LG GD550 Pure review: Slide and go
Looks fantastic, oldschool or not. If it wasn't for iffy camera and some lacking features... And a bit ovepriced too.

No way is this a phone for me, however its ideal for my parents.
Simple is GOOD for them (& by extension me too, as they don't keep asking me how to do stuff).
They want a solid phone thats going to last a few years, with the ability to make calls, send a few texts, maybe take a basic picture, all without confusing them.
I like (for them) the big buttons, the ring/silent switch, the slide to lock everything, the simple interface.
But 200 euro is a bit pricey, maybe in 6 months to a year or so or with a cheap contract...

Thanks for the review, I was interested in this one. Too bad about the camera, especially because 6700 slide and Hazel apparently have better ones...

What happened to testing audio quality with connected headphones?
Thanks for your reviews! I enjoy reading them ALL O_O :P

Additionally, since when is a 'very basic UI' a con? Just because a phone isn't overloaded with features doesn't mean that it isn't good for the target group it is meant for. Not everyone wants or needs a smartphone.
what happened to you? You used to be very objective when reviewing phones!
