LG Renoir Review (KC910): 8MP Camera Phone with Superb Features
25 October 2010
Summary: The LG Renoir KC-910 definitely represents value for money phone with its 8MP camera, Schneider Kreuznach-certified lens, Xenon flash and best-of-the-breed features. Get more insight on its user interface, design, features and performance in this detailed LG KC910 Renoir review.
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,...
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.
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...
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.
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
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.
