LG KF600 Venus - now just £69.99 (or possibly less) delivered on T-Mobile PAYG @ Play.com

Found 5th Feb 2009Made hot 5th Feb 2009
Play.com have reduced the price of this magnificent LG KF600 "Venus" slider from £99.99 to 69.99 on T-Mobile pay as you go with free delivery. Many sites are still selling this phone upwards of £140, so this is quite the bargain.

It's also possible that you could get 5% off using one of the attatched discounts.

The LG Venus has two front screens, the lower of which is a touch screen with haptic vibration feedback. The beauty of having a touchscreen for navigation is that the buttons can change to match whatever feature youre using. For example, if youre using the MP3 player, there will be a play, pause, stop, forward and backward button. Or from the main menu the buttons will change to your favourite short cuts such as messages, address book and calendar. The Venus also has a normal numeric keypad, its a slider phone. It has Bluetooth, email, a 2 megapixel camera and a music player supporting all common music formats. Memory can be expanded to 8GB using a microSD card.

The two screens seems a bit of a waste - why not just have one large screen - with the lower part displaying the same keys as before but making the entire thing a touch screen - so the phone would have far wider options.

hot... but would have been great if the phone had 3g and unlocked

Is this worth getting? I currently have a Sony Ericsson W900i which is 3G although I currently use none of the 3G functions... I need to replace it because it is rather screwed, it has survived being dropped in the sea once during a drunk episode and also being dropped in the toilet and it looks a rather sorry sight now.

What is the mp3 player like compared to walkman?

Also, would this be easy to unlock?

Many thanks

Its not going to be the most robust phone available, in comparison to SE replacing a cracked/damaged LCD will be more, spare parts are usually harder to get and usually expensiver... With music, SE have made their reputation from their music features, sound quality and loudness, the SE will be better in comparison. This is more of a nice looking handset rather than a reliable replacement for your existing SE handset.

Its possible to Unlock using VygisToolbox, so most phone shops should be able to unlock it for you, however some people have had problems with unlocking and reception afterwards, so it may need to be flashed too.

As above, I'd suggest that a new SE would have the better Walkman, and would be a generally better phone. I'd suggest the W880i available from Orange, as that's quite cheap at the moment.

I've been looking at the higher end W9xxi phones but they're generally still so expensive compared to this handset.

I was just about to edit my post to mention the w880 too lol its a good SE phone and the parts on these are readily available and quite cheap, so if you do break anything you can normally get it repaired

If you dont mind me asking which W9xxi where you looking for please???

Have too agree I went for the same deal got mine yesterday, again don't see the point of two front screens, after all its a Phone not a DS:-D

Would you say the w880i would be better for music than the KC550? I guess I'd like an ok camera too, whats that like on the w880i?

The W880i would be better for music, however the KC550 would be better for Camera... The W880i is a 2MP Camera, KC550 is 5MP... KF600 is a 3MP (not 2MP like in the description above...)

Take your cookie to CPW for a software update, Lg have released a new version which will sort out the restarting issue.

the camera on the KC550 is much better than on the W880. 5MP vs 2MP on the W880 it also has a lot more features.

DO NOT GET THIS PHONE - it's useless if you want to send texts - it gets frozen and you have to keep turning it on and off. I have had to use an old phone for nearly a year because it keeps going wrong - can't wait until I can upgrade - couple of months left to go!!

Just because you have a problem with your phone doesnt mean everyone else will have the same, if there was such a big issue with a handset they wouldnt still be making it or selling it... If your phone was new when you got it, it would have been covered by a 12 month warranty, anytime within that 12 months you could have had it repaired or replaced within that warranty... I wish people wouldnt put people off an item because of their personal dislike of an item, if you have a problem get it fixed or buy another handset...

I've had this phone since september and I;ve had no problems!

the camera on the w880i is pretty basic, 2MP and no flash but takes nice pictures in good light, plenty good enough to print out on 8" x 4" photo paper at those photo print machines in boots

I've had a w880i for just over a year now and I love it
