5.0 out of 5 stars Great Phone, 6 Oct 2012
By 
This review is from: LG KS360 Etna Sim Free Mobile Phone - Blue (Electronics)
I have heard a lot of complaints about this phone freezing or shutting down however I got mine over 5 years ago and it has been the best phone I have ever had for such a small price. So I don't know whether people have just got a badly made one but mine was perfect- only breaking down recently as I left it outside in the rain over night (by accident of course :-D).

My Pros on this phone include:
-large buttons on the keyboard so unlike my new phone you couldn't easily press the wrong buttons when texting
-an ok camera which does the job
-touch screen when dialling people
-touch screen is very accurate
-micro sd card slot so you can have a decent amount of memory on it (3.2gb I think it is)
-a button on the keyboard allowing you to quickly get to the write message screen
-long battery life mine stayed on for about a week even when I was listening to music for long periods of time most days
-a built in MP3 player and Radio
-large amounts of photos can be stored
-Bluetooth so can be connected to other phones easily
-can be drop many times and doesn't easily get damaged (mine has been dropped in all conditions and probably about 3 times a week in the last few years with no significant change in appearance or performance)
-voice record system
-messages are viewed in a conversational way so you don't have to jump between the inbox and sent messages when texting people - this is one of my favourite things about this phone ;)

My Cons on this phone include:
-only touch screen when dialling a number to call
-camera quality is not amazing
-video recordings are generally short I never found a way around this
-if you want to use your own headphones or earphones you have to buy an adapter which costs between £1.50-£5 depending whether you want a genuine adapter
-to listen to the radio you need to have your headphones/adapter connected as this is where the phone gets its signal from
-it cannot be connected through wifi like alot of recent phones so i thought this should be noted
-this phone is known to have crashing problems anywhere from the screen freezing to doing what it wants or turning off - I DID NOT HAVE THESE PROBLEMS BUT I KNOW PEOPLE WHO HAVE

So in my own view as I had no issues with this phone even through the many years of abuse I put it though I think it deserves a good review and I think it is a great cheap phone with many good qualities that I look for AND I WOULD DEFINITELY BUY THIS PHONE AGAIN! however if you want a smart phone, or a phone with an exceptional camera then this is not the phone for you :-D hope this helps!
