LG KG920 Review

Performance:

We were dissappointed by the phone’s slow reaction when working with its menus. It often takes too long to open a sub-menu and it is really annoying if you have to wait for 1-2 secs to save a setting, etc. The camera’s slowness is unforgivable.

KG920’s performance as a phone is also far from excellent. In our test, carried out underground with gradual decrease of the coverage, the phone performed poorly  and we have evaluated it at 3.5 out of 10 in comparison to the other phones. The sound during conversation is its stronger side: it is loud in both directions, the voices are heard clearly, but the poor reproduction of the high frequencies makes them slightly monotonous. The Speakerphone is not good and since the loudspeaker is at the back, if you place it so that it is heard well, the mike will be on the other side. It is only usable for very small distances, e.g. half a meter.


Conclusion:

We are not quite sure what exactly the idea was behind this model. Obviously, it is intended as a substitute for your pocket camera, but is that all? Provided that the competition has launched a terrific all-in-one device like Nokia N95, it is not serious on LG’s part to hope to take a good market share with a phone that is characterized by an outdated functionality and just a good (really good) camera. Unfortunately, the camera is not free of faults, either, e.g. its slowness and the frequently inadequate automatic white balance. We hope that with some software help KG920’s pictures would beat those of the competition. For the moment, this phone remains just an alternative of N95, which, however, cannot challenge in anyway the latter’s domination on the high-end camera phone market.

Pros

  • 5-megapixel camera with a CCD sensor
  • Good sound during conversation

Cons

  • Slow camera
  • Unenjoyable software
  • Poor functionality
  • Weak signal

DONT BUY THIS PATHETIC PHONE. 1) it does not work in Windows vista and there are no drivers or firmware updates for it. 2) Support persons are completely useless. they are just clue less about it. Idiots! 3) Phone wont let u use its internal memory. Only the external memory.Which is VERY slow. 4) This phone has more or HAVE NOTS rather than HAVEs 5) Still a long way to go for LG to make a really usable and user friendly phone.
