Disadvantages: 2mp camera could have been 2megapixel or more
I love the LG cookie, Te name says it all and it certainly is a fresh new look to mobile phones.
The phone looks excellent and the shape and body is very nice to handle and look at. The phone only has a 2 megapixel camera, but I don't take many photos anyway. I purchased the black version which I think is the best colour compared to the silver.
The phone has some quick access buttons that you can press to do simple functions such as camera zoom, answering and hanging up, volume controls and many more. The touch screen is very sensitive and easy to use. The menus and software is very responsive and performance very well when running applications and general scrolling through menus. The button on the side of the phone is very handy. You can lock and unlock the phone t any time to prevent accidental use when it's in your pocket.
Once the phone is powered on you have some preinstalled widgets for common tasks and entertainment features. The phone has an FM radio, Calendar, photo gallery, memos and internet browser. Internet is reasonably fast on this phone and the screen is very vibrant and sharp which makes it easy to read. Mp3 playback is very simple and he sound quality is very crisp and loud.
Battery life is excellent and I used the phone for 2 days of heavy use by sending messages, listening to music and making phone calls.
The phone is very easy to use and easy to navigate through menus. The instruction manual is explains all the features very nicely and clearly.
When taking photos, the quality is pretty reasonable and there is no difference between and 3 megapixel photo and a 2 megapixel.
Another great feature is Bluetooth 2.1 which means transferring data to another Bluetooth 2.1 device will be many times faster than standard Bluetooth 1.1. If you transfer lots of data, the built in 16GB is more than enough storage for your photos, videos and music. It is also expandable with a microSD card.
Overall I am very happy with my purchase at a great price. It is loaded with features that will keep you entertained for long time.
Summary: A quality phone that is simple to use and is loaded with features.
