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 ..."

Let it Shine!!!

Advantageslooks great

Disadvantages3G version comes without the memory card

"...of all I have the LG U970 version of the Shine. The only difference between this and the KE 970 are that this is 3G and doesn't come with a memory card (it has 575mb internal memory). This is my third LG phone and so those of you Nokia / Motorola lovers don't be afraid to try something new. This LG is a vast improvement on the earlier LG phones i.e. U8110 which I found had terrible reception. The U880 somewhat restored my faith in LG as a phone ..." Read review

LG SHINE

AdvantagesEasy to use, stylish. durable

DisadvantagesNone I love this phone!

"This phone is amazing, I have owned it for about 3-4 months and dont have a single complaint. I have had loads of phones in the past few years and this is undoubtedly the best. It is small, stylish and so easy to use, with every feature anyone could possibly need. Navigation around the menus is easy, with a sensitive scrolling key, but not too sensitive! It has excellent battery life, I usually charge mine once every 3-4 days and I use it quite a ..." Read review

My LG Shine and Me

AdvantagesCamera photos are decent if you can get a picture, its relatively cheap to buy .

DisadvantagesHeavy, unattractive, uncomfortable to use, easy to scratch so the 'Shine' fades to a grey blur.

"I have had my LG Shine for roughly six months now, and I am very bored with it now to be honest. This phone I find has very limited features, I remember being on the bus just after I had bought it looking at the instruction manual and thinking "have I actually made a decent decision here?" and as time goes on, I feel as though I made a wrong decision. The LG Shine's main promotional feature was the fact that it was shiny. Well, after six months of ..." Read review

Quick review of LG Shine KE970

"Im being totally honest. This phone looks good on the outside, but when you dive a little deeper into the specification and performance of this piece of hardware it does let it down severely. Extremely slow loading times if you have a few pages of images or videos stored. Does not have MP4 Video Recording (Only poor qaulity 3gp) - Although there is an MP3 Player on the phone which is useful, only a few medium sized MP3's can be put into it. (because of the very low internal moble phone memory of about 45MB). Even with a 1gb Memory card inserted into the phone, it is still not possible to play songs stored on the card with the MP3 player. Which is kind of a bummer to say the least.

Very Good... Apart From That Screen!

AdvantagesStylish, Packed full of features and memory, becoming more reasonably priced.

DisadvantagesMirror screen makes outdoor use difficult.

"...the best deals on the LG Shine are to be had in the "Contract Phone" area. I got a deal on the phone through the price comparison site Kelkoo and pay £35 a month with 500 mins and 500 texts included as well as a "free" handset. The best bit is that there are quarterly "cashbacks" in the deal so including these I actually pay only £17.50 a month. In terms of features the phone has had everything to satisfy my needs with plenty of memory for documents, ..." Read review

LG Shine Pink

Advantagesattractive phone, addictive games, easy to use, quality camera, easy to download and upload data

Disadvantagespoor battery life, poor mp3 quality

"...the pink model of the LG Shine (KE970) on orange pay as you go, I think this phone is fantastic, looks great with it's highly individual mirror screen and brushed metal finish, talk quality is very good, I'm addicted to the bubble soccer game on it!! ( The fishing game isn't so good!) There are two things that slightly let this phone down though, the sound quality on the mp3 player is a little crackly when you turn the volume up, and the battery ..." Read review
