LG Cookie Gig KM570 Review
According to LG, the battery of the Cookie Gig KM570 should last for about 4 hours of talk time or 100 in standby. This is relatively short for a feature phone, which doesn't sport such a great display.
We just have to point out that we are rather disappointed at the LG Cookie Gig KM570. It's really sad to see a likeable device with proper specifications fail like this and moreover, at what it's supposed to be best – audio capabilities in this case. The Cookie Gig is not a bad handset, but there are quite a few cell phones we would prefer to it, including:
The Samsung Lindy M5650 – equipped with worse camera, it offers substantially better sound and audio quality, dedicated application for Last.fm and better browser (plus Wi-Fi).
The Nokia 5530/5800 Xpress Music – the operating system powering these smartphones gives them the upper hand, not to mention the audio playback quality is much better. Both handsets feature Wi-Fi, but the 5530 lacks 3G.
The LG ARENA KM900 – comes with similar overall look, but delivers more extra features at almost the same price.
The LG Cookie Fresh GS290 – we recommend it to everyone who doesn't care much about taking snapshots and videos, but happens to be on the lookout for a proper music-oriented device with affordable price tag. The FM radio is headphone-free, which is a cool extra feature.
All told, the LG Cookie Gig KM570 is worth the money if you need a relatively cheap cell phone with relatively capable camera and relatively decent audio player (with proper earphones). Well... it's quite obvious what we are getting at, isn't it?
- Dainty appearance
- Video capture at 720х480 pixels and 30 frames per second
- FM transmitter
- Low snapshot quality
- Mediocre loudspeaker
- Unusable browser
- Software that gets sluggish at times
