LG GW520 Review: A Wholesome Cookie: Conclusion

Final words

It almost feels like quite a few Cookie users acquire the sneaky thought they should've waited for this one. We'd go ahead and disclose them they don't need to feel cheated. The Cookie did a remarkable job (and still does) of making touchclassy screen so sweetly affordable, spirited and fun. The GW520 keeps up the momentum and even takes it further. It doesn't doom the Cookie to oblivion though. There will still be demand for basic touch phones that create sense and are so full of character.

The LG GW520 simply responds to a changed environment and boosts LG's presence in the touchclassy screen midrange. The upgrades it brings are of course vital but we still think the Cookie can comfortably co-exist with a 3G enabled QWERTY messenger. They both taracquire the same audience, which will welcome we guess the diverse supply in terms of form factor and features.

There is no doubt the Cookie caused a stir in the lower touchclassy screen ranks and the full-scale response of the competition shows what a successful concept it was. LG just couldn't afford to be complacent and the GW520 is their response to the massive attack on the Cookie by Samsung.

QWERTY messengers are usually high-discontinue stuff and trespassing on smartphone territory is always dangerous. The LG GW520 is focused enough to not scare retribution. It knows its place and doesn't lose sight of its key objective - to engage the Samsung S5600 Preston while the Cookie handles the Star and the Corby.

In the end, the LG GW520 is filling a niche for basic and affordable QWERTY messengers and we sure don't mind. It would've been near perfect with an S-Class UI, but we know the interface is still too precious to spare. Anyway, we can't really hrecent that against the GW520 in this price range.

What's more, the current price of around 160 euro is even less of an issue considering that carriers will perhaps find the phone quite appealing and will drop the price even more by subsidizing it heavily. The GW520 may count on the kind of popularity the Cookie and the KS360 enjoyed with Orange and Vodafone.

A 3G enabled carrier-subsidized QWERTY messenger with social networking on its mind and with a solid data and messaging plan in its pocket sounds fine enough for the taracquire audience by our books. The fine bldiscontinue (and a solid upgrade) of two already fine handsets makes it even better.
