“I have had my old V500 for some time, and I am not...”

Written on: 02/12/2005 by poetuesday (2 reviews written)

Good Points
Thin, lightweight, funky and solid.

Bad Points
Swivel camera, no flash, too many icons on the two screens, camera/video button on the side.

General Comments
I have had my old V500 for some time, and I am not really into phones, so I thought it was time I changed networks and phones. Out of the phones available on 3, I went for the LG U880 as it was smaller that the other options.

I like the look of it. Having two screens is cool, and the blue illuminated buttons are nice. I am easily pleased, and only really want a phone that does the basics. I don't want to download music or do video calling, but having these I options will naturally fill other buyers remit.

I am not that hot with using phones, and it took a while for me to get my head around the menu, but what I like about the phone is that the buttons are big, the menu (once I had worked out what I was doing) was easy (but the manual wasn't), and it seems to be quite strong but lightweight. I don't like the camera button on the side of the phone, or the swivel camera lens (just seems a bit cheap); nor do I like the little covers for the charger and other plug in devices. I don't know what is attaching them to the phone, but they don't seem to be very strong, and I can see that with a bit of use, especially from someone trying to open them in the car etc., that they may well snap away.

Initially I didn't like the phone and was really tempted to return it, but now that I am used to it I really like it. I just need to have less techno fear and I think we will get along fine. I just wish that the phone manufacturers would write manuals for beginners, maybe then we all might be able to use more of the functions available.
