LG KP500 Cookie review: Grab a bite

 

It almost feels unfair of LG to give the KP500 a name that's so hard to say no to. The Cookie scent seems to have inspired a craving already and LG are hoping to have you coming back for more. A genuinely affordable touchscreen, a very decent specs...

3" 256K-color TFT touchscreen (240 x 400 pixels) ; Quad-band GSM support ; 3 megapixel fixed focus camera ; Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP ; 50MB internal memory ; Hot-swappable microSD card slot (supporting card with capacity of up to 16GB) ; Accelerometer...

No 3G support ; No Wi-Fi ; Video recording no good at QVGA@12fps ; Camera has no auto focus and flash ; No DivX/Xvid support ; No standard 3.5mm audio jack

By the way, LG have seen to it that the jar is full of Cookies of various icing. The KP500 comes in black, brown, silver and gold. Just released and exclusive to Orange, LG KP 501 is the very same Cookie (with minor changes to the exterior) in two new...

LG Cookie Review

 

The LG Cookie is a cheap touchscreen phone with a good array of functions. Its slim design and good camera functions make it popular among younger users.

LG Cookie KP500

 

LG Mobile is the first one to introduce an affordable, full touchscreen phone in the market. Banking on the popularity of touchscreen devices and marketing it to folks with a limited budget, LG is poised to grab a segment that might just bite the cookie.

LG KP500 Cookie Review- Sophistication in its own kind of taste

 

Ever since the mainstreaming of touchscreen phones (thanks to Apple's brilliant move with the iPhone), there has been waves of other touchscreen phones from all sides, and LG is no exception. LG didn't have that much of a name in the mobile phone...

LG Cookie KP500

 

It looks similar to LG's award-winning Renoir so can we expect a similar showing from the company's Cookie?

LG KP500 Cookie

 

LG has gone touchscreen crazy recently, launching a range of different devices with varying feature sets. The Renoir obviously is at the top of the pile with multimedia and camera options aplenty, perhaps making your compact camera feel a little...

Budget touchscreen handset in a slim shell

Not as fully-featured as the Renoir, but a fraction of the price

That said, there’s not a whole lot not to dislike with the LG Cookie, when you consider that this is a touchscreen budget mobile phone. The camera may only be 3-megapixel, but it’s almost as fully-featured as the Renoir, minus the luxuries such as GPS...

LG has kindly baked a touch phone for punters on a strict prepay budget. But is the Cookie tasty or stale?

An affordable and appealing introduction to the world of touch phones if you don't do much web browsing

LG Cookie KP500 review

 

The iPhone lookalike for those hit by the credit crunch

Touchscreen control ; Affordable price ; Minimalist design ; Onscreen widgets ; 3-megapixel camera ; Music player ; MicroSD memory card support ; Mostly good user interface ; Virtual Qwerty keyboard text input option

No smartphone capability ; No 3G ; No Wi-Fi ; No GPS ; Texting can be tricky ; Virtual Qwerty keyboard keys too small for quick typing ; Motion-controlled games limited ; Widgets are limited ; Camera quality isn't great ; Average quality supplied...

It doesn't do all the high-end stuff that other top-of-range touchscreen models do, and its text inputing will put off some. But the user interface is generally good to use. And for mobile buyers on a restricted budget who want their share of...

LG Cookie KP500

 

The Kp500 is one of the cheapest touch screen handsets that tries to do great things and manages to deliver on some fronts, but not all

With a brilliant pricing of Rs. 13,990 it is quite a large touch screen for that price and on the whole even with all it’s oddities and quirks, it's still quite a pretty decent handset. It's loaded with multimedia features for editing videos and images...
