LG Chocolate Platinum KE800
LG, the well known brand for electronics from Korea, now entered in most popular mobile market with some good phones and popular chocolate series phones. Phone is completely stylish and fashionable with adequate good features. Now I will discuss its features with some advantages and disadvantages also.
Now have a look on its design...
This phone has a high quality metal finish with stylish flip design and dimension measured as 95 x 46 x 17.5 mm, with 95gm of total weight. Thickness is about 17.5mm so that it is not in slim category but can be consider as medium design and due to its flip technology, its length also slightly less than average 100mm size. Screen size is about 240 x 320 pixels, 2.0 inches, 30 x 40 mm, and resolution is 256k colors. It is a average screen resolution but not bad at all. Important feature in design also contain touchpad for navigation and you will get more fun in navigation.
Phone has a sufficient internal memory for massages, contacts and java applications with about 60 MB shared memory. Phone also supports micro SD card but maximum capacity is only 2 GB. So if you are a fond of all types of music and wants to store large DATA than it won't be going to provide adequate memory size or support. This phone is some older released in 4th quarter of 2006 so that in that period 1 GB memory was big matter. But now the time is for beyond 10 GB and 1 GB is insufficient but due to its design this phone is equally popular at present also.
As connectivity features this phone has a Bluetooth, GPRS, EDGE and USB support. But there is no 3G and no Wi-Fi connectivity.
It has average 2 Megapixel camera and there is no mean for keeping it because in digital photography 2 MP camera is not sufficient. It is only for formality purpose. But as per quality purpose there should be better camera with autofocus and flash. This camera has autofocus and flash but as per resolution it is normal camera.
Phone also has a FM radio but here also failed to provide better stereo FM radio, be satisfied with its mono sound. Music player is OK but here also failed to compete with excellent walkman from sony ericsson. If you are planning to buy it for music purpose than this is not for as per your requirements. And if you wants more fashionable and solid body phone than it is for you.
Here it has average Standard battery, Li-Po 800 mAh and talktime is about 2 hours, very bad back-up you can get from any phone. So if you want better back-up time than search for other phone. I always faced problem with power back-up from LG phones and that is a big problem with LG phones. They seriously need to resolve this problem for better people's satisfaction.
Over all good stylish phone but lack of many important features. Battery back-up is very bad, look and style is very good. Over all it is average phone but not recommended by me.
An interesting handset here, this is the improved version, or more luxurious version if you like, of the popular LG 'Chocolate' phone. It was equipped with a better camera (2MP instead of 1.3MP) and the option to expand through MicroSD. So good so far.
The differences were, the design first of all, it was more square but had chrome finishes which added to the luxurious effect. The touch-navi wasn't improved much from the first, nor the screen, which was the same size and quality. The finish was high quality, good build and construction, and the camera had auto-focus, which is always a plus. The picture produced were incredibly improved from 'the chocolate'. It was pricey at first, but the price came down hard, as it was not very popular. It was also slow, wasn't very snappy and quick like 'Chocolate'. This handset was put quickly behind the shelves therefore, and did not make too much impression on the market.
The Chocolate Platinum takes all of the premium design cues of its predecessor and enhances them to produce yet another iconic handset. Boasting a body that's just 46mm wide and a luxurious piano black finish the Chocolate Platinum has a designer look that will suit all tastes. Concealing a large color screen, touch sensitive pad that glows red when activated, a keypad and a 2 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, it's more than meets the eye!
