Excerpt: If it is a phone you want with a top notch camera, the LG KC910 Renoir will not disappoint you. Announced in August 2008, the phone is available in the market since November 2008. LG has always made it a point to incorporate the latest technology and make the handsets feature-filled.
Excerpt: The first 8 Megapixel camera handset manufactured by LG, KC910 Renoir is one of the few of its kind that can be found on the market. Competing directly with Samsung's M8800 Pixon, which also features an 8 Megapixel camera and touchscreen interface, LG's Renoir closely follows in Viewty's footsteps, one of the best LG camera phones.
Pros: Besides its exquisite design, LG Renoir features one of the best cameras on the market, I guess on par with Samsung's Pixon. Another good feature of the phone is the improved Flash UI, which raises its functionality. I also found Renoir more stable than other LG high-end phones (Viewty, Prada).
Cons: The unusable GPS and the fast draining battery are the main cons of the phone. A much better CPU would've made the device run snappier.
Excerpt: The megapixel race continues as LG adds a whopping 8-megapixel camera on to its latest touchscreen phone, the LG Renoir. What we like The LG Renoir is a neat-looking touchscreen phone with curved edges and magpie-attracting shiny surfaces. At the heart of LG's new touchscreen is an 8-megapixel camera that comes with a substantial lens cover and dedicated shutter key so that taking pics is a simple affair.
Summary: The Renoir’s interface is attractive to look at and usable, but it lacks the sparkle of other platforms, such as Android or Symbian. In terms of its capabilities, as a camera phone it performs best in bright daylight and at low ISOs, but in low light and at higher sensitivities, it all goes horribly wrong. The underpowered flash doesn’t help here either.
Pros: Lightweight and slim, Dolby Mobile audio, Widgets bar, Clear screen, Features.
Cons: No 3.5mm headphone jack, Unresponsive touchscreen, Excessive camera phone image noise at higher sensitivities, Plastic build, Lens protrudes, 3-inch screen not up to competition.
Conclusion: LG’s Renoir KC910 is a good model, but it worth it? We would have to say it is not. The 8-megapixel camera and the rich functionality would be really attractive to the consumer if there was no competition in the class. However, in the world we are living in the mobile industry is characterized by dynamic development in all aspects and we all know that only the best live to see another day. We think that the rival Pixon is better because of the better software as a whole.
Pros: Shiny appearance, Wi-Fi
Cons: Sloppy software, Troubles with some songs and videos, The camera is not as good as the competition, You have to press the display instead of touch it, We never really managed to check our mail
Summary: Everybody is going crazy about the iPhone – it's all iPhone-this and iPhone-that. But what if you want to be a little different, slightly original and not follow the crowd? Well, if that sounds like you then the LG KC910 Renoir could very well be the phone for you. The Renoir is not a device to be trifled with, not only does it feature a gorgeous 3-inch touchscreen and weight in at a mere 114g, but it also features a whopping 8-megapixel camera too!
Summary: I n general, the LG Renoir is a versatile cell phone and easy to operate thanks to the touchscreen monitor. This touchscreen operation not only makes it easier, but also more pleasant. It makes you feel more connected to the phone. Making pictures with the LG KC910 is a piece of cake thanks to the touch focus option. The supporting Xenon flash allows you to also take pictures in underexposed environments.
