The 3-megapixel camera on the back has neither autofocus nor flash, but the Cookie has no claims in this regard. We walked around and took some shots and we concluded that with the pictures from this camera you can boast before your friends like: "Look, I was there". However, you will not able to show the squirrel on the tree behind you. Outdoor pictures are noisy, have an average level of detail and sometimes the colors are unreal; with artificial light the situation is pretty bad. There is an option for recording video with a  maximum resolution of 320x240 pixels, which makes it suitable for YouTube, for example, but not for playing on the big screen.

In the gallery, which is like the one of the Renoir, you can waste a lot of time and have fun with the many effects that can be applied to the photos. You have also this well-known application from the Viewty, Muvee Studio, which enables you to make interesting videos with the photos, available  on the phone.

What is interesting about LG Cookie’s music player is that the interface is updated and it is much more beautiful than that of the more expensive LG Renoir, which is from a higher market segment. Here you have the same options to filter your songs (by artist, album, genre cover ...), but the cover occupies a large part of the screen and the buttons are much better made, so that they can be pressed easily with a finger. In addition, there are several equalizer presets, but you cannot set your own. If you are tired of listening to what you have stored on the phone or the memory card, you can run the FM radio and to enjoy the beautiful and somehow funny interface. We can’t help sharing with you that the sound from the loudspeaker is very strong and above the average quality. The situation with the headphones is almost the same and as a whole we are pleasantly surprised by the musical capabilities of the KP500.

The playback of video files, however, frustrated us, because we were able to play only H.263 encoded videos, but we also wanted to enjoy H.264 ones. which offer better quality. Too bad for the 3-inch screen...

For fun you can try one of the available games. For example, if you like gambling, thanks to the accelerometer, you have the opportunity to throw dice (Flying dices) or moving the wheel of luck (Wheel mania).

I have purchased this phone about 2 weeks ago, with the price of IDR 2,600,000, or approximately U.S. $ 237. I think this phone is very good especially with the facilities offered with a very affordable price. The Flash User Interface is very interesting and easy to use, it also features touchscreen is very good. Music player is also quite good, unfortunately there is no flash on the camera and the battery capacity is too small for a phone with a screen of that, but in general this phone is very good. Well done again LG!

I'm going to trade off my Sony Ericsson W610i with LG Cookie... I'm looking for budget phones with good sound quality for playing my MP3 collections. Is the sound quality of the Cookie better than w610i? (Or at least the same, considering it's a touch screen phone)
