The Arena is the latest touchscreen LG phone to be launched

Consumers recycling mobile phones in order to buy a new touchscreen device have been given a little help by a new review.

In an article for PC Authority, Daniel Long puts the LG Arena up against its closest competitor - the iPhone 3G - and notes that although there are many similarities, there are also a number of points that divide the two models.

He says the South Korean manufacturer has not attempted to hide the basic design elements that borrow from Apple - but adds the handset could be the first to truly challenge its crown.

"After our brief play with the phone today, we feel this might actually be the first phone to truly turn customers away from Apple," Mr Long adds.

In terms of weight, size, audio quality, video functions and camera facilities, the LG Arena is the outright winner - but adds its screen size, user interface, menu functions and lack of an App Store mean the iPhone triumphs in other areas.

Apple recently posted a competition on its website to celebrate the imminent one billionth download from its online App Store.
