LG KP500 COOKIE REVIEW: STYLISH, SMARTEST, ONE-TOUCH SENSOR YET  BUDGET AND CHEAP, THAT ANYONE CAN BUY

 

review : LG KP500 “Cookie, anyone?”

hey look out for the ‘cookie’ that had been baked by LG this year. This very attractive handphone you can expect a lot of compliments when using this phone and you’ll have to prepare to be the envy of your friends due to the high performance and high quality look and feel of this phone. The phone is a great device and shows why LG are at the top of their game – this is one of many touch screen phones LG have released this year and the LG KP500 could be a contender as the best.

LG Electronics had launched their latest touchscreen device but this new mobile phone is different in one major way to the ever increasing number of touchscreen releases, the LG KP500 also known as the the LG Cookie is by far the most affordable of its kind on the market. With only-one-touch interactive function by sliding, dragging, or tapping on the screen, Active Flash UI of LG-KP500 will allow you to get an access to the menu to arrange icons on the screen quickly. All icons will fall back into place when the mobile phone is shaken.

Check out the new LG Cookie (KP500) for RM899.

The manufacturer seem to be targetting the budget market place with phones that offer features only usually found in top end models, take for example their LG KS360 phone – the cheapest mobile with a built-in full QWERTY keyboard, looks like they’ve hit on a couple of winning handsets with the onset of a recession!

Entertainment phone from LG which although lacks 3G, has a huge range of features which will keep you entertained for a long time. This phone is not only feature filled but it is great looking as well and offers users a stylish and sophisticated handset with fun and entertaining features. The phone is also available in several colours which mean you can enjoy a unique handset with a good range of high quality features from LG.

Initially released in black, the LG KP500 Cookie is also set to be launched in silver, red and gold colour variants.

The LG KP500 Cookie offers a 3.0 inch wide full touch screen which is more screen “real estate” to better enjoy watching videos, playing games, and looking at photos. Bigger is better and that also makes it easier to use by physical touch since larger icons are easier to navigate than smaller ones.
The user interface is so intuitive that users will want to explore and master all of the functions and features of the LG Cookie. The UI allows users to access menus easily and shift around other menus simply and quickly with just one touch.

The easy-to-use smart handwriting recognition function of the LG-KP500 allows users to send text messages without using the touch keyboard. It is possible to write in complicated languages such as Chinese. In the photo mode, users can easily edit their photos with the stylus pen.

Using advanced motion sensor technology, the LG KP500 adds more fun interactivity to games so users can enjoy mobile entertainment in a more dynamic and exciting way.
The games loaded on the LG-KP500 use a motion sensor that requires the user’s eye-hand coordination to balance, flip, shift, and twist the handset to play the games.

The QWERTY onscreen keyboard slides into view when the LG-KP500 is held horizontally, and the auto rotating display always shifts images or documents for proper viewing no matter which way the handset is turned.

Besides an affordable touch-screen mobile phone with handwriting recognition and a built-in stylus for ease, a massive 3 inch TFT display screen you’ll be able to view all your pictures and videos with quality. The LG Cookie is also jam-packed full of essential features! The built-in 3.0-megapixel camera and video recorder are great for capturing all those fun spontaneous times. The FM Radio and MP3 Player are just what you need to listen to the latest and your favourite music tracks. You’ll be able to store all your favourite tracks and photo’s with the 48MB internal memory. But what’s even better is you can get up 8GB of external memory with MicroSD memory card!

Viewing pictures is great on the LG due to the Accelerometer which allows the display screen to auto rotate so you can view pictures` both landscape and portrait! Plus you’ll have WAP 2.0 which allows you to access your emails and a range of information from the internet!

  1. am current owner of one. very disappointed with prevalence of so many bugs. A few of the its irritating problems are:-
    a) switches off by itself often. When one switches it on again, the phone reverts to its factory settings and deletes everything in the mailbox.
    b) If battery runs flat and after recharge, the phone again reverts to its factory setting and deletes contents of mailbox.
    c) interface is particularly slow
    d) Malaysia after sales service is way below standard.
