while in this mode. You don't have to close the phone to use these shortcuts, which was smart thinking on the part of LG.
Another little addition that LG added was the inclusion of a dedicated camera button. Many smartphones seem to forget this handy option, but the LG Genesis thankfully includes it. The dedicated camera buttons help to take some solid, non blurry pictures on the 5 megapixel camera that's equipped on it. Overall, the user interface is surprisingly a great area for the device.
