the price is soo good ^_^ its really good for a phone like this 1 ~
to me...im more of the people that likes taking picture...so this isnt really a good phone for + its doesnt have flash ~ and does not have 3G =/
but im 13 this year ~ thinking of buying a new phone ~ so this is not a bad choice :)
Just to enlighten some of you, this is a great phone for young people. As a 19 year old girl myself, Iíve always loved a side slide with full QWERTY keyboard phone and I have just purchased a Samsung ísidekickí phone last month. However, upon finding out the release of this phone, I quickly hit the phone shop to buy it out right for a reasonable price of AUD199! What drew my attention was the colour. I have always been a fan of the colour red, but never really got the chance to buy a good red coloured phone so far. Upon 2 days of owning this phone, itís been serving me well with its functions and all. However, there are some drawbacks..
1. Video: The video playback seems to be lagging by 1-2 seconds. It makes your viewing displeasurable and weird.
2. Tools: By having explored Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson phones in the past, this phone has given me a lilí of a hassle by not being able to have a direct shortcut to the Calendar. Iím a heavy scheduler and constantly use my phone to refer to the calendar. And this phone doesnít offer that. Hence, I need to go through the main menu Ė> tool Ė>organiser Ė> calendar, JUST to check my exam date!
3. Files: Somehow, I canít seem to move my file (eg. music, image etc) to a specific folder. This phone only moves file to either External or Internal Main Folder, but not to the specific folder if you want to get things organized. I find this pathetic as you have to scroll down to a whole bunch of photos before you can find the one you really want. It seems very disorganized sometimes, especially with all your files scattered around.
4. Start Up: The start up seems to take much longer as expected.
5. File Transfer: When connected to my MacBook with the data cable, I canít seem to detect my MicroSD memory card, which means I canít tranfer my data directly to my External Memory. I have to go through the hassle of transferring data to the Internal Memory first, then eject the cable, and then move all my data from the Internal and External Memory Card. And this process repeats for numerous times as the phone only offers 15mb of Internal Memory, until I have transferred all my data. What a hassle!
Apart from that, it is a great simple phone in itself. With an affordable price like AUD199, we canít expect a really high end phone that gives us all the features that may satisfy all the consumers. However, I hope LG can look into all these for the sake of maintaining their standard and to gain our trust.
Hope you all find this review useful. Cheers!

I've had the LG KS360 for a few weeks now and after having the SE K960i for 6 months, I definetely like this one. The LG KS360 has a great lit QWERTY keyboard (with raised buttons) but after doing predictive texting for awhile, you sort of get used to that style but if you know touch typing, you get used to it. The sliding keyboard has a lovely solid feel and really handy when answering a phone instead of pressing 2 buttons to unlock. Drawback is battery consumption - by the end of 2 days it needs a charge. (Have to watch the battery bar because it goes down fast on the last bar.) But it charges quickly even if you only have a little time. Also, I tried to bluetooth my phone book on over to the LG KS360 but it wouldn't accept, not even a single entry so I had to put them in individually. Very tedious. Getting onto the internet is easy but since I don't have an internet package, I keep that to a minimum. Choice of several alarms and nice variety of sounds to use. No flash. No software. Comes with USB cable and AC charger. I like that there is a cursor choice or press a number on the keyboard - so if the phone is closed, you can still choose your options via the up/down button or slide out keyboard and press the number option of whatever function you want. One can read their txting as a threaded conversation or single entry. Cool Keith Haring themes. Good speaker. Programable favourites. Simple functions. Easy to use. Highly recommended for no frills fun.
