Review: LG Shine


You wouldn't expect some mail-order bride to manage your investment portfolio. So if you're cool with form over function, this pretty stainless-steel slider is a...

Crisp photos at up to 1,600 x 1,200 pixels. Feels solid, comfy in hand. 3G! Main nav joystick translates well to games like Pac-Man and Tetris. Always-on flash good for dimly lit close-ups

No 3.5-mm headphone jack. Grainy video clips limited to 42 seconds. Joystick (oy stick!) can be hypersensitive. Heavy at 4.2 ounces. A faux-Razr keypad in 2008

LG Shine review


One of LG's star handsets this year was definitely the LG Shine, which debuted earlier in the year to quite a bit of fanfare. Back then, the only unit available was the LG Shine KE970 , made primarily for the European and Asian market. You could get an...

The LG Shine CU720 is a very attractive slider handset with 3G support, a nice array of multimedia features, and good call quality.

The LG Shine CU720 has a tiny and very sensitive navigation joystick, plus a flat and crowded keypad.

Though we had a few quibbles with the phone's design, overall we were pleased with the LG Shine CU720's impressive style and feature set.

LG Shine Review


LG had a smash hit when they came out with the Chocolate. To continue upon that success, another stylish line was released, the LG Shine.

LG Shine


Introduction Recently, LG has sent TWL several phones to review one of which was the LG Voyager reviewed by Jason Dumbaugh. The Voyager may have been a great phone, but we know its not for everyone. The next phone LG sent TWL was the LG Shine and...

Final Thoughts: The LG Shine is definitely a phone with bling that will get noticed; especially when you're out doors and the sun is shining. The screen having a near mirror like finish does make it a little difficult to see the screen on a bright...

Expert Review


The LG Shine offered by AT&T is a great looking mobile media device. The punchy LCD screen looks great and provides users with a wide viewing angle. The sliding top makes the compact phone more usable during calls and is a nice alternative to the...

Video Tour: LG Shine


The LG Shine brings 3G to the table in a shiny aluminum package. It might catch your eye, but the rest of its feature list isn't as tempting.

SlashPhone Review: LG’s Shine


With Chocolate a runaway success, LG's follow-up handset lands to high expectations. There's no doubting that it's a sexy little beast, and the innovative scroll wheel promises to make navigation a doddle, but can this cellphone be as sweet as its...
