Conclusion: We really like the LG Prada 3.0. It's the best mobile phone we've reviewed from LG in a while and manages the rare feat of being fashionable, without compromising on features. It's not perfect - the specs already feel a little outclassed and there are certainly more powerful phones with better...
Pros: Excellent screen, Attractive design and menu, Fast processor
Cons: Unusual camera launcher placement, Arguably a little plasticky
Excerpt: The original Prada Phone, LG would have us believe, was the inspiration for the iPhone. Just four months after LG won the iF Design award for its groundbreaking design, Steve Jobs took to the stage at Macworld and turned the entire industry on its head.
Excerpt: The Prada Phone by LG has certainly got a unique look about it with a textured back cover that gives it the feel of fancy notebook or a posh leather-bound cigarette case. Personally we did not like this design and for the money you pay (something like £342), its spec seems under-whelming compared to...
Conclusion: The designer name's the big sell here, but the phone's spec more than lives up to the moniker, with a very impressive screen, powerful processor and fine camera, all in a very sleek casing.
Pros: Very bright screen, great camera, speedy 1GHz dual-core processor
Summary: While LG’s Prada has managed to get a few things right, it feels more like Prada should have put the phone through quality control before it was released with the likeness of such a prestigious design house.
Pros: One of the few phones to be officially licensed by a major fashion brand, Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology included, Covered charge port
Cons: Outdated version of Android (2.3), Only LG's icons match the monochromatic skin, making the Android overlay look unfinished, Could do with more internal storage space, Battery lucky to last a day
Summary: It may be aimed more at fashionistas than hardcore tech fans, but LG’s latest Prada phone ticks many of the boxes that even the most demanding of gadget fans chase. It’s built well, looks great and is comfortably slim in the pocket. Its UI, though inconsistent, is unique and stylish.
