Advantages: Camera Quality
Disadvantages: Bad Touch , Short Battery Life
This was the first LG phone i had used and it curbed a bad impression of LG as a mobile manufacturer. I bought this phone for 55 Pounds off from eBay , the main factor i considered while buying this phone was the low price tag. I did not go looking for reviews before buying it , and ordered it after glancing through the spec sheet. Detailed below is my experience with the phone :
Well , i would like to mention that the LG KU990 was a full touch screen based phone , but this was the worst thing about the phone. The touch screen had a real bad feedback , it was not sensitive and i had to use my nails or the stylus provided with it to carry out touch operations. Well , in a full touch based phone , one would surely want a good touch , but it wasn't so in the case of this phone and this was the major drawback of the phone. It was real annoying to carry the stylus along or i would have to use my nails. The phone was not provided with a place to store the stylus and it had to be attached with the phone making using a string. Whats the point of providing no place to keep a stylus when the touch wouldn't work properly without it.
The mobile's interface is simple to use , the phone had a simple home screen with touch based buttons at the bottom of the screen. The phone was fast while browsing through menus , but it took a very long time to load the music library or the image gallery , every time i wanted to select some song , it refreshed the song library and took anytime between 30-40 seconds to completely display all the songs , this was another feature i disliked.
The 5 MegaPixel camera is the only thing that impressed me , the photos are of high quality and i did not see a lack in quality even when i printed a large size photo. The colors are vivid and the photos are naturalistic.
The battery is awful , i wonder why LG phones have such a bad battery life , the second LG phone i used was a LG Renoir and it had the same battery issues with it.
Although the phone has a low price tag , but the lack of a proper touch screen in a full touch screen phone is a major setback. I wouldn't recommend this phone and would advise you to go for the its higher model , LG Renoir.
