Conclusion: It looks like Apple's upcoming iPhone and has a lot of the same features, but it'll appeal primarily to the very well-heeled—which is just the way Prada wants it. It doesn't match up to the iPhone's expected PC-syncing capabilities, but it's still an elegant, unusual, and powerful handheld.
Pros: Unusual touch-screen interface. Luxury brand and feel. Excellent music and video playback quality. Surprisingly long talk time.
Cons: No 3G. Relatively quiet earpiece. Poor PC software.
Conclusion: LG Prada is one of the nicest candybars on the market and I'm not the only one who thinks that (see how many prizes it got). Its design is almost flawless and offers a surprisingly great functionality through its touchscreen. This is definitely a fashionistas phone and no businessman will want to buy it. At the moment, this is the best-looking LG handset; what's it gonna be next?
Pros: Glancing at any latest LG handset you cannot avoid noticing their stylish and innovative designs, and LG Prada has them both ... 100%. Its lightweight and its perfect ergonomics put it in a "One man show" position and recommend it for heavy worldwide sale. The innovative touchscreen technology improves the functionality even if this is no smartphone. These features will surely be enough to please most of the LG brand fans and conquer the hearts of any fashionistas.
Cons: I'm trying to figure out why every time I'm using an LG handset I discover so many software related bugs. This is becoming embarrassing for LG who usually makes great good-looking phones, but the lack of a good firmware will only handicap the phone's functionality. Bad software is probably the most important thing I noticed on LG Prada. The second one is the low power battery which will probably convince you not to buy this phone, but when it comes to tastes� who can ...
Excerpt: Not too long ago we took a look at the LG Shine and this time we are going to the next level with LG's most elaborate fashion phone, the KE850 or as it's better known, the Prada. To be fair to LG, the Prada phone arrived ahead of the Apple iPhone and it features a touch interface, although, it is not quite multi-touch. The phone itself is tiny for a touch screen device, as it measures just 99x54x12mm (HxWxD) and weighs a mere 85 grams.
Excerpt: The Apple iPhone might have generated the most buzz, but LG and Prada beat them to the touch interface punch by 6 months, at least. We have a full review of the LG KE850 Prada phone, including 4 videos of it in action.
Summary: Another item launched last year among glitz and glamour at no less a venue than Claridges. I was told it would be on sale in January – maybe is was – but review units only arrived with the UK agency at the very end of March.
Summary: The LG Prada Phone is a forward-thinking fashion phone that's bound to appeal to the it crowd (but perhaps not the IT crowd), with its eye-catching design and unique Android skin. It's pricey given its specs and the build lacks luxury, but there's still a lot to like.
Pros: Fashion styling and svelte figure, Smooth performance and intriguing Android skin, Searingly bright NOVA screen
Summary: There's definitely a few components missing for what you'll pay for a Prada, but these haven't detracted from our experience. It's much better than the original Prada phone and many of its current competitors as well.
Pros: Simple yet stylish design, Excellent touchscreen experience, One of the best QWERTY keyboards around
Cons: Expensive, No substantial internal memory, No 3.5mm headphone socket on the phone
