LG KS360 - LG KS360

Summary

Our Score:

6

When it comes to the camera you are limited to shooting stills at resolutions up to 2-megapixels. There is a side button which launches the camera and can be used to take photos. It is on the lower left edge rather than the more usual right edge, as this is occupied by the sliding keyboard. This means you need to use phone left handed when in camera mode, tapping the camera button with your left forefinger. Lefties will be happy and it isn’t difficult for righties either, it’s just different.

The camera lacks a flash or autofocus. Image quality is OK if all you want is a quick throw away snap, but not up to much more. The coloured dish photographed indoors under ordinary household lights is dull and lacking in vibrancy. The chair photographed outside has definite blue and pink tones to what should be its uniform white. The tomatoes were photographed fairly close in, and show that close focus is a challenge for this phone.

There is a Web browser on board but it isn’t all that good. It wouldn’t load the TrustedReviews home page saying the content was too large. So I guess you are taking your chances with what it will and won’t cope with.

In addition to what’s already been mentioned you get a calendar, memo maker, alarm, voice recorder, calculator, stopwatch, unit converter, world clock and a couple of games.

Verdict

The quirky design of this handset is appealing, and the one-function dialler touch screen is very useful. The keyboard isn’t the most ergonomic I’ve seen, but frequent texters might find it a boon.

Have to say I really liked this handset when I got the chance to try it out at an LG launch. I feel a little sorry for it!

I have this phone, and its the best phone ive had so far. I have had the new LG KF600 and this one is better by far. The battery life is a lot better, I can type well on it (but I do work on keyboards for a living so its an easy use). Yes the internet is a little slow but the words are clear, also the camara is good ive took great pictures, the only down fall is it doesnt have a light and make sure you dont shake too much when taking the photo. You cant get many accessories for this phone, as I am finding it hard to get a case for it. Its a bargen for the price I got it for on the orange website for 㿨. I would recomend it to anyone who is a big texter like me.

here, you can also use the touch pad for texting,


just press the button that doesnt have a number on it on the touch screen and there you have it

I have this phone and have since christmas 2008 and it sucks, it turns itself off in the middle of texts, when its sending messages when i'm listening to th music player, so i have to listen to the songs individually. I've literally just charged it till it's full and its nearly flat again.


My phone reset itself! I use my phone as an alarm and nearly missed an important lecture, it has its days when it's brilliant but most o the time its more of a burden, like i cant find the pic i took for my boyfriend, yet its my display picture!!!


either mines faulty or there's something wrong with this phone, and i'm not the only one whose found this with the KS360
