LG GW300 review review -

 

Full-featured Facebook app, excellent keyboard, 3.5mm audio jack

Glitch-ridden email system, no Wi-Fi or 3G internet so webpages load very slowly

LG GW300 review: No-frills messaging

 

The LG GW300 is quite a rare bird: it packs a full QWERTY keyboard and looks like a BlackBerry handset, but has a completely different line of business. Even if it was designed with teens and tweens in mind...

Quad-band GSM support ; 2.4" 256K-color TFT display of 320 x 240 pixel resolution ; Four-row QWERTY keyboard ; 2 megapixel fixed focus camera ; Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP ; Standard 3.5mm audio jack ; 15 MB internal memory ; Hot-swappable microSD card...

No 3G or Wi-Fi ; Camera has no auto focus or flash ; Video recording no good at QCIF resolution ; No DivX/Xvid video support ; No office document viewer ; Facebook is the only available social networking app

Social networking services are all the rage these days and mobile phone makers have duly noticed that. The LG KS360 was among the first devices of the mobile social networking breed targeted specifically at the younger ones among us

LG GW300 Review

 

It´s small things that make us happy and feeling good about life... or so the Wiseman said. With the current review we are neither trying to contest the advantages of having a proper web browser on your handset, nor make a cult of feature phones. Let´s...

LG GW300

 

Its price and features make it an impressive phone

Good design, sturdy build, comfortable keypad, good audio quality, multitasking, well priced

Average camera quality, unimpressive web browser

LG GW300

 

But where other recent LG designs have impressed us, the GW300 really does not. Closely resembling the two-year-old BlackBerry Curve 8300 in terms of specification, the GW300 seems dated before it even gets to market.

LG GW300

 

Very long battery life, normally 1week before it needs charging ; Colour screen which can either be Black or white ; 3 Power Save Settings ; Fully Keypad, no more stabbing the screen to get the correct letter whilst texting ; Built in MP3 Player, no...

Zoom for camera is very difficult to work, could do with being intergrated with keypad nipple
