LG Chocolate U830 has a few downsides, but is otherwise great.
10 May 2009
Excerpt: "The advantages ? A nice, clean, sharp look. Inexpensive for a good quality phone. Comes with SD card so you can easily transfer music, photos, etc. from your computer to the phone. Keypad is easy to use. The disadvantages ? Limit of sound settings. ( If you want your phone to vibrate for text messages, but ring for calls, this phone cannot do it! Its either all muted, all on vibrate, or all on rings. Also, you cannot turn the Camera's "click" ...
Pros: easy to use, looks nice, comes with SD card, inexpensive
Cons: limit of sound settings, gets greasy from fingers easily
Summary: I was really impressed with this phone for about 6 months. Everything works well. It keeps all my appointments infact it pretty much runs my life for me. Then I invested in a Tom Tom 520Go. It will not connect via bluetooth. Apparently the u830 is not a phone that is recommended by Tom Tom. Because this phone has done everything else perfectly I immediately assumed that it would connect like it did to my Garmin but alas no.
Pros: looks good, works well , good graphics, excellent camera
Excerpt: "Very nice phone, fits almost anywhere in your purse or in the back of your phone, very good iif you want to play music. Not that difficult to maneuver. Sound quality through the ear piece is very good. excellent for taking pictures. It has this thing that gives the ablility to make slide shows with your pictures. You can do this for the outside screen and the inside screen. The style of the phone is very unique, its very youthful sort of urban look ...
Pros: Sound Quality
Cons: a little bit overtime you the sound in the earpeice
Excerpt: "i have owned this phone for about 7 months now and still have no intention of upgrading just yet. the design is fantastic, slim-line to fit easily in any bag or pocket, with a nice silver outline around the edge of the phone. the 2 megapixel camera takes some really good quality photos that still look just as good when transferred to my computer. the message memory capacity is also great as i am a big texter and find it useful that im not constantly ...
Pros: slim design, good memory, 2 megapixel camera
Excerpt: "...this phone! This is my second LG phone, and is just as reliable as my first one. Starting with the looks...it is a very attractive phone- sleek, black, slim and shiny. It has special buttons on the front for controlling the music player, which only show up when you press a button on the side of the phone which makes them glow red. They are heat and touch sensitive which is pretty funky but also means that they are unfortunately easy to accidentally ...
Pros: Easy to use, great looking, good camera, easy to personalise, reliable
Cons: Flat keypad, no torch, position of buttons on the side, fiddly charger
Excerpt: "The LG U830 is a new phone, brought out to extend the LG chocolate into the 3G market. I'll start with what I don't like about the phone. Firstly, and quite annoyingly, the phone memory is stuck at 188mb, which will hold approx 40 or 50 songs, but compared to the walkman phones this is relatively poor. Also, the buttons on the floor are flat and feel as if they are stuck when you press them. However, the sleek design of the phone makes it a lovely ...
Excerpt: ¿Cómo definir con pocas palabras un teléfono fiable, atractivo, elegante y que atrae las miradas?. Es fácil, solo hay que nombrar el LG Electronics U830. Pero a esto hay que añadir que es negro, delgado y brillante. Soy uno de los millones de personas que también utilizamos en móvil para hacer fotos.
Summary: Ich hatte schon des öfteren ein LG U830, bisher leider immer schlechte Akkus. Selbst neue Akkus haben eine enttäuschende Leistung von max. 2 Tagen. Ich habe jetzt einen gebrauchten gefunden der trotz allem 5, 6 Tage hält und dadurch konnte ich das Handy besser kennen lernen. Das Menü, das bei LG sehr einfach und gut ist, gefällt mir der riesige Speicher und der tolle Bildbetrachter ganz besonders.
Excerpt: ...(2 mega pixels), il logo lg ed il logo dell'operatore (3). Lo schermo esterno ed i tasti touch non si vedono neanche. Poi premendo i tasti laterali (quello a destra permette l'attivarsi della fotocamera anche da chiuso, quello a sinistra il selezionare le opzioni del mini menu che si attiva con il tasto premuto prima) si illumina lo schermo ed i tasti touch (quest'ultimi di rosso) che servono per utilizzare il cellulare come riproduttore audio. Questi ...
Cons: mancanza espansione memoria esterna, tastiera poco ergonomica
