LG KF600 Review

There are two options for texting – via the keyboard and using the handwriting recognition. The second variant is well designed and it even suggests possible letters if you have not managed to write an exact one. Though the very idea, of writing on a small screen with no stylus, is not very attractive.

We have the standard SMS, MMS, E-mail, check Inbox and Mailbox, Drafts, Outbox, Sent items. The phone combines the messages from its memory with those from the SIM card. The only more extravagant extra is the option for writing a Bluetooth message. It would probably be an exciting feature for most teenagers, since it gives them the opportunity to harass people with turned on Bluetooth in public places. It also is an interesting way for wireless pick-ups in bars and clubs.

The phone offers support for POP3/IMAP mail, but unfortunately, there are no automatic configuration settings, like in other devices and you’ll have to do everything manually. The automatic check is always on and you can only change the intervals, at which it is performed – 1,3,6 hours. In addition, there is an option for adding an e-signature.

Generally, there is nothing new here and everything works fine. However, we want to remind you that if you are a hardcore texter, this keyboard is gonna make you suffer big time.

Connectivity:

For now, there is only a tri-band (900/1800/1900 MHz) variant of the KF600. 3G support lacks and you will have to browse the Web relying solely on the GPRS/EDGE, which is quite insufficient for the times that we are living in.


Internet:

Similar to Samsung, which is working with Google, in order to provide a convenient Internet search for the users of its devices, the company has formed a partnership with Yahoo. The result is the presence of the Yahoo! Go option in the browser, which you can configure as your homepage. It enables you to add various widgets, stay updated on news and other content of interest, such as eBay, MySpace, MTV and others.

The slow Internet and the far from perfect browser limit the use of this excellent feature. As soon as you try to open a larger site, such as PhoneArena.com, it raises the white flag and notifies you that „Content Too Large!”. Overall, KF600 is not a phone you can use for active browsing.

To connect locally you can use Bluetooth 2.0 or a USB cable to hook up to a PC. In order to use the phone as something else than a mass storage device though, you will have to install the newer and improved LG PC suite, which is still far behind its rivals from SE, Nokia, and Samsung. Aside from the fact that there is no message asking you which option would you like to use (mass storage or data service), once the cable is connected, you have to go to settings, then in connectivity choose USB connection, which is not exactly the fastest procedure. The good news is that the cable can be used as a charger too.
