LG KE970 Shine Diamond review

AdvantagesGrt stylish design.

DisadvantagesCostly

"...is quite astonishing. The new LG KE970 Shine is the first of the shiny devices from the Korean manufacturer. It really does have some serious horsepower in this thing and is one of the most advanced GSM handsets by LG and quite obviously from the images below the most attractive. The phone comes with a huge amount of features from the 2 mega pixel camera with auto focus right the way don to the microsd memory card. This is most defiantly going to ..." Read review

BORN TO SHINE! Review with images

AdvantagesThe look and feel of quality.

Disadvantages2 mega pixel camera.

"...■ The LG Shine KE970 ■ With it's stylish mirrored casing to front, and it's brushed steel finish to the back, it has to be be the most aesthetically pleasing of mobile phones on the market to date. Measuring 99.8 x 50.6 x 13.8 mm, and weighing in at 119 g. The LG Shine is a solid and beautiful piece of equipment. When I went to choose a new mobile phone I scoured many mobile shops in search of a slim, neat, attractive design ..." Read review

Shiny Happy LG owner :)

AdvantagesA very attractive phone- lots of features

DisadvantagesPicks up finger marks easily

"The LG KE970 'Shine' Mobile phone I've recently traded my faithful old LG chocolate for the LG KE970, also known as the LG Shine. After having my previous phone a year- I was so impressed with LG as mobile phone providers it felt an obvious choice to stick with LG and upgrade to the Shine from LG's 'Black Label' series. It can be bought from most stores/websites that sell mobile phones and depending on which network you are wanting it on- the ..." Read review

Shiny, Happy People!

AdvantagesAesthetics, slim, small and stylish

DisadvantagesSoftware problems, basic mp3 player, not technologically advanced enough.

"...abouit my new acquisition, the LG Shine KE970. Previously, I've been known to change my phone roughly every 6-8 months, and after spending 6 months on o2 Pay as You Go after my last contracted ended, the pro's of being tied into a monthly contract far outweighed the cons of being on Pay As You Go, even as o2 are constantly bringing out extra incentives to stay on it. I was attracted to the LG Shine purely down to the fact it was the only good-looking ..." Read review

LG - let it shinnnnnnnnnne!!

AdvantagesPretty, hardy and great features for a mid range phone

DisadvantagesIf you looking for a top range phone you will want to go up a bracket.

"Having recently updated to an LG viewty, i thought my shine days were over. However, the problem with a touchscreen phone is that when the screen breaks, its essentially game over. After a touching farewell service (on ebay) i am now back to my lovely little shine. Im not disappointed though. The shine really is a lovely phone. I thought id show homage to it with a little review, so people who are thinking about getting a new phone but dont want ..." Read review

BEAUTIFUL LG SHINE KE970

Advantageseasy to use scroller, handy mirror screen, good battery life

Disadvantagesscratches lightly showed up on the back

"...use it for quick fixes. The LG PC suite made transferring data from the phone to the computer or vice versa simple and easy. You simply connect the phone to the computer using the USB cable and you get a selection of control such as Multimedia, Sychronisation, Contents Manager (which I used to transfer music, pictures etc to the phone) and when you open the software it is easy to transfer data. You just look in the files on your computer (which ..." Read review

Love Shines!

AdvantagesStylish, great features, damn cool

Disadvantagesscratchability.

"The LG shine is an impressively functional and stylish phone, which I have been more had ever since I purchased it on an O2 contract three months ago. This is a really well finished product whose design will impress you from the moment you take it out of its funky box and put it on charge, where what moments ago looked to be a mirrored face transforms to show you the stylist and fluid flash background wallpapers or electric blue logo. Anybody who's ..." Read review

Black OR Pink!

AdvantagesBeautiful phone, great applications, great calling features.

DisadvantagesGets dirty easily, scrolling is difficult, texting is slow.

"This Christmas, I tore off the wrapping paper to find a beautifully simply decorated box, closed uniquely using magnets. Within the box I found a pink phone and numerous accessories. I know what you're thinking. Pink. But this phone is black! I hear you cry. Yes, I know it's black. But mine is pink, and I love it. Not only does it have numerous helpful features within the phone; alarm clocks, various connecting devices, video and camera - but the ..." Read review

What a crap phone...

AdvantagesBig screen, roller navigation.

DisadvantagesFlush buttons, sliding mechanism

"I got this phone 'free' after upgrading to it when renewing my contract with Orange. I had it for one day, then decided to return it as I really, really hated it. '''What it looks like''' I had the pink one, the colour instantly attracted me to it. It has a really big screen which I think is one of the distinguishing features of this phone. It turns into a mirror, hence the 'shine' part of the phone name. It is made of brushed steel which gives ..." Read review

Love this!

AdvantagesThe trendy looking mirror and the camera

Disadvantagesdifficult to see the screen in sunlight

"I have had this phone now for just over one year and I have to say that I am extremely impressed with it. It looks trendy with its mirror with looks a lot more shiny then it does on the photos, the mirror is also excellent quality and you can see yourself very clearly in it. The actual phone itself is small and surprisingly thin which makes it easy to fit into your pocket or even a small handbag. One of my favourite features of this phone is that ..." Read review

Shine on

AdvantagesSleek, easy to use

Disadvantagesnon customisable

"The LG Shine is probably one of the classiest phones on the market right now. The main draw to this phone is the sleek, elegant design - the slider being one of the best and most durable available on any phone. It has all the normal whistles and bells, such as the bluetooth, camera, and media player. One thing to note with regards to the bluetooth connectivity is the added security inbuilt in the phone - making it nigh on impossible for "snarfers" ..." Read review

Shine with the LG Shine

AdvantagesSleek design, ease of use, good features

DisadvantagesKeys sometimes stick, ringtone could be louder

"I recently took out the LG Shine on contract. When i recieved the phone i was firstly really impressed with the way it looked. It was light weight, thin and had the sliding feature which i love in a phone. I also really liked the scroller which i thought was really original. When i switched it on i found it was really easy to use and fell in love instantly. When i went to send my first text message i found that the keys stick a little bit and ..." Read review

Not as good as it looks

Advantageslooks ok..

Disadvantageswaste of money

"I dont own this phone, but my boyfriend used to, and the very reason he got rid of it, because simply it was a waste of time. If your planning on getting a phone that just looks fancy but hardly does anything, and the performance of the phone is a bit dodgy then go for this one, because it does nothing but look just a little bit \'cool\' The phone froze at least once every week, and it wasnt just his, two of my friends have got the phone, and they ..."
