GSMArena team, 14 December 2010

What’s better than a tasty Cookie? We’ll tell you what – two of those. The guest duet Cookie Lite T300 and Cookie 3G T320 have completely different designs but almost identical specifications. Both...

LG Optimus One P500 review: One and a half

LG Optimus One P500 review: One and a half

GSMArena team, 06 December 2010

The LG Optimus One may not be your average killer gadget, but it sports a tempting pricetag, solid build, a nice looking set of features and Android 2.2 Froyo. And with the Optimus One in your hand, you are free to mock and tease those...

GSMArena team, 3 December 2010

If you are reading this, chances are mobile phones are something between a mild addiction and a passion for you. It’s that time of year again and you might already be eyeing a phone to gift your loved one or – there we go – yourself...

Mobile phone display mega shootout: The full picture

GSMArena team, 29 November 2010

There are so many of them that it’s pretty hard to make up your mind. It all boils down to LCD vs. LED although this simple fact is easy to overlook. You can go ahead and blame it all on marketing but that’s one thing that just can’t be black or...

LG E900 Optimus 7 review: Lucky seven

GSMArena team, 09 November 2010

Windows Phone 7 is new territory for LG to conquer and the LG E900 Optimus 7 is their first pawn in the game. However “pawn” hardly describes the rich feature set of this player. LG has done its best to set the Optimus 7 apart...


LG GM360 Viewty Snap and GT400 Viewty Smile review: One for everybody

LG GM360 Viewty Snap and GT400 Viewty Smile review: One for everybody

GSMArena team, 20 September 2010

Today we got a special Viewty deal – two-for-the-price-of-one. The Snap and the Smile are nearly identical. One’s got a better camera, the other has 3G. It doesn’t look like a choice you’d want to make but let’s...

LG GD550 Pure review: Slide and go

GSMArena team, 07 September 2010

Big buttons and no questions asked. Believe it or not, that’s what some people still look for in a phone. The LG GD550 Pure is playing it safe – less tech inside means fewer things to go wrong. This is less a gadget for those who think old...

LG KM570 Cookie Gig review: Live at the arena

GSMArena team, 26 May 2010

Cookies just won’t stay put – they need more space to do their thing. The LG KM570 Cookie Gig steps right into LG Arena territory. With looks and camera to match and a Cookie-grade price tag, this phone is on track to go platinum. The Dolby...

LG GT540 Optimus review: Get smart, get started

GSMArena team, 28 April 2010

We can’t be sure but it does look like LG are still feeling the Android water before taking the plunge. Or they might just be too careful not to cast doubt on long standing commitments. You know, the soon-to-be Windows Phone 7. In any case though, their first Android attempts have enough in them to get us excited...

LG GD880 Mini review: Going minimalist

LG GD880 Mini review: Going minimalist

GSMArena team, 28 April 2010

The LG GD880 Mini is a looker. Quite the way to start really, but the Mini isn’t all about looks. From the hardware design through the high-res screen to the software – everything was crafted by skillful hands. Beauty is function in design – nothing is more complex than it needs to be, but beneath the deceptive simplicity there’s a myriad of functions...

LG GW620 review: Start-up package

GSMArena team, 1 April 2010

LG are not quite making Android headlines. Catching up with local rivals Samsung is obviously not the first thing on their mind. Not to mention that HTC are desperately out of reach. Alright, Android is not LG’s pet project...

MWC 2010: LG overview

GSMArena team, 16 February 2010

Now there's an interesting one for you - despite being a platinum sponsor of the MWC 2010, LG aren't among the exhibitors, for … um… cost-saving reasons. They've set up their own booth just outside the Barcelona Fair. Hope it fits their...

LG GW300 review: No-frills messaging

GSMArena team, 05 January 2010

The LG GW300 is quite a rare bird: it packs a full QWERTY keyboard and looks like a BlackBerry handset, but has a completely different line of business. Even if it was designed with teens and tweens in mind...

LG BL20 New Chocolate review: Bittersweet Noir

LG BL20 New Chocolate review: Bittersweet Noir

GSMArena team, 10 December 2009

The Chocolate revival is no news and the LG BL20 New Chocolate is not a headliner in the sense of the unique and inspired BL40. But we’re still about to have another sugar-coated meeting with an extraordinary handset, fresh off the LG design board...

LG BL40 New Chocolate review: Chef’s best

GSMArena team, 29 October 2009

It was handsets like the original Chocolate that put LG on the map. But simply playing with the big boys was never going to be enough. It takes creativity to outsmart and outdo some formidable rivals. LG never shied...

LG GD510 Pop review: Mobile pop culture

GSMArena team, 22 October 2009

It looks like LG have been playing their own version of will it blend. There's no need to tell you they're not playing for fun - they're rather trying to squeeze some more cash off a couple of hot-selling handsets. So, here's the deal. Get your blender...

LG GW520 review: A wholesome Cookie

GSMArena team, 03 September 2009

QWERTY is how the Cookie crumbles and LG are quite keen to build on a winning concept. And they sure didn’t work themselves to the bone. When you’ve got a Best Handset nominee (LG KS360) and a mid-range bestseller (LG KP500)...

LG GD910 review: Tick-tock, tick-tock...

GSMArena team, 07 August 2009

If you see someone having a chat on their wristwatch you may decide they’ve lost contact with the mothership. Well, it beats us what you’d think when the mothership calls back. But maybe this little personality test will help...

LG GD900 Crystal review: Crystal clear

GSMArena team, 23 July 2009

When talking about good design it's usually all about placing the right elements in the right places. And in the rare cases when an R&D team actually comes up with something innovative, they usually reserve it for a 2000 buck handset like the Motorola Aura...

GSMArena team, 26 May 2009

If a phone can get away with looking like a dummy phone, it’s art. Let’s see. You wouldn’t want to touch the LG Crystal. At least a couple of minutes you’ll just sit back and admire. OK, you’ll eventually start...

GSMArena team, 24 April 2009

One of the most exciting handsets the season - the LG KM900 Arena - returns to our office and this time it is going to stay a bit longer. After getting off to a flying start in both sales and reviews the Arena certainly...

GSMArena team, 16 February 2009

The LG booth is a definite must-see at this year's Mobile World Congress. The crowd that it gathers is hardly a surprise, considering that the Korean company announced a number of rather hot devices. The main star at the booth is our namesake - the LG KM900 Arena...

LG KP500 Cookie review: Grab a bite

GSMArena team, 30 January 2009

It almost feels unfair of LG to give the KP500 a name that's so hard to say no to. The Cookie scent seems to have inspired a craving already and LG are hoping to have you coming back for more. A genuinely affordable touchscreen, a very decent specs sheet, and fun and friendly interface...
