LG KF310

 LG KF310 Discontinued
16th August 2008

The LG KF310 is a slightly odd 3G phone from this prolific Korean manufacturer. While most modern handsets sprout buttons and control keys all over the place, the KF310 appears to be almost shockingly minimalist when it comes to design.

 

 KF310 detail When closed, the main feature of the KF310 is the unusually simple navigation key which might make you think that the handset only has a limited number of features. But in fact, the KF310 comes with a 2 megapixel camera plus a secondary video calling camera, an MP3 player, microSD expandable memory, an email client and web browser.. pretty much everything that you would expect to find in a modern handset. It simply seems that the designers of the KF310 wanted to make it as simple as possible.

 LG KF310 whiteIt isn't a very high-specification phone - the display on the KF310 is a 2" 176 x 220 pixel panel, Bluetooth is limited to version 1.2 and not the more common 2.0, there's no mention of autofocus or flash for the camera and there doesn't seem to be a standard audio jack socket.

One good thing about the LG KF310 is price - it is one of the cheapest 3G mobile phones around, priced at roughly the same level as Nokia's entry-level 3G 3120. 3 Ireland have the KF310 listed for just €99 as a prepay handset, 3 Australia lists it for AU$199.. in both cases nearly the least expensive of all phones listed.

It's a reasonably light weight 3G device at 95 grams [Note 1], talktime is around 3 to 3.5 hours [Note 2] with up to 12 days standby time. Overall dimensions are 94 x 47 x 17mm [Note 3]. There seems to be two different colour combinations for the KF310: black and a two-tone black/white combo , although the black one appears to be more common.

The LG KF310 is available now in certain markets.

  • Note 1: Some LG figures and the 3 network say 102 grams.
  • Note 2: Although LG Ireland say over 5 hours talk on 3G which we think is unlikely.
  • Note 3: Some LG figures quote 97 x 48 x 17mm.
