LG KC550 review: No thrills, all camera

 

A line of multimedia-oriented handsets has secured LG a strong foothold in the cameraphone kingdom. LG KC550 is probably the first to join the club with only imaging in mind. A mid-range handset with a 5 megapixel camera...

2.4" 262K-color display of QVGA resolution ; Auto screen rotation in image gallery and video player (built-in accelerometer) ; 5 megapixel autofocus camera with active lens cover and Power LED flash ; 720x480pixel@30fps video recording (VGA@15fps is...

Video recording is a great disappointment ; Only 12MB of internal memory ; Poor sunlight legibility ; Really awkward file manager ; No UMTS support ; Only tri-band GSM support ; Glossy front panel is a fingerprint magnet ; No SSL support in the native...

The LG KC550 sure lacks the Viewty power and Secret's Black Label charisma. OK, it's unassuming, but not without a talent of its own. The 5 megapixel slider strives to be the most affordable cameraphone out there with a Wide VGA@30fps video recording...

Review: LG KC550 5 megapixel camera phone

 

The LG KC550 is a mid-range handset with a focus on photo and video and features a 5 megapixel shooter with auto focus and 720x480 video recording. Claiming to be the most affordable in its category, the KC550 also features tri-band GSM connectivity, a...

LG KC550 Review

 

The mobile division of the Korean giant LG is one of the few handset manufacturers that managed to actually make some profit this year. Basically, the company flooded the market with its mobile devices, so that it could meet as many demands as...

The 5 Megapixel camera is by far the main attraction of the phone, alas the only one. One could also enlist the built-in accelerometer among the positive things, but this is functional in only a few areas of the device.

The multimedia part is very poorly represented, as in, "almost inexistent." Crappy sound and no RDS for the radio, as well as the fact that it cannot be ran in the background, place the phone outside the area of interest of music lovers. Lack of 3G...

Still, the screen can be considered mid-ranged in terms of quality, scoring more on the quality of the image displayed, and in terms of performance. One function that saves appearances is the accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate, which is becoming more...

LG KC550 Review

 

Finally, to sum it up, the KC 550 with its exceptional 5 MP camera and a low price turns out to be a good competitor. Before you go out and buy one, you should remember that it does not support GPS and isn't 3G ready. If these don't matter to you, the...

LG KC550 review

 

Is a five megapixel cameraphone always a good bet?

Stylish looking design ; 5 megapixel camera ; Great music player and FM radio ; Motion sensor for games and gallery ; Better than average video capture

Cheap casing ; No 3G or Wi-Fi ; Quirky motion sensor accelerometer ; No 3.5mm headphone jack ; Pictures weren't as good as expected

A good looking but cheap feeling device with a better than average specified camera that doesn't really deliver on its promises

LG KC550 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

While the biggest and normally best phones are available to contract customers looking to sign up to 18-month contracts, when it comes to PAYG offerings

Camera, simple, easy to use

No 3G, accelerometer games basic

With no 3G capabilities this isn't a phone for the web surfer, however it will offer you a simple-to-use phone with 5-megapixel camera and a few extra tricks to boot.

LG's KC550 slider is on the chunky side, but then it does sport a 5-megapixel camera and a reasonable price.

LG KC550 review

 

Five megapixel camphones were once premium gadgets, but LG's latest camphone claims to produce glorious photos for pittance

It’s no mobile A-lister, but the KC550 offers style and a good camera for not much money
