To those like me who took advantage of the 18mth contract 1100 mix & match for £21 per month in March last year three mobile will allow you to upgrade 3 months in advance, my upgrade is due early June. I took two contracts out, one for me one for the mrs both under our seperate names at the time and three have said if I upgrade both contracts again at the same time then I will receive 2000 free minutes or texts plus 300 3 to 3 minutes plus 150 video call minutes. Thats 2450 minutes for a total cost of £21 if I upgrade to a smililar phone, however If on one of the contracts i go for the LG Renoir which is the Apple I Phones competitor and many many reviews I have read say this phone is so much better in terms of what it can do and its functionality although some will argue that the apple is better. The cost of upgrading to this phone is £42 per month which is far more value for money in terms of what the I phone would offer in terms of minutes and functionality.

Anyway the verdict is open to you guys, I know its not available to everyone but to those who it is its a cracking deal. Especially if it can be done online and poss quidco

8 Megapixel Camera
LGs KC910 takes super-sharp pictures, thanks to an 8 megapixel camera with Schneider-Kreuznach optics and a Xenon flash. ISO sensitivity, which determines how much light the cameras sensor takes in, can be set as high as 1600, increasing the cameras performance in dark conditions.

Touch Shot
Users can select an object to focus on simply by selecting and touching a focal point on the phones 3.0-inch wide screen. After touching an area to focus, users can take a photo simply by removing their finger from the screen. This feature means that users will never miss a shot while searching for the right button to press or get a blurry image because of camera shake.

Creative Shot Modes
The KC910s shot modes include:
- Beauty Shot: Automatically removing spots and imperfections of peoples faces, Beauty Shot makes sure that faces appear bright and clear in photos. It creates more attractive looking portraits without the need to use Photoshop software.
- Art Shot: Unlock your creativity with its Art Shot mode. Create an artistic masterpiece with effects including, black & white, warm & cold exposure and more.
- Smile Shot: Automatically triggers the shutter when camera detects a smile
- Continuous Shot: Fires nine shots in rapid succession
- Panorama Shot: Allows the phone to take panoramic images
* The LG-KC910 also includes Face Tracking and Blink Detection

Dolby Mobile
Dolby Mobile provides rich, vibrant audio as well as more powerful bass to the music listening experience. At the heart of Dolby Mobile is an integrated suite of audio processing technologies which includes:
- Natural Bass - provides clean, powerful bass extension without artificial side effects
- Sound Space for Headphones - adds spaciousness and impact to headphone listening from stereo content.
- High-Frequency Enhancer reinforces the highs that often suffer when music and other content are digitally compressed

DivX/Xvid Playback
The LG-KC910 also makes it easy to watch high-quality DivX/Xvid video right out of the box. The handset includes the popular DivX/Xvid codec, a portable format compatible with a large and growing number of devices and platforms. This means there is no need to specially encode videos for the phone, transferring video files is as simple as drag and drop.

Slow-motion Video Recording (@ 120 fps)/ Fast-motion Video Recording (@5fps)
LG-KC910 can record QVGA video at up to 120fps, which allows it to catch every detail in slow motion, making it perfect for capturing fast moving objects, such as those at sporting events. The LG-KC910 can also handle the opposite extreme, slowing recording down to 5 fps to record very slow-moving objects with a time lapse effect.

A-GPS/Jogging Buddy
LG KC910 supports A-GPS ensuring that users always know their exact location. The handset also offers the ultimate convenience for exercise enthusiasts by using the advanced GPS technology. Whether walking, running or jogging, KC910s Jogging Buddy provides up-to-the-second information including distance and time, and keeps an exercise log for you.

The latest 3G Networks/ Wi-Fi
With HSDPA connectivity at 7.2Mbps and seamless connections through Wi-Fi, users can browse the internet at very fast speeds.

Personalized Widgets and Active Flash UI
Users can choose widgets with customizable settings to appear on the idle screen. Widgets are easily added by dragging them from the menu bar. The widget screen is oriented vertically and users can scroll through widgets with the flick of a finger. Users can choose from a variety of colour options for the idle screen. With its online widget function the KC910 provides instant access to information like weather forecasts on its idle screen. Real time weather data from carriers online services will help users be prepared for unexpected weather.

I promise you it is just read some of the reviews on this phone its amazing and has far superior functionalities than the i phone
my mates got one its crap iphone 10 times better
my mates got the renoir and the iphone and he tells me the iphone is crap in comparison, whatever rocks your boat!
A decent enough phone but with no 3.5mm headset plug its not in the same league as the iphone as a multimedia phone,
Ive had both and sold the iphone, stuck with the renoir.
Camera brilliant for a phone camera.
Dolby music for mobile is great quality, but the lack of the headphine jack is my one and only annoyance.

iphone is good, amazing infact. But personally I like having a good camera on my phone and I got the renoir on a deal more than half the price and with unlimited internet. Got a separate ipod.
I'm yet to see a phone that does EVERYTHING perfectly. So until that day, people are going to agree and people are going to disagree!
Went off track there...
As for this deal itself, very cold!!!
Who needs that many minutes?
freezing cold

also, it really isn't better than an iphone...
Suppose if you need a great camera then you'd consider this, but personally I would never swap my iPhone for this - can almost guarantee the interface wont be as good, and the design looks pretty naff. Each to their own, but £42?? for how many minutes??

Interface is nowhere near as good. I like the design tho.

I have a Renoir and would prefer the iPhone (the touch sensitivity is somewhat better as are the apps). However, it's camera is vastly superior to that on the iPhone and I just love the Renoir's drag and drop Divx playback (no conversion required).

That said, the Renoir is a bit cheeky calling itself a multimedia phone when it can't decipher ID3 tags or decode .m4b audiobooks. The music player forces mp3s to play in alphabetical order but you can get around this by navigating to your music folder on the memory card, sorting them by 'name' and clicking a file to initiate playback. This usually lines them up in correct track order. It's a pain but it's workable.

The Dolby NR feature is a bit redundant IMHO unless you've got material converted from hissy analogue sources. Strangely, when using the built-in speaker, all music actually sounds brighter and louder with Dolby on but when you use headphones you find it cuts a significant amount of tonal range (as you might expect).
