Had this phone for just over 2 months and I'm sick of it.
It was the first phone I've ever bought soley on looks..and I won't be doing it again! There are so many things wrong with it, and it is extremely lacking in functions! Even the shiny exterior which once lured me in is dull, due to all the scratches, which are not from misuse, just everyday use.. The touchpad is fun for a while, but then goes "crazy" in warmer temperatures, looking forwards to the winter when my fingers are frozen, see if the touchpad works then! Also the up key seems to freeze a lot.. As does the whole handset at times. The predictive text is useless, and it periodically forgets words so you have to keep adding them. My photo album is currently only letting me show 10 pictures, yet in my picture folder it displays over 60, but you have to access them individually. The phone call quality is appalling, sometimes it's broken, yet shows a full single, other times it sounds as if the volume is on setting one when it's infact on setting five, the highest, and at other times it's just silent. Another annoying thing, but not a fault as such is you can't run the mp3 player in the background, so you have to exit it if you recieve a text or such.
I complained about it today, I have to send it off and then they are replacing it.. With the same model, I'm thrilled. Note sarcasm.
It did look nice though, and it does catch peoples attention, but what use is that really? For me the novelty wore off after a few hours.
regarding the looks..it's the most a man could want from a phone but it has his disadvantages..and now...i have a question..can i insert an mp3 sound as a tone for the messagea??please help me!!!
Hi, I think my earphone volume is too low... I set the maximum, but I think its still low... Anyone have this problem?
Anyway, I think the phone is great for less than $250,00. For more than this, you get a Sony W800, that is way better than this.
A little tip for you all:
This phone is known in the industry as 'chocolate'. Many people ask for KG800 but it is secretly referred to as 'chocoalte' by those in the industry who are in the know.
the choclate thats not make you fat,cool and sexy niffty thing but no memory card,came with 2 batt,and the rest of stuff, but nothing special at all
i luv it, luv it, luv it!!!!!i rli want it in pink tho, n e 1 no wen it out?????????????
hi iv had the lg kg800 for roughly a month now and there is a slight problem. because the phone is touch sensitive, when i leave it in my bag or pocket or even faced downwards, and it is closed and touch screen is on automatic lock, for some reason when i slide the phone back open to use it, the phone goes crazy and automatically presses keys, even though i am not pressing them. this usually goes on from about a minute to sometimes five or six minutes.
does anyone else share the same problem?
I have the phone with Verizon in the US. And there is a micro SD card slot on the phone. It's on the same side as the "end" button.
i find the lg choc very sexy and enjoy sliding it open,and touching it! does anyone agree with me?
Who on earth thought the lg choc had a memory card slot they obviously havent got this phone, or they are inserting the memory card elsewhere!!!
well I would love to know how jp managed to slot a memory card into the lg seeing as it doesnt have a memory card slot!! weetard
i dont understand, it tastes nothing like chocolate.........OW my teeth hurt
Hello all after toying around with my piece of chocalate for 2 weeks i have found some cons and some pro's
its shiney black apperance
A nice big screen for a small phone
Touch Pad lights up in a nice rose red and the keypad lights up but in a faint white
The MP3 player is average but not as good as mp3 player i like the visual equalizer 2 bad its a not moving to the music you are playing
It's easy to connect to your pc with the supplied usb cable its just like using a usb a flash drive
Average camera with single lED Flash take some nice pictures in well lit areas, although its very sensitive to movements
No FM Radio even though i don't listen to the radio :)
Small Flash Memory 128mb enough to store about 30 mp3s
Fingerprint magnet iam always cleaning it
Screen is not as clear as the motorollas
I find when the phone becomes warm while in my hands the touch buttons have a mind of their own anyone else experience this
Supplied software isn't user friendly
does anyone know how to get music from the computer to the cell phone? do you need to buy a cable or something? please tell me. ty
Touch screen sucks when your in the car is shaking,and then you're Chocolat is a bit difficult to handle
