LG Cookie Plus GS500 Review

 

After the enormous market success of the LG Cookie KP500 that, as of recently, has been sold in over 10mln units, it´s logical that we see the manufacturer introduce a successor to the famous handset - LG Cookie Plus GS500. Once again the cell phone...

LG Cookie Plus

 

The LG Cookie Plus is a candy bar GSM Quad-band phone capable of global roaming. It's also the slightly scaled down version of the LG Renoir ; it offers a 3MP camera instead of 8MP and lacks support for Wi-Fi and GPS. The Cookie Plus has a 3-inch...

LG GS500v Cookie Plus Review

 

An MRP of Rs. 9,500 seems a little high, especially when the phone lacks a dedicated QWERTY that is a must for those quick tweets, not to mention the lack of a serious clicker. However, these two grouses aside the Cookie Plus is, for the most part a...

Solid and reasonably compact, Neat looks, Lots of applications to try

Resistive touchscreen ruins usability, interface sluggish at times, Camera largely cosmetic (no autofocus, flash), Mediocre call quality

LG GS500 Cookie Plus

 

As is often the case, LG haven't shared the full details about this new phone, but we do know that the GS500 Cookie Plus has a 240 x 400 pixel touchscreen display, a 3 megapixel class camera, 3G support and an FM radio.

LG GS500 Cookie Plus review

 

The LG GS500 Cookie Plus is a move up in the ranks of LG's Cookie mobile phones line-up. Except for the 3G support, the Plus' features still keep it sharply within the confines of the budget touchscreen segment with other phones such as the Samsung...

The LG GS500 Cookie Plus is an inexpensive touchscreen phone in the mould of the Nokia 5233 and the Samsung Monte. Granted, the Plus has the benefit of 3G support but it falls short on too many counts to brand it as a recommended product. If you want...

LG GS500 Cookie Plus

 

The LG Cookie Plus with 3G support represents a small update to the Cookie line-up.

Sleek Looks ; Very Good for Music ; 3G Support ; 2GB Bundled Memory Card

Very Sluggish UI ; Inaccurate Touch, Haptic Feedback ; No Wi-Fi or GPS ; PC Suite Does a Terrible Job of Converting Videos

The LG GS500 Cookie Plus is the first phone in LG's Cookie family of affordable touchscreen phones that supports 3G.

Nice Phone For The Price!

 

And yes, I bought my phone here on Newegg. Put my sim card in and away we go!!

Good clear sound and vivid display. The camera takes decent pictures. They are a little washed out, but I've seen much worse in more expensive phones. You get more than you pay for here! Lots of gizmos and other apps. Resonably responsive touch...

Some operations are too small for my fingers. Fortunately, this phone came with a stylus. The charger is for a european outlet and comes with an adapter for us Americans....When you put it all together, it is rather large and will stick out of the...
