LG Cookie Review
For the time that we were using the KP500 we did not encounter any problems regarding its performance, which we evaluate as normal. Just at moments, due to the transitions in the menus, you have the impression that the commands are executed slowly. And how does it perform during a call? Honestly speaking, it does quite well, providing good sound quality on both sides. The voices are very loud and even the person that you are talking to can be startled in the beginning. Unfortunately, if he/she does not reduce the volume a bit, everything will sound unpleasantly sharp with a lot of environment noises.


Thin and light with a large touch-sensitive screen and with features, almost typical for a higher-end phone, the LG Cookie definitely has a chance to win the heart of the common user. We believe it is a very good choice, especially when it comes to its relatively low price and the possibilities it offers. This puts us in an uncomfortable position because it is difficult to show you decent alternatives in this price range. However, you can check whether the HTC Touch Viva will not appeal to you, but note that it is a smartphone, which means that it’s more complicated to work with, due to the Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional operating system.

The software version of the reviewed unit is KP500AT_V10c.

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)
