LG GT505 Review
LG GT505 performed decently and stuck to the golden medium. The same goes for the in-call quality – voices through the earpiece are too sharp, but will get almost OK once you´ve turned the volume down a bit, so you will be able to hear people on the other end without any problems. If the person you´re talking to does the same, they will be pleased with the result. The battery is not a top performer and according to the manufacturer should be able to provide about 3.5hrs of continuous talk time and keep the phone operational for 300hrs in standby.
All told, we are definitely more pleased than displeased with the LG GT505. It´s a typical mainstream handset, meaning the manufacturer has had to work out a compromise to manage to keep the price low, but integrated nice extra features like a GPS, Wi-Fi and decently performing 5-megapixel camera. We are disappointed with the video playback and capture capabilities as well as the boring overall design. Still, if you cannot afford the LG ARENA KM900 or the Samsung Jet S8000 and think the Cookie and S5230 Star have rather simple functionality, the GT505 is one of your best options.
- Good snapshot quality
- Appealing interface with a lot of room for favorite contacts (with pictures)
- GPS with Wisepilot navigation
- Good music player and playback quality
- Wi-Fi and HSDPA 7.2Mbps
- Rather bad at video capture and playback
- No 3.5mm jack
