LaptopMag whipped out a quick review of Verizon's newest cell phone with piggybacking Bluetooth headset and for the most part, they like. The LG Decoy does seem to shine -- in fact they call it brilliant -- the pairing process with the headset's a breeze, they love that it charges while nestled in the back of the handset, and when not using little stowaway, the speakerphone is loud. Of course, there seem to be a few drawbacks, headset battery life is a pitiful 2 hours, the two-in-one combo at 4.1 ounces is a tad hefty, wind noise is a serious problem, and at $179 after discount, it's pricey.
