Conclusion: There are three things this phone does: it makes and receives calls, it looks really nice, and it deals with video and photos with aplomb. And for those people looking for a phone to do all three: we have a winner.
Summary: Design Almost two years have passed since the first Prada handset has been announced and it still has its fans. Presently, LG has tried to surprise consumers adding a new product to its fashionistas phone line-up – Prada 2. Boasting improved technical features, the LG KF900 doesn't look much different than its “elder” brother.
Pros: The most impressive feature of the phone is the improved Flash UI, which has received a wide range of settings and tweaks. LG concentrates on user-friendliness like never before and, what's more important, the results are positive. Including some high-end features such as the HSDPA, the 5MP camera, an excellent music player and Radio FM is a good idea, which will broaden the phone's target.
Cons: I have always thought that LG phones are slow, compared with all other brand handsets. Prada 2 is no exception to this fact and this can be annoying for businessmen, who are looking for fast-reacting devices. While the problem is major, I think that the solution it implies is pretty easy and doesn't require too much of a cost.
Excerpt: Thanks to friends with deep pockets who always want to have the latest mobile phone but don't know squat on how to operate them (yes, I'm talking about you, Mark), I've gotten to test the new Prada Phone by LG or better known as the LG KF900 / LG Prada II.
Excerpt: LG’s KF900 handset is a smoothly stylish piece of mobile phone technology featuring a superb 3-inch touchscreen and a slide-open body that hides an excellent to use QWERTY keyboard. Given the Prada marketing slant, as you’d expect, the phone’s fairly pricey at around £400 (SIM-free) but from free depending on provider and contract.
Pros: Design, keyboard, touchscreen, ease of use
Cons: Price (SIM-free), no GPS, leather case, proprietary connector, bulk
Excerpt: The second collaboration between LG and fashion house Prada, the KF900 Prada Phone by LG delivers a distinctly refreshed and reworked take on the original touchscreen luxury-brand phone, whilst retaining much of the minimalist charm of the original.
Pros: 5-megapixel camera, Touchscreen, control with multi-touch, Qwerty keyboard text input option, 3G HSDPA connectivity, Wi-Fi connectivity, Good quality music player, 1GB MicroSD memory card supplied, Good quality video recording, Minimalist design, Intuitive user interface, Onscreen widgets supported, Prada branding, wallpapers and ringtones, 3.5mm headphone adapter, Leather case supplied
Cons: No smartphone capability, No GPS, Motion-controlled games limited, Widgets are limited, Low-light shooting isn't great, Some potentially battery-sapping features, Monochrome themes are limited, Touchscreen text input is poor
Excerpt: Prada od LG, mimo że jest na rynku mniej więcej od dwóch lat, wciąż jest telefonem oryginalnym i dość rzadko spotykanym, można powiedzieć ekskluzywnym. Jednak koreańska firma nie zamierzała zasypiać gruszek w popiele i pod koniec ubiegłego roku zaprezentowała drugą odsłonę Prady, która z jednej strony kontynuuje linię, a z drugiej oferuje wiele nowych opcji.
Conclusion: Gespräche klingen etwas leise und leicht dumpf. Dafür geht die Sende-/Empfangsleistung voll in Ordnung. Die PIM-Funktionen des New Prada sind mehr als ausreichend. Die Bedienung über den 3" Touchscreen geht überwiegend flott von der Hand, wenngleich das New Prada manchmal auch etwas hakt. Gerade in diesem Bereich könnte die Firmware noch ein Quäntchen mehr Esprit vertragen.
