Excerpt: The third handset that adds to the LG Black Series, KF750, continues the tradition of its Chocolate and Shine predecessors, featuring an exquisite design that seems to target fashionistas. Stage named Secret, the slider combines stylish looks with smart technology and increased functionality.
Conclusion: Its touch performance isn't much cop, but that's really the only major blot on the Secret's copy book. Otherwise this is a mobile to rival the iPhone 3G.
Pros: Just as you don't see overweight, acne-ravaged girls on Hollyoaks, you don't see ropey-looking phones in LG's Black Label series. After the Chocolate and Shine comes the Secret, another top phone in the series. Broadband-speed HSDPA 3G provides sizzling download speeds, there’s a motion-sensing accelerometer and a cracking five-megapixel camera with auto-focus that takes superb snaps. It can even take video at 120fps for smooth slow-mo playback! With tough carbon fibr...
Cons: The onboard touch screen is only really used for a few tasks such as thumbing through your photo gallery - the rest is taken care of with the large physical keypad and a (sometimes irritatingly quick) touch-sensitive thumbstick. The screen isn't particularly great as a touch interface either, proving erratic at times.
Excerpt: I’m stumped why LG has named its KF750 mobile the ‘Secret’. What's it supposed to hide, exactly? Not the fact that its touchscreen has some limitations, surely? But let me stop waffling and cut to the chase. And so, here's my take on LG’s stylish new handset. Form Factor This 12mm thick handset has a stylish carbon fiber body accentuated with leather. The chrome border only enhances its appeal.
Excerpt: Tempered glass and carbon fibre aren't materials you would usually find in a mobile phone but the LG Secret boasts that and a lot more. The LG Secret is available from a number of networks and resellers for free from around £25 to £30 per month. What we like The LG Secret looks and feels like it was designed by luxury car manufacturers. Tempered glass, carbon fibre and fake leather combine to create a serious phone that can take a few knocks.
Conclusion: Over the Secret is a great addition to the black label series and is certainly a future proof phone with great styling and functionality. The phone would be perfect for the studious university goer as the touch tempered glass front and carbon fibre battery cover means the phone would survive even the toughest nights out, however with hefty price tag the Secret carries it is sure to add to their student debt.
Summary: We were hard-pushed to fault this superb phone. LG packs in a vast number of features and functions on top of the exceptional video and photo capture options yet it's so well thought out and easy to navigate, there's no danger of getting lost, just plenty to explore and enjoy.
