LG Prada Mobile Phone Review

by : Mark Hirst



LG has become one of the best-known manufacturers of high-design phones. It's not much a surprise then that premier fashion house Prada chose LG as its partner for the Prada brand mobile phone. Since the announcement of the Prada, there's been a great deal of hype surrounding the slim and beautiful phone with a touch screen interface. The launch date was January of 2007, and the phone when released showed its status as the epitome of style and elegance. It is one of the most attractive handsets available on the market.
The casing is lightweight piano black with smoothly rounded corners and a touch of silver decorating the sides. The phone comes with a hard leather case which works well for protection from scratches, wear, and fingerprints. The phone is also exquisitely compact at 98.8 x 54 x 12 mm and weighing in at a meager 85 grams.
A primary attraction of the LG Prada is the enormous touch display which measures a full 3 inches diagonally. It supports 256K colours. The brightness and the backlight time are adjustable. You can choose from many innovative themes that utilize the touch screen
Just below the display are the Send, Clear, and End/Power keys. The left spine has the charger/headset jack, volume rocker and sound profile key. The right spine is home to the keyguard lock and the MP3/camera key. The camera lens with a self-portrait mirror and flash is on the back. The MicroSD card slot is located behind the phone's battery.
The feature set for the LG Prada is pretty significant too. There's a huge phone book which will accept 1000 entries including four numbers, email address and a memo. Contacts can be grouped, assigned a caller ID photo and any of ten polyphonic ringtones. Or you can add your own MP3 ringtones. Other features include FM radio tuner, speakerphone, Bluetooth 2.0, email support, voice recorder, calendar, unit converter, world clock, calculator, alarm clock, text and multimedia messages and a vibrate mode

The LG Prada comes with a 2.0-megapixel camera with plenty of settings. The Prada also has a built-in camcorder with two resolutions (128x96 and 176x144). It supports MP3, WAV, AAC, AAC+, and AAC++ files, and you don't need any special software to get tunes into the phone.
The standard battery is an Li-Ion 800mAh with standby time rated at 300 hours and talk time at 3 hours.
