LG Chocolate phone (LG-KG800) mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

If you are looking for a phone that's just a phone and one that you will be happy to swap out in 12 months time then this is a great chav/fashion statement

No buttons, Bluetooth, tri-band etc…

… while sleek it’s a bit of a bling statement, digital camera is poor, smudges easily, no memory card slot

While the phone does do a lot of the things that you want it to, it really is a case of style over function - although be wary of its easy smudgeability.

LG KG800 Chocolate review

 

Classy, yes. But is it a case of chic before practicality?

Great at what it does

Lacks the extras of some rivals

A phone that trades on its good looks rather than its compelling functionality

LG Chocolate KG800

 

Phones are all about style and fashion right? LG certainly seems to think so.

LG KG800 Chocolate review

 

We're not quite sure what possessed LG to name the KG800 'Chocolate', but it is easily the best-looking phone in this test.

LG KG800 review

 

The LG KG800 - aka the Chocolate - is undeniably a beautiful piece of industrial design - but is it any good as a mobile phone?

Stunning design ; Touch sensitive keypad ; Cons ; Lack of memory ; 1.3 megapixel camera

Lack of memory ; 1.3 megapixel camera

A stylish phone with a premium feel, excellent interface and 5-megapixel camera. Touchscreen tools are fun, if not functional

LG KG810 Chocolate

 

It won the Mobile Choice Fashion Phone of The Year award, but the LG Chocolate phone franchise has only just begun.…

A very elegant, slimline design and a lucid-to-use chequered keypad

The touch keys are just for show while the capable music player is made redundant by the limited 128MB of internal memory

Lacks the impact and sexiness of the KG800 Chocolate phone but the K810 nevertheless flaunts a certain panache.

LG KG810 Chocolate Phone

 

Before the appearance of the Chocolate phone it's fair to say that LG wasn't at the forefront of the public's mobile consciousness. With moderate success coming from its prosaic 3G clamshells on the 3 network, the Korean outfit was hardly associated...

LG KG800 "Chocolate" phone

 

LG break from tradition to produce a handset that you might actually want

With the KG800 "Chocolate", LG are really punching above their weight. The fit and finish of this handset and the accessories around it is simply sublime. Would I get this handset over say the Nokia 8800 or the new Motorola Rzr K1? Certainly the 8800...

A Chocolate Phone : LG Chocolate Phone KG800 - in White!

 

This is not something to eat, in the early summer LG launched their black phone, now in late summer their white phone and I understand later in the year a shocking pink one is to follow.

The White Chocolate offering is not large in size but does make control easy. While there is a manual the getting started sheet should enable most to get up and running. It is 9x4.5x1.5cm and weights well under 100grams. The back slides down 3.5cm to...
