LG KF305, flip phone lovers rejoice – somewhat…

Flip-phones or as some like to call them, clamshell form factor phones have been very popular throughout the history of cellphones (which is still fairly short to be honest). While some clamshell phones have been fairly high-end and cutting edge  (just take a look at the soon to be released Celsius X VI II Papillon flip phone which is priced at $300,000 and among other things charges itself when it is flipped open or closed) the LG KF305 mobile phone is not one of them and is a simple phone for people interested in the simpler things in life.

LG is an innovative company that produces some of the most interesting devices available on the market. They might not be the most expensive or even the most high-tech but they are always intriguing and eye-catching. The LG KF305 cellphone is certainly not high-tech, in fact the LG KF305 flip phone is fairly low tech but we do hope that like other LG phones this one too will intrigue us.

First of all, the LG KF305 cellphone has tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900 MHz) and so is mainly for use in Europe and Asia with roaming available in North America. The LG KF305 mobile phone does not have Wi-Fi or 3G connectivity, but the LG KF305 cellphone does have Bluetooth.

The two screens on the LG KF305 flip phone are hardly impressive with the internal screen having a 2.2″ TFT display with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. And the external one is a 1.3″ approximately color TFT display. The LG KF305 does feature a 2.0 Mega Pixel camera however there is no flash or auto focus.

The LG KF305 flip phone doesn’t do too badly on the multimedia side of things and in addition to an FM tuner also feature audio and video playback with support for the following file formats: MP3, AAC, AAC+, AAC++ and WMA audio files and MPEG4 and H.263 video files. In addition to the 40 MB internal memory, the LG KF305 also features a microSD card slot to enable up to 4 GB of expandable memory.

But the main strength of the LG KF305 comes from its stylish good looks. This is a phone that you will probably make you ooh and ahh the first time you see it for its looks alone.

Although we question the addition of the four shortcut keys just below the internal screen on the LG KF305 which we think will be hard to reach and annoying to use but it is quite possible that one may grow used to them.

In summary, the LG KF305 is a low end flip phone designed to please with its good looks and not do too much else but functions very well as a phone and sometimes we forget that that is what cellphones are for.
