You guys are funny going on about copys the 1st ever slide phone was released in 2000 maybe even lat 1999 it was by Siemens (SL10) And was alsot the 1st phone to have a colour screen. Although it was red,yellow and blue pixels. So if anyone of these "Slide Phones" are original designs its Siemens.
I don't know why people think this is an exact copy of Samsung's D500, If you see the model name, it's obvious that this is part of the 'S' series; you can see some similarities with the S5100. Turn S5200 upside down, the shape becomes S5100. Just because its a slider and its black doens't mean its a rip off. If you see the Korean market, companies have quite the same size with similar form factors. Plus, these days, phone specs and capabilities are pretty much similar among companies, which results to identical size. I think this is a great design and definitely different from Samsung's D500.
You can hardly call Samsung innovators in design. The D500 was a direct copy of the Siemens SL55. Check out the Samsung D730 - it's so obviously influenced by the Motorola V600, V620 and V635. Just look at the keypad! Weren't Motorola the first to do the flip? I do like Samsung & LG but they are the phone equivalent of a Lexus - a lookalike packed with features to make up for the lack of design originality.
I suggest if your like me (you like being blue-toothed mp3s, pics, etc.) then is suugestcyou search hard for the fone you want. this has evrything i need.. but the storage space is rubbish its about 20 full songs! thats total b.s
This phone IS almost identical to a D500. People on here are saying that it's better than a D500, that may be so, but if you think about it the D500 has been out for ages now and at that time it was released the D500 was the best. Now the D600 has been released with improved features which is 100 times better than this LG phone. If you have ever used an LG phone you would know that LG's and Samsung are very similar to use. I don't think this is a copy, but i do believe that the Samsungs are so much better.
Ok,so it's looks a bit like a samsung slider- and?Weren't siemens one of the first to pioneer the sliding form factor in the sl55,so samsung must have copied them huh?The same with the first clamshell phone,every manufacturer started churning them out,then the first camera phone,i could go on forever here,it's inevitable that other companies start bringing out phones that look and act like others...what's the bloody fuss about?
this is the best one i have seen so far but i am a bit confused does it take 3network sims
i think this phone is gr8, looks smart and has got good things on it, with a MP3 player, i think i mite just get this :)
This is real good phone guys. all specs of high end phone at very competetive price . this is first shot it seems from LG in pursuit of excellence to get in the top league. i am using this phone and very satisfed with its performance / features. This will be available in middle east shortly
NOW I HAVE THIS MOBILE BECAUSE I WORK in LGE,so not because iam there but that is true the most fantastic mobile i have seen in all my year of experience in this field
guys, it's a very common design in Korea!
They don't consider this design as a copy.
I have a D500 Samsung and this LG phone, what can I say? LG phone is much better: the quality , the sound, the MP3 player, Bluetooth... every thing is better. Even if the shape is quite the same, the design is definetly different. LG design is smart!
yo guys, is this for real from the LG or they are just making fun of themselves. so many functions and so bad functions they are, to bad. now none will buy this peace of c... and it is so sh.... that is so dum and so much f... plastic was spend to make many peaces of it.m...f... dorks came with this stupid f... idea for nothing.
has the site mistaken to have put a samsung mobile in LG slot????
Not a bad COPY i must say
emmm i work for lg and samsung is lg and sharp it loooks like there comeing out with copys
Every mobile "LG" release is a exact copy of SAMSUNG there designers must grow up an bring there own model so the others might copy them,
