LG L5100 Review - a Review of the LG L5100 Cell Phone

By: Jonathan Baker

Upon first glance, the LG L5100 doesn't look like a phone at all. In fact, it looks more like a high tech digital camera than anything else. Titanium grey and shiny jet black in color, it's got a sleek body that is thin and smooth to the touch. Since there isn't an external antenna to snag on anything, it fits as easily into a pocket as it does a large designer purse or glove compartment. Truly a unisex design, it is definitely a gadget to be seen with from the boardroom to the trendiest bar in town.

The flip on the clamshell style phone opens up and rotates 180 degrees, enabling users to take pictures from just about every angle imaginable. Photos can be seen on the visually perfect 262,000 color LCD screen that has a high definition display and measures 176 by 220 pixels. That said, the external screen is something spectacular, too. Slightly smaller than its internal counterpart, it shows 65,000 colors in all of their glory and has a liquid crystal display screen.

As for the 1.3 megapixel camera, it takes high resolution pictures as well as video. With specialized features like four time digital zoom, white balance, panorama and flash, pictures will come out as thought they were taken by a professional.

When photography loses its appeal, LG L5100 users can still keep themselves entertained by surfing the internet, courtesy of the WAP 2.0 browser. To be sure, email, stock information, downloadable games, ringtones and wallpapers are only a few clicks away. With a battery that lasts up to 200 hours on standby and up to 2.5 hours of talk time, there's no need to keep an eye on the nearest power outlet. Finally, optional accessories include a travel adapter, RS-232 and USB data kit and a hands free package.
