LG Shine mobile phone - FIRST LOOK - Pocket-lint

 

Shiny, metal, large screen, 2 megapixel camera

We've seen dented models already, plenty of features but nothing extraordinary

The LG Shine is certainly shiny - you'll see we had difficulties with taking the photos on the stand floor.

LG Shine review

 

LG's sequel to the Chocolate is a metal-hewn slider with a mirrored screen. Can it flutter the hearts of fashionistas all over again?

The Shine is an object of beauty with a surprisingly good camera. Fiddly navigation aside, it’s perfect for fashionistas yearning for the next Chocolate

Review: LG Pink Shine phone | Absolute Gadget

 

We've been lured in by some of the pink products appearing on the market recently, but as we said in our last review they are always missing a couple of things. Finally our prayers have been answered and the LG Pink Shine comes with a mirror as standard!

Calls are clear when you're chatting away - the Shine is a good length and is set out so it's really easy to talk and hear your friends. The hang up button is also set away from your face so it won't be switched off by chunky earrings. In fact, the...

LG Shine Phone

 

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

LG Shine Review

 

As the name give it away the LG is most certainly shinny due to its mirrored front and silver finish. This certainly will raise a few glances if you parade ...

The LG Shine is a great feature phone but has sub standard connectivity options, including no 3G and poor PC software. However its applications support, screen and audio capabilities makes it a worthwhile purchase.

LG Shine Slide (KE970)

 

A GSM version of the popular and stylish LG Shine (KU970), the Shine Slide (KE970) is targeted at those on a budget who may not necessarily need 3G capabilities, but like the mirror-style design.

Stylish design, excellent display, solid user interface ;

Poorly designed keypad and controls, impossible to keep clean, proprietary headphone jack ;

All the usual PIM functions are available, including calendar, memo, stopwatch and alarm clock. There is also a voice recorder, and the 2-megapixel camera doubles as a video recorder. The camera itself takes decent quality photos; the included flash...
