LG KF310 Review
This is an unlocked GSM phone which can operate in the
US on AT&T (without 3G) and T-Mobile (without 3G).
Introduction:
LG KF310 Review

The slider LG KF310, presented by the manufacturer as Internet oriented phone, falls in the upper part of the entry level and targets the con mass consumer, which wants to have a good functionality without having to fully redistribute the monthly finances. The more attractive options offered by the model are multitasking, which is not even present in some upper class devices, a 2-megapixel camera and 3G support.


Design:

KF310’s design is not impressive, but more average and modest. Overall, its size is not very compact, but at least the weight of 3.4 oz (95 grams) is acceptable. It is made of plastic, which when touched reminds of the low class the phone belongs to.

Naturally, the 2 ” TFT display with resolution of 176 x 220 pixels and 262k color support is located on the front. Under artificial lighting, the picture looks colorless, and in direct sunlight, the display is totally useless because nothing can be seen.

Below it, we find the soft buttons, the two receivers and 5 navigational keys. The last ones resemble a D-pad, but are separated from each other. When pressing all buttons they are very firm, which makes them hard to operate.

Keyboard

The sliding mechanism is stable and looks dependable, and is easily operated. Pushing it up, it reveals a keyboard with a blue backlight. The first raw consists of the multitasking button (we’ll discuss that in Interface), Clear and the camera dedicated one. None of them are protruding and they are hard to press. These keys are not easy to distinguish by touch either.

On the left, we have relieved and user-friendly volume controls and the microSD slot. On the opposite side is located the universal charger/handsfree/data cable port.

So I get that the target for this, and many recent, reviews are obviously the average joe. Regardless of who the target audience of the device the 'PA Phone Rating' is always based on how well the general user would like it. In my personal opinion, this is a bad way of rating the phones. Because based on this rating the staff of PA would be using the LG KF310 over their Iphones (which scored a 8.8). The reality is that the phone performs execptional for the audience it was made for, but not so for a high tech junkie. Which is why I must ask why would a site create a rating system that rates a product on its capabilities individually and disregard it to give a general opinion of how they felt about? Curious, yeah?

Yeah,, always found choosing a phone to be more of a personal decision... not based on a rating.

The rating is based on the class the phone is targeted for. An entry-level with lots of options = good phone. A high-end phone with mediocre features and user experience = not so good phone.
