LG TU500

 

A brushed metal face, matching metallic keypad and sleek, clamshell construction give LG's latest mobile phone an attractive yet conservative appeal. ...

HSDPA connectivity, pocketable form factor, sturdy construction, external stereo speakers

Limited internal memory, memory card not included, mediocre camera

If you want a slim, lightweight phone that can access Telstra's Next G content portal but is otherwise light on frills, the TU500 is a good candidate. Heavy multimedia users should look elsewhere.

The TU500 isn't going to win any fashion awards, but underneath its pedestrian skin lurks a highly capable Next G phone.

Decent talk time ; Solid construction ; Loud speakers ; Next G capable

Low internal memory ; Doesn't meet claimed standby battery life ; Subjectively ugly

The LG TU500 is a respectable all round phone, but for the price it costs you only need to pay a little more money to get a better specified phone. The phone comes useful PIM applications, a decent media player, a complete messaging suite with email...

I have had this phone for about 1.5yrs. Yes it's ugly, but it is also durable. It was also the only next G phone at the time with a car kit.

Loud and tough.

Texting is a joke. 5 sec intervals between letters on the same key! The cd that came with the kit is rubbish. Cant get rid of the Telstra advertising. Had to buy my own memory card.
