LG Shine KE970 review

 

Shimmering good looks and brushed metal minimalism

Mirrored and brushed metal design ; Fine 2-megpiaxel camera array ; Swappable memory

No 3G ; Video playback is average ; Mirror attracts smudges

A very capable sliderphone, and its few flaws are likely to matter little once you've been seduced by its good looks

LG Shine KE970 'Titanium' mobile phone

 

The LG Shine KE970, or Titanium, is a very stylish mobile phone with a slick 2.2in screen that doubles as a mirror.

No one could claim that the LG Shine KE970 isn't a gorgeous and fantastically styled phone, but its beauty goes only skin deep. Usability is beyond awkward and we’d have liked to have seen some 3G functionality in such a high-end phone.

LG's mirror phone looks as good as you do

Looks great and feels fab but the crazy scroller aside there's little here to tempt gamers

LG KE970 Shine

 

How do you trump the success of the Chocolate? If you're LG, go back to the drawing board and design yet another striking phone, the Shine…

The handset is meticulously constructed and feels and handles like a phone with premium status

The Shine is high maintenance. Your considerable buffing skills will constantly be called into action to keep it grease free

LG sets the fashion phone standard even higher with the Shine.

Looks aren't everything, but they can sure shift a mobile phone. The Shine, then, has all the hallmarks of an instant classic. Its stunning silver looks are sure to grab attention - and the first question isn't 'what can it do?' but 'where can I get...
