LG T565 Review
The simple, easy to use interface is among the things we like about the LG T565. It offers three customizable home screens, a whole bunch of widgets, and icons that are big enough for any thumb. Sadly, its on-screen keyboard is quite frustrating to use. It is slow, unresponsive, and its keys are way too tiny. Thankfully, switching to a T9 numeric keypad makes typing easier.
As far as software is concerned, you get both Twitter and Facebook clients out of the box, as well as a Windows Live Messenger client. All off them can work in the background too, which is pretty cool . The email client works great with the popular email service providers and supports push email notifications. Sadly, we couldn't get the YouTube client to work.
Internet and Connectivity:
Yes, the little T565 has an HTML browser too! However, it is barely passable. Pages take a while to load, during which time using them is nearly impossible, and the heavier ones fill up its memory, thus failing to render entirely. Besides, pinching to zoom works well when you zoom in, but glitches up when you zoom out. Nevertheless, simpler pages, such as Wikipedia, work absolutely fine. Hooking up to the web is done either over EDGE 2G or Wi-Fi.
Camera and Multimedia:
Now, we know what you are thinking: this phone probably has a mediocre camera. And you'd be right as the 3-megapixel shooter, with no auto-focus nor flash, takes uninspiring shots that lack detail. Videos look terrible even when viewed on the phone's display.

LG should put android on it low end devices. It can be done like the Optimus ME?

I didn't know they still made feature phones anymore. The last feature phone I owned was an LG Prime before I switched to Sprint. I actually liked it for what it was.
