 LG KP500 - An outstanding phone

| | See all squarefish's reviews (3)

This phone represents outstanding value. Hitting the perfect balance between tech gadget and being user friendly, I am very impressed. In fact you can't help being absorbed by the whole experience, and I have found myself using all the features the phone has to offer as it is such fun to use.
The obvious reason for buying this phone is of course the touchscreen experience, and the user interface does not disappoint. The screens are clear and the icons well designed. On the home screen you add wigets of your choice, while a sweep of your finger takes you to contact widgets for quick access to your favourite numbers. The motion sensing can be used to align the widgets - just shake the phone and they line themselves up. This is also used in the games included on the phone, one where you shake to throw the dice. At the bottom are shortcuts to get to the organiser, photo/video gallery etc
Although it does not have 3G or WiFi it depends on whether you need them, as phones that do would cost considerably more. For me web on a mobile is not something I use often, but I found the WAP perfectly acceptable. This is a also good time to introduce the stylus which is housed in the base of the phone. The precision it gives is ideal when selecting links or buttons which are often small and very close together on a mobile web page. For all other navigating or texting your fingers are fine, but you can also use the stylus for drawing and in the handwriting recognition mode, a novel way of converting your writing into text. As long as you write upright with even pressure the software copes very well recognising your input. For text messaging, besides handwritten input you can use either standard numeric text input, or rotate the phone and a qwerty keyboard appears.
The 3MP camera does not have a flash, but takes decent photos in good light conditions. There are plenty of settings and after effect filters to play around with including morph which makes for hilarious portraits. There is also a burst mode to take 3, 6 or 9 pictures in quick succession, so you can select the best photo in a sequence. You can print your pictures via Bluetooth or transfer to a PC with the supplied usb cable.
This is the best phone I have owned, no question. Five Stars.

Top 100 Games Reviewer

This phone is a great... before i got this model i had the viewty which is also a good phone, But the Cookie is lighter and slimmer and looks far better. Ido have to agree with one review that there is a delay with the responce when touching the buttons but its not that bad. the music player is so simple to use, and also when your sending a text flip the phone sideways and a qwerty keyboard appers which makes texting so much easyer. The only real gripe i have with the phone is when you trans music onto it, you have to trans files through the softwear provided and it takes quite a while to do this, you cant just drag and drop your files like other phones. but other than that i really cant fault this litte beauty........well worth the money..

I've had this phone for a couple of months now, and I can't wait to get rid of it. It looks nice, but on more than one occassion I have phoned people by accident (when the keys have been locked). I often receive two or more of the same text message, and other times it says I have a new message but then it disappears for hours before I can open it. Also the internet very often stops working, so I have to keep switching off and on again. Battery life is poor, it also goes from 3 bars to 1 without any warning. It is a good price, but you can get better phones for the same price.
