Siper101, 12 Sep 2008This phone is amazing. I upgraded from a Nokia 6300, and to be frank, my last LG was the U600 ... morelol siper101 i just thought wat u said about the phone made me want to buy it even more and i also wont be blasting music from my phone cause i just dont do that. would the distortion thing affect the ringtone???
so how is the touchscreen thing - everyone?? is it easy to navigate -ive never had a touchscreen b4 and didnt plan on it and i just consider this one like a mini touchpad thing so it doesnt really count. do u use touch on the actual screen or just the mini toupad thing?
Does the slider has a lock, such that it will not open when we take this out from our pockets accidently...
I do think that this phone is very good. It has a beautiful colour display and the Keith haring themes make it even better, even if they are a bit weird. The screen is quite sensitive and the features are just right for playing around with. I do recommend that this is not really a good work phone, but it does have a document reader which has proved to be useful. One thing I love about the phone is the hand-writing recognition. It is very accurate, except for my n's, but it still works perfectly.
The camera on this phone works quite well, but it does take quite a long time to take a picture. The settings customizing is quite good. The flash, isn't really flash though. It is just like a record light as it stays on the whole time, not just at the point when you are taking a picture. It can get quite blinding.
The mp3 player is quite good, and it does use the touch-screen to its advantage here. Using your finger you can choose a point on a bar, and the song is fastfowarded or rewinded to that point, it does look very neat. The speakers are quite good and you can hear the sound from about 20 metres away. at it's highest. Also the FM Radio is quite good t listen to, but you need the headphone extra for that. Mine came with the phone, but I'm not sure if it does in other countries.
The extras are not the best part of the phone, as the memos are very short and you have to input the rates for the currency converter. The alarm works as it should, and so does the calculator. The calender can only have 100 dates in at a time, including birthdays and others, so this is another reason why it may not be good for work. It also has a world clock.
The games and applications work well, as the touch-screen adapts to a normal phones buttons. The games work seamlessly, especially the pre-set ones that involve the touch screen, and so do the applications. The permissions for the applications and games cannot be changed so you have to say that applications are allowed to connect to the internet every time they want to connect. This can get quite tedious.
The browser works quite well, but it cannot download large pages, which is slightly annoying. I downloaded Opera Mini, because of this, but I have had a lot of trouble with connecting it to the GPRS in my area. This probably isn't the phone, but my area instead. One more thing. if you wanted the LG KF600 for it's EDGE, check that it is available in your area, because i wanted it for it's EDGE, and it is not available to my area, with Orange.
Well, I hope I have helped anyone. I think this is a very good and fun phone and the small touchscreen gives a very good vibe. It is very clever in some places how they have used it, and that's why I love it.
got this back in march, loved it, never dropped it, hell you can say its like new...that was until about 5 weeks or so ago...when it stopped charging, then i got it back from attempeted repair from lg, they said it cannot be fixed as it is beyond economical repair due to user damage.
i would strongly advise against this phone!

And for the winner,Sony E,i cant believe it!!!
Best in phisical design;it has the crappiest design in all brands.And i find it very hard to operate.Harder than samsung.
And what about nokia?It isn't among ''the rest''.
U should find a better comparison betwen brends.

Any help would be appreciated :)
ps.: LG Vs Samsung; According to JDPower and associates
LG is far more better than Samsung, Oh Yeah :)
This phone is amazing. I upgraded from a Nokia 6300, and to be frank, my last LG was the U600 which i had for like... 2 weeks and decided that I didnt like 3 so i really didnt know what to expect. Alot of reviewers are commenting alot on how it looks like the samsung soul. Well.. I hate that phone, and the KF600 is far beyond that. The first thing I immediatly noticed about the KF600 is its amazing screen. Come'on. You get a touchscreen phone and think 'this will be scratched to buggery in less than a week' but seriously, this is not the case with the venus. Also, its amazingly easy to navigate, as I said ive had a nokia for ages, so I didnt expect to find this easy to pick up. In less than 10 minutes, my contacts were in, my profile was set, and i'd started texting people. The slide on the phone is so simple, rather than snapping, it has a sense that it's gliding smoothly up and down. When the d500 came out alot of people commented on how the phone wobbled after a few weeks of general use, I cant see this being a problem here. Also - the guy who said the phone book seems like a seperate application, your settings are wrong, I havent got a problem with it. The names show up when calling and texting no problem. The only moderatly negative thing I can say about the KF600 is it could have done with a better loudspeaker. The quality is OKAY, but when you turn it up you do start to notice alot of distortion. Fortinatly, im not a chav, and I wont be blasting any crap "Music" from the back of a bus, so thats not going to be a problem for me.

Themes - only pre installed/default ones, there are no thmes on eD2k network neither on web, so if you like different themes, and ringtones for sms'es then I wouldn't suggest that you buy this phone.
My GF likes KF600 as well but she wouldn't want to have one for the same reason. She uses Sony Ericsson W550i and every day (I'm not exaggerating) seriously every day she has a different theme on, because themes availability for SE on net is just mind blowing.
From the brands I have used so far (Nokia, Motorola, SE, LG) I would say that SE has, in majority most customisable phones. But I maybe wrong, maybe other brands are even more customisable.
