LG GT505 review

 

LG's hardware has potential, but the GT505 is hamstrung by a lack of bundled applications and external memory.

LG GT505 Review

 

"The LG GT505 has 3G and Wi-Fi, so you should be able to keep up with your friends' latest activities on Facebook with relative ease."

This is the LG GT505. It measures 107mm tall by 54.5mm wide by 11.8mm deep and it weighs just 98 grams. The LG GT505 has a rear facing 5-megapixel camera with an incredibly small photo light that probably won't do much to illuminate a dark room, but we...

Decent styling, small size, good camera

LG GT505 review

 

We review the LG GT505, a mid-range affordable touchscreen handset with an impressive roster of connectivity options

Decent autofocus camera ; Interface suited to resistive touchscreen ; Covert stylus

UI starting to feel a tad clumsy ; Faces harsh competition from low-cost Android handsets ; Limited widgets

The LG GT505 takes the blueprint made popular by handsets like the LG Cookie and adds in a better camera and superior connectivity options, but it's now facing harsh competition from the emerging low-end Android devices.

LG's GT505 could have been quite the competitor for the CorbyPRO except for the few quirks.

LG GT505 Review

 

The LG GT505 is a device that strikes the golden medium and delivers a decent set of functions at an affordable price. The interesting thing about the phone is it´s one of the few handsets by LG that take advantage of the so-called Wisepilot navigation...

LG GT505 Review

 

LG GT505 fails to impress as a good mid-range multimedia phone, due to a poor quality loudspeaker and the lack of a quality camera lens, leaving a lot to be desired at a price of Rs. 17,000.

Ships with scratch proof LCD sticker, 5MP camera with auto-focus & LED flash, Wi-Fi & A-GPS with Wisepilot Navigation software

Sluggish touchscreen interface, Poorly built loudspeaker, Lack of quality camera lens for video recording
