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.
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: LG has produced some stunning products to look at in recent times, from its kitchen appliances to its television range. Even its phone range has been pretty stunning to look at, if not all that in use. The LG Renoir is served up with the usual tantalising looks, including a sumptuous touchscreen.
Pros: One of the most recent “ iPhone beaters” – boy, has that phone had a lot of beating since its launch – the Renoir boasts an eight-meg camera with face recognition and xenon flash, eight gigs of onboard storage AND a microSD card slot. Stick that in your smug-pipe and smoke it, Apple. The camera, ...
Cons: The Renoir is a very good all-rounder but it feels a bit cheap and doesn’t have any one outstanding feature. The camera can match the Sony Ericsson C905 and Samsung M8800 Pixon for megapixels but not for the quality of results, the touchscreen-based OS and music player are fiddly and annoying com...
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.
Conclusion: Ok so the interface is not that sophisticated but this really is a great phone. The pictures from the camera were comparable to those I have shot on 5MP plus digital cameras, and the editing tools worked. But it was with the video and music playback that I was most impressed.
Pros: 8MP camera, DivX video viewing and Dolby sound
Cons: Interface is a wee bit clunky, on-screen keyboard not always accurate, no 3.5mm jack

Excerpt: Quizá en un principio nos mostramos excépticos con este KC910. Todas las dudas se disipan al tenerlo en las manos y empezar a utilizarlo. No es un iPhone, ni está basado en Windows Mobile, pero sorprende por lo fácil que resulta y por lo claro y sencillo de su entorno

Cons: El teclado virtal obliga a usar stylus, No posee USB estándar
