LG KS360 review: Of teens and twitters

 

LG KS360 is a mid-ranger that will easily catch your eye with bold colors and quirky controls. LG have managed to create a handset that's cunningly full of character, though it's kinda hard to think of it in the hands of...

Tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Large 2.4" TFT display of QVGA resolution ; Full slide-out QWERTY keyboard with screen rotation ; Touchscreen dialing ; 2 megapixel camera ; Stereo Bluetooth ; FM radio ; microSD memory card slot (up to 4GB) ; Threaded...

No UMTS support ; No camera autofocus ; Poor video recording resolution (fit for MMS only) ; Awkward file manager - no user-created folders ; Uncomfortable phonebook (takes two clicks to get to the contacts list) ; No smart dialing ; The FM radio lacks...

This midrange phone isn't exactly hard to keep your cool about and the flashy paintjobs don't help much either. But we were pleasantly surprised by the ergonomics and performance of the KS360. So while we gear up to put the LG KS360 through its paces,...

LG KS360 Review

 

Before we talk about the highlights of the phone, be reminded that the KS360 is somewhat an entry-level phone and thus do not have all the bells and whistles one would expect — there's no WiFi, no 3G or GPS inside, just Bluetooth — so you can stop...

LG KS360 Review

 

LG KS360 was launched with a specific target in mind, namely youngsters that use their device mainly for texting. Boasting a full QWERTY keyboard and a partial touch display, LG KS360 looks like a toy, which was probably intended by the Korean...

The highlights of the device are definitely the QWERTY keyboard, the low price, as well as the microSD slot card and the touch screen dialing function. The ergonomic built of the gadget is also worth mentioning together with some of the basic...

I think the main drawbacks of the device are the low-end camera and the awkward file manager. Also, the autonomy of the battery could have been better. The integrated browser and the small screen are some of the disappointments of the slider as well....

LG KS360

 

LG makes some of the most practical, feature-specific phones in the market. We saw that with the LG KU250 and the LG KP500 targeting a single specific feature at an affordable price. The LG KS360 is an attempt to take full qwerty messaging to the masses.

LG KS360

 

LG Mobile announces the launch of the LG KS360, its vibrantly coloured, feature-packed mobile phone specifically designed for messaging on the move. The LG KS360's sliding QWERTY keypad and high-spec messaging features mean that users can send SMS, IM,...

LG Etna

 

Life will soon be good as LG Electronics has made their first Android phone – the rumored LG Etna – official with a press release announcing it as the LG GW620. The GW620 follows the HTC Dream and Motorola CLIQ in its form factor, offering a 3-inch...

LG KS360

 

The QWERTY keyboard comes to prepaid, but lack of 3G dampens the occasion.

Design, QWERTY keyboard, display, value for money

Proprietary headphone/charging jack, lack of 3G connectivity

Targeted at teenagers, the KS360 is a commendable effort, but its lack of 3G connectivity is a black mark considering its features list. The QWERTY keyboard is excellent for SMS use, though, and the price is definitely appealing.

LG KS360

 

LG brings a fairly basic handset to the party, but squeezes in a full QWERTY slide out keyboard.

LG KS360 mobile phone

 

The KS360 is a compact side-slider, measuring 101.5 x 51 x 16.8mm. Whilst compact, it is rather thick by modern standards because it slides open in landscape format to reveal a full QWERTY keypad. Our review sample was a pre-production model in red and...

Great screen, good QWERTY keypad, some interesting details

Navigation options can be confusing, some text entry problems, limited connectivity

LG did warn us that the phone might be a little slow because it was a pre-production sample, but encouragingly we didn’t encounter any problems. The touchscreen utilisation is better than in previous phones from LG and is pretty straight-forward to...

LG KS360 review

 

REVIEW: A budget phone for the social networking age

Slide-out Qwerty keyboard ; Messaging-centric design ; Touchscreen dialling ; Good-sized 2.4-inch display ; Great camera ; Good quality music player ; MicroSD card expansion ; Fast access social networking options ; Solid design and build

Keyboard can be fiddly to use ; Keys could be better marked ; Touchscreen limited to dialling only ; Average quality 2-megapixel camera ; No 3G connectivity ; Low spec browser ; Basic music player user interface ; No 3.5mm headphone socket

Budget mobile with slide-out Qwerty keyboard and touchscreen dialling may appeal to heavy-duty messagers, but it lacks punch in other feature areas
