LG KS360 review

 

REVIEW: A budget phone for the social networking age

Slide-out Qwerty keyboard ; Messaging-centric design ; Touchscreen dialling ; Good-sized 2.4-inch display ; Great camera ; Good quality music player ; MicroSD card expansion ; Fast access social networking options ; Solid design and build

Keyboard can be fiddly to use ; Keys could be better marked ; Touchscreen limited to dialling only ; Average quality 2-megapixel camera ; No 3G connectivity ; Low spec browser ; Basic music player user interface ; No 3.5mm headphone socket

Budget mobile with slide-out Qwerty keyboard and touchscreen dialling may appeal to heavy-duty messagers, but it lacks punch in other feature areas

LG KS360 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

The feel of the KS360 is one of a good quality phone, well built and interestingly designed. The keypad works well, but there are a few quirks with text

Great screen, good QWERTY keypad, some interesting details

Navigation options can be confusing, some text entry problems, limited connectivity

LG did warn us that the phone might be a little slow because it was a pre-production sample, but encouragingly we didn’t encounter any problems. The touchscreen utilisation is better than in previous phones from LG and is pretty straight-forward to...

LG brings a fairly basic handset to the party, but squeezes in a full QWERTY slide out keyboard.

Popular with the teenage crowd it's aimed at, the LG KS360 comes in blue and pink (pink edition is exclusive to Orange), and features a slide-out Qwety keyboard as well as social networking functions.…

LG KS360 Mobile Phone

 

This mobile phone has the back sliding to the right to reveal a full keyboard, great for those of us not exactly fast as multiple presses of the numeric type keyboards to send a text message, mind you the keys are red on red with both white and black...

It is 10x4.5x1.5 closed and the second figure increases to 8cm when slid open. The weight is 109grams. It is a red sandwich with the front and the back black with this red area in the middle. The screen is 5x3.7cm. Below the screen are nine buttons,...

LG KS360

 

This phone from LG is ideal for those who love texting. It has a full QWERTY keypad that slides out horizontally as well as an accelerometer, so it can tell which way up you're holding it.

The keypad is user-friendly and it has an accelerometer.

The touch screen can only be used for dialing and the camera doesn't have a flash or autofocus.

LG KS360 review

 

The LG KS360 has a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, but is this enough to compensate for the lack of 3G?…

LG has found room for a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard while maintaining a slim frame

The lack of 3G makes for a sluggish internet experience

While we applaud the way LG has squeezed in a full QWERTY keyboard, it is not enough to disguise the shortcomings.

LG KS360

 

On the slide?

LG's valiant attempt at bringing QWERTY to the masses isn't a complete success but when you consider the low price point it's relatively easy to overlook the minor shortcomings of the KS360

LG KS360 review

 

We review the LG KS360, LG's first handset with a Qwerty keyboard, featuring a decent two-megapixel camera and touch screen dialling

Super Qwerty keyboard ; 2.4in QVGA is large and bright ; 2MP camera performs better than expected ; Touchscreen keypad is fast and responsive ; Intuitive UI ; microSD slot

No 3.5mm headphone socket ; WAP 2.0 browser unnecessarily antiquated ; 15MB of inbuilt memory is stingy

The KS360 achieves exactly what it sets out to do. If you're seeking a simple, well made, low cost handset to make the most of your messaging look no further.
