Review: LG GW300 Multimedia Single-SIM GSM Mobile Phone

Pin It

LG launches a new handset, LG GW300, which is a sleek multimedia phone. It resembles the BlackBerry to some extent and some even term it as the ‘LG Berry’.

The set comes with a second generation QWERTY keypad and is a single SIM GSM phone.

The positives of this particular model -- the LG GW300 -- can be summed up as follows:

  • An inbuilt browser with an inbuilt yahoo search option on the Home screen.

  • Pre-loaded applications such as Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites.

  • One hour voice recorder.

  • Supports up to 4 GB of external memory; itself has 26 MB of internal memory, which gives ok performance with light applications.

  • FM radio which operates with headset plugged in.

  • WAP enabled, with USB and Bluetooth connectivity.

  • Pre-configured Photo editor is provided.

  • MP3 Player and Recorder with good quality speakers.

  • Carries a special secret memory which is protected by a code.

  • PC suite available, which efficiently synchronizes the Phonebook, etc.

  • A key feature is the availability of an Anti-theft mobile tracker which, in such a situation, sends the stolen mobile’s IMEI no., its current location, and the phone no. of whoever’s SIM has been put in it.

  • Extensive service center support all over India.

  • Appreciable amount of standby {up to 36 hrs} and talk time {up to 3 hrs}.

The LG GW300, however, has the following negatives as well:

  • A 2 MegaPixel ordinary functioning camera, without flash light, which makes the camera of LG GW300 rather unimpressive.

  • No third party application support.

  • Average in appearance.

  • No Wi-Fi or 3G support.

  • As compared to its peers, LG GW300 supports only one SIM card, while other QWERTY multimedia phones from Micromax, Intex, Lava , Zen, Olive, etc. provide the option of two GSM SIM cards, and that too in the same price range.

MARKET PRICE Rs. 4200/= (In Kanpur, INDIA)

Thus, the LG GW300 can be given an over-all rating of 6 on 10.
