LG KP235 and KP230

 LG KP235 Discontinued
6th July 2008

The LG KP235 is a low cost clamshell phone with Bluetooth and a very basic digital camera which is available on a variety of networks, and the LG KP230 is an almost identical handset that is exclusive to Vodafone.

The specifications are pretty basic - the main screen is a 1.7" 128 x 160 pixel TFT panel, the camera is VGA resolution 0.3 megapixel unit, the LG KP235 and KP230 both support Bluetooth, GPRS and have a WAP browser.

At 79 grams, the KP230/KP235 is a very lightweight phone, and although it isn't the most attractive phone we have ever seen, it certainly looks quite smart. Talktime is about 3.5 hours with up to 16 days standby time.

 LG KP230 Some obvious things missing are an MP3 player, removable memory, USB connectivity or any other high-tech gadgetry. The KP230 and KP235 really can be considered as entry level devices with the useful addition of Bluetooth.

LG's recommended retail price of these phones is a staggering €99 (£80) when bought as part of a prepay package. Considering that you can get the excellent Nokia 6300 for around the same money, then it's clear that LG is overpricing the phone. Shopping around, we found that Orange have it in the UK for £40 (reduced from £80), Vodafone Germany for €80 and T-Mobile Germany for €70. These prices are a little more competitive

Both the LG KP230 and LG KP235 are available now from a variety of networks across Europe.
