My son is looking to use a non smartphone as an MP3 player.  ( there are very few MP3 players on the market and they Are not so cheap either so he thought this would be a good alternative )
I won't get him something with wifi capabilities.
I saw that the cosmos is listed as having a browser.
Is that a  real browser?  Can you really use it?
Anyone have other ideas or phones to reccomend?
The cosmos has a browser which works when/if a line is put on. you can bring it to TAG to have it disabled. Alternatively, you can purchase a Sansa Clip Voice for $53 on eBay

The Cowon J3 is pretty good, but it's discontinued. I got mine on ebay.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

That depends on the version. Some they need to open and cut something.

Sansa Clip Voice is just voice nothing else it is a new model from Sansa. No radio or anything else, rumor has it that it was made for one of the Jewish stores.

Looking for dumb phone with easy texting. Which is an easier keyboard to type quickly on LG Cosmos 3 or LG Octane?

Honestly, it is a matter of personal preference. I think that swipe out keyboard (Cosmos 3) is much easier to use quickly than a flip-open-in-the-width keyboard.

The octane has the advantage of a larger screen inside

Bigger screen space maybe... The screen itself is marginally bigger (2.6" to 2" for the Cosmos) and the exact same resolution as the Cosmos which means that it fits about the same amount of stuff.

That is more that 25 percent bigger

Maybe the LG Xpression 2, but it has no physical front keyboard.
