Excerpt: The Qwerty keyboard is designed to have you social networking your socks off, although there’s few other things about the GW520 that might put you off. What we like There’s an excellent keyboard on the GW520 - the keys are nicely spread apart, and large enough so that you don’t find yourself...
Conclusion: If you are looking for a new pay as you go device and are big on messaging it may be worth adding this to your Christmas list. I will email Father Christmas the review so he knows how nice the phone is!
Conclusion: As a whole, the LG GW520 is a good cell phone that boasts fast internet connectivity, really comfy QWERTY keyboard and won´t give you a headache, no matter what you use it for. Frankly, there aren´t many cell phones in this price category that come with both touch sensitive screen and full QWERTY...
Pros: Really comfy keyboard, The screen is very sensitive, Good build quality, Decent in-call quality, Good Facebook app
Cons: Mediocre camera, Browser without intuitive, finger-based controls, Unappealing design
Conclusion: It almost feels like quite a few Cookie users get the sneaky thought they should've waited for this one. We'd go ahead and tell them they don't need to feel cheated. The Cookie did a great job (and still does) of making touchscreen so sweetly affordable, spirited and fun.
Pros: 2.8" 256K-color TFT touchscreen (240 x 400 pixels), Friendly four-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G (with HSDPA) support, 3 megapixel fixed focus camera, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, 40MB internal memory, Hot-swappable microSD card slot (supporting card with capacity of up...
Cons: No Wi-Fi, Video recording no good at QVGA@12fps, Camera has no auto focus or flash, No DivX/Xvid video support, No standard 3.5mm audio jack, Facebook is the only social networking app and it lacks Push
Summary: Overall the LG GW520 is a nice feature phone. I’m not sure how many people would get this on a contract but as a PAYG phone its a real bargain if you ask me. The keyboard is not as good as on the high end smartphones but its still good.
Conclusion: The LG GW520 really is a mobile phone of two halves. One the one side you have the nice design, solid keyboard, good daytime camera, relatively cheap price and multitasking capabilities, and on the other hand you have the poor touchscreen, lack of camera features and an accelerometer that is...
Summary: Succeeding in KS360, the LG GW520 is a sliding mobile phone with QWERTY keyboard like its predecessor. Affordable Equipment, midrange, touch screen... With its characteristics, this mobile phone targets a rather young audience optimized for e-mails and SMS.
Conclusion: We were disappointed by the GW520 because we were expecting more: more freedom and more sophistication. The keyboard is the stand-out feature here, but the phone doesn't elevate itself much further than being a QWERTY messenger phone.
Pros: Great keyboard, good battery life
Cons: Poor browser, limited connectivity, outdated user interface, can't be controlled from the keyboard alone
