LG Cookie Gig KM570 Review
As we have already mentioned, the loudspeaker and earpiece are actually a "two in one" component. The sound through it is rather sharp, with the voice of your caller... rather annoying. Frankly, there is no way to get rid of the excessive sharpness, since it remains noticeable even if you turn down the volume. People on the other end didn't seem to have the same problem, but told us we sounded surreal. On the overall, the in-call quality is about average.

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.

Conclusion:

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?
