I got the Prada LG the day it launched in London after calling for weeks to find out when it was going to finally show up in O2 stores. The packaging is beautiful, the phone is beautiful, the quality on all calls and texts has been fantastic. I've now had it for 2 and a half months and still love it - not a single regret. Like most new phones, it is difficult to break your old habits and learn the best way to use the features; going from a traditional phone to a touch screen made this slightly more difficult. It took me about 2 weeks to adjust to hitting the right buttons when texting and the T9 dictionary needs expanding, but I love this phone. I still haven't touched the MP3 player or FM radio (I have an iPod), but the camera puts out great pictures and is very easy to use.

Pros - face it - it's beautiful. It also works as well as my previous phone (Motorola Razr).

Cons - difficult to use in bright sunshine, which is luckily not much of an issue in the UK.

I recommend this phone to any label-savvies out there. People still stop and stare every time I take it out and are constantly asking if they can play with it. I have had no trouble with battery life - I travel frequently and have never even taken the charger with me unless I was going for more than 3 nights. I have used it in Europe and in the US with no problems whatsoever. Way to go LG and thank you for giving me a fashionable AND functional phone.

It's very shiny, and picks up smudges quite easily. It's also incredibly thin, around 11mm. The screen works like a trackpad on a laptop, so you can only use your finger. When you make a call it switches off the touch sensitive screen, but there's a button on the side that allows you to dial numbers whilst talking (handy for phoning call centres).

Set it to the blue theme and it looks a lot like OSX, the default Prada theme is black and white, and although stylish gets boring quickly. There's also a fish and butterfly theme, where you can interact with an animated fish or butterfly by touching the screen.

Using the camera and video recorder is great fun, as the whole screen is taken up by the picture. You can save images to the SD card that comes with the phone, and then access them on your PC via a USB cable.

You can flick through listings similar to the iPhone, but it's a bit fiddly and doesn't have the rubber band effect. The MP3 player works well, but because of the lack of a headphone socket you need to use the adapter that's included in the box.

Apart from the touchscreen it doesn't have any other features that you can't find on other mobile phones, but it looks fantastic and is really fun to use.

i bought this mobile phone after am sorry to say getting ripped of on ebay buying the viewty ku990, the prada mobile is no were near as good as the lg viewty, but it has just as good looking,the memory is very pour, 2 pictures and 1 song and the phone mem is full,there for you just can not get by with out a mem card, if your into music then a 2gb card would be enough, but what ever the case a mem card will needed if you want to store stuff, but all n all it is a very good phone nice looking and the tutch screen performs well,and it is very simple to use, and for me as a member of the older geniration then that can only be a big plus,its a great phone,like it loads...........

i got this phone a few days ago and i tell you i already adapted to the touch screen. trust me texting isn't as hard as people say it is!!
camera is pretty good too for a 2 mega pixel camera and the camcoder is also great with very clear playback.
overall i would say that this phone wouldn't be my primary but it would definitely be with me on week-ends. quite a few basic features are missing for example you can not mark more than 1 picture which can be a bit annoying. finally the battery isn't sony erricson standart but good enough to last for 2-3 days

Had this phone for around a year after it first came out, loved every second of it and it never went wrong on me. However one day my mother put it through the washing machine and that was the end of it. i dont like to go back on phones i've had i like to try new stuff out which is the only reason for not re-purchasing, but since i've had problems with my sony ericcson very tempted to get it again.

I'll start off by saying what a wonderful phone; full of useful features, easy to use and slim enough not to worry your average pocket. Unfortunately the reliability does not reflect how thoughtfully it was designed and I have experienced yet another problem with a LG Prada phone. This is my third.
The first was in the shop DOA because the slot for the memory card would not retain the card.
The second phones menus deteriorated through slow to freezing even with an empty memory card but this was within 28 days so I could get an exchange.
This, my third has suffered a more final problem; menus could only be exited using the end button, then the touch screen would not respond at all. Finally in an attempt to reboot I switched it off, removed and replaced the battery but now it will not even turn on. I am now faced with continuing to pay my bill while my phone is sent off for repair.

I believed LG had grown into a company that could rival Nokia and Sony but so far with this, my first and more than likely last product from them they have failed to fulfill my expectations.

And one more thing - LG's response from there online customer service was to post them a letter. A supposed player in the electronics business will only take complaints by post. How can you trust them to make good equipment if they can't even use email. It seams LG are still the poor cousins of the electronics world.

This is my second Prada phone. I absolutely love it which is why I bought another one. It's easy to use, not too big or small, stylish looking and does the job well. Perfect!!

The LG Prada phone had been recommended as a best buy by Which? magazine. With a score of 66%; the highest score being 69% I thought i had made a sound investment. Even at the RRP of over £300 I though that was vastly overpriced, so opted to purchase a new handset via Ebay for a little ovr £120....upon using the phone for several months now, I am of the opinnion that even that price is vastly over inflated.

Pros are that it looks nice and sexy, and is incredibly light...so light in fact, that I even forgot I'd left it in my pocket and not realising it was there, mistakenly washed it...I can confirm that it failed the biggest durability test of all...having said that, I don't believe weight is always a pro...the texting functionality is also easy to use, apart from the occasions where the varying buttons forget that they are more than one letter, and decide to stick at the first option....also, the MP3 player is pretty good, fantastic had you wanted an IPOD. Calling is relatively easy, as you'd expect from a phone and the external buttons are pretty self explanatory.

Now, following the Pros; if you can call them pros, on to the cons...well, Which? gave the Prada phone 4 out of 5 stars for durability, Why and How? After a month, the Prada signature strip faded and all the nice sexy silver lining rubbed off to reveal a sleak black inner core, which then scratched as easy as running a knife through butter...just like the rest of the phone really....I found the Prada easily scratches and the front screen suffers from wear and tear far too easily. The 2mp camera is shockingly bad, so bad it fails to take any clear photos, even in daylight. I also don't like the fact that the headphones provided are USB only...interesting choice and I can see why they went for that option...the USB port obviously doubles up with it also used to link to the PC, but that means the headphones are not to be used in any other device.

To sum up, you could easily spend £30 on a phone that would quite satisfactorly carry out the same functions and not look like a piece of garbage after one months use.

I wanted a contract phone so i got the Prada phone from the orange shop, the first thing that annoyed me was that orange will not insure this phone for some unknown reason. the second was that when texting it gets stuck on the W and wont stop typing it even when you press other letters! You have to turn the phone off and start all over again! So i called orange and they replaced the phone. my new phone came the day after and it does exactly the same thing except this one won't let me store anything in the phone. I now have 6 pics and 2 songs and it says it is full even though i bougfht a 2gb memory card for the phone from the orange shop! I am really disapointed with it and am calling orangwe tomorrow to get a different phone! I had the first phone for 3 days and just got the new one this morning. Overall i am entirely disappointed with the quality of the phone and would not recomend buying the phone as it is a complete waste of time! For such a pretty phone it doesnt perform well at all and i will definatly be going back to getting a sony ericsson tomorrow!!!!
