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...

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 revealed back in July that it will launch ten smartphones in a newly-coined Optimus line by year-end. For now it looks like an even mix of Android and WP7 devices will be in it. In the initial announcement, the Optimus line naturally started with...

Among the low/midrange Android devices in the market, the LG Optimus One P500 stands out for its up-to-date as (Froyo), snappy performance, and bundled apps. Built solidly, the 3.2-inch screen has a wide bezel below which lie the Android buttons, with...

LG Optimus One Review

 

The first thing one would notice about the phone is the metal bezel around the phone which is mostly made of plastic. On the front you would find the 3.2 inch capacitive display sporting a resolution of 320×480 pixels.The display is not super...

Simple yet attractive design ; Android 2.2 ; Fast Browser ; Above average battery life ; Value for money ; Loudspeaker

Mediocre Camera and no front facing camera ; No Flash support in Browser

The Optimus One is not the fastest Android phone in the market currently but it does offer a lot of features at an affordable price point. It does not feel cheap despite being made of plastic.
