"Style.. and a little less substance"

The LG KT520 is a solid phone, no doubt about it. It looks good for those into their image and does pretty much exactly what you want it to do as a mobile phone.
The battery life is very good, mine has lasted a whole weekend without being charged before. Screen size is also nice for a phone of this size.
My problems have arisen from the motion sensor in the middle of the phone. It is a small sensor that you can run your finger over and scroll through lists, texts, etc. In my opinion it is more of a hindrance than a help. The moment a speck of dust gets near it, your phone will start scrolling through everything at high speed.
The only other problem I have encountered while using this phone is that it has a tendency to turn itself off randomly when the slider is closed.
This being said, there are plenty of features and positives to this phone, from the previously mentioned battery length and general look to a decent camera and media player.
If you like the look of this phone, I wouldn't try to stop you getting it, maybe shop around a little before you settle on it, but you could do a great deal worse.
