Like a bright torch in a claustrophobic cave, cell phones that are released after the KE970 would do well to follow its example in terms of features and design. The Shine provides a high benchmark against which cell phones made available after are going to be compared to.
The KE970 is encased in a stainless steel case giving it a certifiable heft and weight. The polished metal exterior lends it an elegant air that speaks of sophistication and gives a hint at the amazing features that lie beneath. The phone slides up and down to reveal the sleek number pad that responds very well to your actions. There are two more features on the phone that enable you to easily navigate through the menu system and allow new levels of interactivity. The scroll bar in the middle responds immediately to the slightest touch and the two buttons on either side of it enable further exploration of the menu’s sub-levels.
Feature packed and beautiful
The 2 Megapixel camera lets you take shots with the utmost quality and the included Autofocus feature makes sure that the pictures you take will be of high enough quality to merit being posted as your wallpaper. To ensure that you can take as many photos as you want without having to worry about filling up the internal memory of the phone, the microSD slot on the back will let you use cards that can hold Gigs of information.
Using the QVGA screen to view the menu system will be a definite balm to the eyes. You can also use the sharp display to view office documents through the viewer software.
When not in use the screen goes into sleep mode, which dissolves the menu system and gives the screen the likeness of a mirror reflecting everything within range. This level of sophistication can only be found in LG’s latest phone and will be a hallmark by which all consecutive phones will be judged.
