LG Jil Sander Mobile hands-on
Picking the handset up, we’re thinking to ourselves, is this really a handset designed by a fashion enthusiast? Simply, it looks far from anything chic, and instead, it comes off as something cheap because of its super plasticy feel. Sure it might have the faux pas appearance of being a metallic looking device, but it’s obviously far from that. Moreover, there isn’t anything particularly compelling about the patterned design it’s flaunting all over its body.
In terms of hardware specs, this is nothing we haven’t seen before, since it features a 3.8” WVGA display, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with flash, 1GHz single-core processor, 720p video recording, and Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.
Seriously, we haven’t been impressed of lately by devices that are claiming to be designed from fashion buffs. Instead, they really need to get some inspiration from some of the classier devices on the market, in order to stand out from the crowd.
Overlooking its less than pleasing looks, at least the platform experience is solid – then again, isn’t that supposed to be the case with Windows Phone in general? So far, there is no word if this handset is coming stateside, but it’s reportedly coming to Europe one way or another.

Fashion designers are just overpaid hacks. Its a totally vain profession that doesnt improve our lives. And I doubt this was actually from a fashion designer anyway, it looks ugly as sin, probably just were able to put their name on it in exchange for a cash donation to them.
