LG PRADA KE850 Phone Review


Posted: , posted by Nanko R.



On the whole, the Prada reacts rather quickly and you do not have to wait for long to load the menus. The menus take a comparatively short time to open and the lag is fully acceptable. 

Although it is a jewel, LG PRADA is above all a phone and as such it performs brilliantly. The sound in both directions is loud, clear and realistic. Tuned on to a maximum, the sound is so strong that, if you’re holding the phone correctly, you’ll want to turn it down. There is no problem hearing in a noisy ambient.

We were, however, disappointed by the signal strength, which does not live up to the good sound. During our underground test, the PRADA phone performed poorly and got just 3/10 points, compared to the competition. You are likely to have problems in places with poor coverage, which other phones do not experience.


The Prada phone is a new-generation jewel.  Although it is not one of the posh models, using rare metals and precious stones, it is a status symbol for people who want a really good-looking exclusive phone.  Developing the designer language of the Chocolate phone on a new level, LG PRADA is the first of a new class of fashion phones and sets a benchmark for the other manufacturers. Extremely elegant both in its look and its software, the phone does not offer any special functionality, but nevertheless has good enough capabilities for its small size. When you add the perfect sound during conversation, you figure out that LG PRADA has more advantages than disadvantages. If the price is not an issue for you and you are looking for a phone with an exquisite look, rather than the enhanced functionality of a multimedia device like N95 or of a mobile computer like a PocketPC, then this is a good phone for you. It has its competition in the face of the more conservative Nokia 8800 Sirocco, which has replaced the trendy touch-sensitive screen with a hardware keyboard and metal slider. Other phones with a big sensor screen and just a few buttons are expected to come out in the future: iPhone and Samsung F700, but for the time being PRADA does not have any competition in this market segment.
