I finally went out and bought the KF600 last Monday, after reading/watching all the reviews on the net. I must say I am impressed with phone. The phone feels solid in hand. The sliding mechanism is smooth and sturdy. I will write about the screens and wallpaper settings first in this review (I like to change wallpapers, A LOT!).
Both the KF600 screen's are very nice and can display vivid colours. You can set the screen dimmer to save battery but only on the main screen.
The Keith Haring themes are very funny indeed and really gives the phone a youthful appearance. It is definitely targeted at the youth market. But I doubt there will be any additional themes available if you want more. The reason is simple, LG phones are not as popular as the other brands so themes that are made particularly for the KF600 will be rare or none at all.
I can stretch a picture to cover both screens as wallpapers. The picture will look like it was cut in two and displayed on both screens in two pieces. But GIF files cannot be stretched so it is only displayed on the main screen. The GIF animation is still functional though. The phone cannot display flash files (.swf) so you can't use them as wallpapers. My brother told me I could convert flash files to GIF files so I will check that out. I would really like to put some interesting animation on my screen and since my brother is a web designer, I will seek his advice on this. One more thing, large GIF files cannot be used as wallpapers at all.
You can calibrate the InteractPad and assign four shortcuts to the homescreen on the InteractPad. Too bad I can't assign a calculator shortcut to the homescreen as I use a phone's calculator all the time.
Alright, thats my review for part one. I'll write about the other functions later.
In my instruction/manual is written that KF600 can handle up to 2GB
hello i would like to know if this phone can handle up to 8gb memory card, can anyone answer me asap please
Somebody asked me if i also had Shine, and how would i compare them:
i like it i wish i could have one.the way its build its nice.planning to get one soon.
You can stretch photo to 2 screens. I haven't tried using flash as a background, but one of themes, has a dolphin swimming in the background also in the background when you are in options, so i assume you can do that.
This is photo of my kf600 with picture (Outback from National Geographic) stretched to 2 screens.
Can I use flash files/Gif files as wallpapers and stretch them to cover both screens?? Seriously thinking of buying it.
Photos: 2s to start up camera; 3s to find focus; another couple seconds to save it;
And by the way camera sucks battery life straight out :)
// btw i'm not hater i like this mobile //
em.. i surf a lot of website (forum) and most of them say that they need quite long time to take/save a photo... is it true??
Update: I can confirm that software has some issues - screen hangs sometimes when typing sms using handwriting recognition.
Easy fix is to close slider, start camera as it will un-hung the screen and then continue witting sms, which was stored in drafts when u have slide phone close.
Anybody knows if there's software update ready for this phone.
im thinking of getting either the kf600 or kf510. which 1 would be a better all round phone
lgkf600 is fine good phone freezes now and again due to non serious software problem issue with sms in early comment due to network not phone and im not going to comment on how loud its loud speaker is because personally i believe you should use headphones and not the loud speaker to listen to music as i hate being disturbed by peoples poor taste in music.
soooo headphones good!!! phone good!!
When i get new mobile i fully charge and fully discharge battery couple of times. According to many ppl it was a necessity with NiMh batteries not with Li-On or Li-Pol, but it is always good to format your new battery.
Also battery life depends on signal strength, so if you have week signal your battery will drain quicker.
Got the LG KF600 a few days ago on Contract. Great phone but the battery life isnt good. Only lasts me a day (not even that really, am going to take it back because it might just be the battery which is faulty. Other that that a lovely phone.
Loving this phone. Got it on upgrade a few weeks ago. Waited a few weeks after it was released due to problems I had with my old chocolate phone a few yrs ago.Top phone.Upgrade of memory needed but other than that no problems what so ever.(Touch wood)Only thing I do miss is a zoom on the camera. Dare say the auto focus will work just as well.
I've recently got the LG fne. Well i think the fne is great the loudness of the fne is quite good depends on the ring tone used. The only problem with me is the fone had frooze twice, but that's just me. Well all in all the fone's great and i think you will love having a fne like this too =]
