The LG KG800 was a project that the company had in mind, but Motorola had their new RAZR phones on the market, and Sony Ericsson had the Walkman theme.
LG made the chocolate phone to reduce Motorola's and Sony Ericsson's profits and customers.
I love this phone it's so cheap. I think the best place to get it is at Crazy Johns! those guys always do me a good deal and huge discounts. they even gave me a free mock hahah
This Phone is Really Cool and i must Assure
u this phone never let u down.This is really a sexy Phone
Overall.... Should i or shoudn't i buy this phone!? It looks tempting!!!!!
I've had this phone for several months now ... and am considering a replacement.
There's no doubt about it's looks but even though I look after my phones it scratches very easily and soon looks shabby.
Problems with charging & text alerts being too quiet.
The alarm won't work if you have the phone switched off ?!? So you can't set it at night for the morning and then switch it off overnight. Crazy !
The capitals & lower case letters are the wrong way round when texting which makes it very annoying to scrole through all of the modes to get to the one you want: if you text a lot don't buy this phone (unless you use text-speak and no capitals).
The memory gets full really quickly - I only use the phone for making & receiving calls (unusual I know lol) but I do (try) to use the calender ... unfortunately after entering a few dates (birthdays, appointments etc) it gets full ! I've never had this before with a phone.
In summary: looks nice (initially) but too many annoying faults.
I reckon this phone is pretty good. The features are cool, the only dissapointing thing so far is that there's no loudspeaker which i think is a bit silly.
I have one question if anyon can help...
If i transfer a photo off the PC to my fone, is there any way i can put the photo as my wallpaper. When i go into the photo i have transferred on my phone, and i click on options...there is no option to display it as wallpaper.
The only photos i can display as wallpaper are those that i have taken with the camera on my phone.
If anyone can help, please e-mail me at

I work in the Telco industry and let me say that these are the most unreliable phones ever. Given, we sell loads of them but get stupid amounts back also. Don't waste your money on this atrocity. My rant is over now! Thanks for listening!
i like it ive got mine in barbie PINK an its brilliant but dunno how 2 get the flamin music on there other than dat its mint
in my oppinion this phone is awesome because it is beautifull.come on..it is a new phone,so great lookin' at this price..350 euro..what do u aspect?to be super performant?actually it is.it has that 1.3 mp camera,but if u want picture quality buy a nokia.it has mp3,mp4,etc..with great headphones.but if u want really good sound quality buy a sony ericsson w800...and so on..but it's better looking, smaller than most of those phones.if this phone would be as good as it looks..it would cost a fortune.so..for this money..(the price will go down) it is a perfect phone.i am happy with it, i love it!what dissappoints me..it hat i don't know how to install java on it..if anybody knows a way..please mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
i found that this site answered many of the questions that ppl posted on here. I think that many of the problems posted are malfunctions and faulty phones.
i think some ppl should do some more research on this phone and spend some more time figuring it out. It sounds like a good phone if it isnt faulty.
ps. THERE IS NO LOUDSPEAKER! you will find this and many other things out if you read the review on the site^^^^^
get this phone onli if u wanna make calls.. ringtone levels arent loud at all... not even clear.. i say my motorola E1000 mp3 quality is better than this... pictures wise,pretty ok,no too shabby.. but 1 fatal flaw,touch screen or pad (wadever that makes u happy) is too sensitive... this phone is kinda stupid also.. when listening to mp3.. after some time,the phones go into battery saving mode.. with the music still playing of course.. but when u touch the pad or screen or even the numbers.. it wont light up or respond... u have to press the side button below the on-off button to reactivate the phone...1 fatal flaw in this phone... get this phone for its beauty not for its function..
hey!i had the same problem with my one too!it would connect but then i couldn't hear the dialling tone or hear the person.but i exchanged the phone and this ones fine at the mo!the guy at carphone warehouse said that there was a faulty batch sent out to lots of stores!so get it exchanged!!but i find the phone ok!i like the touch pad and the camera is great!
Hey guys, im an Aussie Wit the Choccy and i rekn its awesome. im on the Virgin Mobile network and when buying i checked clearly the features on the phone....if you go to www.lge.com.au and look at the full specs of the phone u will see clearly that there is no loudspeaker....
actually you can use the KG800 with MAC as long as the O.S. is OSX 10.3 or higher. not only that but you don't need to install the bloody software
