LG KT520

 LG KT520 Discontinued
29th July 2008

According to LG, the LG KT520 is a phone aimed at prepay customers wanting "basic functionality". From this statement, you'd think that the LG KT520 was a cheap-and-cheerful device with not much to offer.. but it has a surprisingly good technical specification which makes the KT520 quite possibly more high-tech than the phone you have in your pocket right now.

 LG KT520 On the surface, the LG KT520 looks like a fairly unassuming slider phone. But underneath, this is a 3.5G device with HSDPA high-speed data, a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus plus a secondary video calling camera, a 2.2" QVGA high-contrast display, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.0, a pretty comprehensive multimedia player and microSD expandable memory, plus a web browser and email client.

One unusual feature with the LG KT520 is the "finger mouse" embedded into the navigation key to make one-fingered navigation easier. It's also worth pointing out that the display has a 2000:1 contrast which should make it very easy to read.

A couple of notable omissions are the lack of an FM radio and the camera appears to have no flash. But then the KT520 is designed to be good value for money, and it's pretty feature packed as it is.

Internal memory is a modest 35MB, but this can be expanded by up to 4GB using an optional microSD card. Overall, the KT520 measures 101 x 50 x 15mm and weighs 97 grams which is pretty good for a 3.5G device. The internal 800 mAh battery is capable of 3 hours 20 minutes talktime and 10.6 days standby time.

We don't know how much the LG KT520 will cost, but if it is aimed at pay-as-you-go customers then it won't be too expensive. There's no release date for the phone either.

From what we can see, the LG KT520 has the potential to be a very good value phone that easily offers all the features that most people would ever need. Give it a few months, and the KT520 may well be a very welcome addition to somebody's Christmas stocking.
