LG Shine: Glitz and Gloss

By: Adam Caitlin

Being a part of premium Black Label portfolio, the LG Shine is meant for the fashion conscious world. After the astounding success achieved by earlier Black Label mobile phones like the LG Chocolate, the Korean mobile manufacturing unit goes back to basic with full metallic casing of traditional silver and conventional keys which are much convenient than the tricky touch sensitive ones featured in the LG Chocolate.

The LG Shine reaffirms LG's credibility of designing excellence and not just a one phone wonder. The handset otherwise known as LG KE970 got the name shine for obvious reasons. Apart from the highly reflective steel casing, the handset's 262k coloured TFT screen is very cleverly hidden by mirror effect. The use of LG Shine as a mirror for a quick hairdo or make-up check can not be ruled out! Thankfully, this immaculately designed mobile phone is packed with much more features, tools and applications than any other fashion solutions from LG.

Presently there are three LG Shine - LG KE970, LG KE770 and LG KU970. Among them, the LG KE770 is of candy bar form, while the remaining two are sliders. The main difference between these two LG Shine sliders is that the KU970 features HSDPA whereas the LG KE970 - the handset in review offers 2.5G EDGE with microSD expansion slot.

Looks apart, LG shine also offers enhanced functionalities ranging from connectivity to mobile entertainment. The handset comes with good imaging experience, sound quality and smooth connectivity. Empowered with a 2.0 megapixel digital camera module with auto focus, flash and zoom, a media player compatible with multiple audio and video format - the LG Shine is your ultimate companion. There are also host of connectivity tools to surf, email, chat and download. With an internal memory pool of 50 Mb and external memory card support, the LG Shine could be turned into a massive storehouse of your digital files.
