A straight no-nonsense handset, LG KE500 blends clean styling with decent multimedia. It doesn't pretend to outShine and outsweet its haughty siblings, but still has enough to offer: neat sliding design, a 2 MP camera, memory card slot and FM radio.

Key features

  • Neat styling
  • 2 MP camera with LED flash
  • 55 MB of onboard memory
  • microSD memory card slot
  • Very fast menu navigation
  • Music player and FM radio
  • Flight mode
  • Bluetooth with A2DP profile
  • Bluetooth messaging
  • USB Mass Storage
  • GPRS and EDGE class 10
  • Headset with a 3.5 mm jack adapter and volume control in the main package

Main disadvantages

  • Display is hardly legible under direct sunlight
  • More refined materials would've suited the handset better
  • Memory card is not hotswappable
  • No indication of missed calls
  • Video recording at 176 x 144 pixels only
  • No email client

The South Korean maker has always put special emphasis on design. The new mid-tier LG KE500 is an attempt to cater to budget-minded, yet style-sensitive mobile users.
