LG KF600 review

N ot so long ago, LG was mainly known because of their consumer Electronics such as refrigerators and television screens. LG are slowly increasing their popularity on the mobile phone market and are gradually conquering a market share. In particular the KG800 was LG's successful model; with its touchscreen, instead of physical buttons, as a novelty for operating the menu. What's obvious about LG phones is the importance of the design. LG cell phones are known to look neat, and LG recently joined forces with Prada, resulting in the LG Prada, to make people that are interested in style, go for LG too.

First impression with the LG KF600 phone

The LG KF600 comes in a compact box. The main functions of the cell phone are visible on the box with a subtle display of a musical note, a radio and a camera. Furthermore, the box is matte black with a magnetic cover. You'll find the following products standard in the box: a battery charger, a headset, a data cable and a user's guide with a small software CD. The LG KF600 mobile phone has a shiny black front with dual screens. A common TFT monitor with below it a small touchscreen. The buttons are not visible at first, they appear once you slide open the device. In addition, on the side of the mobile phone, the volume buttons are found to adjust the volume, as well as two short keys for the MP3 player and the camera.

LG KF600 cell phone features a dual screen

A feature on the LG KF600 that stands out and that is pointed out in LG's communication about this cell phone is the Dual-screen. As mentioned before, a small touchscreen is found below the common TFT screen, which displays selection possibilities for the menu you're in, and these vary per menu item. You will standard find a number of quick buttons here; the menu button is one of them. If you want to take a picture these buttons will change and you can choose from settings, capture, back and sun, to adjust the contrast. The second screen makes the device truly more user-friendly, although the touchscreen sometimes takes its time to respond. Especially when you scroll through the menu quickly or if you select a function from the bottom row, you will notice that the screen can't keep up with your speed. Using the normal number keys, however, will solve the problem. Furthermore the screen is shiny which makes it a tad harder to read the screen while outdoors in broad daylight.
