Summary: The LG Chocolate BL20 looks like a smooth operator, but in terms of functionality and features, it doesn't present that much of a step up from its older sibling -- the KG800. If you're shopping on a budget then this is worth considering, but there are better phones available in its class.
Cons: No Wi-Fi;. Video recording is poor;. Limited internal memory;. No 3.5mm headphone socket.

Conclusion: We have already told you about the great operational speed of the handset. Well, is in stark contrast to it. We felt mortified by the hollow and indistinct voices we heard and making out what the other person was trying to say was almost impossible.

People will still notice this when you take it out your pocket as itâ€™s definitely a looker, and presumably thatâ€™s what the Â£200 (PAYG) youâ€™ll have to pay for this goes on.

Summary: Über 10 Millionen Mal hat LG das Chocolate Phone weltweit verkauft. Ein echter Bestseller also, der die Firma auch auf dem europäischen Handyparkett erfolgreich machte. Grund genug also, endlich einen Nachfolger zu präsentieren. Während LG optisch an den bewährten Zutaten (Klavierlack & Sensortasten) festhielt, wurde das Inventar zeitgemäß aufgepeppt.
