Conclusion: The LG Cookie Fresh is a nice touchscreen phone and will satisfy the casual mobile user who wants a basic phone and to use for texting friends and listening to music. Social networking fiends and those who want to surf the web will be disappointed with the slow speeds, and will wish that LtG had...
Conclusion: As the conclusion to my review I will say a closing statement that unfortunately my opinion is that as a ‘follow on’ handset from the extremely popular original LG Cookie the LG GS290 Cookie Fresh just isn’t a worthy successor to be honest.
Excerpt: LG has made an attempt to shift its classification of the cookie from being a multimedia phone to a 24 x 7 social networking phone to cater to the ever-growing popularity of online social networking sites.
Excerpt: The latest in LG’s Cookie jar is the GS290 or Cookie Fresh. It’s designed to offer the younger mobile user all that a mobile phone should without having them break into their savings. But does it deliver on its promises as a budget social networking, multimedia handset?
Summary: LG’s Cookie phones have done well for themselves around the world on account of their reasonable performance coupled with a light price-tag. The LG Cookie Fresh GS290 is the newest phone to take on the Cookie tag and is looking to win over people looking for an inexpensive touchscreen device.
Conclusion: I must admit, I’ve never been a huge fan of phones from LG, but the GS290 has really impressed me. Despite the crowded main menu screen and below par camera, the phone itself is a really tidy little device.
